Cleveland Browns fans know not to expect a .500 season. And fans of England’s football team know their World Cups will begin with promises and end with curses. And this brings out the best (and worst) in them. And thank God for Twitter so we can know see their reactions.
Another week of wall-to-wall football, and another week of knowledge. Here’s what I (and hopefully you) learned.

Italy and England will kick off their World Cup schedules Saturday on a field that even the head groundsman admits is in “pretty bad shape.”
The last time we saw the World Cup in 2010, there were just a few Fantasy sites offering World Cup games out there. But now, there are a half-dozen or more offering Fantasy World Cup games.
