World Cup in ASCII?

Forget HDTV (high definition), watch the World Cup 2006 in a whole new perspective - ASCII! ascii-wm.net offers two mirrors that you can telnet to and watch the world cup games in ASCII format. It appears that so many people enjoy this service that I wasn't even able to connect because there were too many connections already :( To check it out simply telnet to any of these two mirrors by opening up a terminal(*nix or Mac) or command prompt(windows):

telnet diego.ascii-wm.net 2006
or
telnet ascii-wm.net 2006

Btw, does anybody know where I can watch the whole games over the internet?

I don't have ESPN2 :(

P.S. Good job Poland today! I was very impressed how they played against Germany.
