It's draw day!

It's here! It's here! It's here!

It feels a bit like Christmas morning. The excitement. The mystery. The intrigue.

I don't have much to add, so I'm gonna let the pros to the talking.

ESPN has seven pre-draw notes to read, plus a team-by-team breakdown. SI has a guide to the draw from Luis Bueno and Grant Wahl's travel guide for the World Cup. Yahoo!'s Martin Rogers provided his good, bad and ugly draw possibilities.

Also, the World Cup winner gets 18 million pounds as a jackpot.

England certainly thinks it has the goods to win the prize. Fabio Capello says he doesn't fear the group of death. Stevie G. and David Beckham also laud England as a championship caliber side.
