I'm guessing you're going through a little World Cup withdrawl right now.

For the first time in three weeks, there are no games on TV. Right now, we'd be in the second half of the 10 a.m. game with one team pushing for the equalizer. Instead, we're doing something else ... like reading or working. Gross.

It's a Brazilian newspaper's breakdown of all 736 players in the World Cup that shows in which country they make their living.

This year, the English Premier League has the most player representatives with 117. Germany's Bundesliga follows with 84, followed by Italy's Serie A (80), Spain's La Liga (59) and France's Ligue 1 (47).

The graphic has its drawbacks because you can't scroll down all the way down to read all the stats. But, it looks cool and the information goes all the way back to 1994. Check it out.
