While I'm still learning Ruby on Rails (But heck played with my first
hartl tutorial' gem in paperclip myself this past weekend) I am very
much a
database design and normalization kind of guy - if you can provide more
information on what your pool for the world cup entails I'd be more than
happy to help you work out the database information.

How does your pool work?  What sort of competition is it?  What sort of
data do you want to display (to dteremine the need for indeces) - what
you mean by 'fixtures'?

Off the top of my head a tournament tool database requires entrants,
and a table to track various picks.

I have thought about creating a 'tournament' application that would
tournament brackets based on the type of tournmament, entries, etc...

Anyone else interested in that?:)
