Tami has the unenviable task of taking Julie, who's still down in the dumps, on college tours, but Julie's not the only one faced with a tough decision.

World Cup Soccer
9:30 a.m./8:30c ESPN
Short on consequences but long on entertaining soccer, Brazil and its former colonial overseer, Portugal, meet on the final day of group action having already assured themselves a place in the knockout round. Single-named stars litter both lineups, though Brazil is without the services of the suspended Kaka and may need to rest a banged-up Elano. Entering play, Portugal sits second in Group G (meaning a round-of-16 match with the winner of Spain's group) but is riding a wave of confidence after Monday's 7-0 rout of North Korea, with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo capping the flood of goals. — Roger Leister
