The FIFA World Cup kicks off today and Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask.com and other search engines have their special logos up today. The interesting thing is that in the US, Google.com does not have a logo for FIFA World Cup but rather has a Doodle for Jacques Cousteau. FIFA does not need an explanation.

Jacques Cousteau is a 100 today, he died on June 25, 1997 and was a well-known for co-developing the aqua-lung, as pictured in the Google Doodle. Here is a picture of the Jacques Cousteau Google Doodle:

Google Happy 100th Birthday Jacques Cousteau!

Love the JYC Doodle. You are only 100 yrs old on one day! France should have been honored with their most famous citizen on this one day.

The best in my opinion is by the non player, Ask.com. I like their page.
