Hopefully the momentum continues.

Just crazy. And to think the us almost walked away with a tie with them and frankly should have. :). I could have defended better than that though. It was bad. Bad bad. Bad bad bad.

If it had been anyone but Brazil ... and in any tournament but the World Cup ... and if it had been played anywhere except Brazil ... I would have sworn that the players just out-and-out threw the game.

 

No closing down passing lanes. No man-marking. No movement by the defense at all.

I think you have to banish the Brazil game as a fluke. While Germany is capable of scoring, the only other World Cup match in which they scored more than two goals was against Portugal in another game when the opposition didn't show up. I can see Argentina giving them problems in the midfield and on set pieces.

 

I'll offer 2-1 Argentina.

 

Vamonos!

I'll go 0-0 with Argentina in the shoot out, 6-5.

At least they have teams from different continents ... those of European descent can go for Germany, those from South/Central America can go for Argentina. Unless they hate one of the teams then they can go for the other. (Or they know the sport and can pick a winner or the underdog.)

No prediction on a winner ... but I'll be surprised if more than 8 million watch. Two broadcast networks will have Golf, NASCAR from New Hampshire on TNT. ESPN isn't competing against itself (although the World Cup is on ESPN2 as well as ABC). Brazil's loss was the best rated game that did not include an American team. I am adjusting viewership up because of three factors: 1) continent vs continent, 2) final game winner takes all, 3) a weekend game.

Definitely an improvement this year.

So far, based on your recent record, it has to be the team that plays against Peds'  pick!

so to close this up, Germany takes the Cup to become its 4th in its lifetime . Argentina takes the second place with Netherlands being 3rd and Brazil 4th. Messi wins Golden Ball and James Rodrigues from Colombia takes the Golden Boot and top scorer in the World Cup with 6 goals

I am thrilled it didn't end in a scoreless penalty kicks. I only like penalty kicks if there is a score...

Dish Network big fail made me miss the final. So I set the DVR to autorecord all new games. This went fine until the final. For some strange reason the program guide had the game on ESPN2 as well as ABC. The DVR skipped the ABC airing and recorded from ESPN2. So when I got home and finally sat down to watch the big game (around midnight) I was treated to some random basketball game (the recorded show was labeled World Cup Final Germany - Argentina nonetheless) !!! Thank you Dish! But that time the replay had already aired and I could find no other replay on the schedule. It did graciously record the extra time on ABC, that part was labeled something like 'Final Recap'. So I missed the first 90 minutes in the end. I am still seething!
