    How appropriate that schadenfreude is a German word.

    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!

    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!

    :hurah: :rolling:

    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
