Some days you’re the windshield, and some days you’re the bug.

Today Brazil was the bug.

Yeah. If it were real football, it would have been 49-7.

If they want to put this debacle behind them and find out what a *real* ass-whooping’s like ... $ince we’re flying most of central America’s young people here-and-there anyway—put the dayglo boys from Brasil on a flight to Baltimore, suit them up in full pads and let’s have an exhibition game with the Ravens. Yeah baby!

Love it. At least they have attained sef-sufficiency in oil production. I guess his feckless one donating 6 billion helped.

Brazil completely collapsed in the first ten minutes. After that, its hard to believe this was the greatest football country on earth. Germany demolished them in the first 45 minutes and the second half was a victory lap for the German team.

They have better than a good chance of coming home with the coveted World Cup on Sunday.

Germany won in 1954, 1974 and 1990. If they win Sunday, it makes it their fourth World Cup title.

The only time in my life I ever expressed such emotion as I see on the faces in these pictures was when it really mattered-not some stupid piffely game.

I’ve seen, and participated in, an online forum meltdown when my college team had a poor showing in a game. I can only imagine how it reads in Portuguese.

I don’t think I could give less of a damn about soccer if I tried. So, why does this amuse me? I must be racist or something.

I kind of enjoy public grief. Especially when its over something as moronic as a children's game. Just makes me smile.

I had just heard the outcome this morning. I’m not sure if it makes me happy or sad that the Brazilians got waxed!
