And, just for kicks, I'm going to predict Germany up 2-1, with Germany going up early, Uruguay equalizing, and the last goal being scored in the 73rd minute on the counterattack by Germany with Schweinsteiger striking from distance, the goalie just getting a hand to it, and Klose being in the right place to slide it in. And if that happens:
a) I'll be scared of myself
b) I'm pro.
:(
:cry:

I had hoped Klose's back would be find. I got the first 2 goals right, missed the next 2.

Although Schweinsteiger did strike from distance, the goalie did deflect it, and somebody (Mueller) put it in :lol:

Wow, definitely the most entertaining match I've seen so far. (And Paul the Octopus is 7 for 7 now.)

One match to go, and then we must wait another four years.

I'm glad Germany won. I won't rant again about Suarez but I'll say something else. I think that Forlan needs to not make so many angry faces. It's kinda scary, but not really. Just annoying.

YAY! Today is the Final! The World Cup is over! Now this thread can be locked by midnight!
Sorry, but I hate sports in general (except Ultimate) so I get excited every time a big event ends so we can stop worrying about it.

Same here :D And personally, I just like Spain a lot more than the Netherlands, for no particular reason

That final was the best football game I've ever seen. Out of three, but still.

And Spain wins!!! :D :D :D
