Argentina will meet Germany for World Cup Final
That's right. Argentina and the Netherlands fought to a 0-0 final, but Argentina won the match 4-2 on penalties.
I have to be honest. Although I absolutely love Argentinian wine, I was cheering for the Netherlands, mostly due to a friend I met here on the Q. KissChris is still a member of the Q, and drops in from time to time, mostly to share a thought or two on his team, and to show us a new picture or two.
I haven't really watched much of the World Cup, as I'm not much of a soccer fan, even though I played in high school. However, in honor of Chris, I cheer for the Netherlands.
Now I'll have to cheer for them to get the bronze, to beat Brazil for third. If they play the way they did today, I think they have an excellent chance to do that.
Meanwhile, Argentina will fight Germany for the rights to brag. It all comes down to this. South America will be in a frenzy, cheering for the "home team". Or maybe not. After all, the match will take place in Brazil, who fully expected to be in that final. Now, it is their rivals vying for the win. What will Brazilians do? Will they cheer for the South American team, or for the European team?
Meanwhile, the Europeans will be cheering on Germany. Or will they? After all, Lionel Messi is reportedly the greatest player in the world, and he is a fan favorite. Will the European fans cheer for the Argentinian team? Will they cheer for Messi?
And the rest of the world? Who will the Canadians cheer for? The Americans? The British?
One might have to tune into twitter to see who the favorite will be.
The game gets underway at 3pm ET on Sunday, from Rio de janeiro. I might just have to change the channel at the golf course.
