It was a great World Cup. I watched every game from Day One.

Can’t wait for 2018!

Hear hear. Of course, no similar media hype exists for the rugby world cup.

You don’t have to wait for 2018.

2016 will see two great tournaments. The Euro and The Copa America Centenario, which will be a special tournament held in the US, featuring the US, Mexico, Costa Rica, and all the South American powers.

Okay, Lionel Messi still less than Diego Maradona, despite the enormous ill repute Maradona got later in his career.

The best news is that the architect of the current Germany program is the US coach. If there is a program to emulate, there isn’t one any better.

I must say I have given this stupid sport all the chances I can. Every time I try to watch a game it results in immediate sleep, which is something since I suffer from insomnia. I am now going to use recorded games to assist in sleeping at night.

Please 1-0 after two extra innings!!!! How exciting can that be?

Germany is hardly a 3rd world country.

I heard they blamed the Rolling Stones for losing.

Very odd.

I’ve watched my Cincinnati Reds, who have really good pitching and worse than average batting, lose a few games this year 1-0.

Germany beat someone the other day 7-1. In football that would be 49-7. A 14-7 football game wouldn’t raise eyebrows at all. You can find links to hundreds of them.

7-0 is not an unheard of football score, either. It’s not common, but fans don’t say they’re quitting football over it.

Can’t get into the women’s game. They play at about the speed and level of a good (not great) boys U17 team. Yawn.

Just in time for us to recruit all those Central American tattooed kids crossing our border.

Congratulations to Deutschland. They were the best team.
Don’t know why Messi got the Golden Ball.

Normally I watch all the games, but I had no idea what channel the games were broadcast. I found out last night that ABC would carry the game.
