A match between two countries with female heads of state, or heads of gov't, wutevah.

Merkel takes the early lead.

Romero is a terrible goalkeeper!

I love it when Martin Tyler says things he says in the video game.

So basically, if you're a German player named Muller, you're going to score a bucketful of goals in the World Cup. Why don't they start an All Muller team?

Klose could not (ahem) close the deal on that one.

Not Klose enough?

I'm thinking that the media Argy-Bargy between the two countries is part of the German's plan to get under Argentina's skin and provoke them into getting stupid cards. The Vulcans won't have trouble controlling their emotions.

delantero, I'm in. I think the first 4 days don't count, if it is like last year.

Germany deserves to win tonight, with the way they play Argentina should think twice before underestimating them. Catch the highlights on http://informationcrossroads.blogspot.com/2010/05/2010-fifa-world-cup-south-africa-live.html

It is just like last year RK. Personally I have paid ZERO attention to any cycling news this year because of the World Cup.
Who's hot?
Who's not?
Who do you guys think are favorites?
Basso?

DR, if you don't know, we don't know. I guessed well last year and got some mountain points from some scrub -- those guys you can't figure out in the first few days because the stages are flat.

I just know that it is Armstrong v Contador.

No Levi for me this year, but I'm always a sucker for South Carolinian Hincapie.

Posted by: Reignking | July 3, 2010 11:11 AM | Report abuse

Wow, Team Saxobank is loaded -- two Schlecks and a Cancellara.

Contador's team is kinda weak.

Wonderful teamwork by the Germans.

Is Messi playing?

Posted by: Reignking | July 3, 2010 11:25 AM | Report abuse

He was so Klose Chad Barrett would have finished that.

Germany is looking like they will be in the final. They are a great passing team with good composure & deadly finishing. Will be hard to beat.

Posted by: tfshea | July 3, 2010 11:36 AM | Report abuse

Admirable soccer indeed. No diving, no whining, no appealing for cards. Just a passionate but dispassionately administered total and complete beat down.

Telling moment: Shortly after first goal, a brutal foul right outside the box in prime territory for Podolski to set up his laser shot. Instead of writhing around, Germany gets up, plays on, ref calls advantage, and Germany ends up dispossessed.

This is a fun team to watch.

Can Muller appeal that suspension? That's a BS call.

No referee decision can be appealed, repealed, or banana peeled.
