Bah! It was a fluke. Obviously!

Goals at 119 and 121. That's crazy!

If Italy didn't score at the end like that, I gave Germany the advantage during penalty kicks. Great game!

No German pubs, either? It might be fun to find a German beer hall for that game.

True. German pubs are much harder to find. there seems to be an Irish pub on every (other) street corner, though!

I just thought it was interesting that they actually play for 3rd....you don't see that in American Football, or baseball or basketball. I kind of like that idea.

They do it in the rugby WC as well. I imagine it's pretty hard for the players to get motivated though.

Yea, JM, I think it would be hard to play with much heart for 3rd place.
