Soooo... Germany.  Yeah.  Bloody hell.  That 7-1 victory over Brazil was one of the most surreal games I've ever watched, in any sport.  To see Germany do what they did to Brazil, given the stakes, given the location, the given the opponent... absolutely mind-boggling.

I'm going to go out on a limb that today's match won't see EIGHT FREAKING GOALS, but... who the hell knows, right?  Maybe Messi and Robben are just gonna say "fuck it" and each score hat tricks before Sergio Aguero scores the game-winning goal in the 115th minute?  It could happen.  I'm prepared for anything right now.

TODAY'S GAME:

Argentina v. The Netherlands (3 PM CT, ESPN and WatchESPN)

The usual rules apply.
