In just 25 small minutes, we’re going to hit the local pub and root for Germany. With England out and the USA a fading memory, I need a new team to get behind. I have chosen Germany.
Why have I decided to root for Germany? Sure, they have no Crouch but that’s OK. There can only be one Crouch. I always root for the underdog. Plus, they haven’t won in a while. I can’t root for Portugal because they fall down way too much and, quite honestly, it’s so annoying to see them do that all the time. (Bunch of wimps.) I can’t root for Italy because there seems to be a lot of scandal around them as of late. (Although, admitedly, those details are still a bit foggy for me and I know little about what I’m saying.) And, I know it’s not a very good reason (at least it’s not about the color of their uniforms!) but I have decided not to root for France because of that one fella from the Red Bulls who lied to his team declaring he had to go back home suddenly because of “family issues” when in all actuality he left to see the World Cup. (Loser. I hope he’s kicked off the team for that.)
All that said, GO GERMANY!
