#IBelieveThatWeWillWin has been running through my head, non-stop, since yesterday afternoon.
Maybe it was the result of the Germany-Ghana match. What a stunner, eh?
I was pulling for a big, soul crushing win for Die Mannschaft at the onset of the match. I felt it best to eliminate our pals from Ghana, to make...er...improve our hope for knockout stage glory. I've come to realize that the draw makes things even more freaking interesting for today's bout against CR7 and the Hairdos. If we can pull off the win, we'll own the top spot and qualify for the round of 16.
Two matches in, and we could be heading to the elimination round.
Lets not get in front of ourselves.
The German win was a little bittersweet in Brazil, however. With Klose's game tying goal, he tied a very personal record for Brazilians, Ronaldo's (the Brazilian one, not the haircut) record 15 World Cup goals tally. Granted, Klose is like 90 years old and has been in one more Copa do Mundo than Ronaldo. It still stings.
Well, I just learned about him yesterday, but all of the people at the place were coming to get his autograph and not mine. Therefore, he is way more famous than I am in Brazil. The nerve!
Perhaps it is just because the game is just a few hours away.
That's most certainly it. Time to gear up and lace up my red, white and blue boots.
