I've been just crazy busy for this one-man blog between work and the considerable complexity of getting a kid prepped for college in a month. So here's a funny story I heard on NPR today: the people of Brazil have an unthinkable choice. Who do they root for in the World Cup final?
On the one hand is Argentina, Brazil's bitter rival in futbol but also its South American neighbor.
On the other hand is Germany, who delivered one of the most humiliating World Cup smackdowns to Brazil in the semi-finals.
It wasn't even close in an informal poll of Brazilians: a win for Argentina would be intolerable.
