Germany Wins World Cup 2014



Glückwünsche Germany!

Germany has just won the World Cup 2014 in Brazil!  They have worked hard for it and have earned it.  After all the match-ups, it was Argentina and Germany who were left to battle it out for the cup.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel was even present for the final game.  Argentina could not score despite doing so well in previous games.  Their star, Lionel Messi was not too happy with the outcome.  Despite receiving an award himself, he made no attempt to mask his disappointment by demonstrating for all a serious gloomy face.

This is unfortunately indeed.  It is only a game Messi, cheer up!  There is nothing worse in sports than a sore loser who cannot summon up integrity and enjoy the moment even if the victory was not on his/her side.  What surprised me most was the crying.  There was so much crying everywhere it seemed as if it were a funeral instead of a sporting event!  Again, it is only a game! 

Anyhow, congratulations to Germany.  I am sure Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is smiling in the Vatican now. I hope Pope Francis did not make any wagers. :-)
