World Cup: Germany triumphs over Argentina, 1-0... (yawn)

Germany's Mario Goetze scores the games only goal as Germany defeats Argentina in the World Cup finalAnd so the German machine ground out a 1-0 victory in the World Cup final, depriving Argentina (and Lionel Messi) of glory, and depriving us viewers of any interest.  (yawn)  I must tell you a game in which the score is 0-0 after two hours cannot be considered all that interesting, and especially this one.  The final goal by Mario Goetze was artistic, but the rest of the game was not, especially.

And so the World Cup 2014 ends.  Most soccer experts will tell you it was a great world cup, with more goals and more action than previous years; for me, it was fun watching a sport I don't follow, and rooting for the Netherlands (go Oranje!), but the experience has not transformed me into a soccer fan.  I doubt many others were converted either.  Back to the Tour!  Then Baseball.  And then ... Football :)
