The tv ratings for Sunday's final was the 3rd highest for a World Cup match in US tv history.
And finally... goodbye Brazil and now on to Russia.

(article isn't quite accurate - they're on UK time, landing was at 10:08 and they arrived at the Brandenburger Gate after 12 p.m. and there were an estimated 400,000-500,000 at the Brandenburger Gate, they're estimating something around 800,000 in total but they said they can't give any accurate estimations because of how many people were on the street cheering the bus)
And what you can't see on any of the photos, the plane had "SiegerFlieger" written on its side, it translates to "victory flyer/plane"

The overtime gave way to a rather ironic situation, while the german team was receiving the cup there were fireworks going off in France for the 14th of July... rather unfortunate but inevitable timing.
Oh...yes indeed! One hottie coach and one absolutely BEAUTIFUL flag!!!
Congrats ballettmaus! I watched the 2010 Final at a Spanish-supporting bar in NYC and the celebration afterward was fun, but it can't be anything in comparison to what you just experienced. Germany really deserved the win overall but kudos to Argentina for keeping it close with a decent number of chances.
And belated thanks to beepbeep for the volunteer work - I'm honestly bummed the WC can't be in Brazil again next time. There were real unfortunate issues with the preparation and funds spent, but it was still a fantastic event.
I'm already psyched for the club season to start!
James Rodriguez has signed with Real Madrid, $108USD soon after Toni Kroos signed with them.
Di Maria and Khedira are supposedly on the way out in order to finance Rodriguez's entry.
Real Madrid's apparent strategy is to pay loads for the latest stars--hurling off other players to finance the deals--without considering where he might fit in the lineup and what would make a well-rounded team.
Iker Casillas is apparently leaving Real Madrid, though. And he is the only player who matters...to me
