AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YOU GUYS DO YOU KNOW WHAT TOMORROW IS. IT IS THE DAY THAT MY LIFE IS COMPLETE AGAIN. (It's the World Cup in case you didn't get that.)

I'm so excited and flipping my shit and terrified. I'm not TOO worried about Germany at this point. They are Germany, and Germany do well in international tournaments. It's just a fact of life. Germans perform well under pressure no matter how weak their squad is. I'm pretty certain that they will, at the very least, make it out of group stages. The great thing about this squad is that even if they don't go too far this year? They are going to be unstoppable in 2014 (and they should even be pretty brilliant at the 2012 Euros). Those German bbs are incredibly promising, and if they can't do it now, it's only because they need time.

As for the US, I am actually pretty hopeful. I think they can beat England. England are so freaking cocky and overconfident about this game, and NO ONE expects the US to put up much of a showing. That attitude served us pretty well in the Confed Cup. And I actually agree with ESPN for once and Alexi Lalas's words of wisdom: England aren't as good as they think they are and the US are better than people say they are. When people bring up England's qualifying campaign as evidence of how good they are, I just laugh and laugh and laugh. Yes, when your biggest competition is Ukraine, you've really overcome the odds. Augh, this game is going to kill me. I wish I hadn't started to care so much about the USMNT during this past year. It was so much easier when I only cared about the women's NT. They win everything!

My predictions for who will win it all, just to have it written down somewhere: I am going with the Netherlands. Because I refuse to say Spain or Brazil. Even if this makes me a bad Germany fan.

Also, ESPN2 is covering the World Cup today until 5. GET IN THE MOOD.
