The World Cup has a third place game?


I debated leaving just that as the entire blog.  I love how they make the "play-off for third place" text tiny and impossible to read.  As if some Brazilians might actually forget the mauling they suffered at the hands of Germany, and tune in to the game today thinking they can still win the Cup.

I honestly didn't even realize this was a thing until I saw it on a TV schedule yesterday.  Somehow I must have missed the Patriots vs. 49ers NFL third-place game last January?  I wonder what the ratings were for that one?

It's not the Olympics.  There's no bronze medal.  Do these two teams even care about this game at all?  Are we sure the Netherlands will actually show up?  I guess most of the Brazilian guys will since they live there, but half of them are probably going to be be drunk or hungover.  I'd say 50/50 the Dutch have already flown back to Europe.
