The 2014 FIFA World Cup turned 3 weeks old, and while no one was bit this week, I feel like I’ve been chewed up and spat out by each and every one of my favorite teams.
Here’s a recap of my un-favorite things this week:
The red, white and blue lost to Belgium 1-2, mainly because we only had one person on our team, which happened to be Secretary of Defense, Tim Howard.
Sadly, El Tri also lost 1-2 to the Netherlands. It was a long shot. I mean, they were playing against a team that is arguably the undeclared World Cup champion, as well as paid-off referees and a racist Dutch airline.
After 120 minutes of play that rendered Brazil and Chile tied at 1-1, a series of cruel and agonizing penalty kicks gave the win to the host country, and ripped La Roja‘s position as “Most Unlikely to Succeed,” (a position now solely held by Costa Rica).
And, as if it wasn’t enough to crush one Cinderella story, Brazil bitch-slapped Snow White in a resounding defeat of Colombia, 1-2. Sadly, Los Cafeteros are never going to dance again…at least not in this World Cup.
