It's not going to happen for Germany. Too many mistakes and Italy has earned this one.
 
2012-06-28 04:26:59 PM  
oh man! I thought offsides the first time too.
 
2012-06-28 04:27:00 PM  
WHAT ARE YOU DOING ANTONIO??!?!?!?!!? I wanted yo uin so bad and you miss that? Where was your speed?
 
2012-06-28 04:27:10 PM  
Di Natale looking like Bambi there slipping and sliding!
 
2012-06-28 04:27:24 PM  
MISS!

OFFSIDE!

With all those misses, all Germany needs is one goal to make Italy get rattled, but Germany look defeated.

/Man City/QPR finish, anyone?
 
2012-06-28 04:27:47 PM  
Stick a förk in them...
 
2012-06-28 04:28:22 PM  
Germany are doing everything they can to let Italy finish them off, Italy are doing everything they can not to finish Germany off.

Fark you de Rossi.

RepoManTSM: San Jose and Galaxy are a derby know?


I've been to multiple Dodgers/Giants games at PacBell/whatever park as a Dodgers fan, but the only time I truly felt my physical person threatened was a 1-0 Galaxy win in 2002 in San Jose. Two best teams in the league, Kevin Hartman saves a penalty, Carlos Ruiz (natch) dives and scores a penalty. Tense game, fights on the field, fights in the stands, and I'm lucky I wasn't in one of them. Add to the fact that we stole the Golden Boy, and San Jose fans really don't like Galaxy fans.

Ugh I do not want a Spain-Italy final. But Germany don't deserve to win.

/i can has epic comeback?
 
2012-06-28 04:29:48 PM  
what movement in such a tight space

Niedriger liegen die Fields of Athenry
Wo einst sahen wir die kleinen Vögel fliegen frei.
Unsere Liebe wurde auf dem Flügel hatten wir Träume und Lieder zu singen
Es ist so einsam 'round The Fields Of Athenry.

Not a chance unless Mario tweaks a speedball and wanders out straight into Schweinsteiger, thinking he's a dragon.

Some really inspirational point-blank defense by the Italians.

I was about to pose a question about how many times would Italy win if they played 10 games. I'd have originally said 2 or 3 but now that number looks more like 6 or 7.
 
2012-06-28 04:32:12 PM  
I have come to the realization I will be drunk by 3 on Sunday for my birthday so that I don't feel bad for cheering for Italy. I guess 5-7 will be sober up time before going into it again. Thankfully I took off Monday.
 
2012-06-28 04:32:23 PM  
Mario and luigi?
 
2012-06-28 04:32:26 PM  
Italy deserve to win just for the Mario and Luigi fans.

Somebody has a screen shot of the Mario Bros, right?

Yesterday it was all "Italy over Germany? that's crazy talk!".

Italy are winning it all. They won in '82 after a match fixing scandal, they won in 06 after a match fixing scandal and they'll probably win in '12 after a match fixing scandal.
 
2012-06-28 04:34:01 PM  
I regret requesting the day of the final off.

I guess I'll become a surrogate Spain supporter, only because I can't in good conscious root for the Italians.
 
2012-06-28 04:34:16 PM  
Charmed indeed. How does that not squirrel into the net?
 
2012-06-28 04:34:20 PM  
how many chance in front of goal mouth has Germany missed
 
2012-06-28 04:34:22 PM  
Argh.

Penalty! Germany have half a chance!

WOW. Just...wow.

Ok! Here we go! Manic finish time!
 
2012-06-28 04:36:23 PM  

desertgeek: Mario and luigi?


maybe they enjoy self-mocking stereotypes or are taking it back
 
2012-06-28 04:36:31 PM  
PK in stoppage time? REALLY!
 
2012-06-28 04:36:33 PM  

desertgeek: Penalty!


Correction: weak penalty
 
2012-06-28 04:36:34 PM  
ITA 2-1 GER, 2 minutes and change to go
 
2012-06-28 04:36:58 PM  
Now is when you say "maybe we should have let Mario scored those two sitters that we screwed up in the second half."
 
2012-06-28 04:37:14 PM  
I want to find the person that made the Seven Nation Army electronica remix, and stab them in the eyes.
 
2012-06-28 04:37:57 PM  
Hummels deserves a yellow just for looking like Ziggy Sobotka.

Viva Italia: PK in stoppage time? REALLY!


Well if Italians would stop cheating there would be no need for the official to call the obvious penalty.
 
2012-06-28 04:38:09 PM  
Italian flop
 
2012-06-28 04:38:29 PM  
What a bad call.

Oh well, it was fun almost being a wizard.
 
2012-06-28 04:39:07 PM  
Too little too late. Italy v Spain for the trophy.
 
2012-06-28 04:39:19 PM  

swahnhennessy: What a bad call.


Where?
 
2012-06-28 04:39:26 PM  
Surely that penalty was worth more than 20 seconds added on to the extra time...
