I don’t know enough about soccer to explain just how Brazil collapsed so completely in their semifinal with Germany today, but as a San Francisco Giants fan, I can empathize.
OK, for Brazilians, this is a thousand times worse I’m sure.
Germany is ahead 5-0 at halftime, and on ESPN they’re already talking about resting some players in the final 5 minutes for the final. We’re watching history.
Brazil is burning to the ground right now, and we’re not talking about protest riots. Nothing captures the anguish going on in the World Cup host country than the GIFs below.
RT @Yahoo_Graham: PA told German fans to stay in their seats so they could be escorted out.
