Hopefully Ronaldo takes too long with his makeup. Go go USA!

I've always thought that Mads Mikkelsen looked like Putin. Give him a receding hairline and I would hire Mikkelsen to play Putin in a movie:

Putin's Twin?

I'd point out that you wrote Agleria instead of Algeria in the opening paragraph, but f*** it, it's Algeria.

I've been to Portugal. Lovely country, beautiful land, seemingly entirely populated by people that deserve the poop sandwich I sincerely hope we feed them today.

I hope we approach this game the same way Germany did against Ronaldo. Put someone on him one on one the whole time. Clog the middle. I believe we can win this!

Go Bucks!

Looks like SB Nation stole that pic from your twitter account. Seems like a couple of websites has been tweet stealing from @11w lately.

Putin is probably automatic for a few people in that situation, so I'm sure @SBNation had that queued up and ready to go.

Making it look easy.

A little too easy with the way Korea has allowed them three goals in the first half.

This is the highest scoring World Cup I can remember. Along with improbable performances by lower level teams and come backs (like maybe this one), it's been great fun.

Agreed and we are not even in the round of 16 yet.

So many great teams are planning their vacations already
