Updated: Die Mannschaft Prevail (With Bonus Schweinski)!

13 Jul

BsdOq3PIYAEh_FnI could not be more delighted with Germany’s win and that there was a whole lot of celebratory Schweinski made it that much better.


Ah, they should have just gone for it! They probably wanted to, but just not in front of Angela Merkel. We all know how she loves her Basti! I was joking on Twitter that I thought she’d try to slip him the tongue. She restrained herself though. Bless.

And poor Basti! He was the Timex of the match – he took a lickin’ (more than once, JFC!) and kept on tickin. Good for them. What an end to a fascinating and at times, infuriating World Cup.

Updated: Sami posted a selfie with Angela and the boys. Fabulous!

    Congrats Germany! This was a well deserved win. And I’m SO happy for Sami. Just a few months ago people thought he’d be out for the World Cup, and now he’s played a role in winning the Champions League AND the World Cup!

      And he’s only the 10th player ever to win a World Cup and a Champions League in the same year!

      (I’m very sad for Di Maria and Pipita though, but someone had to win.)

        Impressive stuff from our boy. And he’s the only one who’s hair is still long enough to need headbands. Coincidence? I don’t think so 🙂

        I felt especially bad for Di Maria. He played so well this tournament and it was terrible he had to miss the final. But with Messi and Kun on the same team, well… much as I want all the Madrid boys to be happy, I don’t feel AS bad as I would otherwise.

          I thought Di Maria deserved the Golden Ball, not Messi.

          • CinematiqueChic July 18, 2014 at 2:34 pm #

            A lot of players deserved it more than Messi, and Di would have been a great choice.

    My coach is too German to function right now. I was supporting them for his sake, so I’m so happy they pulled it off. Loving the photos with this post!

    I’m happy for sami and ozil and the fact that Argentina didn’t win on brasilian soil but it also broke my heart to see pipa’s sad face.

    Schweinski are just total goofballs. U just goyta love them.

    Still barely tolerating Angela Merkel that close to my boyfriend right now… *sigh*

    So happy for Sami. He had a stellar tournament, I think.
    Sad for Di Maria. He played exceptionally well this tournament and I think the game could have been different if he’d been able to play. As I was going through photos for the match post (it’s coming soon!) I found one of him crying and I wanted to die 😦

      Oh, then you shouldn’t see their party pics with Rihanna.

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 14, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

        She’s going to have to later. I’ve got a post coming up after I get finished with work today. 😉

        • drea July 14, 2014 at 4:13 pm #

          Haha, ok. Maybe just not in conjunction with the pic of Riri in the stadium flashing the team, or the crowd, or someone (I’m not sure really who). 😉

      • mygypsyspirit July 14, 2014 at 5:40 pm #

        Oh, I’ve seen them…

    I’m so very happy Germany won. I’ve been told that a big reason for that is my inherent Barca bias against Messi, but I honestly wanted to see Germany’s incredible teamwork rewarded. (Also, I have a bit of a thing for Hummels. :-D). Congratulations, Germany!

  6. Barbarossa July 14, 2014 at 5:48 pm #

    I know that Germany, not just the players and coach, but also the whole football industry of the nation worked hard for this and deserve this. However, today I read Mats Hummels’ claim that they decided not to humiliate Brazil in the second half of the semi-final and it made me feel very uncomfortable.

    It was entirely Brazil’s fault that they lost in such a humiliating way, but saying that you went easy on Brazil after the match was not necessary. That’s exactly humiliating the opponent.

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 14, 2014 at 5:52 pm #

      I gotta agree with that. I mean, he didn’t need to say anything. That would have been more gracious. I mean, they scored 2 goals on ’em in the second half. Is he implying that they would have gotten more? Not really classy at all.

      • Barbarossa July 14, 2014 at 6:14 pm #

        It’s sad a player would say this while Loew’s comments on the match were calm and not arrogant at all.

        Meanwhile, I, being a novice, still feel die Mannschaft sounds a bit porny. Like man and. . .

    • drea July 14, 2014 at 10:24 pm #

      I understood what he said as that they would not humiliate Brazil with big demonstrative celebrations if they scored more. And from what I saw, they didn’t. They were relatively reserved. I don’t think he meant let’s not score more on them because that’s their job and I think we all saw that they didn’t stop trying.
