Normally, it’s hard to watch a massacre. But for World Cup soccer fans, watching Germany beat the dead horse that was the Brazilian national team on Tuesday afternoon was an exercise in morbid curiosity. They can’t score again, right? There’s no way…oh, the humanity! Stop, stop, it’s already dead!

It’s fitting that one of the the most shocking soccer matches in recent history now has another distinction – the most talked-about match in the history of Twitter.

Yeah, you’re reading that correctly. Germany’s abuse of Brazil isn’t just the most-discussed soccer match of all time, but it’s the most-discussed single sports game in history.

    This world cup is lousy because of the various upset involves but what make it worst is that videos of played matches are not even available for viewing pleasure. That’s the reason why my interest in Soccer has diminished over the years to the point of “what’s the big deal?” or “huh, world cup again?”. Life goes on! Next!
