Can a Human Being Pull for Germany in the World Cup? Sure.

When I asked a friend who lives in the Netherlands who he’s for, he emailed me to say Brazil, then said a few words about Germany:

Germany—who’s for Germany outside of Germany? Although I must admit that the social attitudes in Europe towards that country are changing, slowly. One of the reasons is this World Cup that they’ve organized; it’s totally free of hooliganism and different nationalities are sitting with each other digging on the sport.

Cool.
