World Cup QUARTERFINAL: France vs. Germany

Have we recovered from the  USA#1's valiant loss to the Belgians? I'm not sure I have, but math marches on.

Luckily, we jump into the quarter finals with a fun looking match-up! The heat map looks kind of ridiculous:

There's lots of dark blue in the higher funner scores. Look like there's a good chance of 2-1, 3-1, 3-2, even 4-1!! I hope it's a prediction that comes to fruition, these knockout games so far where there's no scoring until extra time have been a snooze fest.

On one hand, the French have never beaten the Germans at anything. On the other hand the French have CHEEEEEEEEEEESE.
