But first, let's start with some biting commentary.
Little Luis Suarez had a mouthful, and it choked up on him. After biting an Italian opponent in the shoulder during the most recent game, (this is the third time) Uruguay's most talented striker is banned for four months and at least nine games. This means both his country's team and Liverpool will be more toothless in the near future.
Colombia is flashing a toothy grin - Uruguay's next opponent.
NOW, ON TO THE US vs. Deutsche game!
The weather outside is frightful
A first goal would be delightful,
And since we must win or tie,
Be onside, be onside be onside.
The rain shows no signs of stopping,
So I've bought some corn for popping,
The field lights are turned way high,
Be onside, be onside, be onside.

One yellow on Germany. Good call.
