Then came in the World Cup nerds.
Interesting factoid: Brazil has not allowed 5 goals in an ENTIRE World Cup since 1998. They just gave up 5 in one half. #BRAvsGER— T.J. Holmes (@tjholmes) July 8, 2014
And then the jokesters arrived... which was pretty much the best part of the game.
Tears of laughter or sadness ensured, depending who you were rooting for.
If you love Leo and were rooting for Brazil, this was especially sad.
There were Harry Potter jokes.
