Tuesday’s Brazil-Germany World Cup semifinal, which the Germans stunningly won 7-1, proved to be the most tweeted about sporting event in the history of Twitter, with the game netting 35.6 million tweets.
Many from Big 12 country pulled no punches on the Brazilian debacle:
Brazil spent 14 billion in public funds to host the World Cup. They're down 5-0 at half. Something is getting set on fire in Rio tonight.

I feel for that Brazilian SID. Game notes are going to be tough to write for Saturday. Time to break out the academic accomplishments.

5-0 in 30 minutes though? Let Brazil have Tim Howard in the second half to give them a little hope
