Default Germany or Argentina?

Since Americans have a lot in common with Germans I wonder who would get more support from the few Americans that will watch the final.

Deutschland naturlich!

Many reasons for me personally:

Some German heritage
Took German in high school/college (still know a decent amount)
Miroslav Klose is my all-time favorite player ever since I first saw him in the 2002 World Cup
Overall have long considered Germany my favorite team after the USA

Jawohl! Gehen wir Deutschland!

I've identified with Germany when it comes to international events not involving the US. I have a good bit of German ancestry and just completed my basic proficiency exam last semester. It's funny because in class we talked with my professor about his opinion on if Germany would do well and he thought they might but said it had been a long time since a European team had won in South America. Also, how could you not like the jerseys?

That would be a first, if tens of millions Americans watched. Seeing as the couldn't get tens of millions to watch the USA games.

I really don't care about soccer and I have seen one match in my entire life (went to a San Jose Earthquake match) up until this WC. I have watched almost every match and will be watching the 3rd place match and final.

I like Germany. They seem to rely on more of their players where Argentina relies heavily on Messi. Shut down Messi and you cripple their team.

Oh look, now we have a thread in the Water Cooler about this. And even non soccer fans can even see what Kaka can't.
