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'm a soccer fan not a soccer nut, I know most Americans don't care about soccet and wont watch the final and thats perfectly fine with me.

I know there is a lot of Italian-americans in states such as new york, makes me wonder of they will have more simpathy for Argentina since most Argies are mixed with Italians.

I was happy to see Spain winning the past few years since I know my greatgrandpa came from Spain even though I have never been to Europe.

Bunch of Jewish-Germans went to Argentina in the 1930s before the Nazis expanded, and then a bunch of German Nazis went to Argentina in the mid-1940s when they lost the war.

I would say that, as of recently, Argentina has more in common with Germany than the U.S. does.

I can't tell if you're just throwing random shit at the wall so that something will eventually end up being historically accurate. The Portuguese and Spanish fought over Argentina.

Then again, maybe I missed the class on The Great Argentinian and Italian Mixup.

I could be wrong but Italians massivaly migrated Argentina. Messi, Maradona, Viglia, DiMaria, Lavezzi, Mascherano, DeMichelis... all Italian names.

In Latin America, Argentina is seen as an Spanish-Italian country with a few German Jewish and eastern european immigrants as far as ancestries.

No, Argentina was founded by a peace-loving race of Polynesians named the Ar-gu-na-wackas in 1912. They lived in harmony with mother nature until the Romanians colonized it in 1973 looking for silver and track pants- the ones with the stripes down the sides.

This led to the Prussian-Anglo alliance with Chile, and the dumping of smallpox-laden tupperware in the 1980's. This, sadly, killed off most of the remaining Ar-gu-na-wackas. The resulting influx of old Nazi's and Armenian women named "Tina" merged with the remaining population creating hybrid brown/yellow skinned people nicknamed 'Ar-gu-Tinas.'

Madonna was elected president in 1992.



I'm cheering for Germany.

He is correct. Brazil is heavily German descent and Argentina is heavily Italian descent. This century 1/2 the Argentine population has been identified as Italian descent. Italians were the predominant immigrants from 1850-1950 and 1980-2000. Messi, manu ginobli, gabriella sabatini, and the Pope are all Italian Argentine as well. From wiki so you know it's true
Quote:
An*Italian Argentine*(Spanish*and*Italian:*italo-argentino) is a person born inArgentina*of*Italian*descent or an*Italy-born person who resides in Argentina. It is estimated up to 24 million Argentines have some degree of Italian descent (up to 60% of the total population), making it the largest ethnic group in the country.[unreliable source?][1]*Italians began arriving in Argentina in great numbers from 1857 to 1940, totaling 44.9% of the entire immigrant population; more than from any other country (including Spain at 31.5%), and this migratory flow continued to the early 1950s, with Italy also having the most emigrants to Argentina for the decades 1980–2000. Because of this, Italian descent is at least 60% of the population, almost 25 million.[unreliable source?][1]

In 1996, the Italian Argentines were 15.88 million[2]*when Argentina’s population was about 34.5 million, meaning that they were 46% of the Argentine population.

Italian settlement in Argentina, along with*Spanish*settlement, formed the backbone of today's*Argentine*society. Argentine culture has significant connections to Italian culture in terms of language, customs and traditions.[3]

Default Re: Germany or Argentina?

An interesting fact is that Spains first defeat in the Colonies came under San Martin, an Argentine. Spaniards came to Argentina to settle, not to conquer, once they saw the Spanish army destroying everything in South America, San Martin decided to get an army going, he went to the Andes of Peru and beat the Spaniards, after that, Central Americans and Mexicans did the same thing too.

Argies are "proud" to be Europeans but they always "love" beating Spain and specially England because of the war they had over the Malvinas.

Argentina is the whitest and most homogenous country in South America. Perfect place for deposed German Nazis to have escaped to.
