  1. Some things I just learned…

    1.) Germany has 4 World Cup wins, second only to Brazil with 5. However, Germany has been in the most World Cup final games.
    2.) Germany has the all-time leading goal scorer in World Cup history – Miroslav Klose. Not Pele or Ronaldo…a German holds that record.
    3.) It was a German that scored the most goals ever in a World Cup finals – Gerd Mueller with 10. Again, not Pele or even Maradona. Another German holds that record.
    4.) And Thomas Mueller this year could surpass the previous records. He already has 10 in 2 World Cup finals. Again, another German.

    Yet we never hear a peep about Germany’s dominance on the pitch. Could the Western media (i.e. Jewish dominated) have a bias against Germany? If not, what explains the overwhelming silence in this regard?
