I thoroughly enjoyed watching Uruguay play Germany for 3rd place. It was high scoring and entertaining soccer filled with creativity and pretty solid officiating/non-dirty play. In contrast, I hated watching the million (14?) yellow cards handed out in the finals match. The most influential person on the field was clearly the official. The one time a player actually gets fouled on a breakaway but doesn't throw himself to the ground and flop around like a fish the ref ignores it. The only red card went to the victim of a hardcore flop. Then, the person who flops is the one to score the winning goal! Did anyone else think the final game was that ridiculous while loving the 3rd place match?
