World Cup Final in Civic Center



A huge crowd showed up for the Sunday noontime live broadcast in San Francisco's Civic Center of the World Cup Final from Brazil.



There were a pair of screens set up at the corner of McAllister and Polk where the Argentine fans congregated...



...while another pair of screens were set up in front of the hard-packed dirt in the center of the plaza...



...which is where the Deutschland fans had set up camp.



The Argentine crowd was enthusiastic and enormous fun to watch, and their team performed valiantly...



...but the heavily favored Germany triumphed in extra time for a thrilling finish.

We caught the extra time from the Lincoln Park bar. Goetze's goal for the Germans was spectacular, but I don't feel like I missed anything by not watching the first 90 minutes.

Dear Mike: Don't tell anybody, but I missed half of the first 90 minutes too.
