Let's do this.

Hopefully the USMNT will have better results than against Portugal and I won't throw up.  Again, if you need any preview, SB Nation has you covered for the World Cup as well as a preview for this game:

The United States were left devastated by a last-gasp equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Portugal last time out, as the result ensuring they head into a tough final group game with their spot in the last 16 of the World Cup still to be confirmed. However, given the USMNT only need to draw with Germany to make it into the knockout stages, their position is still pretty healthy.

In a very happy coincidence, Germany would be rather happy with a draw too, as that would guarantee they advance as group winners. But USMNT boss Jurgen Klinsmann has rejected the notion both sides will ease off and play for the draw, as his team is "not made for ties." But one imagines if a draw conveniently comes along, Klinsmann wouldn't be too upset.

And if you need a permission slip to send to your boss so you can go watch the game, Jurgen Klinsmann has you covered.  If you are concerned about what would happen if the USA does __________ and  __________ does __________, the we've got that too.

Last but not least, it's pretty cool that someone else finally got on the "Let's do this." train.
