Let's hear your Final Four, your title match, and your winners. I'll start:
Semis: USA vs. Brazil; Argentina vs. Portugal. I'm sticking to my early triumphalism about both American progress and Spanish struggles. But Brazil will spank us in the semi.
Final: Brazil 2, Argentina 1. The South American championship we're all waiting for. As much as I'd love to see Diego's WC-winning leap of joy, Brazil was the best team coming in, and will be the best team going out. And they'll win as hosts in 2014, too.
