Yesterday, the World Cup came to a close. Germany beat out Argentina in extra time 1-0 and Americans everywhere were like, YES, finally, NO MORE EXTRA TIME, no more tied games, no more fake injuries, no more...biting. Not to mention, we're pretty sure there was a collective sigh heard round the world...by bosses who were thrilled that their employees would finally get some work done.
Apparently this World Cup broke all social media records. 88 million people had more than 280 million interactions on Facebook alone during the final yesterday. That's 40 million more than Beyonce got at the Superbowl in 2013. On twitter, over 600,000 tweets were sent every minute. We searched through your tweets and found the ones that best captured the end of what some are saying was the best World Cup ever. (Did you just roll your eyes?)
Now that the World Cup is over it's time that we bring attention back to the event that truly unites the world, Teen Mom.

The World Cup is over. (In other words, 90% of our timelines resume forgetting that soccer/fútbol even exists.)

Now that the World Cup is over I guess all these players will have to go back to their jobs as models.
