"Touch me and die, David."
British Prime Minister David Cameron (right) might not look tough, but underneath that suit he is apparently a boiling cauldron of white-hot footballing rage. After telling reporters he and the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel (left), were planning to take a break from the G20 summit in Toronto to watch England and Germany face off in the group of 16 match Sunday, he said he "... will try not to wrestle [Merkel] to the ground during penalties, but we will have to see."
On the plus side, there will be plenty of police officers in body armor throughout the city to break the European leaders apart but, judging from Merkel's steely eyes, she will be no pushover. The best odds on a Germany win as of writing are 7/4, which is about what we'd put on Merkel to rip Cameron's tie off and stuff it in his ear if he as much makes one move after the final spot-kick.
Realistically, when Lahm buries his penalty and puts England out of yet another World Cup on Sunday, Merkel will more likely have to cradle Cameron in her arms, stroke his hair, rock him back and forth, and carefully wipe away his horrible tears.
