The USA and Germany are just a few hours away from kicking off their final group-stage game in Recife, Brazil, and people are having one hell of a time trying to get to the stadium. That's because a torrential rainstorm has flooded portions of the city.
This does not look like fun:

Luckily, things seem to be a bit more manageable at the stadium:
Pulling up to stadium, which looks like it's gonna be fine. Really doubt that this will be postponed. Traffic outside metro area manageable— Pablo S. Torre (@PabloTorre) June 26, 2014
It doesn't look like there's any reason to believe that the game will be postponed, the question will be whether anyone can actually make it to the stadium on time.
We've gone about five miles in an hour. Google Maps says we're only 39 minutes away! We're not. Google Maps is drunk.

We suggest that all U.S. supporters find Teddy Goalsevelt. He will lead the way to glory:
