The soccer players are not the only top athletes in Brazil right now. Former UK forward and current Toronto Raptor Patrick Patterson has been enjoying the sun and soccer since the beginning of the World Cup. While he is filled with patriotism and rooting for the USA, Patterson said on Twitter he has Germany winning it all with Argentina as a back-up pick.
But Patterson is not the only star athlete in Brazil. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck, is apparently a huge futbol fan even though he grew up in Texas, the heart of American football. According to a fan in Brazil who snapped a photo with Luck on the way to Recife for the USA-Germany match, the Colts QB is a huge fan of Clint Dempsey (also a Texas-native). Luck played a little beach soccer during his trip and even brought Stanford teammate and current Steelers lineman David DeCastro along to Brazil as well.
