An odds-on favorite getting utterly, surprising blown out on the world's greatest stage?
A fanbase that was... hungry... for a championship?
History has a way of repeating itself.
Too subtle? Let me spell it out for you.
The Germany Brazil game was like this years supper bowl with Germany being the Seahawks and Brazil being the broncos— Alex Barz (@badnewsbarz28) July 9, 2014
Thank you Alex.
Yes, the word "Broncos" was trending on Twitter Tuesday night because one football team beat up on another, and everyone on Twitter is hilarious.
Brazil went full broncos. You never go full broncos— Nate Tennyson (@TeamNateDomnate) July 9, 2014
I think Brazil now understands how the Broncos feel.— Keith (@SiriusKeith) July 9, 2014
she said "brazil became the denver broncos today" damn lmaoo that's cold— Reggie Fowlkes (@BrothaRegg) July 9, 2014
Well, that was close. Germany almost scored as many goals as the Broncos scored points in the Super Bowl.— FOX Sports NFL (@NFLonFOX) July 8, 2014
Okay, I laughed at that last one.
All this being said, "Broncos" may have had some Twitter help thanks to Barack Obama's visit to Denver Tuesday.

This is our medicine, Broncos fans. We've been taking it, and taking it, and taking it. Most of us over the age of 25 have taken it before.
Self-deprecating humor can be cathartic, Broncos fans. Your best Broncos jokes in the comments.
