OT - World Cup Final -- who you rooting for?

So, been busy with work and haven't been able to keep up with the threads on the WC in the last two rounds. 

Just curious to see where the rooting interests are on MGoBoard for the Final?  Personally, I used to love the Dutch and started this tournament rooting for them.  However, the more games that I get to see with them, the more they seem like punks.  The Spanish on the other hand play a beautiful game that is joyous to watch even when low scoring.  So I'm going with Spain.

Just curious to see other people's impressions of the Dutch and of the game at hand.

USMNT has by far the easiest path to the semi-finals

Ghana, then the winner of South Korea/Uruguay

 

Compare that to:

England (Germany, Argentina), and vice versa with Germany

Argentina (Mexico, Germany/England), and vice versa with Mexico

Groups E-H have the top five teams in the world, according to FIFA.

 

I'm not saying they will actually make the last four, but the path could not have worked out more favorably.
