Penalty Kicks Suck

Germany beat Argentina this morning in the quarter finals of the World Cup on penalty kicks. After playing a full 90 minutes and an additional 30 minutes of overtime the match came down to 5 penalty kicks for each team. The problem is that penalty Kicks involve too much luck to decide important games and goal keepers admit to routinely guessing which way they jump. I don't really know of a better to end a deadlocked match but it definitely sucks to see the best team in the tournament go out on penalty kicks. Hopefully the Italy vs. Ukraine match will be decided in normal course of play.
