PHOTOS: We Root For The Dutch Now

If you're looking to pick a favorite World Cup team, carefully considering all the pertinent factors (underdog status, quirk, national bias, best hair), then please consult Spencer Hall's World Cup likability index immediately. He's got you covered.

If, on the other hand, you want something more self-explanatory... Look no further:


If you've yet to pick a favorite team, the Netherlands should probably be the choice. They've never won a World Cup, their jerseys are fantastic, and... Just look at those fans. More photos after the jump.

You really can't overstate the greatness of that Dutch orange:


And let's not forget the Dutch ladies...


And finally, I think this is like the Netherlands' version of Uncle Sam. Complete with Dumb and Dumber tuxedo and mock-military hat. So, like Uncle Sam on Ketamine.


Seriously. How could you possibly root against these people? If you ask me, over the next few weeks, we should all come together and root for the Dutch to... PAINT THE WORLD ORANJE.

Watch the video. It will make your Monday happier.
