How Germany’s Amazing Win Compares to Other Sports

There is a graphic going around Wednesday morning showing just how amazing Germany’s 7-1 win against Brazil was. It’s pretty shocking, making the average sports fan’s jaw hit the floor. The math behind the graphic isn’t solid as there are many factors left out. Nevertheless….wow.

SB Nation has some extra statistics going along with the same format as the graph: taking an instance and comparing it to the Brazil game in terms of performance.

Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against the Knicks in 1962. The would have been 1.6 German goals vs. Brazil.

Morten Andersen scored 2,544 career points, or 75.48 German goals vs. Brazil.

Justin Morneau hit 35 home runs at the 2008 Home Run Derby, or 11.14 German goals vs. Brazil.

Wayne Gretzky scored 92 goals in 1981-82. Germany would need to replicate their win 6.57 times.
