World Cup Final: Mario Götze goal, LeBron catches streaker

Mario Götze is a name you'll see Monday after Germany's 1-0 win over Argentina.

For the fourth time, Germany is the champion of the world.

It took 113 minutes, but a pair of German substitutes made it happen. Andre Schurrle had a nice cross to 22-year-old Götze who then sealed the deal, scoring the only goal in extra time. 

Plenty of fans shared their excitement on Twitter, including U.S. Men's Head Coach (and former German player) Jurgen Klinsmann: "YES YES YES !!! JOGI YOU DID IT !!! HUGE COMPLIMENT TO ARGENTINA, BUT THE BEST TEAM WON THE 2014 WORLD CUP! #DFBTeam #USMNT #FifaWorldCup"

And how else do we celebrate winning the World Cup in 2014?

Take a selfie, of course. German forward Lukas Podolski took one with a teammate minutes after the final whistle blew, and then later with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

What many of us didn't know was that they were really just trying to hide a partially-clothed man who ran onto the pitch. Lucky for us at home, NBA all-star LeBron James was a spectator at the match and captured the whole thing on his Instagram account.

 

Strangers receive 'drive-by' compliments

Doesn't it just make your day when someone gives you a random compliment?

In a viral video titled "Drive-By Compliments," Blake Grigsby, of Chicago, shouts them through a megaphone at random people on the sidewalk.

Grigsby, a 20-year-old student studying digital cinema at DePaul University, yells statements like "You have beautiful hair!" and "Love the shirt!" from a car to strangers in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago.

"The reactions were just as positive as we hoped," he told ABC News. "A lot of people were really confused at first, as you'd probably expect. But then they listen and they hear the words, and they're like, 'Oh, thanks!'"
