“Are you floppin’ to me?”
Mercifully, today’s rain-soaked Germany-USA contest featured very little of that aspect of the otherwise usually beautiful game. But if it had, a certain unexpected guest at a Brooklyn viewing party could have most authoritatively yelled out that query to the big-screen TV.
De Niro was in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood Thursday to film The Intern and, according to a neighbor, he wanted to take a break to watch the crucial World Cup game between the United States and Germany. The neighbor told Business Insider their apartment building got an email from Warner Bros. asking if they could help De Niro see the game.
