Argentina and Germany fans gather in Rio to watch the World Cup Final

Soccer fans are some of the most passionate in all of sports and this group of Argentina supporters is yet another example. 

With Argentina set to take on Germany in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final at Estádio Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday afternoon, a group of five men rode 37 hours in a taxi from Buenos Aires to Rio. To be fair, one of the men in the group owns a taxi, so it is not as expensive of a trip as you may initially think. And oh yeah, they don't even have tickets​

There was one catch, however. 

According to the Miami Herald, two of the men were only allowed to join the road trip if they promised to marry their girlfriends if Argentina wins.

You have to wonder if they are rooting for Germany deep down.
