Late last night a little team you may have heard of called the Brazilian National Team was bounced from the Copa America tournament. They tied Ecuador, beat Haiti, and lost to Peru. These are not good results for them and is a particularly frustrating time for fans considering the way they went careening at the speed of light out of the last world cup.
I want a good Brazil, you want a good Brazil the world is better with a good Brazil competing at the highest levels. We need smiling players and commercials in airports and a sense of good old fashioned summertime hijinx from them out on the field.
One of my favorite things to come out of the world of soccer is this video featuring the glamorous 1998 Brazilian squad. Watch this and tell me you don’t want this back in your life.
