So yesterday in the World Cup, hosting country Brazil was embarrassed by Germany 7-1. To me…big deal…there has to be a winner and a loser in any team competition but that wasn’t the case in Brazil.
Brazilians went nuts. An announcement was made for German fans to stay inside the stadium so they could be escorted out for their safety. Really? If my country just got embarrassed on national TV the last thing I would wanna do is act like a bunch of crazies that escaped from Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory.
Brazil…ya lost. How does setting a couch on fire in a furniture store change that? I’m a Browns fan…I can’t imagine how many cars I would have flipped over in my lifetime if I acted like these idiots. One of my complaints about soccer is that it’s so boring because no one scores. Yesterday was exciting for me because I saw a shitload of goals but I never expected what I watched. I’d understand walking out of the stadium with my head hung low and maybe stopping for a few post game brews to drown my sorrows but the last thing I’d expect is someone grabbing a 55 gallon drum on fire and tossing it through a coffee shop’s window.
I take back my original thought when the World Cup began a few weeks ago….soccer isn’t boring at all.
