2010 World Cup: let's root for Brazil! / Copa do Mundo 2010: vamos torcer pelo Brasil!

Tomorrow Brazil is going to play its first game in South Africa 2010 World Cup! Here, people are already rooting for it and decorating the streets with the colors of Brazilian’s flag! In Rio de Janeiro is a tradition, every World Cup we have a competition, with good prizes, to elect the most beautiful and well decorated street. We call the sport “football”, not “soccer”, and people are completely crazy about it, not only in international championships, but also in national ones! Because of this, almost everybody will stop doing everything tomorrow at 3:30 pm sharp to watch the game. I know, it’s a bit insane, as any other fanaticism, but that’s the way it is! So, as I cannot fight against it, I will have to stop everything only to watch the game, also because Brazil is trying to win the championship for the sixth time!!!

Amanhã o Brasil vai fazer o seu primeiro jogo na Copa do Mundo da África do Sul. Aqui já estão todos torcendo e enfeitando as ruas com as cores da bandeira do Brasil! É uma tradição no Rio, toda Copa do Mundo nós temos uma competição, com bons prêmios, para eleger a rua mais enfeitada, bonita e alegre. Nós chamamos o esporte de futebol, e não de soccer, e todos são absolutamente loucos por ele, não somente nos campeonatos internacionais, mas também nos nacionais. Por causa disto, quase todos vão parar tudo para assistir ao jogo, amanhã às 15:30 em ponto! Eu sei, é um pouco louco, como qualquer outro fanatismo, mas é do jeito que as coisas são! Então, como eu não posso lutar contra isso, eu vou ter que parar tudo também para assistir ao jogo, ainda mais que agora que o Brasil vai tentar o hexacampeonato!!!

Thanks a lot Marty!!!
And this is before any game, imagine if Brazil wins today, wow!
But you know, I'm a little bit nervous about this game because Brazil is so favorite…ok, North Korea’s team is not as strong as ours, but as Brazilians say, football is a box of surprises!
