The Beautiful Game: Part II

everyday snapshot - II

I met a Brazilian girl once.

Serendipity rolled the dice and during my travels I was gifted the opportunity to meet a true Brazilian  beauty. It was a whirlwind relationship that  felt like a lifetime; but was actually only 48 hours. Thanks to stereotypes I had been fed, and I devoured, my expectations were sky high. Additionally I was so wrapped up in the excitement of the moment, that I imagined the relationship would undoubtedly conclude in a lust-filled explosion of passion before we parted our separate ways.

Well it concluded. 

The reality fell flat. 
As it turned out I had met a devout Brazilian Mormon.

A parting hug in public was perceived as risque.


Well the World Cup is deep in the middle of the initial matches and we still have a long way to go. Technically we are not even at the halfway point of initial matches played.
Has anyone else been watching? Are you converted yet?

In this World Cup, Italy alone has over 1,0233 passes attempted.
Thus far.

And some of those have actually been on the field!

Ha ha- Get it?!

Still don't get it?

Passes = soccer ball passes; passes at girls...

I know. Lame joke, but I made it up myself.

Well, if Soccer is not your thing, remember there is plenty of action off the field as well.
Here is another little video related to The Beautiful Gamethat should make you all smile. (Speaking of, did the previous video make anyone smile besides me?)


Question for the Day: Who's ready to get in on some World Cup action?
Happy Friday!


  1. Hahaha! Mormons...they're EVERYWHERE.

  2. I am watching it, my sister lives in Brazil so I am watching it because I love soccer and I look in the crowd just in case my sister is there in the corner with her two children. :-) :-)

  3. @ Autumn - LOL Apparently they are.

    @ Trish - That is very cool! Hope you do see her.

  4. Thanks Sir, I hope I do too, she was at the USA and Brazil game, but I didn't see her. I am hoping to save enough money to go back to Brazil and stay with her 6 months, I hope to any way. :-) :-) I was with her back in 1999, I loved it there it's vary beautiful there, I was there for 6 1/2 months I had a hole year of winter, it was there winter when I went but it isn't as bad as our winter get' s, but it's more of a damp cold.
