As you may know, some big names have lost in the FIFA World Cup Games this year...
my favorite, Italy
France, Argentina, USA and closest to home, (at least at this point in my life)
Well, my husband was still in Rio while that game happened.
Mind you, he works for a
large, international, multi-billion dollar company
but football is above all else.
Everyone stopped work and watched the Brasil games in the conference rooms.
On Friday, they watched as their whole life went down the drain.
I am not exaggerating!
People were crying, unable to control their overwhelming feeling of loss.
One of my husband's most valuable, reliable, predictable employees
asked to go home because he just could not concentrate!
That is the passion of football in Brasil...
but they are resilient and believe 2014,
when the World Cup is in their country,
will be their year.
I still will vote for Italy...
but my heart will go out for all the Brasilians.
