World Cup games are on!

“Football is the ballet of the masses.” –― Dmitri Shostakovich

I love the World Cup.  I am from Brazil, so that maybe a given.  I don’t love the World Cup in December and in Qatar, but that is what we have, so I am going to enjoy it.

Lucky for me all the brokers work from home, so at the office I can watch whatever I want.  In the office is just my assistant/co-worker and I.  The boss/partner stops by once every month or two.

I get to watch all the games from my desk.  It is not the same as watching from home, but it is not too bad.  I go home to watch all of Brazil’s games. Brazil is doing well so far.  It has already advanced to the round of 16, so tomorrow’s game is mostly practice for the players on the reserve.

Of course I hope Brazil wins it it all.  But the competition is fierce, and we don’t always play our best game. May the most deserving team win!  I do love when an underdog wins.

I love the energy and fun of the World Cup.  I love to see all the fans dressed in their team color.  The next World Cup will be in 2026 and will be shared by the US, Canada and Mexico.  I am already planning on attending a game or two 🙂

“Soccer isn’t the same as Bach or Buddhism. But it is often more deeply felt than religion, and just as much a part of the community’s fabric, a repository of traditions.” ― Franklin Foer
