Soccer. It’s a big thing in Brazil. Everyone belongs to a team. Whether it be in Serie A or Serie B, from where they were born or where they grew up, everyone likes a team. Corinthians, Santos, Palmeiras, Flamengo, Cruzeiro: these are probably the most famous soccer teams, but the list keeps going, and it’s not short. There are a few TV channels that only broadcast soccer games. Everyone is so passionate about this sport, and I’ve seen tears on people’s faces when the worst (in their opinion) team scores or when the best player has to leave the field due to an injury. There are a lot of emotions running through people’s bodies when they gather on a Sunday afternoon to have lunch and watch their beloved team play an important match which determines whether or not they will win the national league.
