If They Ever Discover Real Football, It's Over
Brazilians, according to a feature article in today's Times, are fanatical about soccer. I, for one, am grateful. Why? Because with one of the world's fastest-growing economies, an appealing climate, and a population of beautiful people who, if popular imagery is any guide, like to run around largely naked for no good reason, Brazil is almost inconceivably awesome. I imagine that only its people's devotion to this lamest of sports keeps the nation from floating off into some heavenly realm, inhabited only by seraphim and cherubim. Thank you, Brazil.
