Every day I pick up the paper I find another reason not to like the Brazilian National Team.
Today’s cover of the sports section is a child soldier standing with a wooden rifle in a stadium in Harare, Zimbabwe. The CBF (Corrupto Bosta Fodido) is collecting US$1.8 million for tomorrow’s game, which will no doubt feature Ricardo Teixeira sitting next to Roberto Mugabe in the vip section. Brining the Brazilians to Harare will help to legitimate Mugabe’s twisted regime while directing a chunk of money to the pockets of the CBF. The only critical analysis undertaken by OGlobo was the headline “In Zimbabwe, we’re the circus: The population of Harare, capital of this African country, one of the poorest in the world, sees this game with the Seleção as a miracle, while the dictator Mugabe in power for thirty years, uses the game to legitimate his regime.” E daí, porra?
Lula. My god, man, grow up. He used his weekly radio address yesterday to ask Brazilians to support the team, which no one likes because Dunga’s team is basically a footballing expression of the neo-liberal economic approach of the PT. The only creativity comes out of destruction and the benefits of winning with “futebol de resultados” accrue to the politicians and thieves at the CBF.
Pentecostals, the team is full of them. Why does every other sentence have to have “se deus quiser” in it (if god wants, or the Brazilian version of Inshallah). God doesn’t give two shites about football, nor did, does, or will he (in this case) help but the ball in the back of the ol’onion bag . No self-respecting Christian would play for the CBF, knowing that his salary is paid for with the blood of the child soldiers defending Mugabe’s regime. I know that it’s human nature to throw your hands up in the air in celebration, but palms in the air and a prolonged skyward gaze make me want to throw a basket full of snakes into the dressing room to really test the faith.
