Copacabana Dreams

The left footers really should know better. Don’t they read the good book? Graven images aren’t allowed. God is not happy. After trying to hold his temper and count to, I don’t know, a virgintillion and one his patience ran out and he rained down on the Rio statue of Christ the Redeemer some very, very frightening tautological thunderbolts and lightning.

Aiming this year to travel more, Brazil is one of the countries on my goto list. My goal is not to help fix the statue or swim in the Amazon river or look at the rock paintings in the Parque Nacional da Serra da Capivara. Would you believe I’m not even going there to watch the skimpily clad carnival girls rocococoing in the flesh. My mission is to make the natives better at football. Coming from where I come from I’m sure my ministry will be helpful in this godforsaken land of no-hopers. After all, my five-a-side team have won their last few matches.

    I hope I’m not too late to wish you a Good New Year, especially by your own low standards thereanent. I am, of course, secure in the knowledge that I’m not too late by about 344 days or thereby in so doing by my reckoning..

    Anyhoo and Brazil-wise,, we Jocks have already been there and done that so it’s coals to Newcastle time I am afraid.

    Just a shame that we won’t be there next year to cheer on our English chums in their latest foray into the Americas for World Cup glory.

    Talking of which, please remind me? Did Bobby Moore ever give that bracelet back?

  2. Mmmmmm…. I fear that exporting football to Rio may well be akin to attempting to spread Christianity to the Vatican.

    I do however like the concept, may I suggest cricket?
