US fans show­ing up in force in Brazil

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

RE­CIFE, Brazil (AP) — Some wanted to play soc­cer bare­foot on the beach with Brazil­ians, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing for them­selves those ro­man­ti­cized im­ages they’d seen on TV. Oth­ers dreamed of at­tend­ing mean­ing­ful games in the home­land of Pele, soak­ing up the pas­sion for the game per­me­at­ing not just the sta­di­ums, but ev­ery cor­ner of ev­ery neigh­bor­hood.

If they could do that, maybe tip back a few caipir­in­has, munch on cox­in­has, take a dip in the south At­lantic, and cheer on the U. S. na­tional team, what a trip it would be.
