Sports In Brazil

There is no doubt about what the main sport in Brazil is. Soccer (futebol) is king in Brazil, and Brazilians are crazy about it. You see people playing everywhere. And they are very passionate about their favorite team. You always know when a professional game is going on, because there is alot of fireworks whenever a team scores.

Basketball is popular, as is volleyball and Formula 1. On regular Brazilian tv you will only find soccer, but on cable tv you can find some NFL football, baseball, basketball, and NASCAR races. We have to watch college football (my personal favorite) and college basketball on free internet sites.

I'm married to an Englishman, and we watched the world cup game Brazil Vs. England together a few years ago. The couple who lived in the apartment across from us were from Brazil and it was like 4 in the morning... but you could hear them screaming and yelling and we did too! I twas really fun. Congrats Brazil!

Jenn, thanks for reading my blog and for your comment. Brazilians are definitely crazy for their futebol, even at 4 am. But I think the English probably are too. Take care and God bless.
