I have Brazilian Pride!
Yes, I am also Canadian but I have Brazil flowing through my veins! A true Brazilian at heart!
So I did something that must have shocked a Canadian base.
I hung up my Brazilian flag!
I have no problem showing pride for my home country, I don't get to do it often- show my true colors. Every four years and during the Summer Olympics I scream louder for Brazil. Don't get me wrong, I'll still cheer for Canada but when it comes to beach volleyball and soccer I'm all about Brazil!
A war of words has begun on Facebook between a bunch of friends. Everyone has their team and no of us will be on speaking terms at least for the time this event is over! Even Cpl. Mayhem who can't see the games is getting in on the smack talk!
I have so many great memories of watching the Cup in Brazil and home with my family when we moved to Nova Scotia.
I hate that I'm missing watching it with my parents because it's no fun watching it with little ones who don't understand the game and the seriousness of a win!
I feel sorry for my neighbour tomorrow when I watch Brazil versus Korea.
So until the end of FIFA I will be flying my flag!
