As a Brazilian, I’m plagued by the common sense that every Brazilian loves football - or, as our friends in the US call it, soccer. It is true that most Brazilians do, regardless of the poor quality in the sport as played in Brazil lately - my father’s opinion, he being a strong follower of both Brazilian’s and European’s football.
Well, it is the world’s most popular sport, so the 2018 FIFA World Cup surely attracks a lot of people - sidenote here, the third most popular sport is… Cricket? I guess a billion Indians make it so . I don’t really care about it, but I’m sure surrounded by people who do, a great deal, including my wife. So it is only fitting that I come along for gathering of friends willing to get together to watch - there’s usually good food involved, in most cases Brazilian barbecue when there’s a lot of us involved.
Yesterday, first match of the Brazilian national team, we were about 20 people in a park, barbecueing and chatting and - most of us - intently watching the game in a 11" laptop. Second side note: what a good opportunity would it be to test out a Nebula Mars 2, right? Since it was a match between Brazil and Switzerland, other than fellow Brazilians not many people where following it. But on the previous days, at home, I noticed cheers coming from the neighbours in several occasions, my wife dutifully informing me of which match was being played. Montreal being as multicultural as it is, almost no team goes unsupported here.
Which made me wonder: how many of us here in the Anker community are following the World Cup? What are your habits, if any, to watch the games? Any Anker products involved in your set up? if you don’t follow football, which sport do you follow?
I’m counting on my Soundcore Flare test unit to come before Brazil’s next game to put it to the test - and wonder my friends - with the sound and lights!
