Let’s Play Soccer, Brazil vs. Peru.

Michael Palin, formerly of Monty Python just finished a series about Brazil.  Sabine Hyland, Professor Extraordinaire studies the Inca Civilization.  So here is another silly look from me, Brazil vs. Peru, playing soccer against each other.

Brazil is flat and steamy, Peru is up and down the Andes Mountains.    Brazil had small Native American groups, Peru a massive civilization (In some aspects possibly more civilized than the Spaniards who destroyed it).

The World Cup is in Brazil next year.  Brazil is the world’s best soccer nation.  How will Quechua and Aymara Indians (The Inca Descendants) fare in Brazil?  If the Brazilian team went to Peru, can you imagine them playing?  Make the site of the game, Macchu Pichu.  There I said it, 8000 feet above sea level.  The Brazilians would be playing folks that see running up and down mountains as routine.  (They must have really big strong hearts).  The Brazilians would get heated up quickly, but would collapse with no substitutions.  “Whose bright idea was this,”  the Brazilians, cried.

In Brazil, the mountain players wouldn’t have the interruptions of sheer drops they are accustomed to.  Should be interesting.

OK, I would bet on Brazil.  I’ve been silly long enough in this post.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
