A Brazilian journalist claims that he was questioned by authorities in Qatar and almost had the flag of the state of Pernambuco, his homeland, taken from his hands. The Pernambuco flag has a rainbow on a blue background.

Maybe, just maybe, if these guys see a rainbow in the sky, they would shoot missiles.

I gotta admit, before I became a Japanese citizen, I wouldn’t have even really cared. But this does feel pretty good. Sorry, Germany (I still love you too).

Wow that stands in stark contrast compared to how american and european sports fans react to their team winning (I still got that moment of a guy eating horse shit after his team won the super bowl burned into my brain)

In latest news, plucky underdogs Brazil have seen off tournament favourites Serbia in a two-nil upset that has my neighbours (no.23) talking.
Newcomer Neymar (Brazil, some, or lots, of goals to his name) may well have scored in this game.
He may actually have scored twice, or someone else did. Frankly, I wasn’t watching, but I am reliably informed that, against all odds, there was a goal, or two of them.
Anyway, well done you.
