Slice of life in Brazil American newspaper readers won’t read about

We all know Brazil is football (sorry, soccer) crazy.

And it seems that crooks in Brazil know that when the final games are played if the best time to do a daring robbery.

Thieves steal $6m under cover of Brazil’s football fever

Unfortunately because the U.S. media representation in Brazil is so limited, this story did not make it to the U.S. papers or television reports.

It will probably start showing up soon as CNN et al pick up on the story.

You have to admit this is a good one that really captures just how football crazy this country is. Too bad this slice of life in Brazil will get a limited U.S. audience — if one at all.
