They've Got An Awful Lot of Soccer in Brazil

  • The pressure will be on the next few World Cup host countries. After South Africa pulled off a successful World Cup, with a minimum of crime and violence, it’s up to the next few countries to live up to that standard.

    South Africa also stepped up with the locals picking up the slack for low ticket sales to foreigners. Really, the only bad part of going to the games was Budweiser buying the rights to sell beer at the WC matches. Bud isn’t even a brand down there (and South Africa Brewing*** actually owns Miller beer in the US). It was a damn shame.

    ***I was doing work for SAB, which is why I was down there in the first place.
