Since I’ve been in Saudi Arabia, I’ve developed a habit of carrying a camera everywhere. And now that I got an iTouch, I have the means to image anywhere anytime. But this happened a year ago. I’m just catching up to myself and have gotten all the digital files in some order. At that time I would wander randomly and forage for a spot to eat. I hadn’t stopped in Subway (sandwiches) in forever. As I came to the counter, these guys asked me to take their picture because they saw that I had a camera. They looked at the image and then continued ordering sandwiches. Random, chance encounter… they don’t do that in New York.
No piercings, no tattoos-clean-cut. I did notice the emblem on the yellow t-shirt, had to look CBF up.
“The Brazilian Football Confederation (Portuguese: Confederação Brasileira de Futebol or CBF) is the governing body of football in Brazil. It was founded on June 8, 1914, as Confederação Brasileira de Desportos (CBD), meaning Brazilian Sports Confederation. Its first president was Álvaro Zamith. It organizes the Brazilian national competitions, like Campeonato Brasileiro de Futebol (all four levels) and Copa do Brasil, as well as the regional competition Copa do Nordeste. CBF also administers the Brazil national football team and the Brazil women’s national football team. Brazilian clubs with professional football teams are the members of CBF; the state federations, which organize the state championships, are subordinated to the CBF. Each member club is associated both to CBF and to the State’s local federation, just like national associations are both members of FIFA and of the respective continental confederation.
The organization is based in Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro state. The confederation owns a training center, named Granja Comary, located in Teresópolis.”

Around here everyone is wild for soccer. I remain oblivious. People will often ask about an exciting match and whether I saw it…. Nope?!
