To kick things off for the 2014 World Cup it’s fitting to post this video of one of the best — and definitely one of the most entertaining — soccer players of all time. Garrincha is considered by some to be even better than the great Pelé, yet he’s been semi-forgotten over the years.
The little footballer from the slums was known as the Joy of the People in Brazil — for good reason. The guy dribbled a soccer ball like a streetball player dribbles a basketball, but with sheer joy and happiness.
The video above is a great showcase of his amazing skill.
What do you think?
Today’s the first day of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
It’s also the first day of this blog… our official “launch” day. And we’re super excited… 🙂
We’ll be posting some interesting stuff here related to the biggest event in the world… and much much more… stay chuned… and enjoy!

After a lot of procrastination, I’m re-launching this little blog. It will be a “companion” blog to the main site here.
I hope to turn it into something that shocks and amazes… brightens your day… or at least makes you less bored for 30 – 60 seconds.
No matter what, it should be fun…
