mirrors, high-tech shirts and futebol

ronaldo, vieri and totti find themselves in front of a magic mirror. the mirror makes people disappear as soon as they speak a lie.
ronaldo goes up first and says: “i think i am the most beautiful man on earth” and *blop* he disappears.
next is vieri: “i think i am the most intelligent man” and *smack* he is no more.
finally comes totti, who only has the time to say: “i think…” and *bof* he is gone.

the new england shirts have “anatomically engineered moisture management panneling”.
yup!
what that means?
your guess is as good as mine.
the shirts have many small holes, probably…

alex bellos wrote a great book about brasilian football called “futebol – the brasilian way of life”.
i mentioned it here
its a great book with a great website, where you can ask alex your questions about brasilian football!
