Have You Seen This Child?

Neymar sad

That's his "Wish I hadn't signed through 2014" face.

By now, you’ve likely heard that Barcelona squashed Santos 4-0 in the FIFA Club World Cup final, which will hopefully get Pelé to shut up for a few days. Unless you’re a diehard Barca fan, though, you probably didn’t wake up in the middle of the night to watch this game live from Japan. Suffice it to say that Neymar had a rather quiet evening in Tokyo, and the sports dailies in Brazil were quick to point it out.

The paper in the photo on the right ran a headline that says “Searching for Missing Child”, which is comical given Neymar’s kindergarten poutface. They also tacked on a little phrase under the scoreline which translates literally as “it was a dance”, but basically means “we got spanked”. I kinda doubt too many grieving Santos fans will want that Barça poster being advertised just under Neymar’s right ear.

Barcelona won their 14th international cup, moving into 5th all-time and 3rd among European clubs (behind AC Milan and Real Madrid). Not surprisingly, Messi and his pals from La Masía account for fully half of those 14 titles. And he’s only 24, which boggles the mind.

    No, it literally translates to “Without the Dance”. In Brazil “take someone to dance” means humiliate them in the football field. So, they are saying that it was 4-0 plus the humiliation.

    @Guillermo: Thanks. My Portuguese is not so good, as you can see. Thought I had the gist of it, though.

    Did anyone else who watched it want to hit Christopher Sullivan in the head? I don’t want to hear him call a game ever again. I thought he had an orgasm after every goal.

    Third-rate indeed, BG.
