    “Jokingly the Argentine born pope told the Brazilian leader that “with all these gifts I will have to pray for Brazil to win the Cup””. ...Maybe the Pope should get on his Red Line and ask God to make Argentina beat Brazil in the final....can you imagine the negative, internal repercussion ?? lose in the final, and to Argentina ?? but, it's the best thing that could happen to Brazil, otherwise the FBoB will exploit it politically and the people will think she's wonderful....don't need that.
    @3 Math, probably in line with other bad omens, Lulla, Collor de Mello, Bollsa famillia, etc..
    @2 Brasileiro, why d'you want a crystal ball ? maybe you should get a crystal mirror, and ask it everyday, “ who is the stupidest of them all ? ” and the mirror will reply “YOU are, Brasileiro !!”
