World Cup 2014 Brazil opens to fanfare and controversy
It seems nowadays few countries can pull off large sporting events. Olympics or World Cups lead to heavy debt loads. That doesn't bode well for countries with significant social issues. Brazil is one. they will do both (WC and Olympics) in the next two years. Today the WC opened to much fanfare. This is, after all, the largest sporting event the world sees. So many countries, so many participants, so much attention. It's exciting, but it comes at a cost that the average Brazillian laments in between games.
