Brazil Makes Fun Of Super Bowl Blackout, Blame It On Rio

SÃO PAULO, Brazil–Brazilians usually have little time for the U.S. version of football, but they can’t stop talking about this year’s Super Bowl. Subjected for years to questions about whether Brazil is prepared to effectively host the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, there was more than a little glee as the world’s richest country messed up its most important sporting event. Soccer legend Ronaldo, who has repeatedly stressed that Brazil will be ready for the World Cup, tweeted: “It’s not easy for anyone! #nfl” and then, “It looks like someone from the 49ers threw a cat into the converter… not trying to cause a fight…just giving an opinion” to the delight of his millions of followers.

Brian Winter, chief correspondent for Reuters in Brazil, was more direct: “US definitely not prepared to host World Cup or Olympics,” he tweeted.

Super Bowl black- out still undetermined. Blame it on Rio..
