When they say football is a religion over there they are not wrong, these guys have been treated like arriving gods! Love the escort shot!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 03-07-02 AT 05:35 AM (GMT)]Hi, Primer55 and Glenn!

The thing is, Glenn, that we've been short of happiness around here. Any occasion to celebrate is indeed rather 'willkommen'!! ;-)

That fella Ronaldo himself is a piece of work! He's spent the last two and a half years struggling to recover from severe injuries at both of his knees. Many believed he'd never play again.
Even with all the good physicians in the world, it took him a fair amount of willingness. For that reason, he's being considered a national hero, an example of how we as a country, can also overcome our 'socio/economical' problems if we work hard, with the help of God and some luck.


Please, check out some other photos at:

I didn't see this topic. Sorry!

Kindest Regards,

Walter.

the message radioed to the players (video)

This is the message radioed to the players by the leader of the escorting planes: (I feel so patriotic)...

"Welcome, penta-champions! Thanks to you, the world has verified one more time, the talent, the determination, the competence and fiber of the brazilian people.
To the Brazilian Air Force in particular, it is a previlege to escort you and to arrive together at the blessed soil of Brazil!"
