Looking back at my Brazil pictures (which I will share once I am done sorting them out!), one moment that always makes me go, "YAAAASSSSS" is when Rob & I carried Messi & Di Maria (of Argentina WC Team) fatheads during the Belgium vs Argentina at Brasilia.

We were kinda like celebrities for a day. Tons of Argentina fans wanted to take pictures with us, we were on the jumbo screen for a couple of times and even the Press Photographers kept on signaling us to pose and take pictures with these Fatheads...
So one day, during sleepy time in Sao Paulo, I started googling "Argentina Fans Brazil World Cup"... and low and behold I found this picture...

Then next thing you know I found out that they used these pictures for several news posts...
|Univision Deportes & Fox News.|
I woke Robert up and went, "HAHAHAHAHA WE IN THE NEWS" Even he was giddy (he rarely gets giddy).
So for that game, it was a success... We brought the Messi Fathead to the Holland vs Argentina game in Sao Paulo but Mr. Security guy prohibited it. We were bummed... Esp when Argentina won the game via Penalty Kicks.
Oh well. We had fun. Good thinking on my Boo for bringing these Fatheads.
