    Brazil's only strong game, quarterfinals against Colombia

     
    I'm American, but my heart is Brazilian. I spent my fourth of july weekend in Fortaleza to watch Brazil play against Colombia with my family. I wanted to make up for the pain my grandfather felt when at the age of 16, he ran away from home to watch Brazil lose in the Maracanazo of 1950. Alas, it was to no avail, as Brazil was demolished in the semi-final. However, the experience of watching Brazil win was one of the most emotionally gratifying experiences of my life.
