I played in my very first soccer game when I was six years old and have loved the sport, whether you call it futebol or soccer, ever since. It’s great to see the growing excitement around the FIFA World Cup matches, as the US National team is still alive and kicking, pun intended, making it through a difficult group. Our office had a lunchtime viewing of today’s game with plenty of enthusiastic fans. Luxury hotels are getting in on the action too with Brazilian-themed hotel packages for those not able to travel to South America. The Brazilian Package (starting at $139 per night) includes dinner for two at Brazilian Steakhouse Night, one Brazilian Wax at (Las Vegas) and is offered until Friday, July 11 at JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort and Rampart Casino.
