Nowhere near Kansas

As mentioned in yesterday’s post, the family and I went on a nine-day cruise off the eastern shoreline of South America. We started in Brazil and in fact the majority of the passengers and a large portion of the crew were from that large country.

That last sentence was just the set-up for this query…

How can you tell you are on a Brazilian ship?

Because when the Super Bowl was being held on February 3 while we were at sea, the cruise line did not broadcast the game between the Ravens and the 49ers. No TV anywhere on the floating vessel – not in the cabins, not in the sports bar, not on the giant video screen by the pool – showed the teams coached by the Brothers Harbaugh battling it out.

However, a few days later, when Brazil played England in a friendly soccer game…that contest was shown on every available screen. Even the giant video display by the pool.

By the way, England won 2-1 much to the dismay of 98% of the passengers.
