The Sport

Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime,” and many are using the World Cup— and its necessary travel to Brazil if you’d like to experience it in person— to broaden their horizons. With citizens of the United States making up the largest contingent of “out of country visitors” to the World Cup, we can only hope many, if not all, take advantage of the opportunity presented to them and come away a little better-off for their travel.
