We beat Cuba 3 - 0 to win 3rd straight world championship Volleyball!!!!! YES!!!
I had a great time watching this game! That was some epic thrashing.
What makes it more delicious:
-Cuba is like the Argentina of Volley, our bitter rivals
- That Bulgaria guy that said we threw the game because we were afraid of Cuba must be looking funny right now
- We defeated Italia on their own turf, even though the touney format favored them
I'm a fan of Murilo. Great player, seems to be a nice person too. Bruno amazes me too, the levantador is such a difficult role, you have to be very intelligent and think so damn fast, I played that role a few times so I can tell it is really hard!
...That Leon kid is really impressive, isn't he?
Brasil vs ITalia is a huge revalry. Italy is the only other country to have won tri-campeonato before! The Cuban team is young... watch them out later!!!
Brasil has plenty of talent - everyone was great!
I know for sure that the rivaly with Cuba is really strong in the Females Volleyball NT. I remember a few years ago, when Bernardinho was still coaching the girls, that we won the finals and we could see it live some of our players getting chased by Cuban players with murder intents in their eyes Plus all the taunting close to the net during the game. You could feel the enmity!
Brasil: simply the best.
Thanks to Bakaman for providing all his insights on Voleyball- a very important sport in Brasil.
