... soaking up the carnival atmosphere as the hosts claimed a 2-1 victory. Although the Fan Fests are a good idea and they're the best way to sample the Brazilian spirit, they are very crowded and a lot of the regulars seem to be 14-16 year-olds who had a chance to drink alcohol in public without a risk of being caught.
