BBC: An American trying to dribble a football from Seattle to Brazil in time for the 2014 Brazil World Cup has died less than two weeks into his trip.
I’m sorry but dude, what are you doing? Get a job or something. Raise money through a foundation or a fund raiser. Dribbling a soccer ball down the west coast of the United States all the way to Brazil in time for next summer’s World Cup? There HAS to be a better way. Can’t say I’m surprised he was hit by a car TWO WEEKS into his trip.
I hate to be insensitive here. The guy had the best intentions in mind and was trying to raise money and awareness for a great cause. But again, there’s gotta be a better way. Well, may he rest in peace and hopefully more good comes out of this than he expected because the story has gone pretty viral so far.
But if CotW is to spread some advice to those of you who may be looking to get to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, try flying.
