The Great Match

I saw a really good movie last night called "The Great Match." It's about three groups of people in different parts of the world who are trying to watch the World Cup Soccer match between Brazil and Germany. There are Mongolian nomads, Tuaregs and Brazlian Indians. There is gorgeous footage of the Mongolians hunting with eagles.

One of my favorite lines has to do with the Amazon Indians, who go to a mission hoping to watch the match on TV, they have already complained that the new mission priest is American and does not like soccer. When they get to the mission a fat guy is watching baseball. The indians ask if they can watch soccer and the fat guy tells them soccer is stupid. As they paddle off down the Amazon the Indians talk amongst themselves.

"The Americans are very advanced", says one Indian.

"What makes you think they are so advanced?" asks another.

"Because when we get angry we use sticks to hit each other over the head until our heads split open," says the Indian. When the Americans get angry they hit a ball with a stick. That's advanced!"
