Walk with Cham's Brazilian Hairventure in Maracana Football Stadium
Football is the most important game in Brazil. Every time Brazil plays in the World Cup the whole country intensely anticipates the match (similar to us Filipinos when watching a Pacquiao fight)

My Mama & I didn't miss the chance of watching a football match in this gigantic stadium. Honestly, we haven't really watched any football game but we really couldn't pass this opportunity to witness a football match especially that we were in the biggest football community for football fans on earth.
At that time, the two competing football clubs were Botafogo and Atletico. We really didn't have any idea who to cheer for so we agreed that our bet would be the team who had the most number of fans (para iwas sa gulo, ayoko mapaaway!)

We cheered for Botofago since most of the Carioca crowd love them... (wait... erase the word love, substitute to...) CRAZY! The crowd were CRAZY for their team! To tell you honestly, the crowd was more exciting to watch. They were immensely raving for their team! They were W-I-L-D!!! So wild that you can see them chanting, shouting, yelling at the opponent & screaming their lungs out whenever the ball reached the goal.
It was already 12:30am when the game ended but the crowd didn't seem to mind. They were happy Botafogo won! (I kinda felt sorry for Atletico though)
Watching a football match in Maracana Stadium (even if you're not a football fan like us) is an experience you shouldn't want to miss when you're in Brazil.
