El maestro, Fernando Pitt

This guy was PHENOMENAL. And the nicest dude in the world. Went to the Samba y Sabor pregame party at Starbar on First Ave. before tonight’s game and caught Fernando outside on the sidewalk practicing for his performance inside the bar.

Also met Fernando, a freestyle soccer champion from Brazil, and we talked about what little I know about Brazilian futebol. In Spanish, because his English is limited and I know like three words in Portuguese. He’s a big fan of Ronaldo.

Sorry about the people who walk in front of the camera. Enjoy.
