aeromotacanucks Posted December 10, 2016 Share Posted December 10, 2016 I will make this topic to show how much people can actually unite when they want... Pretty much that before the accident that basically killed and entire football/soccer team you and pretty much 95% of people on this planet never actually noticed what Chapecoense was... Chapecoense was one of those teams that people never cared too much because it actually never did anything big to be noticed. the name comes from the city of Chapeco. who born in Chapeco is a "Chapecoense" so basically the team´s name means "Team from Chapeco"... Chapeco isn´t also a big city. in fact is a medium or even a small city with it´s 210.000 people in the west of the most Germanic place outside Germany. the state where Chapeco is located, Santa Catarina basically holds the record of possess 90% of the entire Germany population outside Germany. so no big surprise that the 2nd most spoken language in Santa Catarina aside from Portuguese is the Germany language... So basically Chapeco is a medium agricultural Germanic city and it´s only "atraction" is because it´s the last medium city before you can cross the border and reach Argentina even knowing that Foz do Iguaçu is 3 times bigger and you can also go to Paraguay from there (triple border) BUUUUT the accident showed to the entire world how a small unknown city from a wierd germanic state from a country that literally loves football/soccer so much to the point of being considered a religion and on a year that had an Olympic and a presidential impeachment at the same time... and even with all these huge amount of problems the accident showed that yes we can unite to the point where every single Brazilian can adopt a team that they didn´t know 2 days ago... not because of the team itself. but because the old traditional wierd Brazilian passion of "we´re all brothers" that make every single Brazilian a bunch of inconsequent passionist lover... Chapecoense was indeed a rising star. with a solid administration and coaching the team was going fast to the top. it was going to its 1st final on its 1st international competition and pretty much people were saying "ok not bad for a small team from a small city. now let the big team from Colombia will the final and be happy for being the 2nd place" BUUUUT once again the people from Chapeco were thinking big because as a good Brazilian-Germany people they are crazy wierdoes with a confusing accent that make all of them sound like Donald Trump speaking Germany... and honestly. people from Chapeco were right. the team was good... the accident of course destroyed not only a team but the city of Chapeco and even more. the state of Santa Catarina... BUT once again. the wierd crazy passion of Brazilians made the city of Chapeco remember that they have a country around them... Brazilians around the country, including me showed that if you hit one of us. you hit all of us... we showed support to a single city. we embraced the city of Chapeco. football teams around Brazil embraced Chapeco. it was a movement so big that it was as if we were saying... "you´re not alone Chapeco" we made one of the biggest football teams of earth. Corinthians and Flamengo put their diferences aside and say "we´re all Chapecoense" and honestly for a Brazilian see Corinthians and Flamengo joining forces is so wierd that looks like that North and South Korea joined forces to fight a common enemy... but yes they did. and yes they´re doing... so makes me and probably wonder one thing... why this is not done everyday? why people kill each other for a sport? why people kill each other just because the other person likes the other team? why what is being done now isn´t done all the time? it´s a sport. it´s supposed to be funny... it´s supposed to make people have fun together! unfortunatelly for people notice that a city had to lose it´s biggest pride... a small city that you never noticed about... a city that pretty much you don´t even care... but Chapeco is a nice city. with nice people. went there many times... but let´s not make their deaths in vain... let´s remember that althought the sport involves rivality and competition... it´s still a sport. not a war... Chapecoense will sure be rebuilt. and very likely will be bigger and stronger than ever... but this accident will mark that little city forever... that day where a small coty filled with hope and joy for their 1st big achievement ever that would put them on the map... well. didn´t end well. sadly... a city cried... a state cried... a country cried... because it´s just a sport... not a war... it´s supposed to be a funny moment... but for Chapeco was their funniest moment ever... small city... small team... big dreams... now gone... thw world came to show that indeed Chapeco wasn´t alone... and that indeed Brazil wasn´t alone... countries, teams, players... all became green and white... colours from Chapecoense... but also colours from the Brazilian flag... your team didn´t die in vain Chapeco... people will learn... it´s just a sport... not a war... it´s a sport. people have to enjoy the fun... we´re all Chapecoense... Colombia England a kid from Chapeco guns and roses. yes. they´re also green... no matter the country. this is not a war. this is a sport. we cry together. we rise together... even in Paris. they went green... bodies arrived in Chapeco. carried by the Brazilian Air Force. received with military honors... a city cry. a nation cry. but we stay together... no matter how strong the rain is. we honor our fallen citizens... thanks Brazilian Air Force! brought our boys back home! Brazilians showed a big support and kidness to our airforce since the accident... we´re all Chapecoense! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
