How I Became a Palmeiras Fan

Several people wrote asking me how my family came to Brazil and _______ Palmeirenses. So let me tell you the story about how I _______ a Palmeiras fan. Years ago when we came to Brazil and my parents were learning Portuguese in São Paulo, my father was "accosted" by several teenagers who asked him...

Are you Palmeirense or Corinthiano?

My father saw the uniforms of the two teams, __________ for a few seconds, and then asked...

- Which is the green team?

They answered, of course: Palmeiras. So my father said...

- So I'm "Palmeirense"!

And ever _______ , my father and I (by extension) have become...

________________ Palmeirenses! 🙂

How I Became a Palmeiras Fan

Several people wrote asking me how my family came to Brazil and became Palmeirenses.  So let me tell you the story about how I became a Palmeiras fan.  Years ago when we came to Brazil and my parents were learning Portuguese in São Paulo,my father was "accosted" by several teenagers who asked him...

  • accosted = abordado
  • teenagers = jovens, adolecentes

- Are you Palmeirense or Corinthiano?

My father saw the uniforms of the two teams, deliberated for a few seconds, and then asked...

  • deliberate = ponderar

- Which is the green team?

They answered, of course: Palmeiras. So my father said...

- So I'm "Palmeirense"!

And ever since, my father and I (by extension) have become...

dyed-in-the-wool Palmeirenses! 🙂

  • ever since (then) = desde então
  • by extension = (literalmente, "por extensão") portanto, consequentemente
  • dyed-in-the wool Palmeirense = Palmeirense "roxo"
Let's practice the phrase ‘cheer for’
How about you? What team do you cheer for? Please tell me about it below. (Remember, this is all in fun. Don't take the discussion too seriously. 😉 )

  • take it too seriously = levar muito à serio

I´m Dyed-in-the wool Corinthiano of course my friend and i´m very happy por this.

That’s ok, Paulo! You can still learn English with us here… haha

That makes two of us….lol.

Two of us that are Palmeirenses or Corinthianos?

Palmeirense., of course.

Oh, it seems your father became a Palmeiras fan for reasons beyond his control and, as a result, you did the same. You’re a good son. I believe I’d do the same if I were on your shoes, anyway.

As for me? I’m a Corinthiano. Not a dyed-in-the wool one. I just keep a low profile.

And before I finish up here, let me say you have a nice accent. I’m quite sure you can speak Portuguese as well as English. That’s amazing!!! LOL

Thanks, Fábio! I guess we could say it was “fate” that made me a Palmeirense. haha

Congratulations Tim! I’ve already liked you, and now I like more! I’m palmeirense too! Go Verdão, hehe!

I am dyed in the wool SÃO PAULINO. (It seens that I am the first one here, no?)
