    With the Olympics just weeks away, the relay teams in Brazil are running the torch through the city for all to see.

    Peru shocked the world on Sunday when the beat Brazil, 1-0, knocking the soccer giants out of the Copa America Centenario.

    This Brazilian Player Protests Call by Pulling Down His Shorts (Video)

    I’m not sure what injustice this player suffered to protest in this manner, so I can’t really speak to his guilt or innocence.

    Mascots are not supposed to get wrapped up in the game. In fact, they exist for the exact opposite reason.

    Brazil beat Peru by a score of 2-1 during their opening match at the 2015 Copa America tournament, and they have Neymar to thank for their first three points.
