    Go to downloads and it should be on the left side of the page. It's a great documentary. I wish they showed Espirito Santo.

    I downloaded and watched the whole thing tonight.

    It's an awesome production. Great stories to follow (particularly Romarinho and Celso I thought) and amazing images. Some of the highlights were: playing soccer on a barge on the amazon river; the futal game set up between Falcão and Robinho at the end; and anything Falcão did with the ball. You think Ronaldinho Gaúcho has ball control?

    I recommend the whole thing to anyone who can download it. If you can't, definitely try and catch it on FSC.

    damn....romario is crazy. Kid has alot of heart. To bad about that other kid, I forget his name, but the one that didnt make the team.....and he was doing the car parking thing.....they do that in Portugal too...go figure huh.

    Interesting about the Amazon team, that was crazy. Robinho is too nice with it, he was dressing maddddd flashy though!

    Falcão's skills are sick. But he isn't a good outdoor player. If you saw the interview you'll remember that he wasn't even a good indoor player, just a guy with some amazing skills, until he started making the effort to play more for the team like he does now.

    But if all it took to be a good outdoor player were ball-control skills, then whoever holds the world record for juggling the ball would be a great player too!

    Falcao really reminds me of those crazy players you see in the city courts like in New York and Chicago...streetball legends and whatnot. The guy is amazing. I thought it was funny to see him suit up for Sao Paulo last year though. haha.
