Is the 2014 Brazil World Cup logo prophetic?
It sure looks like a “facepalm” to many
, and it just so happens that the country isn’t quite ready to host the world’s most-watched sporting event this June.
Sao Paulo stadium, for example, apparently won’t be complete until the “last minute
.” If it isn’t doesn’t all come together, the facepalm graphic will be all too appropriate.
Brazil isn’t alone, however. Many of the world’s major sporting events often cut it close when it comes to preparation. You may recall the number of issues in Sochi
prior to this year’s Winter Olympics.
As if the pressures placed upon the respective governing committees for such events weren’t huge enough, there’s a general acceptance that whatever logo or mascot they approve is likely be ripped apart by the all-criticizing Internet
It’s as if all the staging that goes into these massive undertakings is more for scrutiny than it is sport.
