Name: Henrique Guytti and Alexander Blandin
Setting: Cock N’ Bull (326 S Edisto Ave.)

I haven’t seen a sports bar that is this passionate about soccer before.

A: Yeah, man, this is the place to watch soccer games, especially the World Cup.

Why do you think that is? What is special about this place?

A: The staff here is awesome. They are big soccer fans, too, and they have good drinks, great food. And they set up TVs all over the place for people to watch the game. It’s also just a great place to hang out.

H: I really like this place a lot because everyone here is laidback and likes to have a good time, and when the games are on they like to celebrate and show support for the U.S. team.

Where is your accent from?

H: I am from Brazil.

How did you end up in Columbia?

H: I am living here with friends over the summer, but I play soccer for Clemson.

A: I play for Clemson, too.

Soccer must be pretty serious for you if you are going to leave your country to keep playing.

H: It is. In Brazil, we don’t have school teams. I want to go pro, but I didn’t want to give up an education. If you want to go pro in Brazil you have to make the decision when you are 14 years old if you want to stay in school or leave to train for soccer.

What is your dream endorsement?

A: Definitely Nike. It’s an American company, and I want to help support America.

H: (laughs) Well, I wish there were a Brazilian company that made soccer products.
