    i wanted to share this because i thought maybe the religious roots of this team would be of interest.. there is a team in brasil, in the state of sao paulo called corinthians.. in brasil, the teams are really part of social/ athletic clubs.. well this particualr team, which won the brasilian championship this season, got its start as a group of missionaries who went from town to town, spreading the Word, and playing a match with the locals.. because of the religious aspect they chose the name corinthians, which they use to this day..
