There is no dancing around it.  This thing looks like one of those Pokemon monsters.  GOTTA CATCH’EM ALL!!!

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the 2014 FIFA World Cup began last week in Brazil.  Yesterday, John Brooks scored the winning goal to put the United States ahead of Ghana 2-1.  I’m not that big of a soccer fan.  In fact, the last time I attended a soccer game was to see the Hershey Wildcats play.  They when defunct in 2001.

If you’ve been watching the World Cup this year, I’ve bet you’ve seen this little guy.  This is Fuleco.  Its the official mascot of the 2014 World Cup.  Fuleco is an armadillo and his name is a combination of the words “football” and “ecology”.  The World Cup has a whole slew on pins that you can add to your collection.  Some are rarer than others.  This Fuleco pin is very common and can easily be found for under $10.00.
