Neymar, This Smoothie’s For You

Today’s yellow and green smoothie is dedicated to Neymar, the Brazilian Futbol Star who suffered a back (and heart) breaking injury in the World Cup Quarterfinal match against Colombia.  I suffered a similar injury myself (fractured cervical vertebrae) 2 years ago, so I can imagine what he must be going through.  Ironically, I sustained the injury training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu .  While the Semifinal Smackdown Germany put on Brazil undoubtedly added insult to injury, I wanted to offer my well-wishes for a quick and full recovery.  A broken back sounds like the end of the world, but as I found out, a positive attitude and top shelf surgeons can get you back on your feet and doing what you love.  On the far off chance this message finds Neymar, and since I don’t think he speaks English, here’s some Portuguese for you.  If the message is  lost in translation, blame Google Translate.

Smoothie de amarelo e verde de hoje é dedicado a Neymar, a estrela brasileira Futbol que sofreu uma volta (e coração) quebrar lesão na partida da Copa do Mundo dos Quartos contra a Colômbia. Sofri uma lesão semelhante a mim mesmo (vértebras cervicais fraturado) 2 anos atrás, então eu posso imaginar o que ele deve estar passando. Ironicamente, eu sustentava a formação lesão Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Enquanto a Semifinal Smackdown Alemanha colocou sobre o Brasil, sem dúvida, insulto acrescentado à injúria, eu queria oferecer aos meus desejos de melhoras para uma recuperação rápida e completa. A parte traseira quebrada soa como o fim do mundo, mas como eu descobri, uma atitude positiva e cirurgiões prateleira de cima que você pode obter de volta em seus pés e fazer o que você ama.
