As you know I am in Brasil and the story that has dominated the news over the past week or so is that saga of the soccer superstar Neymar and his transfer from local club Santos to super-club Barcelona.

Sure enough it is an OSU baseball hat!
Obviously Neymar is hoping the Beavers wind the College World Series again...
