I wrote to Bono reporting the latest news...

Catchy subject uh?

Now serious, after thinking about the best place to post this I decided that it could fit in here...because itīs U2 related, for sure.

I wrote to Cecilia, asking her to report to Bono and the boys about the new World Cup champion...which is my beloved country, Brasil...or Brazil for you . Because I know how much they enjoy football (or soccer, whatever)

She wrote me back a few hours later saying in her caractheristic blue type letters "Will pass it on to Bono when he returns from his holiday."

So...Iīm hoping he gets my message this time around. What do you think? Am I hopeless case or what?

Subject: A special request


Hello Cecilia,

My name is Maria Teresa and Iīm from Brazil. Iīve loved U2 since the first time I saw them playing so passionately at the Live Aid concert in 1985. They have been an important part of my life throughout all these years.

I know they love football (or soccer). When they came to Brazil for the first time in 1998 Bono adressed the crowd in the last Popmart concert in São Paulo, and asked for a favour...He wanted Brazil to win the World Cup for Ireland, thatīs what he said, maybe because Ireland did not qualified at that time.

So now I would like to ask you for a favour as well. Please report them, and especially Bono, that Brazil is now the World Cup champion again, for the fifth time in the history of the world championship. I dare think he and all of them might like the news. And please tell Bono that Brazilian U2 fans didnīt forget about his request and that we apologize for this delay of 4 years ;-) It didnīt work at that time but it worked now.

Thatīs it.

Thanks in advance

Regards
Maria Teresa M.da Rosa
Brasil

Congratulations Maria...I believe Bono will read it, and I believe that you will get your response from Bono. I'll be looking forward to hearing what happens. Yes, your a hopeless case, but we love you.

Chris

Yay Follower! I do believe that Cecilia will give Bono the message. She is very devoted to the fans. If it wasn't for her being so kind, I would have never got to my first U2 concerts during the Love Town tour!
Back in the day of snail mail I wrote to her with a request of phone numbers of ticket agencies in Australia and she faxed them to me at work!

Yep, Cecelia definitely rocks!

My mom emailed her from time to time with questions back during Popmart and prior, and she was always very, very nice.

Thank you all...nice feedback, LOL. I confess I had a few requests from my people...U2 friends and members of local lists. First I thought it wouldnīt be a good idea, but then I started thinking...what the hell, if somebody has to do it so itīs better be me

If I get any response from him Iīll let you know. Next time I might remember him of another thing...not a request this time but a promise he made in that same concert...that they wouldnīt forget about us.

Cute, but don't you think the guys might have already known who won the World Cup when it happened? It was worldwide headline news.

Sure they know Angel...who doesnīt in planet Earth? But I couldnīt find a better way to remind him of his request. That was my main intention...and of course I tried to say a funny thing...and couldnīt help bragging about it a little

awww, very sweet Maria Teresa!
Maybe Bono wore Marina's jersey last Sunday and gave Brasil a little bit of luck.

Oh, that famous jersey he gently "stole" from our friend Marina, LOL...yes, maybe. But he definitely needs a new one now, cause that one is out of fashion...it has only 3 stars. And we have 5 now.

Btw....pics. Thanks Carrie

Hey now stop dissing my jersey, that jersey is very good luck. I bought one just like it on ebay to replace it, wore it, and guess what we won again sooo Besides the nike jerseys are plain and dull, long live umbro.

LOL on another note though it would be quite nice to think that maybe he did, but uhm the jersey is too small for him (which should be the first sign for him to realize it wasn't a gift), if he were to even attempt to put it on it would a.) rip or b.) he'd look like shitney spears with the added fat hanging out the bottom of the shirt I have a feeling he gave it Eli and now it has a bunch of ice-cream stains, poor jersey

Very nice pics Maria Teresa!
Bono in bubble pants+brazilian football jersey=fatal combination!
Marina, Eli would make a great soccer player, he got the hair!

Normal

Not to burst any bubbles... *POP* but unless Bono is vacationing in a cave, I'm sure he's well aware that Brasil (Brazil) won the World Cup title. As such, I highly doubt this message will be forwarded.

Caves are nice and quite ... maybe he's taken up spelunking.
