Osvaldo e Negueba se recuperam aos poucos pra voltar ao time Aos poucos, Osvaldo vai se livrando das dores e avança em sua recuperação.
Roni e Caramelo são apresentados no clube oficialmente "Estar jogando ao lado de Luis Fabiano e Lúcio... Estou realizando esse sonho."
Here in Brazil, football (soccer for the North-Americans) is a religion. Supporting a club is not only a sport, it's a passion for life, it's adrenalin, it's heart, it's love/hate, it's actually a sort of religion. No wonder we have so many problems with fights and even deaths among the most fanatic supporters, the so-called hooligans (UK), ultras (Italy), barrabravas (Argentina) or torcidas organizadas (Brazil), whatever you call them.
But there's something else, something that we can't even define, something that makes us go to every match, scream like insane people, come back home and sit down on a computer to write about that in the internet. We actually ARE like that, we live and breath this passion.
But it's not an ordinary love, it's something stronger for the club of our hearts, São Paulo F.C. Our club is the owner of the biggest private stadium of the world (the biggest ones are not owned by an specific club), the third biggest crowd of supporters in Brazil and it has the most glorious history in Brazilian football history.
Because of this passion we founded Dragões da Real back in june of 1984. Dragões da Real is a group of fanatic supporters that follow SPFC wherever they go, whenever they are playing. We have around 13,000 fanatic members (database from 2005) with personal IDs to be identified as Dragões da Real members in the stadium.
In the stadium we always have big and giant flags, colorful smoke, a giant SPFC uniform and of course a lot of noise from our drums (we have around 30 drum kits of all kind).
Since 2000 we also have our own Escola de Samba (Samba School) to go to the annual parade in the Brazilian Carnival.
Just in case you don't know, São Paulo F.C. was founded back in the 1930s and it was world champion, three times Libertadores champion, three times champion in Brazil and tons of times champion in the São Paulo state. Our stadium Morumbi is a 100,000 people place and our anthem is one of the most beautiful in the country. Also, the amount of São Paulo F.C. supporters is the third biggest in the whole country and in the latest Official Confederation Research they have realized we have around 12 millions supporters all over the country.
DRAGÕES DA REAL SAMBA ACADEMY
The Brazilian Carnival is one of the most important national events since the last century. Carnival and football are sort of Brazilian institutions. So Dragões da Real, the group of supporters of São Paulo FC, decided to create its own Samba School ("Escola de Samba") in 1999.
After months of planning, in March 17th, 2000, Dragões da Real Samba School was founded with a very small budget but the greatest will to make this dream come true. There was no place for the rehearsals and practising so everything was done in the streets, in front of the Dragões da Real office.
Then we had this fantastic help from Lavapés, the oldest Samba School in São Paulo. They let us use their big saloon and helped us with the first days of the new Samba School. Also Torcida Independente (another group of São Paulo FC supporters) were extremely helpful back then.
With all this help and the passion of Dragões da Real members, we were the winners in the first carnival in 2001, the very first time we were in the parade. We were in Division 4 (only for newcomers) and then we went to Division 3.
In 2003 and in 2004 Dragões da Real won again and went up two divisions in the league. We are not aware about any other Samba School "climbed" divisions so quickly after the foundation. We're the only one!!!
Nowadays Dragões figures in the Division 1 of the Brazilian Carnival and the parade is internationally live broadcasted in the major TV stations in South-America and also on CNN.
