  2. Dear Shahan,

    I´m a true fan of your blog. Awesome content! The old magazines just blew my mind. I´m a football commentator for DAZN in Brazil (previously spent 13 years with ESPN) and I also collect lots of football stuff, mostly books and magazines.

    I´m the author of 1981 - O Ano Rubro Negro, on Zico´s Flamengo that reached glory in Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup.

    If I can help you with anything in Brazil, just let me know.
