Remember the staircase into the new World Cup stadium in São Paulo that is made out of scaffolding and looks like it could fall down at any second? It hasn’t fallen down (yet), but it sure does wobble a lot:
There’s a separate staircase a short distance away, but it’s for VIPs so most fans can’t use it.
That’s about as good a metaphor for Brazil’s World Cup stadium spree as any. Unless it’s the $300 million, 42,000-seat stadium they built in a city with no pro soccer team and where one-quarter of the population has no running water. That’s pretty good too.
