The Brazil Loss Hit Close To Home

Watching the Brazil/Germany match was an exciting experience for some of the National Tool Warehouse family!

Although selling tools is our #1 passion…we also like to brag on our family, and boy have we earned our bragging rights!  It’s not every day that you have family members sitting on the front row at the World Cup!

Most of us here in the United States didn’t feel the jarring pain of Brazil losing to Germany in the 2014 World Cup, but those National Tool Warehouse family members that were there felt it big time. After making a temporary move to Brazil earlier this summer, our family members decided attending the World Cup, cheering Brazil on, would be a monumental moment in their lives.  Indeed it was but not in the way they were hoping.

After arriving at the World Cup with the two girls in tow, they enjoyed a typical family picture in front of the stadium.  As you can see, the whole family is all smiles and they even managed to capture a photo bomber on the right.

While we hear the atmosphere was exciting in the stadium, they, along with thousands of other fans that day, ended up feeling the weight of defeat. Even their youngest daughter, who is 5, was an emotional wreck and they found themselves making several headlines after the loss.

The loss was heartbreaking, even for a 5 year old.
