One of the internet’s favorite meme victims has been Neymar da Silva Junior. This Brazilian soccer player was made fun of for the overdramatic way he would fall and roll around the ground. Even though Brazil has now been eliminated from the World Cup tournament, these Neymar Jr. memes still keep circulating around the internet. And here are just a few of the best ones… ????

After watching Neymar Jr. fall onto the ground numerous times, people on the internet began to suggest that he should use a baby walker to help keep him on his feet.

As a form of comparison, some people dug up older videos that visually mimicked Neymar Jr.’s dramatic fall.

The ball didn’t even touch the goat. Lol

If Neymar Jr. were to have a family reunion, it would look a little something like this:

Considering how often Neymar Jr. would fall during his team’s World Cup matches, people figured that this is what his training looked like:

Now this is the most intense soccer training I’ve ever seen.

If there’s one way Neymar Jr. would spend his hot summers, it would be by rolling into the pool like this:

He is a roll master.

And if you could guess which animal Neymar Jr. is in this video, which one would it be?

I’m just going to take a wild guess and say that he’s the mouse rolling on the floor in this video.

Now, instead of teaching their dogs to roll over, people are just teaching their pets to “do the Neymar.”

Before you know it, everyone’s dogs will be trained to “do the Neymar.”

In case you didn’t already know, Neymar Jr. once made an appearance on the show The Simpsons.

Neymar Jr. has to add this role onto his IMBD.

One person on the internet created an entire montage of different items, animals and people rolling on the ground. And of course Neymar Jr. was included in there.

Question is, who did it better?

If there’s anything people have learned after watching Neymar Jr. in the World Cup, it’s that he’s quite fragile.

Note to self: Be very careful when you’re around Neymar Jr.

To help prevent Neymar Jr. from falling again, some people are holding him up with pieces of tape.

I hope those pieces of tape are supportive enough.

This Neymar Jr. meme has gone so viral, that it’s now become a new type of challenge.

Now you can expect too see the Neymar challenge all across the internet.

Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive For Covid-19 As Europe Faces Relentless Second Wave

Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive For Covid-19 As Europe Faces Relentless Second Wave

Europe is facing a growing second wave of infections from Covid-19. As the virus beings to spread across the continent again, countries are bringing back restrictions to protect the health of their citizens. Cristiano Ronaldo, famed soccer player, is the latest celebrity in Europe to fall victim to the virus.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest celebrity to contract Covid-19 as a second wave sweeps across Europe.

Countries throughout Europe are experiencing fresh spikes in Covid-19 cases. In the U.K., the number of cases has quadrupled. The number of cases there are now higher than they were in March when the country went on lockdown. However, according to reports, countries in Europe are trying localized restrictions to prevent new nationwide shutdowns in response to the second wave.

European soccer leagues were among the first sports in the world to resume activities.

The various European soccer leagues resumed practices and games in early June with some restrictions and new protocols to limit the spread of the virus within the sport. One of the first things put in place to protect the players was a staggered training schedule to limit the amount of contact between teammates.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was released from national team duties after a positive test for COVID-19; he will not face Sweden. The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation,” read a statement from the team. “Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol. The game, counting for the qualification phase of the League of Nations, is scheduled for Wednesday in Alvalade.”

Fans have a lot of faith that Covid-19 doesn’t stand a chance in Ronaldo’s body.

Soccer fans were so excited to see the sport come back. It is a good release and escape from reality, which is something we all desperately need nowadays. Losing one of the greatest players of the game is pretty devastating. One of the greatest things about sports is being able to watch the best truly perform, even if they are on the opposing team and delivering you a loss.

People are ready to see the man come back in better form than he left.

Sure, Ronaldo will be back to play soccer for the fans. However, there is a lot that we still don’t know about the long-term impact of contracting Covid-19.

Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez confirmed in July that he was dealing with heart inflammation. The issue caused him to miss some of the restarted, abridged season. The inflammation was because of a Covid diagnosis earlier in the year. Two months later, Rodriguez was cleared by doctors to start walking and partaking in other physical activity because of his heart condition.

Some sports fans are sounding a small alarm to let people know that they should not base their own health decision on Ronaldo’s outcome.

A lot of high-profile people have contracted Covid-19. The ones with the best health insurance and healthcare have come out of their Covid diagnoses with good results. President Donald Trump recently made remarks telling people not to fear Covid after his infection prompting responses from scientists and doctors rebuking his claims.

Covid-19 is far from over. The world is bracing for a second wave, which could be deadlier than the first. Instances of re-infections are climbing with the first reported case in the U.S. happening in Nevada. The second infections have been worse than the first. Be careful. Stay vigilant. Wear a mask to protect your family and friends.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Blames Indigenous Tribes For Amazon Fires

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Blames Indigenous Tribes For Amazon Fires

President Jair Bolsonaro is blaming the indigenous community for the fires that raged in the Amazon. The fires set off international outrage as the rainforest faced unprecedented destruction by out of control fires. President Bolsonaro went against the rest of the international community during a speech to the U.N.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro wants the United Nations to know that indigenous people were responsible for the Amazon fires.

In a remote session opening the U.N. General Assembly, President Bolsonaro spoke at length about the indigenous communities starting the fires. He also used the speech to speak out against the criticism his administration is receiving over his environmental policies and his response to Covid. Brazil is currently the second most infected country in the world with the second highest death rate.

The Amazon has experienced increased fires since President Bolsonaro took office.

For the first seven months of 2020, 13,000 sq. km. (5,019 sq. miles) of the Brazilian rainforest have burned. This year saw the second-highest level of fires on a global scale with fires raging across the Amazon, Australia, and the West Coast of the U.S.

President Bolsonaro openly contradicted expert findings to fit his narrative.

President Bolsonaro claims that the humidity of the forest contains the fires. According to President Bolsonaro’s speech, fires in the Amazon only happen in certain areas because of how well the humidity can keep the fires in check.

“The fires practically occur in the same places, on the east side of the forest, where peasants and Indians burn their fields in already deforested areas,” Bolsonaro said.

President Bolsonaro’s speech touches on the environmental record his administration is known for.

The Bolsonaro administration has made dismantling environmental and indigenous rights since taking power. The administration has worked to limit the amount of land available to indigenous people and to open up Amazonian rainforest to miners, loggers, farmers, developers, and other uses that are damaging and contributing to the fires. Deforestation by these industries are largely to blame for the out-of-control wildfires that burned for a very long time in the Brazilian Amazon.

Activists are getting ready to fight for the indigenous community and the rainforest.

“We must denounce this political catastrophe that destroys the environment and our future,” Sonia Guajajara, head of Brazil’s main Indigenous umbrella organization, to NBC News.
