Brazilian Teacher Builds a Replica of Soccer Field for Blind Student

Millions of people around the world have been gathered in front of their TVs to watch the World Cup – but for Hélio Surdos’s friend, Carlos, that didn’t seem possible.

Carlos, who is deaf but had normal vision until the age of 14, was diagnosed with Usher syndrome, which has caused him to lose his eyesight over the years.

But with this year’s buzzed-about event held in his home country of Brazil, the 27-year-old, who can only see shapes, was determined to truly enjoy the tournament.

According to the Daily News, after Carlos suggested a unique solution to his problem, Surdos began researching the logistics and exact measurements behind building a replica of a soccer field – and his results have already gone viral.

“We want him to feel the same sensations that [people who can see and hear] feel,” Surdos tells the Daily News.

With his camera recording the much-anticipated moment during the Brazil versus Croatia game, Surdos guided Carlos’ hands over the mini model and described the plays as it was happening live.

And when Brazil made their final goal to win the game, Carlos – sporting his home team’s jersey – joined in the celebration, cheering with his hands in the air and doing a drum roll on his faux field.

The touching moment between teacher and student ends with Carlos signing, as he shows his joy for being able to “watch” the game and celebrate Brazil’s victory.

“When I posted the video, I was aiming to show that for everything in life there is a solution, so that other interpreters [can] use this with their friends or deaf and blind clients,” Surdos says.

According to Surdos, Carlos is using his new board for every event, and while he can’t guide him during every game, he promises to be there for all of Brazil’s matches.

If there’s one thing we love about the World Cup, it’s spontaneous displays of patriotism when the U.S. wins a match.

But if there are two things we love about the World Cup, it’s spontaneous displays of patriotism and the image of handsome, athletic men celebrating their sporting accomplishments with sweaty displays of physical affection.

Luckily, many of the players in the World Cup come from countries where there isn’t a stigma against male friends exchanging emotional PDA. We’ve collected the 13 best images of such displays from the first week of the World Cup, because … isn’t it obvious?

VH1 Vintage: Gabrielle Union Always Wanted To Date A Player

In addition to Being Mary Jane and starring in films like Think Like A Man Too (out Friday), Gabrielle Union somehow finds time to show up to NBA games on the regular. It helps that she’s engaged to Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, but our girl has always been athletic. Back in 2007 she was interested in dating dudes in the sports world, but not necessarily the one who eventually put a ring on it (sorry, D!).

In this vintage interview, VH1 caught up with Ms. Union on the carpet for Black Girls Rock in 2007. Considering she’s beautiful and talented, she could likely snag any available man she wants. So who was her big crush back in the day? Herman Edwards, former coach of the Kansas City Chiefs…

Ahem, that’s former Philadelphia Eagles star and current ESPN football analyst Herman Edwards. But isn’t he a little old for her? “I don’t even know, I don’t care. He’s well preserved,” she explained. As a Jets fan, I can say Gab certainly knows how to pick ‘em. Check out the vintage clip above and decide for yourself whether or not D. Wade should adopt some of his own “Hermisms” in the bedroom to keep his lady happy.
