Metro- One of the images of the 2014 World Cup was of megafan Fernandes clinging on to his replica trophy while Brazil collapsed to a 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany.
The photograph immediately exploded on social media and Fernandes became something of a celebrity.
It later emerged that he had attended various World Cups since 1990 after leaving his job as a pizza restaurant owner.
With his wife’s permission, the Selecao’s most famous fan went on to dedicate his life to following Brazil.
According to Brazilian outlet Globo, he died after a nine year battle with cancer.
Anyone who watched the World Cup last year should remember this guy. Having the World Cup in Brazil, a place where o Jogo Bonito lives and breathes with every person there, making it to the semi finals and then getting curb stomped by Germany who went on to win the World Cup might as well have been like German soldiers bombing Brazil. Must’ve been devastating for everyone But none more than for Clovis here. That cameras were on him just tears in his eyes gripping that fake world cup trophy as if he was watching loved ones die. Guy just couldn’t let that trophy go but alas, Germany ripped it not out of his arms, but from his heart. R.I.P.
But then again this guy was still alive for all 5 of the Brazil’s world cups so be happy you got at least that, Clovis.
NYDN- Eddie the Head must be proud. Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson frontman says he may have gotten tongue cancer from performing oral sex on women — and rid himself of the illness only a few months ago. Speaking with Jim Norton on Opie Radio Tuesday, the British heavy metal singer said he believes his cancer came from the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV), which led to a golf-ball sized tumor on the base of his tongue. Dickinson, 57, didn’t specifically blame his cancer on cunnlingus, but the HPV virus is more likely to start in someone’s mouth if it’s transmitted by oral sex. Dickinson mentioned Oscar-winning “Wall Street” actor Michael Douglas, who alluded to oral sex as a cause for his own case of throat cancer years ago but directly connected it to his tongue activities. Actor Michael Douglas mentioned oral sex as a cause of his throat cancer years ago, but never made a direct connection. Actor Michael Douglas mentioned oral sex as a cause of his throat cancer years ago, but never made a direct connection. “Everybody went ‘Ha ha ha ha’ (about Douglas), but in actual fact, the thing about the HPV virus is people don’t know a great deal about it,” Dickinson said. “It comes and goes, it comes and goes. For some reason, and nobody knows why, in guys over 40 it can persist … and it’s a cunning little beast.” The singer for Iron Maiden — the legendary metal band that used the monster mascot Eddie the Head on most of its album covers — said he was given an all-clear in May and the cancer never affected his massive singing voice, although he’s “still healing up” after nine weeks of chemotherapy. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States, and nearly one-third of men Dickinson’s age are at a high risk of it, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
This is becoming a god damn problem and i dont like it. Here we are trying to do everything we can for chicks trying to make sure girls cum at night even though its plaguing men over 40 in the form of god damn carcinogenic cancer lumps in their throat and tongues and shit. I mean aside from having an STD i don’t see chicks complaining that BJ’s are giving them cancer. Happened to Michael Douglass giving Catherine Z a Bj and now Bruce Dickinson. And its not like a simple pill that cures that shit. Dude took enough radiation and chemo for 13 full body lethal doses. Thats some violent ass cancer in the face just from eating chicks out. Dude also brings up an interesting point that Lesbians aren’t getting cancer from eating the kitty. What the hells up with that? Are lesbians just more incline to keep up to date with their HPV shots or something? Either way its bullshit. If the stereotype is that parents are divorced because women aren’t sexually satisfied from their husband well guess what, They have a reason now. Sure the excuse that she got ugly is very superficial, but the reason being that her pussy is giving me cancer is as legit as it gets.
