Please Step Outside http://www.kunc.org/post/want-eat-brazilian-food-world-cup-please-step-outside The stadiums of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil are all different, constructed to reflect the region. Natal's arena has a wavy beach-dune style, while the stadium in Manaus looks like a woven basket.<p>Inside those stadiums, however, you'd never know you're in Brazil. Budweiser is an official beer seller, and Coke has the soda market cornered. Other menu items include hot dogs, cheeseburgers and turkey sandwiches.

He plays in Alabama for the Birmingham Barons, the AA affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.
