The World Cup not only features the best soccer in the world, it also has the craziest fans in the world.
Wearing bizarre and sometimes jaw-dropping outfits, along with body paint the colors of their countries, seem like prerequisites for attending the World Cup. It sort of feels like the Mardi Gras of sports.
Fans in Russia showed up looking like Pope Francis, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro. Three wild and crazy guys came dressed in pineapple suits. And there was one fan that looked like a bowling pin with the World Cup trophy emblazoned on the top.
Crazy? Yes, and funny, too. Relish the memories…
