A World Cup Cover…

I’m a big sports fan and my absolutely favorite sporting event is the World Cup. I’m totally addicted. One of the joys of self-employment is getting to watch as many games as I want, which for me was almost every match. And I almost had a NYer cover about it as well.

My thought was that in Brazil they’ll be playing soccer in the middle of the Amazon, that would make for a cool cover. Or hot. Or not… it was rejected. Even tho the World Cup was about to start that week I thought I’d submit one more image.

Tho there’s not much in the way of an idea here the magazine gave it a go. Goooooooooaaaaalllllllll!.

But no, my cover received the equivalent of a red card, immediate dismissal. The Economist had a somewhat similar cover already out that week. That’s publishing.
