Bite sized Nightmare The stage was set Brazil, land of wonder and awe. Sambas were danced in celebration of the choosing of the venue and drums were beat to the cries of the millions. Tickets were purchased years in advance and over priced tickets were scavenged for. Stadiums were built and barely finished for the global spectacle. Old team memorabilia was dug up from closets. All other sports come to a halt. The cameras are centered on the eleven grass stained men who fight for their country, all-hoping to crush the competition and claim the golden cup. Expecting to excel and stun the spectators these teams come to the world cup with one goal in mind and that is to win. With tough competitors such as Italy, a powerhouse, England, a strong team with young talent and a great past, and Costa Rica, the underdogs Uruguay hoped to finish with a respectable result and pull out of their group. Superstar Louis Suarez, who plays for Liverpool, a very successful Barclays Premier League team graced the team with his presence leading them to a 2-1 victory over England. Suarez a great contender for future glory was basking in the attention of media. Uruguay had found their superstar to depend on, their lifeline and heart of the team. After missing the first game due to an injury Suarez came back to the second game against Englandwhere he scored a goal to give his country the three points that they so desperately needed, especially with a strong Costa Rican team in their group to contend with. The standards were set high for the Uruguayan star and he knew it. Knowing this he entered the highly anticipated game against the Italian giants. The Italian side was stacked with talent and high hopes for a spot in the next round. However, the Uruguayan side showed no signs of giving up. As the ball floated in the box an Italian player Giorgio Chiellini vies for the ball with the Uruguayan star. Suarez acting extremely unnecessarily bites his arm. Outraged Chiellini shows the referee the bite marks, but the referee turns a blind eye and pushes for the progression of the match. After the controversial game FIFA has come to a consensus and decides that Suarez is to be banned until the end of October of the year 2014 from any football related activities. Why put such a reputation on the line? With such a bright future ahead of him and a starting position on the squad he throws it all away in a matter of minutes. It seems as if his instinct for such uncommon behavior has gotten the best of this young star.
