Rex Ryan in Brazil to watch U.S. team

Say this for Rex Ryan: He takes cool vacations.

One year removed from a trip to Pamplona, Spain, where he participated in the celebrated running of the bulls, the New York Jets' coach is vacationing in Brazil to check out the World Cup. Ryan was in Brazil for Sunday's United States-Portugal match. Not many NFL coaches are recognized around the world, but a picture of Ryan showed up on Twitter, confirming his whereabouts. Looks like he has pretty good seats, too.

Ryan got a chance to meet the Portuguese national team during their recent training sessions at the Jets' facility in Florham Park, New Jersey, but his game-day attire confirms his rooting interest. You might say he's a true patriot -- small P, that is.
