A career as a writer
Incredibly, Rui Pedro Brás has published several books, and the first published book has the name: O Ninho da Águia (Eagle’s Nest – Eagle is a symbol of Benfica). A seine from that book, retired from Bertrand, follows:
The Nest of the Eagle: Here the Benfica Mystique Revived
Through the prose observer of Rui Pedro Brás and the artistic objective of Pedro Monteiro, O Ninho da Águia is an irrefutable conviction for a unique and unforgettable trip. Throughout these pages, the authors show you the new Stadium of Light as you have never seen it before, revealing to you all its secrets and drawing your attention to details of rare beauty.
Is this why Rui signs his name with Rui Pedro Braz? Is it to not connect with his whole benfiquista past?
In social networks, Rui Pedro Brás (or Braz) also demonstrated his love to Benfica, showing that he was not at all an exempt commentator.
I always liked to see him play…but what really want, is Benfica to win! Always! With or without Aimar (…)
Rui Pedro Braz always had positions in favor of Benfica, demonstrating that there is no exemption in his words, as can be seen in this article of the Artista do Dia blog
The book “O Polvo Encarnado”
Rui Pedro Brás is mentioned in the book “O Polvo Encarnado” as a “Cartilheiro” at the service of Benfica. In the book Rui Pedro Brás is in the category: Journalists and pseudo-exempt commentators who, not receiving the “cartilha” itself, received notes issued by the club regularly.
