Pics of the Day: Futboooooooool!!!!!!!
September 9th, 2011
We have the great fortune of being a 5 minute walk from the local futbol stadium, so we love to attend the games with our guests. You haven’t truly experienced Colombia until you’ve seen their futbol fans in action. Their spirit and dedication puts all fans in the United States to shame. Football fans sport body paint. Futbol fans show their commitment with tattoos. BIG ONES.
This past Sunday we went to one of the first futbol games of the season; check out our pictures below to get an idea of what it’s like to attend a game with the fanaticos!
These giant police horses are a fixture at every futbol game. We secretly want to become mounted policemen just to have one of these gorgeous creatures to call our own.
These peace-keeping Robocops can also be found at every soccer game. Here they are making sure the Cali fans are behaving themselves.
We sat with the "fanaticos" on the northern side of the stadium. The view of the valley from the stadium is gorgeous.
Our fellow "fanaticos" sang and danced for the duration of the game. They're a fun bunch, but when their team scores a goal, run for cover!
