A bola rola

The last time Inter confronted Boca Juniors, in 2005, I was in Bombonera in Buenos Aires. Although I was thrilled to watch my team in one of the world’s most famous venues—for a variation of the classic Brasil x Argentina grudge match to boot— for personal safety I had to stifle my cheers when Inter scored, just as I stifled my disappointment when Boca planted the next four goals. Ouch. That memory made tonight’s 2x0 victory on home turf arguably sweeter than the recent GreNal. Spectacular. Draped in red, I have attended the last 4 home games, chanted and clapped wildly, and left celebrating victory each time.

I'll
try to catch you up on my excursion to rural Butiá and my favorite new discoveries around town over the weekend.
