River Plate The Jersey Won’t Fall

The drama of River Plate, one of the most victorious and traditional teams in Argentina is a debacle to say the least. Some how the great River Plate literally “stepped on top of the ball” and fell all the way down to the second division. This unfortunate achievement was made possible ONLY by multiple years of terrible play leading up to a “promoción.” The promoción is a game against the second division champions to see who goes to the first division and who goes to the second division. The outcome could be no other, witnessed by Tano Pasman
(Fanatic video tirade by River Plate fan.) and by tens of thousands of supports, River Plate, one of Argentina’s greatest soccer teams lost the promoción to Soccer Club Belgrano. With a solem gloom I am teary eyed to announce, River Plate will now play in the second division next year.

Affection Between Two Peruvian Players

Peruvian TV captured some "curious" display of affection between two members of Peruvian soccer club, Sporting Cristal. During "regular" practice the players Giancarlo Casas and Yoshimar Yotún, embraced, laughed, hugged and even kissed.

The affection was not overlooked by Sporting Cristal directors, and this sort of "group cohesion methods" has been "prohibited by the club;" even though, disciplinary action has not been confirmed by the media. The two have said that they are heterosexual and that they are only very good friends. Needless to say I don't feel this situation will go away anytime soon, as it gives great trash talking ammunition to all rival teams. My only observation is, if Sporting Cristal want's to really unite it's team, they should include the entire group and have one massive hugging section, but maybe that might become a different type of athletic activity for only mature audiences.
