Are you going to tell is you don't root for San Lorenzo?
I have concerns...
I had to Google San Lorenzo . . . . This is the first website that come up. I'm now a fan!
Well, be careful if you go to a game. It's in a pretty sketchy Villa Miseria ( what it sounds like) called bajo Flores and not in Almagro. Mrs geez and I went there last time we were down there and our guide told us things like ' no pictures of locals they are often drug dealers' .
The next morning the news was full of accounts of 7 murders that night between Argentine and Paraguayan gangs right outside the stadium.
The Pope stopped going to games when he was archbishop of Buenos Aires - too dangerous.
The original stadium was in middle class Boedo, and fans are still mostly from there. The Boedo stadium was taken from the leftist leaning club by the juntas and used as an internment camp where people 'disappeared'. Then the land was sold to the Carefour chain ( French Fred Meyers).
The club says the seizure was illegal and is sueing Carefour to get the land back for a new stadium. They probably will get the land back eventually.The Congress passed laws to enable it.
I have a San Lorenzo t-shirt that says Boedo on it.
