El superclásico

Today was the big game between Boca and River, the Superclásico.

I'm very meta. Rather than watching the game, I watched people watch the game. It's always a kick to walk around the city during big matches and see every bar and cafe with a television positively packed -- very often standing room only.

And then there are the spillover crowds.

Some people can't even fit into the bar. Or maybe they don't want to spend the money. The cafe across the street from the following photo had a sign warning patrons that the minimum consumption during the game was 5 pesos -- that's nearly 2 U.S. dollars!
