International Sports Club, one of the two soccer teams here in Porto Alegre, won the Libertadores Championship–one of the most important soccer tournaments among South American teams! Needless to say, it was a pretty big deal.
Whenever something happens in a soccer game, you don’t have to be watching the game to know. Cars in the street honk like crazy and you can hear people celebrating (or mourning). It’s like being on campus for a Gator game, except throughout the whole city. You can only imagine how crazy it was after this game–fireworks, yelling, and honking for hours!
Congratulations, Inter–“Campeão de Tudo!”
