11 July, 2017by Billy Johnson

From outside in complicated to explain but you have to understand the local’s obsession about fútbol.

We don’t really have American football, baseball has a small following and basketball is a minor sport so all the people really have to root for is soccer. It’s the only national sport. It is said that the three most important things in a Costa Rican man’s life are “soccer, women and beer”, but not necessarily in that order.

Some of the ticos says jokingly, “If we win we’ll all get drunk. If we tie we’ll get drunk and if we lose we’ll all drunk.” “La cerveza arregla todo (beer fixes everything).”

May the best team win!
