Ecuador close to 2006 World Cup

with 2 comments

I guess it’s time for me to post something completely unrelated to TS… Last saturday, Ecuador’s soccer team beat Argentina 2-0, which puts us really close to the World Cup clasification for the second time in our history (first time was in Korea-Japan 2002). As you can imagine, soccer is huge in South America and for Ecuador this could become a really big achievement that goes beyond plain sports, but a really good excuse to bring people together in a country where poverty and political corruption have taken away much of people’s hope. Then of course it’s a second good excuse for drinking and partying in the streets, too. BTW, I live in Ecuador, just in case you were wondering ;).
