What are we in? Can we or can't we?
Theme of the week: the Superfinal.
Well, there's almost nothing missing anymore. It seems that, finally, the Copa Libertadores de America Superfinal is going to be played, thanks to cosmos, in a serious country. A serious country that can ensure that the most important sporting event in Argentine history (and is sure to be in the top 3 of the most important in America) takes place without unforeseen violence and those animaladas committed by the Sudacas who live under Ecuador. Of course, this advanced, serious and rational nation, asked the Argentine authorities to send troops because they are not sure of power with such passion. What are we in? Can they or can't they? Who will pay the costs of sending the security delegation to Spain? Who's going to pay for the coffee in Barajas? Why do we have to take care of something they told us we couldn't do? All these questions (mostly rhetorical, of course), try to unravel a concept that if we allow it to take root can be more harmful than we think. Argentines can. Actually, we do. A week earlier, in La Boca, we did it. We already spilled oceans of ink (or bit, actually), analyzing responsibilities, thinking about what happened and why was not avoided, what we did wrong, etc. It seems appropriate to remember that just putting a fence (as it gets EVERY TIME you play River local, LESS AND LESS this) this issue was avoided. So, on spilled milk, we have two options left: we reflect or indignant. We think what forces are operating or are convinced (and this is the risk we are running and which I think it is essential to unlock before it's too late) that we are a barbarian's sleeve that we can't even organize a fobal party. When a baby, when he is little, is insisted that he can't do something, most likely, he can't seriously in the end. We are no longer any little ones, but there are some who insist on treating us as such. Yes, we can. What is needed is to have the conviction, the desire and, of course, the appropriate and honest officials. Which is not a little.
