In Argentina , football crosses our lives in every way. Our way of speaking, our metaphors, our phrases made, often come from that sport that is almost a religion. Sometimes, even, without us realizing it. Today we want to tell you about when Chacarita was enlarged.
“Chacarita was enlarged” is a phrase widely used by Argentines to point out that someone suddenly feels more important or powerful than it really is. A comment, an attitude, an act - something makes that person denote an uncommon security in it. And that's when Chacarita is enlarged. But why Chacarita? When exactly was this team enlarged?
There are two versions. The best known indicates that Chacarita was enlarged in 1969, when he came out Metropolitan champion against River after winning him 4 to 1. This is what the Black Fontanarrosa remembered:
Chacarita from 69 was, in short, the dream of the kid. It was that cartoon “Tucho, from canillita to champion” came true, the utopia of mingling among the grand to end winning the final to River with thrashing and dancing, carried out. In short, a shot that, as remembered Fidel Pintos would say, sounded for the side of justice.Roberto Fontanarrosa - Text published in the book No te vayas, champion .
The second version, however, says that the phrase is earlier. According to this, it dates back to May 9, 1948, an afternoon in which Chacarita — with one less player on the field and one injured who did not participate in the game — beat Boca for the fourth round of the championship. They say that journalists from the newspaper Noticias Gráficas, in charge of the headline that feat the next day, chose the phrase “Chacarita was enlarged.” And that's where it all started.
Whatever the origin of the phrase, the truth is that today, when Chacarita is enlarged, there is no need to add anything else.
