Being in “pampa y la via” means not having money, or being a shot, someone without financial resources. Although it is common to hear this phrase, most Argentines are unaware of its origin.
Its origin dates back more than 100 years ago, when the Hippodrome was in the property that currently occupies the stadium of the River Plate club. For the unlucky punters who had lost everything, the institution offered a free train service that reached them to the junction of La Pampa Street with the Mitre railway tracks.
From that place, which was a little more crowded, losers could return to their homes more easily. Did you know the story?
