How did you get to Boca's shirt?

We all know the history of the Boca shirt and the Swedish boat. But if you go into the note, you're gonna find out something you most probably didn't know.

Since its founding,  Club Atlético Boca Juniors  wore different colors on his shirt. Although there are almost no records, scholars agree that  the first was pink . As expected, his rivals were mocking at the election. Tired of this situation, they changed for a white and black with vertical stripes, then a whole celestial (similar to the current one of  Club Atletico Temperley ), later a whole blue and finally one with white and blue vertical lines. And here comes the juicy story.  Club Almagro  had a very similar shirt. There was no room for both of us. What did they do to settle the issue? The most logical thing: they challenged themselves to a match. They imagine well:  he lost Boca .

After accepting defeat, the question was: and now what colors do we use? This anecdote is a little better known: killed and angry at having to change their identity, they decided to leave it to luck: the president of the club was Juan Rafael Brichetto, who also  worked as an operator of the port . That's why he decided that they would use the colors of the flag of the first ship to pass the next day between dikes one and two. The boat, as we already know, was a Swedish fishing boat.

The importance of a T-shirt

In a first reasoning, it may be thought that something as important as the chromatic identity of one of the most important clubs in the world has emerged  from a random fact  is something, at least, striking. But if we start thinking, isn't it a metaphor for many of life's important things? Isn't it the meddling of chance, more frequent and more defining than we think? For example, let's try to remember how we met our partners. Or how we choose the profession we choose. Or how do we find the house we live in. The leaders of Boca were giving us a lesson they didn't even realize they were giving: let's relax a little and make decisions without so much neurosis. The really important thing is how we play the game . The color of the shirt is almost the least.
