Soy Del Verde.........I'm from Green....
I'm not a huge soccer fan but I have always wanted to check out a South American soccer game. You'll always hear how crazy the South American fans can be at soccer stadiums, all of us wanted to go to a game. Our Colombian friend, hooked us up with tickets to go watch the Medellins soccer team: Atl├ętico Nacional
That day, they were playing one of their big rivals, Bogota Los Millonarios.   We sat on the southside of the stadium, where all the diehard fans are located.

 To get through we had to fight our way through a little mosh pit, pushing our way through the hall to get to our seats. Everyone on the stands was wearing green and white. There were a few brawls that broke out, people smoking weed, confetti's raining everywhere, fireworks were going out.  The fans tried to threw bottles, tomatos, anything when a Millionarios player was doing a corner kick.  There was a huge fence with barb wires and cops were using plastic shields to protect the Millionarios player doing a corner kick. They do not serve alcohol inside the soccer stadium,  hmmmmm.. I wonder why?  LOL  It was so crazy to see people chanting, cheering, singing the Nacional songs throughout the whole game.  Unfortunately, the Nacional's fell to Millonarios 3-2. 
It was an awesome experience to go to a Colombia soccer game!
