Yes, I know about the B part, my mom is a River fan too, although not like this guy. My family watched the match and then we all saw the coverage on
the news about the problems with the fans.
The referee was threatened and had to call a penalty or he would get killed, it was on the news yesterday too because the man identified the guys who
threatened him. The stadium was closed and all but it's going to get reopened so there's no punishment at all, I guess.
There were other teams that went down a category at the same time but they weren't on the news that much, mostly because those riots weren't as bad as
the River one.
Soccer (futbol here) usually causes problems here, there are a lot of fights between fans and sometimes there are deaths too.
It's really sad
But in this video here, the man isn't hurting anyone, he's just sitting at home watching the match. And yes, his vocabulary is very rude and he's
overreacting, but that's what makes it funny to me (It's like when you see a video of yourself when you were younger doing something that seemed like
a good idea at the time or just being irrational, after a couple of months or years you can laugh about it). Not at first of course, I was totally
terrified of him but it's been repeated so much on the local news here and the man has given interviews and all, that I started seeing the funny side
