Odd connections

Have a look at Boca Juniors’ new shirt:
My first reaction was something along the lines of ftw…
Because it’s the Swedish flag!
The story goes that, way back when the team failed to agree on their colours, they went down to the Buenos Aires harbour to let chance decide by choosing the colour of the first ship to come in. And of course, it turned out to be a Swedish ship.
Although I’m not not terribly interested in football the fact that such a small detail can, albeit in a very superficial way, connect two places so far away from each other, has always fascinated me and made even the mere mention of that particular team in the news stand out.
But with this new shirt… they’re looking more Swedish than the Swedish national team! 😀
I won’t compare the actual play, though…
