Catching a Soccer Game
Soccer is big in Colombia, like it is pretty much anywhere else (except in the US). Cali has two professional teams, Deportivo Cali and América. Just like folks from New York (with the Mets and Yankees), you are either a Cali fan or an América fan, NOT both. I am an incha (fan) of AMERICA! Only a couple of times a year do the two Cali-based teams play each other. These Clasicos are a heated rivalry with one side of the stadium wearing red for América and the other green for Cali. Unfortunately, América lost today 2-1.
