Joy and Sadness: Disaster in Racing, Atlanta Unstoppable, and Blooper…

So the newest first division season began in Argentina last week, and although as far as Racing is concerned the actual futbol playing is secondary, I have to admit that the team that had been put together for this season was particularly inspiring, and while winning isnt the priority, its also not that bad.

The main hope of this Racing is a Colombian player called Giovani Moreno, who plays futbol in a manner so filled with fantasy and joy, its something us talent starved Racing fans have never really seen! He can be called, without much argument, the best player in Argentine futbol today. Any doubts, please see for yourselves:

Long story short, first game of the season, Racing wins away against All Boys 1-0, life is good. Right? Wrong. Knee injury, surgery needed, out for 6-8 months. I could cry…

This is just the icing on the cake of a pre-season marked not only by several important injuries, but also the death of Racings massage therapist, killed by lightning during practice!

Now Im a pretty rational person, but all this really makes me think that it is time to finally find the fucking cats buried under Racings field so that this voodoo might one day end. (What the fuck? Click here, scroll down to the last Youtube video, there is even a documentary about black magic against Racing!)

The smile of the day, if one was possible in the face of such a world shaking tragedy, would be this one. One of the most spectacular referee/linesman mistakes ever. Lucky it was in Costa Rica and not somewhere else, they might not have survived it…

As tragic as the developments in Racing might be, Atlanta on the other hand is at least marching apparently non-stop to second division! 17 games remaining, 10 points ahead of the second placed team, winning every game. The decade long march through the abyss of third division seems to be nearing its end…

The last two games:
