Newbie Goes To Her First Match, El Superclasico No Less

The luck some people have: American traveling through Buenos Aires is comp'd two tickets to the River Plate v. Boca Juniors match played a week and a half ago. The fortunate soul in question is Kristen Pettit, Will Leitch's book editor. Thus a bird's eye view of the goings ons in River's Monumental stadium on Leitch's Deadspin blog.

Money quote:
"You'll love it," our host told us, his eyes alight. "Just don't wear any jewelry. Or carry a bag. Or say anything that will make anyone angry. Or make eye contact. And don't, for any reason, stray out of our sight."
So now you know, when someone in Buenos Aires asks you if you've ever attended a live match before, for the love of god, say no. You just might end up at the Superclasico.
