Today’s Pic du Jour, the 173rd (!) straight, was snapped in Cartagena, Colombia, just over a year ago when I joined a large crowd to watch Colombia play a World Cup qualifier against Argentina. Colombia outplayed the favored Argentines to a draw, an important point on their way to tonight’s World Cup quarter-final match against host nation Brazil.
This short-lived celebration came just a few moments before an off-sides call nullified a goal. I’d like to be on that square for tonight’s game.
