Hardcore Bosnians On Tour

Hardcore Bosnians On Tour

I like Bosnians. Our firm has a number of Bosnian clients and nicer, harder working people you may never meet. My business banker is Bosnian. (Hi, Edin!) But the country's soccer fans are pretty intense - not that it's unusual for the sport.

There were thousands of them wrapped in the flag, literally and figuratively, at the game Monday. I'd never seen the flag before and it's pretty cool, an original design. A group of them were out in the bleachers (top photo) behind a somewhat intimidating banner. When the game was almost over several of them lit traffic flares, astonishing conduct at an American sporting event. I was surprised the police didn't rush them but the flares went out soon enough.

I can't recall seeing the flag before. It does draw one's attention.

Yes, hardcore fans lead to hooliganism.

scene typique d'un match de football en europe, mais c'est vrai que l'on ne voit pas ca dans les sports US

It looks like the car is painted like the flag.

The flag has an unusual feature of the stars running off the border, rather than being spaced to be complete inside the top and bottom edges. I wonder why that is.

Soccer fans are a breed unto themselves. Though I know some Red Sox fans who could hold their own, I suspect....

Apart from the austerity and the more and more difficult life in this country, Portuguese are hysterical today because our team won Sweden yesterday, therefore we'll be participating in the Soccer World Championship in Rio de Janeiro.
Karl Marx said "Religion is the opium of the people"... well, soccer is either.
