Colombia-Paraguay coin flip proves Copa America Centenario is cursed

This is it. Definitive proof that Copa America Centenario has been cursed by the football gods for being an orgy of greed and incompetence.

Prior to Colombia’s 2-1 win over a 10-man Paraguay, there was the coin toss. And on the first attempt, something unusual happened: the coin landed on its edge. IT LANDED ON ITS EDGE.

The match officials and captains had a giggle about it, but this was surely the nervous laughter of men frightened to their core by the supernatural occurrence they just witnessed with their own eyes.

This is what happens when you charge $40 for parking, price fans out of being able to fill the stadiums, disrespect national anthems, and have kitmakers who can’t even spell their partner countries names’ right. This is a warning! The tournament will be smited for these egregious offenses! Repent! REPENT!

    Both of my kids play soccer. But we have the misfortune (for a number of reasons) of living in New Jersey. That means our choices are the ridiculously expensive quarter finals or the outrageously expensive finals. Which means we don’t get to go at all. It would be cheaper to fly to Brazil for the Olympics. Add that to poor Chile being screwed out of enjoying their win last year the way they should in this desperate cash-grab, and they deserve all the bad luck they get.

    • The Copa America used to be every 2 years, so saying that Chile don’t get to enjoy their win is a little too much.
      If they had just done more like the Budesliga and made the tickets and parking cheap, so that each stadium was filled, this would have been a great tournament, and the other mishaps would be more forgivable.

    I agree, I would LOVE to attend to the games in NJ with my family, but the ticket prices are outrageous.
    Very disappointed to miss the opportunity to see the most beautiful game at its best with a meaningful competition. 😡😡😡
