Venezuela beats Uruguay in soccer, bizarre!

April 1, 2004

For almost two years I have been trying to explain to you what is happening in Venezuela. Tonight, the Venezuelan soccer team,. a country with no soccer tradition, beat Uruguay, a country with a great soccer tradition, by 3-0 in the Montevideo soccer stadium. The match was part of the World Cup qualifying process. As if this was not enough, the Venezuelans played a very good game, solid in defense and offense, this was no fluke. The victory is likely to be the most significamt victory in the country’s short soccer history.

Now, this is really, really hard to explain, politics may be easier.
