La lección de un boleto equivocado

Today is Spanish Friday so this post is in Spanish. If you participated in Spanish Friday on your own blog, leave your link in comments. English translation below!

boleto USA

Esta foto está circulando en las redes sociales – ¿pero qué es? Esta es una foto de boleto de avión, pre-comprado para un jugador de fútbol del equipo estadounidense. CONCACAF compraba los boletos antes del partido, con la suposición errónea que los Estados Unidos van a ganar y ir a las finales en Kansas City. La realidad? El Salvador ganó el partido y ahora ustedes pueden ver que el nombre de un jugador estadounidense (Joe Corona), está tachado, y el nombre de un jugador salvadoreño, (Juan Rodas), está añadido en bolígrafo azul.

A CONCACAF, una lección: No vendas la leche antes de comprar la vaca.

Y a “La Azulita” (equipo Sub 23 de El Salvador) y todos leyendo esto: Crean en ustedes mismos, aunque otros les digan que sus metas no son realistas. Sueñen, trabajan duro y pueden lograrlo. Todo es posible.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]

This photo is circulating on social networks – but what is it? This is a photo of an airline ticket, pre-bought for a player on the US soccer team. CONCACAF bought the tickets before the game, wrongly assuming that the United States would win and go on to the finals in Kansas City. The reality? El Salvador won that game and now you can see that the name of the U.S. player (Joe Corona), has been crossed out. The name of a Salvadoran player (Juan Rodas), has been added in blue ink.

To CONCACAF, a lesson: Don’t sell the milk before you buy the cow. (Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.)

And to “La Azulita” (the Sub 23 team for El Salvador), as well as to everyone reading this: Believe in yourselves, even when others tell you that your goals aren’t realistic. Dream, work hard, and you can achieve it. Anything is possible.

  5. Wow!!!! Que chiste.

    Tracy, viste el partido me imagino! La verdad que ese partido de El Salvador con Honduras me enojo tanto!!! El Salvador comieron 3 goles, de los que me acuerdo, tan facil! Enfrente del marco solo el jugador salvadroeno y el portero. Increible. Jugaron muy bien y se lo mercian. lastima….

    • The game was painful to watch – I was angry, too. El Salvador didn’t play as well as they could have first half, but second half they played amazingly well but the bad reffing on calling all of Honduras’ penalties did them in. Very disappointing!

      Hopefully the Beach Soccer team will do well!
