It is a cold day in Chicago and it is likely to get a lot worse. But we can dream of a warm day or night next year when our national team finally beats Costa Rica in the legendary Ricardo Saprissa stadium, the most difficult stadium in the world for a visiting team. It has to be seen to be believed. The place goes absolutely nuts with everyone singing the songs in unison, with rythmic dancing when the Ticos score. When the American fan bus arrived with police escort on September 5, 2001, thousands of Tico fans erupted in national song, with police cadres holding them back. It was like arriving by limo at the Academy Awards but everyone in sight hates you! Air fares to Costa Rica used to be sky high, but now you can find them as low as $350 or $400. Once you get there costs are not so bad, and there are so many interesting things you will have a great time even if we don't get the result we want.
