You read the headline, and the picture above tells you all you need to know. Fans of the Colombian soccer team Cucuta Deportivo brought in a coffin to General Santander Stadium for a match Sunday between Deportivo and Envigado. The story, which comes to us from Colombia Reports via Dirty Tackle, says 17-year-old hardcore fan Cristofer Alexander Jacome was murdered while playing soccer in his local neighborhood. Jacome was part of the fan group Barra del Indio that’s supposedly known for its crazy antics at soccer matches. After seeing what they did, I don’t dispute the dedication and insanity of this group.
Security obviously failed miserably by letting the coffin through the gates, but then again would you want to be the one telling a group who just raided a morgue for a body that they can’t enter the stadium? Neither would I.
Honestly, we have lots of stories that fall under the umbrella of “crazy fans” but this has to be the absolute best. Check the others to compare, and here are a few more pics of the coffin in the stadium for your enjoyment:
There is no breed of fan more crazy than the Colombian soccer fan. Ay dios mio.
