When it comes to futbol (soccer) there are no political lines, economic classes or racism.
GOL – Goal, is the Americans score!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL – Goal if the Ticos score
Barras y Estrellas – Stars and Stripes in reference to the US team
Birra – Beer
Cerveza – Beer
Imperial – Beer
La Sele – Costa Rica’s national team (if they win)
If the Ticos lose:
Come Huevos – and not for eating chicken eggs
Mama Gallos – no reference to the Mexican restaurant
Hijueputas – Spanish-language slang contraction: “Son of a bitches”
Gringos – The US team, win or lose
Que Pelada – what an ass whooping
Por dicha! – thank goodness (they freaking won, would have been embarrassing to lose after all the bs we’ve been spouting)
