tuanis-maeTo enjoy the game even more tonight we’ve made a list of “Tico Talk”, words that can be heard on television, radio, the nearest bar and living room couch.

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)

Please use the comment section below to add “your” words to the list.
