Why Atletico? I asked.
“Because Falcao plays there.”
David is Colombian. I met him as he was running home to watch Colombia-Urugway WC qualifier. He came to Montreal to study Art and Literature at Lassale college. He’s hoping to get into Concordia’s art program next year. We had a short rant about Real Madrid as he was unhappy that Real gets all the attention while ‘not many people know about Atletico.’ But Atletico is doing just fine, winning 2012 Europa Super cup just a few weeks ago. It was very entertaining to watch as they demolished Chelsea, while Radamel Falcao García Zárate, simply know as Falcao, scored 3 goals.
