Me, Katie, and Max. We decided to grab a beer from a bar nearby to enjoy before we went in to the game. We ordered 3 Imperials and 1 Pilsen. All 4 were given to us in the six-pack plastic rings. You can see the white Pilsen can peeking through the crack.
The team was lead out onto the field by their mascot, the purple dragon in the center of the picture. It looks very childish, like the Costarican version of Barney! Apparently a few years back a different mascot was made that was more masculine and fierce. The fans didn't like it.
The president-elect, who was elected Feb 7th, was at the game!! Her name is Laura Chinchilla. She walked like 50ft infront of us!! She is in the center of the picture with the brown hair blowing in the wind. She is Costa Rica's first female president.
I saved the best for last....Saprissa's number 1 fan, La Abuelita (little grandmother). She provided constant entertainment for us. She marched up and down behind the fence, and right in front of us, blowing this horn. I somehow got this amazing pic of her. She blew here horn, chanted, and yelled at the players to tell them what to do. She was all decked out in purple to support her team. And she had candy in her fanny pack. She kept the security guard happy with a few pieces. Apparently she is well know. My host family knew about here when I showed them this picture.
