Photo subject: Refreshingly worldly, fiery, energetic. When a stodgy, corporate atmosphere pervades your event, call on this brash lad to infuse it with unpredictability and excitement.
Where to find him: Enlivening cynical, nearly comatose suits at a business function, Oozing masculine mystery while seducing women with a rose and a wink on the dance floor, giddily jeering River Plate fans inside a Buenos Aires bar.
Team: Boca Juniors, winner of 23 Argentine league titles and a world record — shared with AC Milan — 18 international trophies. The powerhouse controls the all-time series against their eternal rival, fellow Buenos Aires outfit River Plate, with 121 wins, 105 losses and 101 ties.
Boca Juniors also recorded a major schadenfreude victory when River Plate, which has won more Argentine championships than any club, was relegated to the second division at the end of last season.
American connection(s): Boca Juniors is considering sponsoring an MLS expansion team similar to Guadalajara’s Chivas USA club that plays in Los Angeles. Whether it forms a northern club or not, Los Xeneizes are admittedly eager to tap into the growing United States soccer market so be on the look out for more blue and gold kits.
