Bolivia: San José Champions

Hugo Miranda of Angel Caido [es] celebrates the victory of his hometown San José from Oruro, who captured their first Bolivian football title in twelve years.


  • Since he was a little boy, my abuelito followed his hometown Santos (he later moved to La Paz, then Cochabamba, then Santa Cruz). He would often go to other soccer matches (he was a devotee of the sport) in Santa Cruz w/ a pocket radio we sent from the US. It was always tuned to the Oruro game. He’s been dead about three years now, but I’m sure he’s smiling in heaven.

  • Thanks, Miguel for sharing that.

  • Que Bien Miguel, fue un triunfo sonado en Toda Bolivia en Oruro el Jeuves todos andaban con gafas despues de la farra del dia anterior…
