Sign of the Times: Hoboken hosts continental futbol

Hoboken becomes more the cosmopolitan city with its proximity and transportation access.

Over the weekend, it was the unofficial host to the Argentina National Team appearing in the final of the Copa America, the soccer tournament of the Americas celebrating its 100th year.

There was singing and dancing on lower Hudson Street and downtown in the vicinity of the W Hotel as fans came out to celebrate national pride and some of international soccer’s best.

There was even rumor of a famous religious figure.

Holy Father is it him? Apparently an Argentinian facsimile
in Hoboken spotted over the weekend.

The big game in the Meadowlands last night was deadlocked between Argentina and Chile with the always heartbreaking penalty shootout breaking the tie. Chile upset the favorites with a beguiling 4-2 victory.
