"When the Gallos score a goal, run as fast as you can to the very front, jump up on to the chain link fence, and hold on."
He went on to explain that the fans will, in fact, make an avalanche and the best place to be is at the very front hanging on the chain link fence. This is the trick to staying alive! His reasoning: #1- If you get to the front first you have survived the worst of it. Getting to the front means you don't get thrown to the ground and trampled. #2- Hanging on the chain link fence is the best option because the incredible force of the crowd pushing behind you is absorbed in the sway of the chain link fence. The fun does not stop there! Articles of clothing, beer cups anywhere from empty to full, smoke bombs, trash, and who knows what else rain down from the upper decks for a solid 45 seconds.
So after not only one, but TWO goals for the Gallos, I was drenched in beer. With plenty of fist pumping and jumping, we cheered the Gallos on to a 2-1 victory over Monterrey. I don't know if I have ever had that much fun at a sporting event before. We were on our feet the WHOLE game, cheering the WHOLE game, and enjoying absolutely every minute of it.
