I've seen a lot of sports spectacles in my life. I've sat amongst the "Barra Brava" in Argentina as Boca Juniors faced San Lorenzo in a heated soccer match at Buenos Aires' Bombanera Stadium in the 80's. I've been in NBA games with the laser and fog shows. I've seen the Mets in New York and the Red Sox in Boston at the height of their success. I've witnessed heated Dodger Giant battles at both San Francisco and Los Angeles. But I have to say, the energy and relentless excitement of the Dominican fans was right up there with any excitement I've ever seen at a sports spectacle. The photos don't do it justice. Videos up next post.
