      okay but 2:22, you see the ddate on the newspaper? it says June 9 1969 which is also 6/9/69 which makes me think of a very slim jim meme thing to do

    26. Noah Ramey

      Man this makes me mad how bad other countries treated El Salvador during the war. The war was clearly Honduras’s fault, as they were rioting and getting mad over a loss, making El Salvador declare war. Then, Honduras was getting help from other countries to stop El Salvador. And last but not least, other countries pressured El Salvador into not gaining a single square kilometer from a war that despite other countries helping Honduras, they clearly were winning. Also, this might not be true or possible since I don’t watch or research sports, but it looks like countries had the judges of El Salvador’s next few games rig the game, you know how sometimes it is clear that one team is being favored and El Salvador was obviously a team too good for that much loss after the football war.

    27. Adan Vasquez

      I am in Honduras lol

      It is highly probable that A. Bolanos...didn't exist. There was a polish journalist named R. Kapuscinki. He wrote a book "Football Wars", based on his work. He was there and saw many things, but, according to what locals one knew this girl. Rodrigo Arias, producer of sport collumn and experienced journalist of "La Prensa Gráfica" has been investigating this case for 2 years and he discovered many things, for example "El Nacional", the journal which was mentioned by Kapuscinski in his book, didn't exist.
