Although Sunday's match between Rosario Central and River Plate ended in a tie, a winner did indeed emerge in the form of a dog who invaded the field during the first half. The likely inspiration for the newest Air Bud movie proceeded to go to defecate in the middle of the pitch, before dodging multiple people who attempted to subdue him. As the dog dodged players, excited fans shouted "Ole!" -- a term generally used when one team passes the ball around as the other chases. All in all, it just looked like it was having a fun time out there. Great day for soccer.
