For the love of Argentina...

Found these Argentine fans, who came 37 hours in a taxi from Buenos Aires to Rio (one of the guys owns the taxi) and they don't even have tickets!! They were pumped to arrive in front of Maracana Stadium. Two of the guys said their girlfriends gave them permission to come on the condition that if Argentina wins, they will get married. Writing more about them, and the scene here in Rio before the Argentina-Germany final for Sunday Miami Herald.
