    Flamengo beat Botafogo 2-0 in the game. As soon as it finished, all of the Botafogo fans in the section we were in ran hard, down the stadium and out into the street. Cash told me we were running to ‘Fighting Street to meet the guys,’ which is a street across the road from the stadium where fans of each team fight after games. Cops on horseback were ready to prevent incident! Maracanã Stadium Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. 9 March 2014

    There were cops everywhere to prevent the hooliganism. There were cops with huge batons, cops with machine guns, and cops on horseback. Cash told me to stay close to him so that I did not get beaten by the cops. Nothing escalated as the Flamengo fans stayed away from Fighting Street, so Cash, two of his friends and I got into a cab to come home. He told me it was too dangerous for them to ride the subway home. Check out the cops with huge batons and the one with the machine gun. Maracanã Stadium Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. 9 March 2014
