LCB PODCAST 8

On July 16, 1950, the Uruguay national team perpetrated arguably the biggest theft of the 20th Century, think the “Italian Job” but done for real and on a much grander scale, except now consider that it was done with no real planning, no money, no criminal mastermind quarterbacking the whole operation, no Michael Caine, heck not even a facetious cameo from Noël Coward… what did they do you ask?

When I get sorta nostalgic about the Uruguay National Team, I remember this is no longer the Uruguay National Team just El Maestro Tabarez’ expensive toy train-set, his to do as he wishes, his to wreck, to derail, his to put back on track when he wishes or sadly IF he wishes!
