Pigeon killer Aguirre

It was the most important game in the history of Club Atlético Tigre. It was the first leg of the 3 way playoff at the end of the Apertura 2008 championship.There was a huge TV audience for this unexpected pre-Christmas bonus game and they all saw San Lorenzo's Gastón Aguirre kill an innocent pigeon.

For those of you who are actually interested in the football the results were:

Tigre 1-2 San Lorenzo
Boca Juniors 3-1 San Lorenzo
Boca Juniors 0-1 Tigre

Which meant that Boca Juniors won on goal difference, a tad unfair considering that at the end of the regular season San Lorenzo had by far the better goal difference and Tigre had the better head-to-head but they had to play the end of season playoff with Boca Juniors who were awarded the championship on goaldifference after a 3 way tie.
