Boca Juniors goal celebrations hit 6.4 on the Richter scale

Dirty Tackle

Nike wanted to know just how powerful the trembles Boca Juniors fans produce so they set up seismographs throughout the Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario prior to the Copa Argentina final between Boca and Racing last week. Though the neutral ground only holds a little more than 25,000 people -- far less than the Boca's famously intense La Bombonera (which holds nearly 58,000), Boca fans still got the place shaking and registered a 6.4 on the Richter scale after their side went up 1-0 in the 21st minute.

The fans then hit 6.1 when Boca scored again in the 62nd minute and an anti-climactic 5.8 after the final whistle on their 2-1 win to take the cup.

Of course, it's hard to compare these numbers to earthquakes, which start deep underground and much further away from the measurement devices than Boca fans were. But it makes you wonder what a home crowd at a much larger ground like the Estadio Azteca or Camp Nou would hit.
