Instead Of Getting Cigarettes Mexican Guy Flies To Russia To Watch Soccer

OddityCentral In what many are calling the lie of the century, a die-hard football fan from Puebla, Mexico, told his wife that he was stepping out to buy a pack of cigarettes, but ended up boarding a plane to Germany, and then driving to Russia, to see his national football team play in the Confederations Cup.
Antonio Garcia recently got his five minutes of fame on the internet, after news of his escapade to Mexico’s match against Russia, in Kazan, went viral on social media. The man had reportedly told his wife that he was going out to buy a pack of cigarettes, buy he actually travelled to Monterey, where he got on a plane to Wolfsburg, Germany, where some of his relatives live, and from there he drove to Kazan, Russia, where he joined hundreds of other Mexican fans in supporting the national football team.
“I told my wife, I’d go to Oxxo – a popular convenience store chain in Mexico – for some cigarettes, but I did not tell her which one,” Garcia told a news reporter. I think it’s safe to assume that she wasn’t expecting a trans-Atlantic flight…
The ardent football fan later revealed that his wife had eventually found out that he had travelled to Russia for the match, but it’s not clear yet if she knows that he spent his life savings on the trip. He might want to consider buying her a nice gift from the airport’s duty-free shops on his way back, just to be sure he still has a home to get back to.
“The cost did not matter to me,” Arturo said. “The only important thing is to be close to the team.”
Interestingly, while in Germany, Arturo Garcia managed to damage his Achilles’s tendon while playing football with some locals, and doctors advised him to rest in bed, but he wouldn’t hear of it. He had to limp and support himself with crutches, but he made it to the game, and that was all that mattered.

Can’t not love this guys undeniable love of the game. There’s folks out there that will get their favorite team’s logo tattooed on their face. Then there’s guys who wear their favorite team’s helmet on as they say I Do to their future wives. But there aren’t many fans out there who tell their wife that they’re going to the store 5 minutes down the road to get smokes and instead fly across the world to watch their favorite team play soccer. That just doesn’t happen. It didn’t happen until Arturo Garcia deked his wife and did just that.

I wonder how this all went down. Arturo siting there all bummed about not being able to see his team play. He looks at his wife, the person who’s not allowing him to go and then like Edison inventing the light bulb, he comes up with a genius idea. Why not just tell her I’m going to the store for smokes, then get my life savings and jump on a jet and go to Russia. She’ll never figure this out. Bulletproof.

This line in particular has me loving this story even more:

Call me nuts, but I think it’s fair to say that old Arturo’s senorita knows about what he did. Maybe it was when she went to the bank and noticed a gigantic chunk of change missing from the account. Or perhaps it was when she noticed that instead of coming back in 5 minutes that he came back multiple days later with a noticeable limp. Or possibly maybe that he told his story the news and he went viral. Who knows

Just to keep track of what this legend of lying did; lied to his wife about getting smokes and flew to Russia to watch soccer, used his life savings for the trip, played soccer with locals and ripped his achille’s tendon. It’s unfortunate that he didn’t also get a girl pregnant because then he would he would of achieved the grand slam of screwing up a marriage. Also, it’s safe to say that since he’s broke that going to Dr. James Andrews is out of the question. I wouldn’t worry though. I have a feeling that braniac Arturo has some kind of genius plan to get out of this. Something like showing up home on crutches days after he was supposed to and say he was held hostage or something. All I know is he’ll think of something.

It’s worth noting that Mexico defeated Russia 2-1. Nothing helps time heal all wounds like a W
