GIL, Gastón Julián. "I folow you everywhere ": Passion and aguante in a Hinchada of the inner country club. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2006, n.7, pp.333-348. ISSN 1850-373X.

This paper presents an analysis of the logic of the behavior of football supporters of Club Atlético Aldosivi based on fieldwork carried out among them. The ritual of travel of the hinchada (fan base) appears as a key ethnographic and theoretical resource in explaining the representations that football supporters put in play in their daily struggle to define their own identity. Argentinean hinchadas (fans) construct, in the routine of their journeys to away games, rites of institution that permit them to renew the passionate contract with their beloved team. In these travels, they form a festive atmosphere in which the consumption of substances such as marihuana and alcohol guide them to a sense of belonging to an exclusive universe ruled by different passions and aguantes. Those who experience these rituals consider themselves to be true hinchas, compared to the others who are not able to follow the team everywhere. This is a crucial point because to be part of the visiting team "wherever the team may play, enduring all" (se juegue donde se juegue, aguantándosela) is one of the central points of the masculine honor of the fans. As liminal situations, these rites constitute both a passage and an identificatory institution.
