MADE FOR EACH OTHER LIKE A SPEED BALL:

'The Two Escobars': a crime of soccer passion (Carolina Gonzalez, April 14th 2010, NY Daily News)

In Colombia's cocaine cartel era, it seems narcos and fútbol were made for each other.

That is the premise of "The Two Escobars," a documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, which starts April 21, that pairs the soccer mania of the notorious Medellín crime lord Pablo Escobar and the fate of Andrés Escobar, one of the players for the national Colombian soccer team.

Andrés Escobar was gunned down for accidentally scoring a goal against his own team at the 1994 World Cup.
