Ghost of Gabriel Garcia Marquez haunts soccer stadium in Bolivia?

video-undefined-1D48877900000578-385_636x358

Booooo!  When there's something strange in your stadium who you gonna call?   Gabobusters!

Talk about magical realism! Ay caramba, this news story is straight out of Macondo.

It could also become part of the plot for Ghostbusters III.

It appears that a ghost decided to haunt  a soccer stadium in Bolivia and that someone managed to film it.

Eat your heart out, Slimer.

Check out the spooky video  HERE.

Never mind the fact that digital images can be very easily manipulated nowadays.

The fact that this apparition took place right after the death of Garcia Marquez is too much of a coincidence,  even though the event took place in a country other than the author's native Colombia. After all, we're talking Bolivia here, one of the top Cubanized and Castronoid places in Latrine America.

Chances are that very high that this ectoplasmic entity wanted to show its support for the Revolution led by Evo Morales, another great friend of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Next on his itinerary: Ecuador, Nicaragua, Argentina, Brazil.  Gabo will probably stay out of Venezuela because Hugo Chavez's ghost has exclusive rights to haunt that country.  And Castrogonia already has the demi-ghost of Gabo's beloved King Fidel.

So,there you have it, skeptics.  It's quite possible that Gabo is still showing his support for Castroism from beyond the grave. And it's also highly likely that he got the idea from his other dead soul mate Hugo Chavez, whose ghost served as a goalie in a recent game between Colombia and Venezuela.

Check that one out HERE.

So, who's next in line at the door to this exclusive ghost club?  Why not Nosferatu himself, the demi-ghost of Havana, the ailing Coma-Andante Fidel Castro?

And then watch out: once his ghost joins this club all bets are off.  He will probably find a way to steal everyone's belongings and bring them down to hell.
