Con gol de Monzón (´42), Boca venció (1-0) a Tigre en la Bombonera y se consagró campeón 2015 en el Torneo de 30 equipos sumando 64 puntos (6 más que su inmediato perseguidor, San Lorenzo).

Después de tres años, Boca volvió a dar una vuelta olímpica: la estrella número 33 en el ámbito local (25 de profesionalismo, 2 Copa Argentina y 6 amateur).

Fecha 25, otoño del torneo. Boca visita a Argentinos Juniors defendiendo la punta. Va ganando (2-1) en el partido del regresado Tévez que se llevaba el partido con dos golazos. El partido se pica. Se insultan, se manosean, se pegan y hasta caen cosas de las tribunas.
Hasta que en el minuto 75, en plena disputa de mitad de cancha, Tévez (31) va con desleal plancha al tobillo de Ezequiel Ham (21) y le produjo una fractura expuesta.

1.Nada nuevo bajo el sol argentino que, por estos días, apunta sus focos y miradas (otra vez) a su apéndice del fútbol. La nimia y casi imperceptible autocrítica pública de Daniel Angelici (presidente de Boca) quedó atrás de su marcada y simultánea posición de "perjudicado" presto a la apelación.

Sobre Daniel Angelici.

Daniel Angelici no es un tipo querido. Como delfín de Mauricio Macri, la materia que más le cuesta es la construcción de su perfil público. Su modo de hablar (muy lejos de un mínimo recorrido intelectual) conjugado con las inconfesables intenciones de su acción, lo hacen transpirar. Es de esos hombres que necesitan años de couching y postrera amnesia colectiva para constituirse un respeto público (sabemos que tampoco es fácil hacer amigable a quien sólo tiene intenciones de quedarse con tu dinero).
