Ben Reiter: Spain, Portugal fans banter in friendly rivalry

CAPE TOWN -- After centuries of animosity, the relationship between Spain and Portugal is these days collegial, and even fraternal. The Iberian nations now rather like each other, and harmoniously collaborate, among other things, on the extinguishing of forest fires. So the atmosphere outside Cape Town's Green Point Stadium before Tuesday night's World Cup Round of 16 clash between the countries was not so much reminiscent of Texas versus Oklahoma -- and certainly not England versus Germany -- as it was of an extended family's resumption of an annual Thanksgiving touch football game. Gentle and good-natured trash-talk prevailed, and fans from both sides seemed rather fond of screaming the word "Ole!".
