Congrats to the Spanish team for winning the Euro 2008 Championship. Yesterday they defeated the German team in the finals 1-0 on a goal by Fernando Torres in the 33rd minute. Celebrations commenced all over Spain.
While the game was going on, there was an erotic film festival going on in Barcelona. The name of the 3 day event is the International Erotic Film Festival of Barcelona (FICEB) and it features performances by buxom strippers and appearances by top porn stars. Sounds like fun.
Usually around 50,000 people attend these events but this year only about 15,000 people stopped by. You can blame soccer for it. About 17 million people in Spain were glued to their TV sets.
FICEB director Juli Simon blamed the lower-than-expected turnout on the fact that the festival’s opening day coincided with Spain’s 3-0 Euro 2008 semi-final win over Russia which drew a record Spanish television audience of 17 million.
“Football is one of the few things that can compete with sex,” he told private television station Telecinco.
I guess when you’ve had a drought of 44 years since your last Euro Championship, that takes precedent over everything.
