vemf, and brazil vs. spain

Just as a heads up: I’m playing at VEMF, and probably helping out with production seminars. Bring your dancing shoes and questions about compression.

Also, Brazil were robbed by Spain on Wednesday night, in a drop-dead gorgeous game of soccer. Brazil went up 2-0 in a two minute span near the end of the first half, and then Gerard Pique knocked the ball in off his hand, paused, looked at the linesman, and then began celebrating. Sigh. Spain’s second goal was off a quick free kick, which to my surprise are in fact 100% legal, although totally unsporting in the modern game.

And to be fair, Brazil made a poor substitution, taking off the full-back that had contained Spain’s explosive left winger, Diego Capel. And it was Capel who starred as Spain began to dominate, eventually producing the cross for Alberto Bueno to score the game winner. A lucky, but gritty, win for the Spaniards, who have an unusual habit of getting better as a game goes on.

Oh, and the broadcast team for the CBC is amazingly inept and know nothing about soccer.
