I don’t know about you, but when it comes down to a trip to Vegas for either the National Fantasy Baseball Championship draft or the AVN Weekend, I’m going with the ladies all the way. And that’s coming from someone who loves fantasy baseball. That’s why I was pretty shocked to read what happened in Spain over the weekend where the International Erotic Film Festival of Barcelona was held. Previous editions of the Festival have drawn over 50,000 people, but this year’s edition had a much lower sausage ratio. Why you ask?
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 can’t imagine the attendance did much better on Sunday when Spain beat Germany in the finals. But seriously, if they’re actually filming live documentaries at the Festival, then I have to question the priorities of these Spaniards. After all, this is soccer we’re talking about, right?
