Mass whistling at a soccer game is usually a sign of disapproval. But when 60,000?
Mass whistling at a soccer game is usually a sign of disapproval. But when 60,000 male residents of Sao Paulo, Brazil, whistled on August 6 they were admiring not admonishing. Twenty-two beautiful show girls were playing in the first International Show Girls Soccer Tournament.
The two teams -- one from Sao Paulo and the other from Uruguay -- may not have displayed the clever footwork usually associated with their national male teams, but their body-swerves and obvious disappointment when misskicking the ball brought cheers and sympathy from the delighted audience.
Although Sao Paulo won by seven goals to one, the Uruguayan women were -- as all women area -- brilliant in defence.
