It’s not too late to get in on the fun:
Well, it looks like we have the German Consulate and the Teamsters to thank for today’s showing of the final match of World Cup 2011.
(Did Rec and Park make a special website to promote this event in Civic Center? Looks that way.)
All the deets of the U.S. vs. Japan:
The weather was looking like it was going to be a little kosame (Japanese for drizzle, something like “a little bit of rain”) today but Civic Center is generally sunny even when there’s drizzle in the West Bay, so it should all be good.
Hey, you know who has World Cup fever? SFGate, that’s who. SFGate just seems to loooooove frolicking female soccer players.
*Oh, I guess they added more shots in there on that bit. Before, it was like seven frolicsome honey photos with just one sports-type shot. But it looks like they were just getting started when I first noticed. Still, you don’t get too many frolic shots of men’s soccer on the SFGate…
All the deets, below.
The animation looks fresh after all these years:

Join noted Walt Disney Family Museum historian and author Paul F. Anderson as he chronicles Walt’s contributions towards the War effort. World War II became the most critical event of the twentieth century, and its effect on the Disney Studios was profound. Relive this pivotal time through never-before-seen images, rare video clips, and moving stories – and through this narrative discover how Walt Disney whole-heartedly devoted himself and his organization to winning the war. Paul’s presentation is sometimes funny, often emotional, and thoroughly uplifting.
Screening – Victory Through Air Power + Conversation
2:00pm | Theater ($)
Walt Disney Family Museum historian Paul F. Anderson will offer a visual presentation on the making of the film, and the resulting impact the film had on Allied war strategy. This brief presentation will be followed by a screening of Walt Disney’s Victory Through Air Power (1944), after which we will open up the floor to any questions.
See you there!
A little hazy on what happened last year, back in 2010 when the whole meghilla got the kibosh.
