I thought that the Milovan Rajevac (the Serbian citizen who coaches Ghana) acted despicably after Ghana beat Serbia on Sunday. When his assistant coaches went to congratulate him in excitement, he brushed them off in irritation and embarrassment as if celebrating would be treason to his native country. I realize that he is Serbian, and that his team Ghana had just beaten Serbia, but if he has a conflict in his heart then he shouldn’t have accepted the job.

Just as the rules exist for players, I think that countries should not be allowed to have a foreign citizen act as head coach; at most he or she should be an assistant coach. This will ensure that behaviour as displayed by Rajevac will not happen again, and all conspiracy theories (like the one circulating about Rajevac purposely trying to lose to Serbia) will be put to rest.

the great war

I watched an outstanding play last weekend called “The Great War” – playing at the Cameron House on Queen Street West. It was witty, playful, funny, but still relevant about the atrocities and darkness of war.

This play was revealing in its meagerness of materials – no Mirvish production here. It goes to show that all you need is great acting, great lighting, and great costumes and props. I couldn’t believe how effective they were with a tiny stage and well-timed lighting and dialogue. Highly recommended.

resa’s pieces

I heard a beautiful documentary on CBC radio on Sunday about a band of eclectic musicians who are playing their annual concert tomorrow night at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. For tickets, you can call Ruth Fishman at 647-295-2345.

Resa’s Pieces started in 2000 as a place for negligent adult musicians to return to playing instruments that they hadn’t touched in years. They can also be contacted on Facebook at Resa’s Pieces.
