Animals | Circus is in town

Jean-Marie Pfaff (photo from jmpfaff.be [1]), in his heyday as a goalkeeper for Belgium and Bayern Munich in the 1970s and ’80s, built a popular following.

Now 54, he is the centerpiece of long-running Belgian reality TV show De Pfaffs [1]. Pfaff’s affinity for performance will further be tested as part of the upcoming Antwerp Winter Circus.

As an update to our earlier report on dogs and football (20 Jul 06 [2]), Pfaff will be tending the nets [3] during a four-on-four exhibition—Belgium vs. Netherlands—featuring boxer dogs trained by a Romanian artist. “A circus is something that takes me back to the heyday of my youth,” said Pfaff, who formed his first football team as a child, including himself and his 10 brothers. “Now I will be the artist myself.”
