For the last couple of days there has only been one thing in the hearts and minds of Johannesburg, or in fact the entire country, and that is the FIFA World Cup. I am not, nor have I ever been, a football fan or even follower, but I have to admit that I have been seduced by the gees (energy) that this ginormous event has created. It all started on Wednesday when a local radio station got behind getting people to the streets in support of our local team, Bafana Bafana. A few thousand where expected, one hundred and eighty thousand turned out. Then on Thursday the incredible Kick off concert that surpassed my wildest expectations, and now today, the opening ceremony and the first match, our team against Mexico. And Bafana Bafana scored the first goal of the match, which even though it ended in a 1 - 1 draw was a wonderful achievement. What an exciting time to be in South Africa.
Oh wow, an entry about soccer on my blog. Who'd ever have thought it!
