World Cup

The 2010 Soccer World Cup is most definitely here! :)

The excitement was palpable yesterday and the day before, with the constant buzz of vuvuzelas in the distance sounding like a giant swarm of bees.

We were in Sandton City on Wednesday evening to see "Drumstruck", and walking through Nelson Mandela Square was contagiously optimistic and exhilirating. I was going to post my own video here...but it's not working! :(

Congratulations to Bafana Bafana - we're still in it! I don't really know much about soccer but those saves were awesome, and so was our goal.

I would just like to say, though, that we really needed someone singing our anthem to lead the audience - it was some of the worst anthem-singing ever! (besides that rasta guy during that one test in France!)
