We watched the last game at the "Captain's Cabin" in Saldanha and there was a very good vibe going on, lots of yellow tee shirts, some vuvuzelas and plenty of happy Bafana Bafana supporters, I didn't notice any Mexicans but maybe they were keeping a low profile!
There has been a lot of controversy over the "Vuvuzela", a noisy instrument of torture to overseas visitors and journalists but I love it, it is African and it is Africa. You have to understand that to the black Africans soccer is much more than just a game, it is almost like a religion and they are incredibly passionate about it and apparently the vuvuzela came from one of the churches where it was blown on religious occasions to chase the devil away. This may yet prove to be a benefit to us in that visiting teams are getting so pissed off by the noise that they cannot concentrate and our team will win!
Here you see me and Dick with our team shirts on, actually we were eating oysters this afternoon but we are looking forward to tonight's game against Uruguay - can we do it? The game starts shortly and South Africans all over the country and the world will be behind the team. GO BAFANA BAFANA!!! We'll talk later, after the game.
