A Different View of the World' s Greatest Sport!

Update From South Africa

It was announced last week or so that yesterday, 9th June at 12 noon everyone in support of the country should go outside and blow their vuvuzelas.

And those in support did not fail to deliver. Cars were hooting, vuvuzelas blowing (it gave me goose bumps, brrrrrrrr)

Amazing to see so much support given for the national team, the flood of people dressed in yellow and green puts a tear in the corner of my eye out of proudness.

I can truly say that the whole of South Africa has whipped itself into a World Cup Frenzy! And it’s alive beyond expectation.

The news here in our office is that we will have a shortened day on Friday and have a big screen up in the boardroom for the viewing of the opening ceremony and the South African game, drink and food will be supplied, nice of them, don’t you think? 😀

Our city has gotten a facelift too with a big wheel close to the stadium, streets are being decorated and  it’s a beautiful site. It’s plain to see that the world cup is one of the most feverously addictive experiences.

I am grateful that I will be part of one of the most amazing experiences in this lifetime of mine. And with less than 1 day to go it will only get better.

Peace out for now!                                                                                                                        Ageez


Update from South Africa

9th June 2010

At midday local time hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets around the country in support of Bafana-Bafana. They blew vuvuzelas, cars honked their horns, people cheered and danced in the streets.

The noise and vibe was an experience to behold all over the country.

There has also been an explosion of colour. There are flags everywhere, people are selling ones that attach to your car at the traffic lights, along with mirror socks in all the nations flags.

There are plenty of foreigners living in SA and many have their home country and the SA flag on their cars in some way, shape or form and it is quite literally every 3rd car in Cape Town that is decorated in a nations flag of some kind.

Gearing up for my first game on Friday night after watching Bafana vs Mexico at a local restaurant with my family.

Will keep you posted.
