Viva South Africa soccer world cup 2010
I had never watched a full soccer match before the world cup and may never again but i loved the world cup experience. I felt a huge connection with all South Africans as we welcomed the world and mourned the exit of our national team. I know that this country has so many challenges but it was great just to put them on the back burner and have some fun for a while.... I loved the vuvuzela's - our south african soccer horn that drove the guests crazy but that they are taking home with them by the dozens. We really had an african world cup. Wonderful!
Despite all of that, i am glad that the world cup is coming to an end. We loved it all but it exhausted us all and I think its time to end it and memorialise it in memory. After all, we will always be able to say - we were there! Now lets hold thumbs for our olympic bid 2020!
And of course, we need to end it all with a great Spainish win! Ole, ole, ole, ole! Viva Espana!
