Me and the lads caught some IPL ACTION between the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Daredarevills. The atmosphere at the bullring lived up to its expectation as usual and it was great to see players like Hayden, Dhoni, Ghambir, AB Devilliers, Muralee and the likes. And it was also sublime to be part of the IPL atmosphere in JHB. Overall the Bullring needs no explanation
THE SHOOBS CORNER
My entry for Swoosh is a bit delayed this week as I had to take some time off to recover from my trip to OT for the clash against the Gooners. I drove up to OT with one Durban fulla and ex-Bafana-Bafana med Dr Zaid Eshak (who I’ve urged to write a book, his stories about travelling with Bafana Bafana in Africa are great). We were hoping to get to OT at least 2-3 hours before the game to join the hardcore okes at the Bishops Blaize so we left London at 1PM but didn’t account for the Gooner faithful driving up.
