First of all Swoosh0018 would like to wish former President Nelson Mandela a happy 91st (Sorry guys,rough weekend) birthday.HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADIBA. You are truly a great man. How could we forget when Nelson donned the no 6 jersey of Pienaar....and stood with Francois Pienar and lofted the Web Ellis Trophy in a packed Ellis Park.I was chatting to a Lions Fan a few weeks ago and told him that, that rugby moment unified a country. From there Madiba has me many famous sportsman and celebrities or should I say they have met him. What a man.You did wonders for SA Nelson.Hope you enjoyed your birthday
In the Vodacom Challenge Orlando pirates beat Man City 2-0. Maybe it was the new Pirates kit. Maybe City were adjusting to Polokwane but Pirates were much quicker to the ball and City were surprised at Pirates pace. Now its Kaiser Chiefs for Man City and after securing the signing of Adebejour,City will look to redeem themselves.

In the Tour de France Lance Armstrongs second behind Alberto Contador. I need to get back into my cycling days. My Alpina, proper racing bike from back in the day, is rusting at home lol. Azee and Seth I still even have my Greg Lemond Team Z Jacket. But the tour has been amazing. The toughest endurance sport ever. I met a few cyclists lately especially local owes that have been doing the Argus etc. They say that to compete in the tour you have to be juicing or on some sort of substance. Is this true?
In the Ashes Clark and Haddin are holding out at LORDS. We up for a cracker of a final day
