The emotion singing the national anthem was the same when Kojor touched Amitabh Bachans feet in Kabee Kushee Kabee Gham. A special moment.
The Build Up, The partying with the fans and the Mexicans in Sandton.2010 IS HERE and to be a part of the opening ceremony was freakin fantastic.
To watch your country play the opening game of a World Cup Final..truely special.
The atmosphere was amazing. My first visit to Soccer City also fantastic.The Stadium or Calabash is a cauldron.You feel close to the pitch.
As a footie fan The thought of being so involved in a World Cup is mnd blowing.
People can call me crazy or a lunatic or obsessive.One critic approached me and said.Why do you make such a big deal of this.Players are normal people.Its just soccer.
You know whats my response.
In the Words of Bill Shankley.
"Football is not about life and death.Its more than that"
This is the World Cup,The Pinnacle of every fan and I intend to make the best of it.This is what i have waited for.
We all wanted a South African victory.A Nervy start by South Africa should have seen Mexico take the lead. But great passing, composure and a fantastic finish by Siphiwe Tshabalala drove teh nation into a frenzy.Fans were partying in the streets I hear.
Where I was sitting Fans went freaking insane.
Then we went to sleep and Mokoena played the Mexicans onside and 1-1.Well hard Luck to Aaron I thought he made some vital tackles.
Mphela hit the post and it was not meant to be. Thats the way it goes.
We would have loved three points but we have to settle for one and now hop to beat Uraguay.
So The Next game is Big.
Please share your experiences on the event!
