"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

Unfortunately the South African Tenor, Siphiwo Ntshebe, died recently and will not have the honour of performing at the opening ceremony and the Algerians suffered a thrashing from the Irish in a friendly in preparation for the finals, 3-0.  And my beloved Essien is injured. However, we still have much to look forward to!

To keep updated make sure to check up on the Official Site and come here too of course!

And here is something to really get you excited.  Can't believe I spent $5 to get this! The Vanity Fair article was terrible because it was trying to school Americans once and for all about the beauty of football.  All they had to say about the World Cup and Africa was this: 

"African football is marvelously exciting.  No African country has ever gotten past the quarter-finals, but they play with an eager, individualistic enthusiasm, often without any apparent defensive strategy.  In South Africa, while rugby and cricket were played by the white ascendancy, deafening football has always been the game of the township."


But the photos were absolutely beautiful and the recounting of pivotal moments in the game such as England 1966 win and Zidane's head-butting debacle were spot on.

So here is the front cover, and I will post the rest of the goodies on the inside in coming posts...



  1. I heard on the radio that Ronaldo is gonna sue Vanity Fair for putting his picture next to Drogba's. Doesn't want to be standing semi-naked next to his rival! ha!

  2. It seems only tabloid newspapers like the NY Post are writing articles about this -
    It all seems to be part of the whole 'Ronaldo is vain' rumour mill, I wouldn't put too much stock into it and if it is true the dude got the cover he should be happy!
