"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

It's Really Happening!

Man, it really has started!  A little disappointed in South Africa, wished they had been able to hold onto their lead, but at least they did not become the first Host Nation to lose their opening game! France were rather lacklustre as well.  This makes this group interesting however. All of them have drawn.  I think the decider match will be when South Africa plays France.  I hope both of them go through but I fear after their performances, only one may go through and one of the South American teams will sneak through...

Find highlights of South Africa game here and of the France game here.

Congrats to Tshabalala! It was a beautiful opening goal! Great victory dance too!

You can also see the goal from different angles here.

So sad to hear about Mandela's great-granddaughter who unfortunately was killed in a car accident yesterday.  For those of you that are out there stay safe!

Here is some video of the Opening Ceremony but you have to be in the right region to watch it.

Here is a video I found of the part honouring the 32 teams competing.
