"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

Super Eagles and England-USA preview

I am just hoping that the Super Eagles don't disappoint by playing like mediocre pigeons against Argentina.  That match will set the tone for that group.  I would pick them as my top two to qualify.

Being in the US, I cannot help but be riled up for the game against England.  Will be going to a British Pub, never watched the World Cup beyond the comfort of my  own or a friend's home so this will be a new experience.  Even though the US have improved, I don't think that they will win, they might be able to pull out a draw if England come out the way France did today.  Was watching both ESPN and BBC America and its funny how different the coverage is.  ESPN are really trying to get Americans to love the game and I think they are giving the public unrealistic expectations and the English are not even contemplating the thought of losing.  The female anchor of the News on BBC America hit the nail on the head when she talked about the contrast between the fever in England and how you really can't tell over here in the US that the World Cup is going on because unlike across the pond, no one is really talking about it.  I feel this will reflect on the team, they are still fighting for approval from their fans. So Sad!

Can't wait for day 2 he he he :)
