The biggest show on earth

Patriotism

“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.”

– Mark Twain –

Well, IT has arrived. As if you didn’t know. The SWC. The show that has cost us billions. The Cape Times headline says “Zille says the hangover will be worth it.” I sure hope so Helen.

Like so many millions today, I will be watching the opening ceremony as well as Bafana’s debut against Mexico. Our car even has those ridiculous little side mirror muffs on it; courtesy of the Chinese who will probably make more out of the World Cup than ordinary South Africans will.

Our boys seem to have got at least some mojo going at last. Wiki mentions movie mojo as in “the sexual charm of Austin Powers”. Yeah right. Give me George Clooney any day.

Hopefully, we can escape the dire results of the vuvuzela pestilence and enjoy the beautiful game. For beautiful game it certainly is when played by the best in the world. The best, of course, does not include Mr McCarthy who thought he was a shoo-in. Tough lesson to learn Benni. Pity about Becks; he is a rather sexy fellow – until he opens his mouth that is!

Have a great World Cup day!
