In case you are not a soccer fan; you may not have know that for the first time ever the continent of Africa will host the 2010 FIFA world cup. 32 teams including the likes of Nigeria, Cameroon, & Ghana will be converging in South Africa to compete for the World Cup Trophy. Africa goes mad for soccer and I am looking forward to being in Kenya when it happens.
Unfortunately no teams from East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania) are represented. But I will be proudly cheering on the USA squad as they take on England in their first match June 12th. Being just a few countries geographically away from SA (tanzania, zambia, zimbabwe) it was tempting to get tickets. But it didn't happen. Anybody out there got an extra ticket to the World Cup?
Check out this three minute anthem to the 2010 World Cup...even if you don't know soccer superstars like Rooney, Ronaldo, and Landon Donovan you will recognize Homer Simpson and Kobe Bryant.
If this can't get you excited about the worlds most popular game futball, then nothing can.
