It is time!
6 Years ago we watched Sepp Blatter pull a little piece of white paper from a box and it read "SOUTH AFRICA"! Many people had their doubts ... they asked Australia to bail us out ... but we are ready! More ready than any of us imagined ... and we are HAPPY to welcome thousands of foreign supporters to our land of sunshine and smiles!
I have never been more proud to be South African! I was one of those very lucky people to be in Sandton yesterday supporting our team!
It was phenominal! It was exciting! It united us all!
Is that an elephant trumpet? No, it's a Vuvuzela! That rich African sound that has become synonymous with soccer in our country!
