I had faith in them and they did made us proud and hope on next world cup, the trophy will be coming to Africa.

Memories of my first world cup date back to world cup USA in 1994. I might have seen world cups before television as a kid but USA was the first one I understood. Especially Roberto Baggio’s pony tail. I had never thought I would experience in South Africa, it was always a far fetched dream. Then SA got to host it this year(unbelievable story). The pitches were as green as the ones you see on crisp champions league night at Santiago Bernabéu, Camp Nou and the Emirates staduim(dream pitches). But it all happened in Africa, same players that grace dream pitches graced SA pitches, and the stadiums were unbelievable. I am glad we did not try and build stadiums similar Germany stadims, we forged our own path.

I would love to see Caster Semenya running all she could as nature blessed her with something else that makes her more special than other girls around.

We are born man and woman and questioning any departure is not that fair letting nature absorb its own mistakes and us believe that the perfection in nature has plenty of room for many imperfections and our assurance to assume that nature is in charge guiding our survival and makeup. What nature gives should be granted because it can be more muscles, thinner bones, or even a better hormone biochemistry to let an improved performance benefit few gifted ones.
