South African for a day



Rugby is not my sport BUT It was so much fun watching South Africa defeat England in the finals of the Rugby World Cup.
I actually felt like a South African, at least for the 2 hrs or so not least cos of the anthems of "O God bless our native Africa", even the famous Lady Smith Mmambazo did a rendition for the South African national team.

Sports aside, i was thinking a few weeks ago of actually taking stock of this year, to see if i met my goals or if i have made the most of the year (at least in the areas where i din't have any meaningful goals.)

But then i remember how sports matches can change in the last minute because the crucial goal was scored in the dying seconds...so i'll wait till December cos i believe the very best is still ahead. The year seems to have flew on very fast..not that i mind though.

@Ayo
Rugby is a mad sport and i can't believe i felt prey to it.
But after watching a few matches at the world cup, i started loving it. There's one of the South Africans, Bryan habana (names after manchester united legend..bryan robson), this guys runs as fast as i have ever seen a man run. He had a race with a cheetah earlier this year, he was given a headstart of 30 yards and the race ended in a tie. when he moves, its like nothing can catch him. How's canada, exams, flight et al?

@ Oguchi
Which kind specs u dey wear o.
It was fun to see the 3 prime ministers there.
The year has been one huge ride..i have a feeling theres more twists and thrills. God, tho has been faithful.

I agree; you have time. I made some predictions for 2007 on my blog back in January. I get tempted from time to time to give myself a final grade, but alas, I still have time!
