What a Razzmatazz sporting weekend we just had a repetition would be great. I liked it when our honourable Minister of Sports Fikile Mbalula tweeted “Honorable Twitter Members join me in declaring @BafanaBafana BUNCH OF WINNERS”. As Baba Mthethwa would say “Bafana bana maan! (this boy though)” Bafana ba Shakes have qualified for AFCON 2015 which has officially been announced that it’ll be hosted by Equatorial Guinea with a game in hand when they beat Sudan 2-1. “Now all of ‘Sudan’ the nation believes in the national team again” damn you’ve got to love our minister of sports. Whether they beat Nigeria on Wednesday (19-11-2014) or not siyaya e AFCON (we’re going to AFCON) and we hope they’ll play the ball and bring the trophy home not Ebola.
“And he hits it and it sails over the boundary, it’s a SIXX!!!” RAM Slam T20 tournament is still on and lucky supporters stand a chance to win a share of the million if they catch a six with one hand. The less said about our Titan’s performance so far the better, but they can change all that with their upcoming fixtures against Lions and Warriors on Friday (21-11-2014) and Sunday (23-11-2014). Back on the national pride tip our Proteas after losing the first ODI match set #proteafire on the Aussies to level the score. It’s not about how you start but how you apply what you’ve learnt going forward. The Proteas will also be in action on Wednesday (19-11-2014), Friday (21-11-2014) and the last match will be played on Sunday (23-11-2014), all the best boys.
Crouch, touch, pauuse, engage! The IRB no2 ranked (soon to be 1st) Boks got back to winning ways when they beat England 31-28 on Saturday (15-11-2014). The Boks seem to have learned their lesson, I always say it’s always good to mess up now so you can be better prepared later. Their next fixture will be against Italy this coming Saturday (22-11-2014). All this games, losses and confidence builders will go a long run in helping them prepare for the World Cup next year.
On cycling news our Pretorian girls Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and Cherise Stander finishing second and third behind winner Marianne Vos from Netherlands in the Mmentum 947 Cycle Challenge. National pride was restored with Bafana, Boks and the Proteas all winning. I feel it’s safe to declare this year a soccer year for Mzansi with Amajimbos (under 17), Amajita (under 20), Banyana and now Bafana all qualifying for CAF tournaments, had we featured in the World Cup neh lol. I just hope it’s safe for Bafana to travel to Nigeria with Boko Haram, collapsing buildings and all that we need to hold a national prayer for the boys.
