The sights - the sounds - the joy - the spirit: 2010 World Cup in South Africa - WE ARE THE WORLD!

Grab a cuppa - turn on your speakers - sit back - relax. Watch the sights - listen to the sounds of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Share in the South African joy in the moment and pride in their remarkable RAINBOW NATION. You will be happy that you did - for time well spent - without a doubt. I promise you will be gathered up and swept along with the people of South Africa into a swirl of unbridled euphoria.

So turn off my music on the sidebar and be prepared to get caught up in the exicitement of the World Cup. I dare you to sit still and not feel the rhythm, beat and happiness


I don't know what country you call home but when I saw the flag of the United States flash on the screen I felt immense pride and got a little lump in my throat. ENJOY! Today - if only for a little while - we are all South Africans!




Thank you Maxdog and MAXMOM for sharing your joys - your immense sorrows - and your country. A country that many of us knew little about and are learning to love - your beautiful South Africa.
