We are the champions

Unless you live in the US or one of the weird European countries, you should know by now that the South African rugby team – the Springboks – won the World Cup Rugby competition last Saturday.

Despite the fact that an American player got the award for the best try scored during the competition, my brother-in-law in Kansas says it is extremely difficult to find a channel that shows rugby in the US. I would imagine the same thing in countries like Germany, Sweden.

Well done Bokke.

Proteas drop out of Cricket World Cup again

Once again the Proteas (SA’s cricket team) has failed to get to the finals of the cricket world cup, being beaten in the semi-finals by the arch-enemy in all things sporting, the Australians.

There doesn’t seem to be consistency in the way the team plays. They got thrashed by Sri Lanka, then beat the English easily, but couldn’t sustain that performance against the Aussies.

So the final will now be the Aussies vs. Sri Lanka – I think its the 3rd time the Aussies have got there. I suspect they will win, but my family will be supporting the Sri Lankans.
