. . . It’s funny, I used to be a massive cricket supporter!

I love sport, all kinds of sport, no matter how stupid, useless or irrelevant it may seem I love them all (well except South African cricket but that’s a whole other story). Each sport represents some kind of way for humans to excel, push themselves and achieve. It is the greatest teacher of life lessons … Continue reading United vs City and why sport is the greatest teacher of all . . .
I don’t often defend the South African government, in fact I think this is the first time I can remember (I did a search on the blog and found THESE – none of them positive) and so now I find myself in unfamiliar territory (and I’m pretty sure I’m going to seriously anger a few … Continue reading Sometimes you choose between right & right: The Dalai Lama was the wrong right!
Let’s get a few things out the way here first! Firstly I used to love cricket until it was spoiled for so many reasons i cant go into.

I was recently sent this text written by Jonathen Jansen – I’m not entirely sure the context but I thought it an amazing note – have a read . . . My South Africa is the working-class man who called from the airport to return my wallet without a cent missing. It is the white … Continue reading My South Africa . . .
@mspr1nt over at Paddlesweep wrote an article partly in response to one we’d written about the Proteas a little while ago and more so because they’re under attack by a large portion of the SA public. His arguments are good and for cricket fans I think he makes some great points. I personally don’t really … Continue reading The Proteas Zapirofied

We posted a message from Jack Spanish the other day leading up to the epic game against France. Included in the mail were some words of inspiration for the team that had been written before the start of the tournament. Although they may not have made it through, I certainly believe they rocked out. And … Continue reading Rock Out Bafana
They have little chance – let’s not beat around the bush. I would go so far as to say they have as much chance of winning a trophy this season as Bafana Bafana or South Africa’s cricket team, BUT they do have a little chance! Some part of me always loves the underdog though, and … Continue reading Come on the Stormers!
I did a search for “the South African cricket team” and came across how not to do things in sport. There were also a number of ads for pies. Other You’re doing it wrong topics are coming up.
