Awesomely cool SWC Adidas shirt ... check


Tickets to see a game ... chec ... wait a minute. No.


That's right - I have absolutely no tickets to see a game. Thus far, all my efforts to secure some people to bring along with me to watch something in PE (which is by far the closest) have been met with more opposition than freeing the internet in China. Not since Herr Blatter tried to introduce a FIFA charge for cheering at games has there been so much resistance.


It's a little dispiriting.


So, I suppose I will watch a couple of the games from the comfort of my own living room. Which I suppose should be fine - I have a pretty decent TV and good sound. And I guess if I get tired of it all I can just switch over to something else.


I just don't think it'll be the same though. I mean when you get right down to it, there's nothing quite like the feeling of being at an actual, live game.


The shouting, the potential for rain and even the Vuvuzelas.


So if you're one of the lucky ones who managed to a) get a ticket b) get time off and c) find people to go with, spare a thought for me as you hopefully watch some foreigner find out that South Africa really can do bloody well.
