The "Soccer" world cup is 2 weeks away still.

Right now we have more important football to be played. It is half-time in the final game between the Pretoria and Cape Town rugby teams. (Blue Bulls against the Stormers) in the Super 14 Championship. We are behind on points . . . . .

After this game, we will turn our attention to the FIFA World Cup

Dennis, you can manage without the helmet if you discard all the plastic that is worn under the clothes!

Helmets, in these situations, would be dangerous!

Pablo, you guys are most welcome in Pretoria! It's winter here now, but the temperature is very moderate but they can expect frost in the morning. UP has excellent facilities which will no doubt increase your team's chances. We even had some light rain last night which will help to keep the temperatures up.

And now, for a better subject: BLOU BULLE BO!

If there are any Stormers supporters: Hoe se mens dankie? (soos gesing deur Jurie Els)

If there any Lions supporters left: Anybody south of the Jukskei is now free to join the Blou Bulle.

Rugby is not football! Football (or soccer) is for prima donnas! (Sorry Pablo!)

American football consists of small men playing in excessive padding and protective gear and is only understood by Americans.

In rugby, the only protective gear is a scrum cap to prevent cauliflower ears and underpants.

Yeah... right... because watching men rub each other in the mud is manly



Joking... I do like rugby, my son is learning to play it at school, last time I went to stadium to see a rugby match Los Pumas defeated Wales.

And lets not forget, in 2012 we will play each other on the Tri+1 Nations

Kobus, no man, this is GROSSSSSS, this is what we used to call this TEIN OPS. This is an East Rand Lions supporter in Blou Bulle disguise, the RED lips are a dead giveaway.

a tie with the group strongest team is always good news, the US team did not played a good match, it was a tie mostly due to a HUGE error of England goalie.

I think that 1 meter long vuvuzela should be banned - it was the idea of a plastics company only 10 years ago.

At least your football team did better than your rugby team who lost both tests to Scotland :-)

I find it very amusing hat Engerland have not qualified yet - the media are getting all uptight and suggesting all sort of reasons why they are not strolling into the final.

But some of the jokes are good.

Engerland are to get a new coach -they will board it at Heathrow on Friday
