South Africa 2010

The circus moves on. I went to the unveiling of the South Africa 2010 emblem in Berlin yesterday. You couldn't move for football glitterati: Hadji, Abedi Pele, Roger Milla. If you haven't seen the emblem yet, that's what it looks like (right). I'll write down my thoughts on the event later today, but my initial reaction (after much scepticism) is that South Africa can pull it off.

Looks like a good emblem to me, though it has the rainbow colours of South Africa, it is placed within the context of the map of Africa as a whole.

No prizes for noticing the football player is skillfully and fantastically black - that would have been absolutely unintentional :-))

Of course, South Africa can pull it off! People should give Africa some credit, abeg!

No doubt you'll get a jammy trip there in four years time. Please consider me an applicant for chief bag carrier and general gofer!
