The World Cup begins this Friday! Being a soccer dork I am very excited! I was just reading an article on my google reader from the BBC that South Africa is ready for the World Cupto begin. This will be the first time the World Cup has ever been held in Africa and needless to say the Continent is really excited to have the worlds greatest sporting event. The article talks about how South Africa has music like R.Kelley for the event and will host 64 games in total. The most important information in the article however is that Nelson Mandela will be making an appearance at the opening South Africa match.
