Here’s mine for this week:

Driving through Stellenbosch on Friday on my way to Somerset West; all the street vendors have flags and soccer shirts and all yellow paraphernalia.
Feel it, it is here!

Are you still there, or has the soccer fever gotten to you? It’s highly contagious. Doesn’t matter how many black flags with white skulls on mirror socks you put on your car, overnight they will transmogrify into SA flag and Portugal. Humans are affected as well as inanimate objects. You have been warned. Symptoms include rushing to nearest Pep, crazy store or street vendor to buy made-in-China knockoffs for cheap-cheap lest you are caught on Friday during match time without a vuvuzela. (I had to add vuvuzela to my MSWord dictionary so that it won’t have that irritating little red squiggle.)
Even the platteland isn’t safe. We now have 3 cars sporting SA flag mirror socks, and about a gazillion ones with little flags clamped in their windows. All you hear at rush hour is flap-flap-flap-flap-flap as these flags catch the fever wave. The kids are carrying mini vuvuzelas around and blare it at all non-yellow-wearing pedestrians.

Wondering when matches are taking place? This is THE coolest calendar

First game on Friday on at 16:00, I only get off at 16:30, but will check it out anyway. But will definitely tune into the 20:30 match. Huzzah! For SABC getting the rights, cause I don’t have all the sporting channels anyway. Sucks big soccer balls if don’t have dstv so you can watch something OTHER than soccer – not that you would want to , cause the fever resist all urges to catch up on current events, soaps or home decor programs.

This fever affects your taste buds as well. You body will start craving pap and sous, braaivleis and beer by the quart. Boerewors Rolls and mielies (on the cob) will also sneak into your diet.

If, like me, you still don’t know how to diski dance, follow that link for an illustrated version. I tried to but my work bot is blocking the content. 😉 There are loads of video links  out there, but I managed to find these written steps, but think I’d be better off watching a clip.

You have been warned. The Soccer Fever is spreading. It Is Here!

Here’s mine for this week:

We’re in the Mother City for a long weekend. In the spirit of ayoba this MASSIVE vuvuzela was erected on the unfinished highway (city planners made a calculation error a few years back, and now this unfinished bridge has been ideal for many adverts and movie scenes). Apparently this horn will sound every time a goal is scored at Green Point stadium during the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

“… There are no snakes, no dogs and no dinosaurs.”

Hands up everyone who was surprised to see Cleo in the Top 3? Be honest now. Even SHE was caught off guard. And what a Finale hey. Yoh!!

From the get-go George entertained the socks off me. He brought a whole new level to his beatboxing – 5 different sounds at the same time!! He was my favourite to win, and got a well-deserved second place.

But Darren blew us all away with his moves. I don’t know what you call it, but he did it. He even checked his infinity self out behind him and made a little joke about it. And did I detect some suppressed emotion in his translator’s voice? Congratulations Darren! You deserve that R250,000 prize.

Ai Louwtjie. I SO wanted you to be in the top 3. You got some great exposure and I’m sure the scouts spotted you. Did you have something like a rubber thimble on your finger, or… never mind.

Willem and Louis gave me goose bumps! Tried to sing along, but I would have ruined it for Henk next to me.

Wonder boy Kaylon should definitely audition for So You Think You Can Dance when he’s old enough. I loved the Mango Groove music, ‘cause everyone is a special star.

Last act on was Cleo Filander. I can honestly say that I didn’t recognise last night’s song. Judging by the tears in Ian’s eyes she did it justice.

Do you think the contestants get Lunchbar hampers?

In the end, the best act won. All the best for your plan Darren!

The kids are taking over!

LOVED little Daniel Petersen on those drums! I voted for him 5 times.(i swear only in SA would they limit you to 50 votes per cell# lol)

Congrats Cleo Filander – fabulous voice on that girly! And the phenomenal Darren Rajbal danced his way into SA’s hearts; they are through to the finals on Thursday.

How can you not jump up and join the dance with the energy from Show Stopaz? The colour-coordinated clothes and hair gave it the professional edge.

I missed a bit of Soccer mania and their magic act. These guys must continue outside SAGT; the combination of their two favourites makes for great entertainment. I completely missed Umbumbano cause Amelia was restless, but what I saw on the recap was top notch.

Adino’s and Astro ventroloquism act was super – he wrote a great script, and manipulated the puppet well. But I can’t help cringing that the audience didn’t respond to his jokes. However, I feel his audition was better than last night. Still, all the best to him for future endeavours.

The standard is so high though, it feels like we’re being spoiled with quality acts! What will be in store tonight?

Yoh! How was SAGT tonight!

Unfair for my 2 favs to be in the same semi, but at least both are through to the Final on Thursday.

Congrats George Avakian with your awesome beatboxing, and Louwtjie Rothman, the guitar virtuoso. Louwtjie is also writing exam tomorrow, eish.

All the best to Roses – these guys surprised me with great moves. F.A.I.T.H has a beautiful sultry voice. The kids should go far with their dancing; poor Natasha – I almost cried with you girly.

Can’t wait for the next show.
