2010 French Team arrive in Knysna!

We were up at 5am, along with a thousand or so other soccer fans, to welcome the French Team to Knysna. We stood in the cold for two hours for a three second glimpse of the speeding French bus. Was is worth it? Hell, yeah!

A lot of people got up before sunrise on a Saturday to welcome the French players.

The symbol of African supporters, Vuvuzela's are going to make this the most festive, and noisiest, cup ever.

The Sedgefield contingent!

    What wonderful photos! That looks pretty lively for 5:30 a.m. – and I still get surprised at our opposite seasons.

    If I were the French, I’d be counting myself lucky just to be staying in such a beautiful place for six weeks. Win some games, sure – but what an experience whatever happens.

    Who knows – I may watch a soccer game before it’s all over!

      Hi Linda! Knysna was such a popular choice that we are hosting two teams – we have the Danish as well!

      The World Cup is more than sport, more than soccer – it’s operatic drama. There are always incidents over which people speculate for months. The most famous player in the world head-butting an opponent for insulting his sister, ref’s making suspect decisions, own goals. . . always something.

      The players are prima donnas and there is always some kind of scandal. A lot of them are exceptionally good looking, the Italian team especially. Vain too!

      Bafana don’t have a hope of winning, they’ll probably get knocked out in the first round. But, you never know, we always hope for a miracle. . .
