I'm not a soccer fan but I know this is very important to the country (and my baby lives there....Hi baby!). It's a beautiful country so I wish them all the best and will keep my fingers crossed for no violence or any other troubles while the world is watching. It would be a shame for those that would like nothing more than to hi-jack the tournament for their own political agenda and in the process, tarnish the countries reputation in the world. The people of South Africa are wonderful but some of their government factions, downright hateful. Sounds like some people we know in the US!
