Rugby

On Friday evening there was a knock on the door, Freddy opened and there was our neighbour asking if we had any plans for Saturday. The answer was no, whereupon he presented two tickets for the game between The Blue Bulls from Pretoria and The Cheetahs from Bloemfontein. Not only that, it was tickets to a Platinum Suite 🙂

So on Saturday we headed off to Loftus Versveld Stadium in Pretoria and found our suite. Free food and free drinks and a lot of big – no, huge – men who brutally dives into the fight for the ball.

It wasn’t an important game, so the number of spectators was unfortunately quite low, but believe me – the noise levels can become high anyway. South Africans are very passionate about rugby!

I have said for probably 15 years that I want to go to a rugby game and this sure was a nice way to do it. But next time it will have to be when The Lions from Johannesburg play. But we had a great time!

Cricket World Cup 2015

Today, we have moved the office to the loft so that we can sit in front of the TV and work. It’s the quarterfinals of the Cricket World Cup 2015! 🙂 Today, we have to beat Sri Lanka and we got a good start, but there are many hours to go.

Do we understand all the rules? Haha, no not at all! And there are an aweful lot of terms to keep track of overs, wickets, square leg, yorkers the list is very long. But it’s fun to watch and it’s one of South Africa’s national sports.

The team is called The Proteas and let’s hope that captain AB de Villiers leads Amla, Steyn, Miller and all the others to win today.
