My Scrumptious Sporty Weekend

25 February 2013, 16:00

If there is one thing that South Africa gets right, it is sports. Always filled with thriller and very interesting turn of events, it is like watching your favorite action series. I call South African sports my “Nikita”.

My weekend started with the rugby game between the Blue Bulls and the Stormers, it was a very tense game when it started with Stormers pushing forward most of the time and the possibilities of tries from them nearly stressed me to my grave but I have to proudly say it was good to see my boys holding on and trying to go forward as much as they can. Steyn deserved that man of the match title, he out did himself and he delivered on those kicks, not much to be desired from Jantjies. Though he is one of my favorite young rugby players, he had quiet an off and very disappointing night. The most important thing is that we won (Bulls).

In the middle of all the dramatic rugby events, we had the Proteas showing the Pakistan what it means to be the number #1 team. They had been carrying themselves with so much discipline in all the test matches so far and I have to say I cannot wait for the ODI’s, though we struggle a bit there but I believe we can do it. Remember the New Zealand banner from its own supporters? It read “even Bryce cannot save us from this Pure Proteas”.

The difficult yet the most refreshing part of the weekend was when the mighty buccaneers suffered a serious beating from FET boys, I watched the game in difficult circumstances as I was happy they were getting a kick where it hurts the most but I was with a diehard Pirates supporter, got to say I had to restrain myself, after I jokingly and confidently predicted they were going to lose 4-1 to Maluti and the results didn’t let me down. It was great to see very experienced PSL champs being humbled by young boys.

Though I was happy about all the results for the weekend, I was a bit worried about the game between Kaizer Chiefs and Wits, we suffered greatly in the past in the hands of this young men and after I silently celebrated Pirates loss, I had to pray that Chiefs win as it was going to turn into a bitter sweet one for the Pirates, let alone the friend I was with. I am happy it all turned out well.

In the mist of our weekdays being filled by Oscar’s puzzle and the SONA debate, at least as South African’s we had a chance to relax and watch our local talent. It was indeed a very tasty, delicious, scrumptious sporty weekend.
