    Soccer world cup 2010

    Hi Guys & Gals,

    Any of you planning to visit South Africa for the world cup 2010?

    I live 20 minutes away from the OR Tambo International (Johannesburg) airport.

    It would be cool to meet other AR'ers from overseas in person, don't you think? We could have a few cups of coffee, take a few photo's, talk about AR3(!), yadda, yadda, yadda...

    Cheers,

    Yvan.

    It is a common feeling here. I posted something similar awhile back about a dream about all of us getting together somewhere. Many had the same dream. Yes, it would be wonderful wouldn't it? I think we collectively decided it should be near New Zealand for some reason.

    It is amazing how this wells up in all of us. It would be great.

    for fun, you can read when I had the same dream...

    I think it was called wouldn't it be great... a dream.

    Hey gzair,

    Now this is freaky! I had a look at your thread. It must be some kind of psychological phenomenon like mass hysteria or something

    Well... the world cup kicks of this week and the teams have arrived!

    At the risk of repeating myself, anyone still coming or already here for the soccer world cup? I would sure like to meet a fellow rager or two in person

    Let me know if anyone's interested and I'm sure we can make a plan.

    Thanks Oriane. I only saw part of the concert last night on the TV, recorded the whole thing on my PVR. I plan to watch it later today .

    So..., are you here in SA? :-)

    Not a much of football fan myself. I'd say SA's chances are 50%.

    However, the vibe in SA is fantastic! As I'm sitting in my office typing this, I can hear the people in streets below blowing their vuvuzelas in support of the SA team, ahead of today's match. Maybe the team will manage to pull the proverbial rabbit from the hat, who knows!

    As for the vuvuzelas, I'm not a fan of those either, they are utterly annoying and sounds like millions of agitated hornets nesting in your head. The die hard supporters seem to like them though...
