My Olympic viewing started yesterday evening, the ladies football has started, and if I’m honest it was certainly watchable.
Banyana Banyana (The Girls, the men’s side is nicknamed Bafana Bafana, The Boys) are currently ranked a lowly 61st in the world rankings while Sweden, their opponents last night are ranked a mighty 4th. After going 3-0 down early on our girls held the Swedes for the next hour or so. (final result 4-1)
South Africa’s goal was a Beckhamesque lob over the Swedish keeper from almost the centre circle, exquisite.
The first London Laughable Moment arrived earlier than even I expected
The idiots in charge at Hampden Park, Glasgow had the South Korean flag next to the North Korean athlete’s names, you couldn’t make it up!
