In Pictures And Hideous Vuvuzelas: South Africa And Mexico Kickstart The Platitudes

FOOTBALL’S World Cup has arrived in South Africa. South Africa’s Siphiwe Tshabalala scored the tournament and his sides first goal in a game against Mexico. When all the hacks and marketeers have gone home, the memories will of the players. Football fans know that football does not need couching in terms of healing a nation – hell, healing an entire continent. We don’t need to listen to the broadcast media reporting from the Heart of Darkness, all wide-eyed with the joy or misery of it. We do not need to be told how noisy it is – we can see the mouths puffing into mini alphorns and detect sound of a plague of gnats trapped in Venetian blind. Football is just what it is. Enjoy.
