Yebo SA 2010! Post June 16th

So apart from the game, which was oh-so painful to watch, South Africa-Uruguay on June 16th was interesting in other ways to me.

The pride and bitter-sweetness of spectators at Loftus Versfeld signing the South-African national anthem. In part in Afrikaans.

And in contrast, an amusing article on Hayibo.com* talking about Generation I-Pod’s attitude to June 16th: SA Celebrates Youth Day by, Like, Doing Whatever!

*Hayibo! loosely translates as “Wow!” or “No way!”
