Vuvuzela! Thousands of fans cheer Bafana on in the streets of Sandton

Tens of thousands of Bafana fans showed up in Sandton today to wish the team well before they kickoff against Mexico in two days. The power of raw emotion and excitement was infectious.

I was surrounded by vuvuzelas but I could hear and feel only the spirit and proud fervour that thrummed through us all. It may have rung in my ears for five minutes, but it reverberates in my heart still.
Never before have I experienced the power and pride of South Africa so deeply, and I can't wait to see what is to come -
Ke Nako, It's Time.
