    Unexpectedly exciting or boring as hell, I'll be decked out in all my orange gear!


    I'm so excited for the cup to start!
    I like Cameroon's chances against the Oranje's no-defense. Eto'o all day, baby.

    Rio isn't even much of a loss if any these days.

    When Ledley King, who has no cartilage in his knee, is Rio's best replacement, then Rio is a big loss.

    King has the speed, but he's another knee injury waiting to happen.

    Well I have arrived, I flew out with KLM yesterday and what an atmosphere on the plane, two thirds were dressed in dutch orange the rest of us were a nice mix of people from other countries. I am utterly surprised at how many Americans are here for the world cup, they are all very knowledgeable and completely in the spirit of the event.

    Tickets took me literally 30 secs to pick up, I walked straight up to a machine swiped my card and in 15 secs all tickets were printed and out. No mad crowds either.

    The stadium here in Cape Town looks awesome.....

    I would suggest this statistic is not far off.

    Country % Rise in travel to South Africa for World Cup 2010 period


    USA 440%
    Spain 409%
    Brazil 399%
    France 331%
    Australia 308%
    Portugal 272%
    Germany 250%
    Netherlands 226%
    England 206%
    Italy 134%
    The majority here looks to be English, but South Africa has over 500 000 ex-pat English people here so it seems to be misleading. The Americans are here in force, I was chatting to 4 Americans on the plane over, they were wearing traditional South African mining hard-hats with vuvuzelas(Those loud African horn things) on top. It is awesome to see this in Africa. I was sitting next to an American on the flight over and he was from California. I would suggest it takes some travelling to get here from California, 12 hours to Amsterdam, 2-4 hours at the airport and then another 12 hours to Cape Town.

    It's time to make your group stage picks! Pick each round, and the first team is who you think will win the group, while the second team is who you think the runners-up will be! Good luck!

    A-Mexico, France...
    B- Greece, Argentina
    C- USA, England
    D- Germany, Serbia
    E- Netherlands, Japan
    F- Paraguay, Italy
    G- Portugal, Brazil
    H- Spain, Chile
