“The love of one’s country is a splendid thing….
But why should love stop at the border…?”

So, today marks a highly anticipated day throughout South Africa – – – & I believe in a lot of other countries as well!!!! Today was the kick-off of the Rugby World Cup 2011. Myself not being at all bothered about the sport makes me socially inapt (at least in this country!!!). 🙂 When I logged onto facebook today, my whole screen exploded with images of the south african flag, or a springbok, or both!!!! Crazy…. 😉
I decided that today’s post – – – to keep in the spirit of the event – – – should be at least related to the big RWC!!!!
I took this pic a few years back with my normal samsung digital camera at a game between the Springboks and Ireland/Wales (or someone of sorts… oops!!!)
