Springbok coach bamboozles Australian media


One Australian reporter asked if he could define ''street smart''. Pete wasn't going to fall for that trick.

''Yeah. But I don't think we should spell out everything, because you guys will also become street smart in picking up things.''


Got that? Probably not. As de Villiers gave his farewell bow and the assembled reporters scratched their heads, we had to admit that we just weren't street smart enough to grasp the true meaning. And as with watching all great entertainers, we departed wanting more.

Jordy Smith wins the J-Bay Billabong Pro 2010


In a classic never-say-die effort before the scores for the ride were even in, Smith then paddled into what was to be the last wave of the heat which opened up and allowed him to execute a series of progressive manoeuvres. Needing 7.41 to advance, his score of 7.93 resulted in rapturous applause and a cacophony of vuvuzelas and cheering from the packed partisan crowd basking in the mid-winter sunshine.

  “I’m still not too sure what happened – it’s all a blur,” Smith said of the semifinal. “I got that first one where I did the little grab air that I didn’t think was good, but the judges scored the whole wave pretty well. Then I backed it up and put everything I had into it.”

Keep your Mzansi flag flying high

Be proud to keep your Mzansi flag
flying high, wherever you are.

  • South Africans are the real heroes of 2010. Comment on Danny Jordaan's salute to the fabulous people of South Africa.
  • We couldn't have said it better than Bobby Brown in his open letter to ex-pats abroad. Read his spine tingling story and pass it on. No-one says it better than a South African.
  • An estimated 695 000 jobs were created in the construction, roads,
    transport and the hospitality industry.
  • Even though we didn’t make it passed the first round Bafana Bafana
    inspired us all.
  • The world has been blown away by the hospitality South Africa has shown
    the rest of the world.
  • We’ve hosted the greatest Soccer World Cup yet. And R900 million was spent on Visa cards in this period!

    took the opportunity to explore their historical connection to South Africa.
  • Being black, white or yellow is in the past; we’ve open our hearts to each
    other and the rest of the world.
  • Whoever said white men can’t dance wasn’t referring to the ones in Mzansi.
    We’ve shown them we can, with the Diski Dance.
  • In typical South African style some new born babies have been named with
    2010 World Cup related names: Vuvuzela Mhlongo, Soccer-City Mthembu
  • The Makarapa and our “infamous” Vuvuzela have become international
    soccer fan paraphernalia.
  • Thulani Ngcobo's passion for football has scored him a place in sporting history, after he set a new Guinness World Record for the most FIFA World Cup matches attended by an individual at a single finals tournament. He claimed the record after watching his 21st full match on Friday, 25 June in Pretoria, where Spain beat Chile 2-1.
  • The number of foreigners that visited South Africa during the World Cup
    is estimated to be more than 1 million.
  • The 2010 World Cup has been in our warm hands and this will forever change the world’s perception of our country. South Africa has rolled out ubuntu in abundance.
