GERMANY & DUTCH OPEN TRAINING 2010 WORLD CUP

Killa waited for this day.
Thanks to some good friends we managed to score tickets for the Open Training Sessions before the World Cup.The teams were arriving,the atmosphere and anticipation building and as a South African we could say now that 2010 is finally Here.The excitement for me was unbearable.So we managed to watch the Dutch and German training sessions….and for Killa pictured above this was a dream come true…you can see why above
Dutch Training. Awesome experience to watch both Germany and Holland.

The Dutch Open training session was a bit of a dissapointment.We were all excited to see the Big names but were told at the last minute that the session has been closed.So we found a hill near the training ground andwatched from afar. Nevertherless seeing the Big names enjoy and pace themselves was a great experience for me as a football fan.It was lighthearted and then myself Mo and Killa drove to Laudiums Atteridgeville Stadium where the Germans were conducting and Open training Session….The fun was about to start.

Killa with the German Ambassador to South Africa

As we got to the stadium we saw hordes of Germans drapedin the German colors entering the stadium. Fantastic.Then we walked around the stadium to the point where the team bus was due to arrive.There was media everywhere.And because Killa was dressed the way he was and I was wearing a Makarapa (The SA Fan Helmet) we were flogged by media and TV Crews,Interviewed on German radio and Television. I was surprised at the Media attention the Makarapa was creating.I was just being snapped up. In this whole fracas we met the German Ambassador to South Africa who was extremely helpful and down to earth.We watched the Germans train, mixed with the fans and had quite a blast.And from that day my Makarapa was to become whati sknown as the “LUCKY MAKARAPA”
