Children with an Alive & Kicking ball

Month: June 2008

Remi Gaillard

Although he’s a little bit too inconsiderate towards the unwitting “goalkeepers” in this video for my liking, I enjoy the way he uses the urban landscape as his “pitch”. And his skills are pretty decent too.

Thanks for the heads-up, Ian

Preparations in South Africa

A generally optimistic Kenyan view:

2010 promises to be a great year for South Africa if everything goes as planned.
Is South Africa ready to host the 2010 World Cup?

Let’s hope it does.
