President Obama to come to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup

Yesterday we received confirmation that United States President Barack Obama had officially accepted an invitation to attend the opening ceremony of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup that will be held on June 11, 2010 at 100 000 capacity Soccer City in Johannesburg.How I wish they had it here in Cape Town instead, oh well, we can't have it all :-/ But based on today's weather, perhaps it a good thing they are not having it in Cape Town, winters are not pleasant here. Anyway its no surprise as Obama is known to be a soccer fan and his eldest daughter, for some reason, plays soccer. The opening game hasn't been announced yet, but it'll either be the defending world champions Italy or hosts Bafana Bafana, SA National Team.
