On Father's Day this year I was so excited when I received a ticket to the Vodacom Challenge Final. The reason for my joy.... Spurs!!!!! Yes, my team. They were coming to South Africa to play in the tournament.
I had seen them play before in the very same tournament back in 2007, and had made a trip to White Heart Lane in London (Spurs home ground) back in 2009. Now two years later, Spurs back in SA. Hmmmm, seems like things work in 2 year cycles.... I wonder what could be on the cards in 2013 then???
It was great on the day, as they brought out quite a strong squad, as this was all pre-season stuff for them. I got to see the likes of EPL footballer of the year, Bale, Modric, Crouch and Defoe to name but a few. One never knows when you will have the opportunity to see them play live again, so you just try and soak everything up, as much of it as you can.
I had an awesome day!!!! Thanks to my wife and my boys for an awesome gift and opportunity! I don't think you all know how much I enjoyed it and appreciated it.
Our competition on the day... Orlando Pirates. As for the result... not important.... well maybe because WE WON!!!!!
