I got fired from rugby… So watch Naas Botha and Corne Krige’s predictions instead.

CPFzQ0QWcAAKs93Anyone that remembers Loftus stadium as “Minolte Loftus”, Knows Pretoria well.

I was the announcer in the top ” Losie” box at the rugby that summer. A proud broadcaster for Jacaranda 94.2 then, and also the only black female live commentator. It was fun.  People loved my Afrikaans, and I loved the attention.

My microphone from the box was loud enough, that even if you were parked 4 streets away from Kirkness Road, you could still hear me announce the live scores to my 50 000 + audience. Mostly men. The love beer, and some of their Bulls T-shirts were a bit tight from the wash.  They also loved their wives. And they loved the Bulls Babes.

Then, my next script arrived, and I had to welcome a few of the VIP s.

I read:

Also, a warm Welcome to the president of the Rugby Union ,Rudolph Straeuli 

( this is of course the wrong title, wrong day, wrong place, wrong script,wrong freekin announcement, wrong everything! The script writer apologised )

Rudolph August Wilkens Straeuli (born 20 August 1963 in Pretoria, South Africa) was in fact a South African rugby union player and coach. NOT THE RUGBY UNION PRESIDENT.

Needless to say. I never saw Loftus again. Not even as a spectator. (Upside down face)

And then I started playing golf.

So….I am making no predictions for the world cup. Instead I asked Naas Botha and Corne Krige to give it a try. Watch the vid.  Esther Beth, Hubby and I will be cheering from the living room! ha! GOOOOOOOOOO Bokkeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
