nelson mandela and arjen robben

Monday, July 5th, 2010

according to the new york times, nelsen mandela spent 18 of his 27 years imprisoned on robben island. so we’re sorta wondering what he and saint bono are thinking about while watching the netherland’s key striker arjen robben as he plays during the first world cup in africa. the csmonitor notes that the south africans who speak afrikaans, a dutch dialect left over from colonialism, are giddy with delight that the oranje might win their first world cup. since being in south africa, the dutch team has donated a football pitch to the city of johannesburg.
