Cape Town went Springbok mad today, showing the true spirit of Capetonians. With schools though out the city and surrounding areas closing early thousands of fans lined the streets and greeted the Springboks home after their historic World Cup Win in France 2 weeks ago. It was amazing to see the people going mad in the streets and how appreciative the national team was of their supporters. The open top bus left City Hall at 11:30 this morning and by the time I had hopped on a scooter and navigated the chaotic streets ‘The Big green England Squashing Machine’ had already made the turn from Adderley into Strand Street. The entire city was blocked off to traffic and people left the comfort of their air conditioned offices to go scream and shout at their rugby hero’s. Shosholoza rang out amongst Vuvuzela blasts and every so often a “Jake for President” could be heard. After touring the city streets the Bok’s made their way to Newlands Rugby ground where 50 000 well wishers packed into the stadium. On days like these, its great to be South African. Well done Bokke!
