Last Saturday (9/12) was Soweto derby time again! This one was a little more special than most, because it was the last match at FNB Stadium before it goes into refurbishment phase ahead of 2010. I dragged Dave, Romy, Hazard and Pharmy along with me this time (yes, to the heart of Soweto. And we left after the sun had set. Shocking I KNOW!).
We were supposed to meet the Berkowitzes and their crazy bunch, but couldn't find them after arriving at different times. No surprise really - 80,000 odd people is a fair bit, and the vuvuzelas are loud enough to make mobile phones useless. Anyway, Pirates scored in the opening 10 minutes or so, and were holding onto that for what would've been a very unlikely victory (Pirates are in the relegation zone at the moment). But, right at the end of the 4th minute of extra time, Chiefs equalised through a Shaun Bartlett header. Half the stadium - the gold and white half - erupted. The other half - black and white - was livid. Rock on...
