For the first time since we arrived in South Africa, the excitement of the people here has been dimmed a bit after South Africa lost 3-0 tonight to Uruguay. The hotel employees here, and we are sure the fans throughout the country, are a little somber as the Bafana Bafana now have a huge uphill battle to make the second round. Is it still possible? Of course it is! But the South Africans will need a lot of help. We know that if the match against France on June 22 is the last one for the hosts, the fans will certainly be out in force to cheer on their team.
