Soccer - The beautiful game

For the past few weeks, when I'm not working or busy with the family, it's all about World Cup football from South Africa.

And I'll tell you, it ain't only the vuvuzelas that have my head buzzing. Have you seen some of the footballers in this year's championships? Wuhloss, no wonder they call soccer the beautiful game! Here are some of my personal faves. Of course, I respect their football skills, don't get tie up. I'm just sayingggg.

Fabio Canavarro - Italy. I real vex that Italy get knock out of the game, 'cause not only is it one of my favourite teams, but I'm gonna miss the team's hottie captain, Fabio Cannavaro. Aye, carramba!

Kevin-Prince Boateng - Ghana. This 23-year-old Ghanian has plenty of flair, and his team made it into the second round, so more Boateng for everybody!

Cristiano Ronaldo - Portugal. The highest paid man in football is pretty dazzling to watch on the field, and off-field he isn't so hard on the eyes, either...

Kaka - Brazil. I love me some Brazil, and I especially love me some Kaka. He's known as a peaceful soul, so the fact that he got red carded in Brazil's last game against the Ivory Coast came as a shock to many.

Oguchi Onyewu - USA. The USA is hardly my fave team at the World Cup, but there's no denying that defender Oguchi has something a lil extra.

There’s No Love

They embrace and greet
Have moments on their feet
Exchanging social graces
Right afterwards their faces
Emotionless and they start
Smooth exertion from the heart

Never ending maneuverability
On top, out front, legs, hips all in unity

Life’s passion and strong sweating backs
Only counteracted with complementing attacks
Victory comes with ecstatic screams at nil
Even though the football game ended 4-0, There’s No Love still
