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.

Remembering MJ

Hey, peoples. I know, I know. I disappeared on you again, and for that I apologise. For those of who who still check in to the blog regularly, thanks for your loyalty. And thanks so much for your emails as well.

Anyhoo, enough about me. In two hours, the world will mark the first anniversary of the death of one of the greatest entertainers of out time, the inimitable Michael Jackson.

Tomorrow several of the music stations will no doubt be paying tribute to MJ, and I'll be singing along and blaming it on the boogie with the rest of your fans, MJ.

You are missed, King of Pop.
