Follow Friday - 21 January 2011

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View I love Fridays because I normally get to meet a lot of great new people and find brilliant and interesting new blogs! And phew! I haven't been this glad it is Friday for a while! Getting my hair done and doing some shopping and lots and lots of reading this weekend! Good weekend to look forward to! Hope all of you have a great time as well!

This week's question is: Who do you cheer for?

Well... seeing as I'm way down here in South-Africa my answers might not make much sense to most of you. South Africans mostly love rugby, cricket and soccer so those are the sports that I'll focus on.

Ironically my favourite Soccer Team is not South African, but German, due to a stint as an exchange student in Germany. In soccer I cheer for Bayern Munich!

My favourite rugby team is a the provincial team from the Western Cape and is called the Western Province (in the Currie Cup serie) or the Stormers (in the Super 14 series). Rugby supporters in South Africa are fiercely loyal towards their teams and arguments about teams happen frequently when big games are played! Hehe! That's inbetween the braaing and biltong!

My favourite cricket team is none other than our own national team, the Proteas! They have their ups and downs like any team but are one of the teams which our country is very proud of.

Well that's my picks for today! Who do you cheer for?

I have heard Bayern Munchen a lot in Champions League. But never watch them play on the field

My sister is a huge German soccer fan. I'll have to ask her about Bayern Munchen. I've always wanted to know the rules about cricket. It looks like such an interesting game!

Thanks for the visit and the follow! I'm following you as well.

I’m a sports fan only if the games work around my hectic reading schedule. I would love to experience a Rugby game in person. have a great weekend!

I'm a fan of Florida Gators football and Miami Heat basketball. I grew up in the Caribbean and remember cricket very well, but it's not very popular in the US. I'm your newest follower!

Who do I cheer for? When I follow sports at all (and that hasn’t been much lately) I follow people and teams who impress and inspire me.

My answers are all over the map (literally!) but all perfectly understandable once explained. Follow me over to my blog and read all about it -

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

Cute blog! I'm a new follower as well. :]

Can't say I've ever seen rugby in action, but I imagine it's intense and fun.
