The Black Stars

June 22, 2006

The Ghana Black Stars just eliminated USA in the World Cup. As much as I hate to see the US eliminated from the competition, I am totally rooting for Ghana. Since visiting there, I could see how much national pride goes into their first World Cup appearance, and folks are sacrificing electricity for part of the day to ensure they have power to watch the matches. All the kids play “football” there, much the way everyone used to play baseball / softball / wiffle ball here. This kind of worldwide attention for the country of Ghana and for Africa in general is, IMHO, a good thing. Go Ghana!
