Mandela Moment!

Nelson Mandela went out onto the field in a golf cart, wearing a black coat and his gentle smile, and waved to the crowd. The civil rights icon and former South African president turns 92 next week and is very frail, so major effort for him to be here . Poignant moment, although it would have been better without the vuvuzelas, but I guess that is how they celebrate here, so maybe it was ok. Hope you all got to see it!
