Back to Joburg on Mango air(think South West but in BRIGHT orange planes.

The second game had less problems on the journey as they actually knew what they were doing by now. They took attendance, told us where to meet etc.

The Game was exciting but again we gave up an early goal then another. With the score 0-2 at halftime it wasn't looking good. The team that scores first wins 85% of the time and a two goal deficit was huge. After a shot of redbull at halftime the US team comes out fired up and scores one after another. Two goals tie it up and take the wind out of the opponents. Then a third goal flashes into the net and the stadium erupts. We've pulled off the impossible and come back to win the game. WHAT the ref disallowed it? For what? no offsides. He wont say. The first of our many disallowed goals. A conspiracy I say.

A quick bus rid back from Ellis park and I head up to the room to throw our stuff in while my Dad secures a good spot on the couch in the bar for the 830 game. Our clock revolved around the game cycle more than anything else.

Ough oh. Wheres my wallet. Long story short it was nicked as they say at the game. Bummer. I've been so careful always locking things in the hotel safe and putting my wallet in my front pocket sometimes even walking in crowds with my hand in my pocket on top of the wallet. Let my guard down at the game and it cost me. Lost some cash but also my credit cards. Couple phone calls and visits to websites and they were cancel led.

We book a last minute trip to Kruger national park (hey Dad I need your credit card....)
