South Africa v Mexico, 2010 World Cup: Open Thread

June 11, 2010 - Durban, SOUTH AFRICA - epa02196328 South African street artists perform during a parade in Durban, South Africa 11 June 2010. The FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup kicks off on June 11 with the opening ceremony followed by the tournament's first match between host South Africa and Mexico. Durban will host it's first match between Germany and Australia on 13 June.

Finally. It. Is. Here. The 2010 World Cup kicks off today with the first match up between South Africa and Mexico.

I’m picking South Africa and Mexico to draw in this one. Mexico should win, but buoyed by the incredible support of the South African nation, I think the South Africans will rise to the occasion and grab an equalizer.

Before, during and after the opening game of the 2010 World Cup between South Africa and Mexico, feel free to share your insight and opinions in the comments section below.

Of course, I’m particularly interested in seeing how ESPN does in terms of their broadcast. ESPN commentators today will be Martin Tyler and Efan Ekoku.

I’ll be at Wowies in Boca Raton watching the match. I’m looking forward to meeting you in person, so feel free to stop by. Wowies is at 7036 W. Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, FL 33433.
