Was a really interesting sports weekend from my perspective.
The Stormers won their second game on the trot away from home. Who would have thought this. For a team that blows hot and cold, this is a good start to their tour in Australasia. Lets just hope they keep it up but to be honest, the first 2 games was against weaker teams.
Tiger Woods did it again by winning the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational with a birdie in the 72nd hole. Woods tied Ben Hogan with the third most PGA TOUR career victories with 64. The amazing thing is that we are in March already and Tiger has not lost this year yet. Every tournament that he has started this year, he has won. This must be real scary for other players when they see his name on the entry list.
Formula 1 stated this weekend in Melbourne, Australia and what a disastrous weekend for the defending champions, Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen. The race was won by Hamilton in his McLaren. I just hope this is not an indication of the season to come, since then it is going to be a very boring season. At least the BMW team did show some improvement from last year.
And the Proteas (South Africa cricket team) moved to the number 1 spot on the ODI world rankings going past Australia. I do not know whether that really means anything since they got there by beating the worst test team, Bangladesh, in the world. But I suppose it is the same for all teams so it is something.
On a personal front .. what a hectic week. As mentioned earlier, I started a new job and what a hectic week. I still had some stuff to handover from my previous engagement to the person that is taking over from me so had to commute between Cape Town and Bellville a couple of times. Coming week will be more of the same and then things should start to get back to normal. Good luck Margie with all the new stuff. The new job is going as well as can be expected. Attending lots of meetings and get to know a lot of new faces, names and roles. A big plus is that it takes me now only about 10 minutes from my house to the office.
This all did not leave much time for social life. I will try to get some relaxing time in over this weekend by going to brunch this morning to catch up with a friend.
My son is off to Stellenbosch varsity next year and he did not make it into residence so we are now frantically looking for accommodation in Stellenbosch. If anybody know of something decent and not to expensive then please either leave a comment or contact me via my contact page.
Here is a photo I took earlier this morning from my balcony. What an amazing place I live in. Image: Marius Bock taken with Nokia N80
