CNN Hong Kong Operations Supervisor Matthew Booth will attempt to watch every match from South Africa on television. Can he do it without being fired/divorced/committed to an asylum? Follow his updates here, as he becomes more and more incoherent from extreme sleep deprivation.
HONG KONG - I don't think I would be exaggerating when I say that today is the greatest day in the history of mankind.
But then the first day of every World Cup is the greatest day in the history of mankind... until the next World Cup.
CNN’s David McKenzie will spend the entire month of the World Cup traveling around South Africa in a Winnebago and taking the pulse of the host country, the first nation on the continent to stage sport’s most illustrious oocasion.
As part of CNN’s Team Winnebago, McKenzie will tell the story of the World Cup through the voices of South Africa. From Cape Town to Graaff Reinet and Qunu to Soweto, Team Winnebago will cover more than 3,000 kilometers of highway, dusty tracks and snow-capped mountains during this month-long road trip.
Check in regularly to see the latest on McKenzie’s journey as South Africa – and the rest of the world – is transformed into Planet Football for the next 31 days and 64 matches.
