Ryan Sandes, winner of the 2009 Jungle Marathon in Brazil, returns to South Africa tomorrow, arriving at Cape Town International Airport (domestic arrivals) at 11.40am.
The big question, however, is whether ANC Youth League president Julius Malema will be there to greet SA’s newest hero.
Malema wasn’t able to make the Springbok return from the Tri-Nations, but he did drag himself off to greet Caster Semenya in August.
Like Semenya, Sandes is a runner. And my theory is that because Malema obviously prefers athletes to rugby players, he’ll surely be there … NOT!!!!
French soccer star Franck Ribery can thank his lucky stars that his parents didn’t call him Bob. Can you imagine being listed as BRibery all your life?
Anyway, names can provide a great source of fun when making anagrams. For example, my name can produce amusing terms like: Is a void sad can; A sad vision cad; Disco via a sand.
Check out these other names … enjoy!

There’s not much of school work I can remember, but one that stands out was the Starndard Seven lessons on Nazi Germany, the rise of Adolf Hitler and one of humanity’s worst dictatorships.
It was fascinating stuff, but I couldn’t comprehend how people could blindly follow a man without showing a sign of rational thinking. The lesson we were supposed to be learning back then is to ensure that we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past.
The supporters of Leonard Chuene and Julius Malema could do with a crash course on the rise of Nazism, although they seem to have perfected it already. A meeting by athletes was disrupted at the weekend, and a critic of Chuene emailed me claiming he received a threatening phone call last week. Coincidence or not, but a Nedbank branch in Randburg caught fire this (Monday) morning.
Can’t Chuene see the divisions being caused by his decision to stay?
I hope this matter is resolved permanently soon – surely it can’t continue like this!
Not that we doubted it, but ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema underlined his stupidity by slamming Nedbank for terminating their contract with Athletics SA a year early.
The reason Nedbank pulled out was because of the controversy hanging over ASA because of their inept handling of the Caster Semenya debacle. Now Malema is vowed to mobilise the masses against Nedbank for their withdrawal.
Had Malema bothered to mobilise one or two of his brain cells, he might have remembered that the Constitution of this great country enshrines various rights, including the right of association. Nedbank are surely free to associate with whomever they wish.
ASA president Leonard Chuene, on the other hand, admitted lying to the nation for his role in the Semenya debacle. The Constitution protects access to information, and I would argue that Chuene contravened the Constitution when he lied, and lied, and lied.
Malema instead decides to make this purely about race. What a fool he is – but we knew that already!
