World Cup news & notes
*Contrary to reports that surfaced Wednesday night in the South African media, Nelson Mandela is apparently not going to attend the World Cup opener next Friday. His grandson Mandla told Agence France-Presse:
"It would be really a challenge to take him out in a cold winter day to go and watch a game of football. We, as South Africans and the international community need to start considering his health. I really know that he'll not be at the opening match."
Mandela turns 92 next month.
*Oh, those sneaky North Koreans! Roster skulduggery nabbed by FIFA.
*Outdoor viewing of World Cup matches in Washington's Dupont Circle is closer to becoming a reality.
