South Africans have a tendency to go overboard when doing things.
It is 11 years ago now that Bafana Bafana returned from Tunisia with their tails between their legs like a canine that had been caught stealing.
New kid on the block Siyaya TV recently successful broadcasted the Bafana Bafana Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) warm-up match against Zambia at Orlando Stadium.
The year could not have started better for the 10-year-old Khayelitsha-based Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy.
