I’m what you call a movie buff. When I get spare time from getting high off tranquillizing drugs, getting drunk, or pretending like I’m working, I indulge myself with movies. The best films are those with (a) simple plot (b) action/drama (c) good acting. Last week I decided cancelled my Netflix subscription and simply wait for Orlando Pirates games to get my fix of cinematic entertainment. Their matches have all I’m looking for in a good flick: (a) simple plot – they need to win (b) action/drama – own goals, good goals, goalkeeping mistakes etc. (c) good acting – this is where they fall short, their coach doesn’t have much of a personality and the team’s performances have been below standard. But, I’d take 2 out of 3 any day.
Last night, Orlando Pirates came away 3-2 winners against Polokwane City. The game had it all: bad officiating, red cards, bogus penalties, missed sitters, good goals, and poking of the eyes. Everything you’d want from a football match.
