African Cup...One More Time...Sorry!

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

I know that some of you are crying "enough already!", and I can hear you. But I had to post this.
An Israeli journalist shot a video during the Egypt vs Congo match in the African Cup. His purpose was to document the rising phenomena of girls going to the stadium. Well,...whatever!
The video is a bit boring at times, and voyeuristic all over (and the journalist is really pathetic--watch him trying to sing the national anthem), but will give people who didn't have the chance to attend the matches, especially those who remember the stadium good ol' days (stones, horses, and the works), it will give them an idea of how was it like. Watch it, if only to hear the national anthem sung by 80,000 over-excited Egyptians. Goosebumps!

Why "whatever"? Women usually go to football games in Egypt? They sure don't in Jordan.

I had no idea that was your national anthem. When I was young, we would sing it alongside Marcel Khalifeh and Fairooz's songs. It did give me goosebumps.

i am not saying whatever, because it is normal for girls to go to football matches...it is just that we have been discussing this girl thing in this tournament forever...yes, it was a phenomena!
As for the national anthem thing...it is very interesting what u were saying...I had no idea u knew about it over there...bas I guess fayroz sung many sayed darweesh songs, fa she could've sung this as well
