What new words did you learn from the World Cup 2010?

It's pretty amazing how our vocabulary expands. With the World Cup fever, there were even opportunities for us to learn new words. These are some of the words I could think of and their meanings. South Africa national football team or Bafana Bafana vuvuzela or the stadium horn (irritating though) What other words did you learn?

"No money no talk" That seems to be what I normally hear around here. And I just hate it! My usual response would be "So what!"

You know what I mean don't you? What would you say to that Sydney?

My 16 year-old son is SO not into football! He's a trumpeter-in-training (the real thing, with valves.) Off to his class last night, I quipped: Got your vevuzela then, I see." His response? A puzzled: "Dur?"

I'm interested in Shakira's song, and the words attract me most is "waka waka", sounds funny to say although I didn't understand the meaning.

Well apart from the vuvuzela I don't think that I have learnt many new words. However, anyone who was in the location of my home last night when the England match was on would have learnt a LOT of new words
