    It feels like just yesterday that we were all dressed up, walking the fan walk, blowing our vuvuzelas, chatting to absolutely every international visitor we encounter along the packed fan walk and generally just high on the gees of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We loved it, we lived it, and we kind of miss it.
