As some are this morning wondering why they over-indulged.
A particular boxing fan must be remembering part of Madiba's famous words: "Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another" for something different.
This after having been given a hot back-hand clap by a highly irritated boxing commentator Dumile Mateza in the ring on Friday night. Eina!
The excited fan had jumped into the ring to hug his victorious hero (Simphiwe Nonqayi) during a live TV interview.
No wonder some ringside VIPs who were waiting their turn to be interviewed by the "Grinning Master" looked abashed.
For the fan the lesson must surely be "never, never and never again".
