Things just happen...
So Orlando Pirates are now being kitted in red.
Yoh! Yoh! Yoh!
We can't believe.
No mentioning our nay. We also heard it from our usually unreliable resources, you see.
This old toppie, who called us last Wednesday after the Manchester United and Pirates game unashamedly told us he was a Buccaneer through and through. He believes that the club's amadlozi (ancestors) must be turning in their graves.
This, he said, was all because of the new generation at the club and their crazy ideas. "You do not tamper with tradition and culture. We have always known Pirates to dress in black and white - with black dominating.
"That is why we called them Ezimnyama ngenkani or Ezimnyama zikamagebhula." he pointed out.
"Now we are going to have to say Amabhakabhaka, ezibomvu ngenkani or ezibomvu zikaMagebhula."
He said this is going to confuse even the Moroka Swallows supporters who were the original Ezibomvu ngenkani fanatics. The poor Birds now have to also go out and choose another colour.
There is also Mzion and Makhalanjalo's white fellow supporter, whose name we don't know, whose Bucs' war cry was "ezimnyama lenkau" . He will also have to adapt.
Someone told us that the whitey is happy that Pirates are now going to be officially known as the "Red Devils".
