The Football Juggler - South Africa 2010?
Which is why I want everyone to know about a very cool artist we work with - someone very different. Eric Borgman, the Football Juggler!
He introduces himself with the statement:
So what do Pele, Cruyff, Maradonna, Borgman & Beckham have in Common? TheyÂre all Ball-boys!
Erik juggles 5 balls at once. Not just one - no - he has full control over 5 balls, all the time!
Erik, who is based in the Netherlands, has been entertaining stadium audiences - and of course especially football fans - across Europe for many years, but has always been a firm favourite to show his stuff to his home crowd at the Ajax Amsterdam football events.
I know that we have been promised Carlos Alberto Parreira to coach Bafana Bafana, and that he is our best hope of making it past the first round, but I think Erik would be an awesome assistant coach! He would only have to teach Bafana to master one ball...
Hell!Forr that matter, maybe we should even suggest him to Jake White for the Bokke! I've seen quite a few players struggle with butter-fingers...
Here is a small studio snippet:
Where ever Erik Borgman is on the ball, he leaves his audience roaring - let South Africa shout Laduuuuuma Erik in 2010!
