On the slowest, most maddening sports day of the year, you just wish that you could either skip the rest of the day or rewind to when there was something truly attention-grabbing. Kind of like what Pharcyde did back in the day.

Well, here's something to tickle your fancy.

On Sunday, Bob Ley of ESPN's underrated program, Outside the Lines, talked about the impact of the 2010 World Cup on South Africa as soccer/football fans anticipate the games in a year's time. While a half-hour program certainly can't begin to encapsulate all of the day-to-day minutae or the budding emotions within South Africans (and maybe the African continent as a whole?), it can certainly build awareness.

So while many of you were probably recovering from an exciting Saturday night, check these clips, courtesty of the recently-launced ESPN YouTube channel.

Videos cannot be embedded from the channel and a five-second ad will appear before each clip.
