The year has just started, but I have my first nominee for the football fanatic of the year 2005.
The fans of Asante Kotoko. Last Sunday, as the final of the African Confederations Cup between Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak went into penalty kicks, the excitement, nerves and euforia led to dozens of Kotoko fans simply fainting. On TV, I saw many people being carried away by medics.
While I certainly hope they all are doing well, and recuperating well (not only in health but also in spirit), the passion shown for the game and their team, should make them the very first nominee.
