Do any of you
watch cricket? No.. I'm not talking about the little insect that
chirps in the night. I'm talking about the actual sport. I was watching
the Cricket One Day International Test Series between England vs.
Sri Lanka and also the game between West Indies vs. India Test Series.
During the England game, (that was being played in England) it was
nice to see that in the crowd, there was a person wearing an nWo
shirt. (thanks!) The West Indies match was played in Trinidad,
where the West Indies Team defeated India once and lost twice to
them losing the series.
sport that no North Americans care about, lets move onto another
sport that no North Americans care about.. and that is... Soccer!
(aka football or futball everywhere else)
Yep, the World Cup is here and the rest of the planet is
all psyched up. I was cheering for Team Canada but recently found
out that they didn't make it. So how am I going to choose a team
to root for now? Well.. here's a simple solution... my cousin in
Toronto, (hi Lisa!) emailed me the "Women of the World Cup".
That's right.. I am gonna choose my team by the girl who is representing
So here we go!
Below are the fantastic women each representing their home country
team. This apparently is an approach to create interest in the World
Cup. (or is it?) Well, you can choose with me below:
in the World Cup that are not represented are: Belgium, Cameroon,
China PR, Costa Rica, Croatia, Denmark, Ecuador, Republic of Ireland,
Japan, Korea Republic, Nigeria, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi
Arabia, Senegal, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey
and the USA.
the umm.... fan support and umm.. (ahem).. amazing players, I am
going to root on for MEXICO!
Last week, I
was listing the different flyers from the after parties of the Orlando
Caribbean Carnival. But there was one that really stood out from
the rest of them. It was a jam I didn't hit for reasons like: DJ
MEAT was playing there, there were no real live acts performing
and that it appeared to be more likely a place to get shot than
to drink shots.
One of the
items that also had me laughing was definitely the flyer. If you
look closely at the city scape, there are 2 distinct buildings.
A Scotiabank building and a Bank of Montreal building. Now there's
only one city that has both of those towers beside each other. And
its NOT ORLANDO! Orlando has about a total of what -- 2 skyscrapers?!
This backdrop is obviously Toronto. Why are they trying to play
like Orlando is really a big city? Who are they fooling? Why don't
they just put a big backdrop of Disney's Cinderella Castle and just
be honest, because one of the things I have learned about Orlando,
is that "Mickey" runs this town. When Mickey says that
bars should close at 2am, then the rest of Orlando must follow.
Yep... it's like that.
I have been grooving to this new artist called Michelle Branch.
Her sound is similar to Alanis Morisette but with a new kick. That
would probably be because they share the same record label, Madonna's
own Maverick Records. Her "new" song is called "All
You Wanted". Not only is she easy on the eyes, I think she
will be one of the next big up and coming performers. I can't wait
to check her out in concert. Check her out here,
if this is the first time you are hearing about Michelle.
Did you know
is the fastest growing choice of beverage
and is expected to outsell soda pop in the next 10 years? That's
right, the same drink that is supposed to be FREE is being charged
to us for $1.00 a bottle!! At this rate, I definitely predict us
silly humans will be actually buying AIR at your local convenient
stores within the next 25 years.
