IAAF World Championships

All Jamaicans anxiously await the IAAF World Championships scheduled to take place in Helsinki, Finland August 6 – 14, 2005. After the excellent performances by the Jamaicans last year at the Olympics in Athens, Greece the expectation for medals is extremely high.
With athletes such as Veronica Campbell, Brigitte Foster-Hylton, Aleen Bailey, Sherone Simpson, Trecia Smith, Danny Mclarlane, Usain Bolt, Kemel Thompson, James Beckford, Dwight Thomas, Michael Frater and many others Jamaica’s chances to medal are very strong in several events.
It was a huge disappointment to hear of Asafa Powell’s injury at this time. After gaining the title of the worlds fastest man Jamaicans were eager to witness Asafa beat the likes of Americas Justin Gatlin in the 100m dash.
Alas that is not to be, however, I hear talk that he might still run in the men’s 4 x 100m relay. I think most Jamaicans would be just as happy with a win in that event, especially over the Americans.
Again all eyes will be on Veronica Campbell who has not stopped shining since Athens last year. The girls on a whole seem to have their act more together. We will miss Tayna Lawrence in the 4 x 100m relay however; hopefully 35 year old Beverly McDonald will use experience to keep us in the medals.
Over the years Jamaicans have proven to be superior sports men and women. ‘We lickle but we talawa’. Most of the present athletes are experienced and have youth on their side. Barring injuries, we have great expectations for ‘nuff’ medals at the IAAF World Championships.
Things kick off on Saturday August 06, 2005, 2:05am Jamaica time with qualifications for the triple jump. Trecia Smith who is presently ranked in the top three will be first up for Jamaica. So, set your alarms and don’t miss any of the action.
Nuff Love.

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
