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.

Three Ministers

Three ministers - a Presbyterian, a Methodist, and a Southern Baptist and their wives were all on a cruise together. A tidal wave came up and swamped the ship, and they all drowned. The next thing you know, they're standing before St.Peter.

As fate would have it, the first in line was the Presbyterian and his wife. St. Peter shook his head sadly and said, "I can't let you in. You were moral and upright, but you loved money too much. You loved it so much, you even married a woman named Penny."

St.Peter waved sadly, and poof! Down the chute to the 'Other Place' they went. Then came the Methodist. "Sorry, can't let you in either," said Saint Peter "You abstained from liquor and dancing and cards, but you loved food too much.

You loved food so much, you even married a woman named Candy!" Sadly, St. Peter waved again, and whang! Down the chute went the Methodists.

The Southern Baptist turned to his wife and whispered nervously, "It ain't looking good, Fanny."
