1998 WORLD CUP REGGAE BOYZ TO FACE ARTIST ALL STAR TEAM IN NYC

The annual Irie Jam Celebrity Celebrity Soccer Match will again take place on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31 at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, NY. This year the event will however have an exciting new twist as the organisers have drawn on the talented 1998 Reggae Boyz team which made it to the World Cup finals to tackle an Artist All Star team for what is expected to be one of the most eagerly anticipated soccer matches in the tri-state state area in a very long time.

With some of the djs unable to travel because of visa restrictions, the organisers called on veteran dj and dancehall Icon Shabba to spearhead the attack for the artists. Shabba, who is pumped and excited to play this year will be joined by Elephant Man, Spragga Benz, Baby Cham, Wayne Marshall, Red Rat, Mr. Lex and Romaine Virgo.

Among the Reggae Boys who will lace up for the big showdown are former national striker and current Jamaica National coach Theodore Witmore, Warren Barrett, Onandi Lowe, Walter Boyd, Paul tega Davis and Gregory Messam. The winning team will take home the Irie Jam Media/Asylum Nite Club/Western Union trophy and bragging rights for the next year. The event also featured track & field events by the Team Jamaica Bickle sponsored Awesome Power Track Club of Queens, NY.

At half-time the crowd which is expected to number over 10,000 strong will be entertained with performances by some of the reggae acts confirmed for the soccerfest. The event will be hosted by the broadcast team of Aubrey Campbell, Chris Dub Master, DJ Roy of Irie Jam Radio and Ron Muchette of Irie FM and Kingsley ‘Ragashanti’ Stewart of Radio Mona.

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."
