Entertainment & Culture Discussion / upcoming Local Sport Newspaper
« on: July 14, 2012, 10:14:51 PM »
A sport newspaper based in Trinidad & Tobago that captures local sporting events at a community level.

Bobby's Bar in Diego Martin has been renamed/ tagged goLocal @Bobby's. The bar changed management in February 2011 and is now under managed by Babash Media and Events, run by a young returning Trinidadian from London Sean Annandsingh. Babash was actually a promoter of Trini events for a few years.

The space once a very popular location has now been reborn and is fast becoming the home of local arts and culture. The walls are hung with paintings by local artist Joel Lijertwood (all pieces are available for sale) and the stage area painted by both artiste Joel LIjertwood and musician/artiste Nickolai Salcedo of the band Gyazette. The background scene depicts many local known faces from Mungal Patesar, 3 Canal, Kitchener etc.

Local bands now have an additional space to showcase their talent every Saturday night and a few odd Wednesdays. On any given night it's quite possible to find a group of musicians just hanging out only to break into a lil jam session. The stage has been graced with the presence of Orange Sky, John Blood, Gyazette, Kin Sound System (formerly Kin Sibling Rivalry), 12 the Band, tassa groups, rhythm sections and many others.

The spot also has an in-house kitchen (fondly known as Homewreckers) that serves some delicious cutters on evenings: corn soup, pepper wings, seasoned steak fries, geera pork/wings/ chicken neck, gizzard, curry duck and provision, oildown... each night has a specific menu.

Note that while the establishment ensures that all performers are paid, the performances are free to the public so be sure to stop by on your visit home for the coldest beers at TT$10., delicious cutters, entertaining company and some local music...

security is present and parking is available!

Football / "What can we do to make your football experience better?"
« on: November 06, 2008, 09:44:14 AM »
I recieved this message from a member of the facebook event SocaWarriors Vs Cuba.

"Hi All:

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation is trying to get a better appreciation of what its football patrons would like to see for 2009.

So we are hoping you will take the time to answer one simple question.

"What can we do to make your football experience better?"

Looking forward to your comments and suggestions.

Thanks everyone."

Please share your thoughts.

Football / Yellow card that had everyone seeing red
« on: June 25, 2008, 06:47:29 PM »

Video evidence appears to have wrecked any chance that Bermuda might of had of getting the game against Trinidad and Tobago replayed.

The tape of the game has shown that contrary to popular belief Aurtis Whitley, the Trinidad captain, was not booked twice, with Makan Hislop, the defender, recieving a yellow card that was originally believed to have been shown to Whitley.

That was the only real grounds that the Bermuda Football Association would have had for an appeal with FIFA. Now any appeal would now have to be based upon the dispute surrounding Trinidad's second goal, and given the confusion surrounding that version of events, it is unlikely that, that appeal would be successful.

While the footage shows that Kwame Steede, who was in the process of being substituted for Jemeiko Jennings at the time of the goal, had not yet left the pitch, the referee does not appear to have authorised the substitution.

If he had done so, under the laws of the game, he would have to stop play until that substitution had taken place. However, there are no grounds for appeal if it was a mistake by the fourth official, as it now appears to have been.

Whatever route the BFA choose to take, they are running out of time if they wish to try and appeal. The statute of limitations on an appeal to FIFA is normally set at 72 hours, a deadline which would be reached tonight.

And an insider in the BFA is suggesting that instead of appealing, the association will simply lodge a protest, a course of action that would register anger, but not necessarily result in any meaningful action.

Even Kenny Thompson, the national team coach, is in the dark about what the BFA plan to do. "I'm not absolutely sure where the process is at the moment," he said. "Somone has told me that he (Whitley) wasn't booked twice, so I don't know. That's all I want to say about it."

For Thompson though the second goal, and the dispute surrounding it, is where the real issue lies. And 48 hours after game, the manner of his team's defeat still hurts.

"It's difficult, you don't ever get over a defeat, you accept it, but can't sat that you get over it," he said.

"Especially when you look at the situation, we were in a great position, and in the end the main difference was the goal that they scored when we were making a change.

"It makes it more difficult to swallow in those circumstances, it is difficult to get over, and it will be something that will stick in our minds for the rest of our lives. But it is important that we move on, it won't stop us in our quest to improve, and will actually motivate us to do better in the future.

"For me the main issue is the goal. It was a situation that was mismanaged and that is the contentious part for me. It had a direct impact on the outcome, and the mismanagement of the subsitution is the most important thing.

"With a double booking, there is no guarantee that you would go on and win against 10 men, but the substitution led to the goal, and that is a whole different ball game."

General Discussion / WHY i fired my Secretary!!
« on: June 11, 2008, 11:18:48 AM »
Why I fired my Secretary.

Last week was my birthday and I didn't feel very well waking up on that

I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and

'Happy Birthday!', and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone 'Happy

I thought...

Well, that's marriage for you, but the kids... They will remember..

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn't say a word.

So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat

As I walked into my office, my secretary Jane said, 'Good Morning

and by the way, Happy Birthday!'

It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o'clock, when Jane knocked on my door and said, 'You

It's such a beautiful day outside, and it is your Birthday, what do you
say we go out to lunch, just you and me.'

I said, 'Thanks, Jane, that's the greatest thing I've heard all
Let's go!'

We went to lunch. But we didn't go where we normally would go.

She chose instead at a quiet bistro with a private table.

We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously..

On the way back to the office, Jane said, 'You know, It's such a

We don't need to go straight back to the office, Do We ?'

I responded, 'I guess not. What do you have in mind ?'

She said, 'Let's drop by my apartment, it's just around the

After arriving at her apartment, Jane turned
to me and said, ' Boss, if you don't mind, I'm going to step into
the bedroom for just a moment. I'll be right back.'

'Ok.' I nervously replied.

She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, she came out
carrying a huge birthday cake ....

Followed by my wife, my kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers,
all singing 'Happy Birthday'.

And I just sat there...

On the couch...

Football / Forumites - we stand as one???? HA!
« on: June 02, 2008, 02:02:09 PM »
I must comment as i have done before on a few occasions on this issue...cooperation for forumites here leaves a lot to be desired...

On Sunday at the game...

if we had 7 - 9 forumites helping with the flag...there were plenty...

allyuh feel it easy to get that ting to and into the stadium...we had one man straining to tote it heself in d bag...

we get it into the stadium...but now is to find location...u think 5 people can effectively hold an area for that flag...

e finally talk to people and they agree to leh we use they seats and they will sit in it...volunteering when time come to help we handle it...cause we knew strangers would be the one helping...

time to open flag for dry run...

we need about 6 holding flag at the top, another 8 or so for the sides ( 4 per side ) and we need about 2 people giving a heads up to the spectators down below..and i only giving very minimum numbers here...

at this time we have only bout 6 forumites helping...much less to say...and yes i saw u...there are forumites sitting all over the stadium watching d struggle and aint go budge dey a** to come help we...

d same goes for getting it outta d stadium...

i still vex from certain happenings yesterday to perhaps be able to type say what allyuh want...those who were there know why...



yes is a good thing we had the flag there on sunday cause ah of what JWFF put us thru with that shameful ting on d field...what some of

allyuh on here doh know is that on an attempt to get the flag going we were stopped by a handful of fans...unhappy for whatever reason...

but which could have and would have been clearly avoided had we the manpower to effectively manage the flag...

flag unvieling was done at about 2.30pm...this is where the pics came from...we tried again before 5pm but we were stopped...d flag was

not shown effectively before the game...during the game or even after...

so for those who say YAYYYYY look we's a comment i read with mixed emotions...


 i read this somewhere -  a presenter was saying look at the stands...but what were they looking for...cause ours wasn't there...

yes mods...i know i mite get ah lambasse for d tone of this thread...but i'll take my reprimand...
