Ever try looking on the waybackmachine to see if your web pages are archived there and show any reference to soca warriors? You need to have the URL of the original site to look it up.

Football / Re: Finding out Jack

I'm not from Trinidad so I don't know all the ins and outs of TTFF, but from what I was reading regional teams have voting rights - used to be lower level teams did, too, but were stripped of that privaledge under Jack's watch.  So is it possible to start impressing on the regional teams the need to vote out the bad influence? This is for longer term, of course. Won't help in getting tickets now, but for the future of the game in Trinidad.

This is interesting: ebay actually has a faq about selling world cup tickets

I'm looking for an english version. If I can't find it I'll try to translate when I get time.

There's still plenty of listings. Looks like most of them propose to sell it to you through the official fifa trading site in Feb if you win the auction. One already say they have the tickets from an earlier sale stage and will transfer them to your name immediately. Who knows for sure..

We'll be stayin just outside of Munich at a family home there, though it's out of the way of most TnT games. We may stay with relatives up near Frankfurt around game days. We'll be driving.

yeah, definitely don't leave without your pepper sauce! Food is more bland over there in general. Need a little something to kick it up. I know, my mom cooked German food, but my wife cooks Trini food and I must say both are good, but I've become a pepper mout'

Absolutely, I'm there tickets or not. It's all about the experience. And even if you don't get in they sometimes set up big screen in town square for those that get stuck outside the stadium and it's a fete anyways.

Also there are a very few Caribbean style restaurants, though probably nothing that holds a candle to real Trini food. Choose "karibisch" under "Küche-Stil"

Also where the Trini consulates are if yuh have passport or other problems when you're there.

And a few German-Trinidad frienship/ex-pat/soca association type links:

edit: Also a German-English dictionary

Cheers, E-man.

PS If you need anything translated I can try to help out. I'm originally from Germany and my wife is a Trini. We livin in Brooklyn now.

2006 World Cup - Germany / Re: Don't expect to get much from the Lottery

Yeah, by (un)luck of the draw the England game is in one of the smaller stadiums. about 32,000 in Nürnberg, Dortmund has 50,000 and Kaiserslautern has 37,000.

I tell yuh when we had it in the us in '94 we had bigger venues and it was one of the highest attended cups of all time. As much as "soccer" not a big sport in the US can't talk about attedance numbers there.
