The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

In a few years T&T would have the most educated footballers in the Caribbean - keep them coming. Hope they studying stuff that could help T&T like Criminal Justice and International Business  ;)

I Feel sorry for the boy going through US Customs and Immigration. If he only pass through Miami. then he must be warned that he will miss his connecting flight.
 A suggestion would be to have a six hr cushon as a connecting flight.
 If he gets in Miami at 12noon, get a connecting flight after 4pm.
 It takes about 3and a half interrogation time.

She always in one line and I half de time get singled out, I once wore a christian t shirt that "The American dream must Die" for a skateboard company and Lawd, they almost detained me for a day. Hope that boy after  he pass through immigration he ok mentally to immediately rip it up.
