Seismic Vibrations Radiating Beyond the Boundary of the IPL

By Stephen Kangal, Caroni

TT CricketersThat the Almighty God is a born Trinbagonian has been established irrefutably time and again. Connecting to Him via TSTT is billed as a local call in Caroni. I cannot say the same for elsewhere since I do not know.

Here is Mother T&T (Dharti Mata) fossilized and embedded in the rock of a creeping and arrogant administration. They daily unleash waves and waves of punitive fiscal measures against a people permanently under siege from the forces of evil and darkness. We are facing a bleak status quo and a cancelled future. But God does not and cannot sleep especially when Trinis are in trouble.

But he placed blame for the myriad faults at the feet of Turner Alpha Limited, who were responsible for the stadium’s design. Udecott, said Buch, was not culpable, since the corporation was not required to know about design issues.

Soca WarriorsThose tired-looking and lethargic T&T Soca Stars played as if they were in the twilight zone of their career in San Salvador. They were a disorganized and uncoordinated outfit, lacking- in- both team spirit and fight bunch of footballers as if belonging to the Eddie Hart League. Mind you they had just returned from an expensive exposure to best soccer training facilities in Argentina at enormous expense to the tax-payers of this country.
