France Wins World Cup Exit


Clara Morgane - French Supermodel displays curves that were unaffected by the curse of Zidane

The French could go to France for all I care. Ever since Zidane decided four years ago to combine football with professional wrestling in the World Cup final against Italy I decided to have some bad mind for the French for this World Cup. My bad mind hoped for France’s early downfall despite their super models displaying curves that are useful to most men. Some said an Italian witch doctor placed a curse on the French team and from all the cursing that went on in the French camp over the last few days, I believe the curse is real and worked better than expected. The cursing got so bad France’s President Sarkozy had to intervene but even he could do little about the curse and nothing about the cursing.

Raffaella Fico - Italian supermodel was engineered in Italy

France made their embarrassing first round exit today losing to South Africa, and from reports on the Internet the French 2010 World Cup squad, in the end,  shamed their countrymen, their supporters, their language and the color blue.  It’s nothing personal and this blog post is all in good World Cup fun despite the French not thinking so but seriously, any country where people’s best attempt at English is with a French accent must be prevented from winning the World Cup .

Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) -The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Video


The World Cup has developed into, not just a sport involving the whole world via TV and newspaper supplements, but the World Cup is is also concerts,  music CDs, books available at Amazon and RIK plus music videos and blogs. Somehow, the unofficial or official music mascot for FIFA is now Shakira, my favorite singer and decent belly dancer. Waka Waka has turned out to be as addictive as Waving Flag and this video has turned out to be amazing. I saw Shakira perform Waka Waka at the FIFA Kick Off Concert and she was amazing for a person who is only 4′ 11”. At the time of  posting, this video already had almost 7,000,000 hits on YouTube proving how popular the World Cup and its music is. As the man in the roti shop in Couva said yesterday, “well done, Jack Warner and company.”

FIFA World CUP 2010 – Waving Flag – K’naan ft. Nancy Ajram


This is an addictive song and video for FIFA World Cup 2010 and you would expect nothing less for the World Cup and from Coca-Cola.  The World Cup 2010 is being held in South Africa and starts in a few days. It will be available on TV in Trinidad and Tobago in HD and hopefully in English only on Directv.  Standard definition will be available on one of the local stations.

This version of the song was sung by K’naan featuring Nancy Ajram. K’naan is from Somalia and Namcy Ajram is from Lebanon. The name of the song is Waving Flag which was written by Keinan Abdi Warsam (K’naan), Peter Hernandez, Philip Lawrence, and Jean Daval. Waving Flag or waving anything in the air is something the people of Trinidad and Tobago can identify with easily.

Waving Flag Lyrics (Original Song)

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
But Violent prone, poor people zone
But it’s my home, all I have known
Where I got grown, streets we would roam
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest
Among the hardest survival
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak
Except no defeat, surrender retreat

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day
It’s not far away, so for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

So many wars, settling scores
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor
I heard them say, love is the way
Love is the answer, that’s what they say,
But look how they treat us, make us believers
We fight their battles, then they deceive us
Try to control us, they couldn’t hold us
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers

But we struggling, fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day
It’s not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag.
