Stephanie Rice looks fantastic in this photo she recently posted on Twitter
Here we go again, judging a woman’s character as unsavory simply because she looks good in a bikini and let the world know. Stephanie Rice is an Australian swimmer and a triple Olympic Champion world record holder. She looks amazing in bikinis.
As expected, some people are making a fuss about the photo (above) which she recently posted on twitter because they say “the bikini is too racy and brings the Australian swim team into disrepute.” I am certainly not offended by the photo and find the bikini racy enough. Some people are always pretentiously offended by anything sexy and would prefer if all women wear several bolts of cloth 24-7. This type of controversy will not go away anytime soon. I am now truly encouraged that the Olympics, which starts next month in London, might not be as boring as all the other Olympics. Some say she did it for attention and I say I hope so, for the Olympics sake. There are reports that one of her sponsors, Speedo, might be concerned about the posted photo but I think they might be secretly delighted she has the looks. I want to suggest that other female athletes who have appropriate bodies, post photos of themselves in bikinis as a way of improving the TV ratings of the Olympics, and to encourage more females to take up sports as a lucrative career as opposed to crowded and boring fields like hairdressing, lingerie modeling, accounting, medicine and law.
Kim Kardashian is to bikini wearing what Usain Bolt is to track and field. Kim is the almost undisputed world champ of bikinis as the samples posted in this blog will support. However, unlike track and field events, bikini wearing normally involves no stop watch but the rate of rise in most men is the quantity that is subconsciously used to determine which bikini and its wearer is the top performer. And yes, sometimes one woman trumps another by a fraction of a hair on the beach. If there is an almost ideal shape of a woman to successfully wear a bikini for the lenses of voyeuristic photographers then Kim had it for some time and probably still has it.
The headlines on Yahoo last night asked who’s to blame for USA’s defeat by Ghana in the World Cup and to me that was such an easy question to answer – Ghana. The USA was beaten by a superior team with superior skill, superior attitude, and superior coach. It was not the Jabulani Ballor Barack Obama this time. I suppose it is always hard for a country rich with money, movie stars, and crude oil on their beach like USA to accept sporting defeat by a much poorer but yet much richer country like Ghana but that was always the way of the World Cup. When you look at players from Ghana play like Asamoah Gyan, Andrea Ayew, Ibrahim Ayew, John Mensa, Kevin Prince Boateng and amazing goalkeeper Richard Kingston you realize why the USA lost. Coaches are necessary scapegoats in defeat and US coach, Bob Bradley, who looks more like a stuck up war general than a football coach, is being publicly pulverized as the US looks for excuses for their failure that doesn’t include a superior team from Ghana. The US played well but sometimes big countries just have to accept the fact that being able to consistently beatTrinidad and Tobago in World Cup qualifiers is nothing to shout about. Ghana’s Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac, who always seems unemotionally tense, might be doing something right with the right team.
Ghana Gonna Get You
The name Team USA to the rest of the World sounds like an adorable GI Joe sequel but to many non-US citizens, they just don’t have the FIFA World Cupappeal to encourage mass worldwide support and sympathy. Team Ghana aka The Black Stars, not to be confused with New Zealand’s All Whites, are still considered underdogs for winning the World Cup 2010 but those odds are rightfully declining daily and I hope they make it to the finals and win. With champs and runners up Italy and France already out, The World Cup now needs an even bigger and better shakeup to give the Planet the hope it deserves.
So the Pasta Players, aka World Cup Champs, have gone the way of France and burnt tomato paste. Not only did the Italians lose with great humiliation to the Slovaks 3 to 2 but they finished at the bottom of their group and below New Zealand, a country that is more famous for sheep and the Kiwi Fruit than football. Even the USA was able to pull a late extra time goal to advance to the Second Stage so it will be difficult for the Berlusconi Boys to explain to their countrymen why they went from Hero to Zero faster than Berlusconi can lift a skirt.
I am not one to say “It good for them” but that is how many World Cup fans in the countries that didn’t qualify for the World Cup feel about big shot teams except Brazil. At least that is how I feel since I am always one for the underdog except maybe the US who is a big underdog that doesn’t encourage sympathy in much of the Third World. I will let the Italian blogs and press deal with the Italian team and their coach while I quietly celebrate via this blog post in an office full of pseudo-Italians from Trinidad and Tobago.
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 .
Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero World Cup Victory Kiss
The YouTube video was posted today, the day after Spain beat Netherlands good and proper to win The World Cup 2010 – Well Done Spain and well done Iker Casillas!!!
Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero
Behind every good team’s failure at the World Cup there are always rumours of sexy women. Men – young and old, athletic and big-waisted, Ferrari rich and Kia Rio poor all have one thing in common – they love looking and dreaming about sexy, young, female Spanish reporters in tight jeans holding a long microphone near a goal post. A girl like that can run rings around a man’s mind for eons and there is little the defenceless male brain can do to stop it.
Sara Carbonero holding a microphone
The assumed romantic involvement between Spanish goalkeeper, Iker Casillas, and unbelievably sexy Spanish football reporter, Sara Carbonero, is what is being rumoured to have caused the Swiss’s shocking victory over the Euro Cup Champions, Spain, in their first round World Cup encounter. If this romance was the cause then I would say Iker Casillas is going through the incubation stage of this romance where he is confused, and may mistake a football field for a Jamaican beach and a may not be seeing the Jabalani ball until it’s too late.
The coach and technical team for Spain will no doubt be looking into the matter with many solutions to be considered including ice in the jock strap and reporter removal. What the technical team should remember is that there is no guaranteed cure for early passionate male lust and it just has to go through the lifecycle of lust to love to comfortable to too comfortable to boredom to looking for excitement once again.

It would seem that every West Indian batsman wants to be a hero and end up on the back page of Caribbean daily newspapers for their heroic batting deeds the day before. They do this because in the Caribbean, if you are perceived as a good West Indian cricketer, especially a batsman, you will get plenty woman. Some West Indian men get women with charm and a check book while others get women by appointing them as Government Ministers. But West Indian cricketers feel in order to get the best shaped women with firm bodies and looks that would kill even after these women have just woken up from a night of partying and group sex, batsmen have to score sixes and fours at the international level, regardless of the pitch and bowling. If you are a bowler, you have to take scores of wickets but batsmen are considered sexier than bowlers because a man swinging a good size piece of willow is sexier than a man throwing a ball at stumps.
This egoistic sexual urge by the West Indies batsmen has been the downfall of West Indies cricket over the years. The average West Indian batsman makes easy things hard because they let their urge for sex override the common sense lobe of their brain and therefore they get out quickly and by their own hand. It is known as an unforced error. Some say it is the lack of discipline by West Indian cricketers and I suppose discipline can be considered the ability to dampen ones sexual urges while batting.
Some say the West Indies have the talent to beat any team but I disagree. To me talent is having skilful brains and a desire to win. So far, and for a number of years, most West Indies cricketers have displayed almost none of the attributes of talent so how can we beat any team. Maybe we in the West Indies just don’t have cricket talent anymore but the public have failed to admit this. For West Indies cricketers with and without talent, cricket is a job not a passion. Talent and passion for the game of cricket beats ego and sexual desires any day.
Trinidad and Tobago beat Cape Cobras today and secured a place in the CLT20 finals tomorrow. Vote now.
Trinidad and Tobago became the favorite among the cricketing world and they moved from underdog at the start of the competition, to top dog today. The winner of the finals will take home $US2.4 million. The losers would hardly be considered losers and take home $US1.4 million. Not a bad dollar-haul considering Sir Allen Stanford is broke and beaten up in a US jail. The money is good but not as important as the example the Trinidad and Tobago team has set for West Indies Cricket.
Whether people agree or not, 20/20 is the future of Cricket. I say this because in the real world of sports money talks louder than the traditionalist. 20/20 Cricket promoted by billionaire Sir Allen Stanford, has taken the gentleman’s game of cricket to a new commercial level very few sports enjoy. Tomorrow, 1st November 2008, the West Indies Stanford Superstars 20/20 team will play England in a US $20M match where the winner will take all. This means every player of the winning team will receive $1 million US. 20/20 may hardly resemble traditional test cricket and the limited 50 over game but it is intensely entertaining and may just be what the Americans will order if it is on the menu.
The tournament has not been without the customary controversy and it was reported in the Trinidad Guardian yesterday that the inaugural winner-takes-all series has been marred by controversy since it began last weekend. Stanford was forced to apologize for his behavior during England’s opening victory over Middlesex on Sunday after he was pictured with Matt Prior’s wife seated on his lap and his arms around other wives and girlfriends. Sir Allen said he didn’t mean to discriminate but he could not accommodate others on his lap since he is not a very big man so he had to hug the rest. I think Matt Prior’s wife is bold enough to make decisions and I suppose sitting on a billionaire’s lap has its unique advantages and thrills. Seriously though, I think she sat with the best of intentions and Stanford had only the good of the Game on his mind. But, my advice to the English team and public is an old Trinidad and Tobago saying “yuh cah fraid power if yuh want tu play mas” or in the Queens English “If You Can’t Stand The Heat, Stay Out Of The Kitchen, Please.”
