    LOL! Yeah… was funny!

    I’m happy for them, and I’m happy our T&T team did their best as well.

    I hope the powers that be will give the sportsmen and women their just dues and financial support!

    I thought your coverage of the Olympics was better than the Olympics themselves — great photos, great moments, the best part was to see the Caribbean sweep all of the sprint events so masterfully, and under their own flags.

    Thanks, I’m not even finished yet… had to take a break due to real world commitments.

    The Caribbean (esp. Jamaica) put the world on notice. There’s a lot to be said about homegrown talent.
