Big ups to the Africans and Hispanics on Yowlink
November 29, 2010

In a follow-up to Peta-Gaye’s “Jamaicans and Trinbagonians (Trinidiadians & Tobagans) represent on Yowlink“, I must say that the past 2 months, we have had quite a few new “Yawdies” coming in from the African continent and Latin America.  Of this, we have noticed a majority from Ghana, many who are supporters of Reggae music and/or Buju Banton.  Some are also just fans of the Caribbean and Caribbean people.

Welcome to Yowlink my friends

We welcome you all.

Gayle’s 333 inning not enough to prevent draw
November 19, 2010

Chris Gayle to his knees after scoring his second triple-century of his career

Chris Gayle - 333 runs

Chris Gayle broke or tied all sorts of records with a masterful 333 runs against an average Sri Lankan bowling attack.  The 333 came off just 437 balls that saw him hit 34 fours and 9 sixes.  Amazing!  None of the bowlers troubled him until he got past the triple century mark and started to show fatigue.  The West Indies had to bring in a runner for him at that point.

This was the West Indian batsman’s second time scoring triple-century joining the ranks of Sehwag (IN) Lara (WI), Bradman (ENG).  The first time, he scored 319 against South Africa in the Caribbean.

Weather got better of West Indies

Unfortunately, it was the rain that did the West Indies in.  If not for the rain, they may have pulled it off.  Good start to the tour for the Darren Sammy-led West Indian squad.

The teams lost hours of cricket due to rain, but the West Indies fought hard trying to win the match.  Alas, it was not to be.  The Sri Lankan batsmen played well in the shortened match to preserve a draw.

Buju Banton out on bail; Terms strict

Buju Banton

Buju Banton was finally granted the bail his lawyer seeked on his behalf.

Reggae singer and son of the late Bob Marley

Stephen Marley

However, the terms are very strict.  He must post US $300K.  His friend, Stephen Marley (son of the late king of reggae, Bob Marley), put up his home as collateral.  Stephen Marley had testified in the first trial.

Also, the artist needs to hire private security to ensure he doesn’t flee, sign an extradition agreement ensuring his return if he flees, and he must wear a monitoring device.  Wow!
