The World Cup News…
It is that time of the year, it happens just once in four years and it can be considered the peak of football. It is the world cup and every nation that qualified for it are warming up to represent their country and maybe win the prestigious trophy. It has already been decided that the Nigerian National team came first with their amazing jersey by Nike that sold out within minutes of it being opened for sale. I hope for every Nigerian out there around the world that the boys do as well as the Jersey though their friendly matches signify otherwise. Nigeria faces Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in their group.
Neymar, in other news has equalled the goal scoring record of Romario who scored 55goals in 70 matches, while it took Neymar 85 games. Just 26years old, Neymar still has a chance of breaking the all-time record held by Pele at 77goals though he also has Ronaldo ahead of him in 62 goals. Can he break the record? With age and the skill, he possesses I don’t see it beyond him to be honest.
Nations like Iran, Portugal, Argentina just to mention a few, have landed in Russia. Saudi Arabia and Russia would kick things up in the first match of the world cup. Stay tuned…
Ras Kimono has passed on…
The legendary Nigerian Reggae artist has passed on. He died in a Lagos hospital after an ailment. The album Under pressure was a classic and one that would always be remembered. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
Rafeal Nadal has done it again. The Spanish born tennis player made it a record high of 11 Grand slam on the clay court, an amazing tally and career if I do say so myself. Nadal and Federer beginning to play on the courts that support their strength. Like fine wine they get better with age and the young players seem not to have found a way to kick the old players off the top. Congratulations to Nadal, a man that shares the same birthday with me and one I am proud of though I am still a Federer fan. Take a bow, you have earned it Nadal.
Golden State Warriors.
The NBA finals was totally one sided when the Cavaliers met the Golden state Warriors. The Golden state won by a 4-0 margin in the series to become the winners of the 2018 NBA finals. Kevin Durant was the main man, since he came into the side of the GSW, he has brought steel to a team that already had flair with the likes of Curry. Amazing feat and a back to back win for them. Congrats boys.
Finally, the Canadian Prix came and went over the weekend with Sabastian Vettel of Ferrari winning it and taking the lead back from Hamilton who finished fifth. Very poor from the Mercedes team who still had the old engines on and did not ask for an upgrade. Bottas of Mercedes though came second ahead of both Red bull’s cars. It is still a long season yet, there might still be a surprise. We the fans expect that though.
P.S Did I mention, the group MURIC decided to drop the purported lawsuit they where going to start against Falzthebadtguy? They claimed they listened to the people who told them not to go ahead. Two words: Misplaced Priority.
Have a great week and remember show a little love and concern to someone today and this week. Listen more and talk less, give people your time and let us make the world a little better than we met it.
