Standing Tall

I know some people like the way they painted the old Port-of-Spain lighthouse over earlier this year as a tribute to the Soca Warriors ... but I had preferred it in the original plain white and was mortified the first time I encountered this new design and what I found to be garishly-put-together colours.

But yesterday after the match, as I drove home, the lighthouse suddenly didn't look so unsightly. In fact it was a proud national monument, standing tall, strong and confident in spite of heavy, dark, English-looking clouds.

P.S. Oh, what a desperate game some people resort to playing at last minute when confronted by the real champions. Thank God for replays. May the truth (the whole truth) come to light. FIFA, Crouch's hair-grabbing desperation is not the only thing you may have to investigate in that match ...

Sorry spec..

But I have to disagree, while I might be proud of the footballers because they really did play well...I still think that what was allowed to happen to the light house is absolutely ridiculous.
