I am not one of those who have been ranting and raving about the golf world cup being hosted in Barbados.Not that i have anything about it being here it is just that I don't like golf.I don't like the look of golf...i don't like the clothes that golfers wear....I don't even know why they call it a sport.

It seems as much sport as taking a leisurely stroll on the beach. It doesn't seem physical...it doesn't seem mental......maybe one of these days I will understand.

I can't say I am looking forward to the golf world cup.....but cricket world cup...that is another story altogether.
