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.

Those who play golf tell me you have to play it to understand the passion for a sport that is beyond comparison...truly that is what they say. I don't know if there is a difference between hitting golf balls and playing golf.What I know is that it seems to be a lazy persons 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.

Now cricket world cup is a different kettle of fish.....lots of action...lots of involvement and we have a team with a chance to bring home some money.

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

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari.One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'.In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections;The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los Barb…
