Guyana: The lessons of rodeo, regatta, kite flying…and popular attractions

The lessons of rodeo, regatta, kite flying…and popular attractions

Leonard Gildarie

The last week was a holiday, one with Guyanese taking their foot off the pedal for a breather. We are a hardworking people who are slowly learning the value of pampering ourselves. That sometimes for some people can be both intoxicating and a bad habit.

If you are familiar with what transpires in the US – North America in general – and Europe, holidays are a big thing. People love travelling for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The associated shopping and other associated activities have been money-spinners.    Continue reading

Memories of Kite Flying in Georgetown, Guyana – By Kemahl Khan

Memories of Kite Flying in Georgetown, Guyana

– By Kemahl Khan

Adam Harris’s nostalgic piece, Kite Flying: A tradition is fast disappearing that appeared in a recent edition of the Guyanese Online Website sent me off on a trip of my own down memory lane, remembering my kite-flying days as a small kid and  later as a youth in Guyana.

Douglas Jardine and his men landed in Australia in 1932. Jardine, aloof and aristocratic, had a plan. He was going to use his main strike bowler, Harold Larwood, to physically hurt the Aussies. He was going to use Bodyline to thwart the ability of Don Bradman, and others.

Our West Indian Cricket Shame Only Deepens – Commentary By David A. Comissiong

Barbados Underground

DAVID A. COMISSIONG, President, Clement Payne Movement, Citizen of the Caribbean, and Lover of West Indies Cricket

How  shameful  it was to witness the gleeful rejoicing of the members of the West Indies cricket team in the wake of their fortuitous and totally undeserved victory over Scotland — a non- test status, associate member team of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

These men — supposed heirs to the  great West Indian cricketing tradition of such immortals as George Headley,Sir Frank Worrell, Sir Garfield Sobers, Clive Lloyd, and Sir Vivian Richards — seemingly had no qualms about celebrating the fact that it took  a manifestly erroneous umpiring decision, the intervention of a shower of rain, and the complicated calculations designed by Messers Duckworth and Lewis to “gift” them a 5 run victory over a Cricket team that is regarded as a minnow in international cricket!

But, as hurtful and shameful…

Impact of Twenty20 format on WI cricket, money – By George Alleyne

Impact of Twenty20 format on WI cricket, money

– By George Alleyne – Caribbean Life News – March 17, 2018

The need for money to ensure survival of the game was the common ground reached in a discussion among former Test greats and Barbados cricket administrators.

The legendary West Indies opening batting pair, Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, earlier this week departed from the cohesion for which they are known while plundering bowlers the world over, and disagreed publicly on whether Twenty20 cricket is destroying the game.    READ MORE

The American returns to the Tour on International Women’s Day after an absence of more than a year
