Formula 1: Lewis Hamilton is the 2014 World Champion!

Is this the result you were expecting? Unlike some, I have no problem with my biases. I am a Lewis Hamilton fan. He is my type of race-car driver. Hamilton is willing to push the machine beyond its engineer-created limit and dive-bomb an unsuspecting opponent with a previously unforeseen pass, at a 'highly toxic' location.

Be careful where you [...]

We are at the final battle of what has been a season dominated by the juggernaut from Germany and I am certain that every German would love to see their countryman, Rosberg, overhaul the minute deficit, win the race and [...]

CARIBBEAN CUP, A GOOD SHOWING ON WHICH TO BUILD

Congratulations to the Reggae Boyz for claiming their sixth Caribbean Cup title in Montego Bay on Tuesday night. Considering what happened the last time the team contested the competition last year when it didn't even get out of its group, this performance was a significant turnaround given what lies before them in terms of international competition. Over the next couple of years the Boyz will battle the best in CONCACAF and CONMEBOL in the Gold Cup and the Centenario in 2015 [...]
