it took the hand of Suarez to deny Ghana a place in the Semi-finals of the 2010 world cup and i thank him dearly.
i was really terrified that the black stars would win the world cup. they were too good to be ignored. damn!!!
reason???? well just my fear that the nation Ghana which i'm associated with would have been 'compelled' to waste obscene amounts of monies on a few individuals. for even reaching just the quarter finals here is what we have $20,000 for each player http://news.myjoyonline.com/worldcup/201007/48759.asp.
that is aside all the bonuses for wins, appearances, progressions, per diems paid to cover the 30 days which was not all spent in SA, etc.
So i'm very thankful to Suarez.
and i pray that until we learn to apply equity (i wonder what Ignatius Gaisay got for all the gold medal he got for Ghana!) we should not win such events!!!
Oh Suarez, i'd remain thankful to you!!!
