AL-QAEDA Threatens FIFA World Cup….

Last week, al-Qaeda’s North African network released threats upon the FIFA World Cup event this June in South Africa. The primary target as indicated by the threat is the scheduled game between the U.S.A. and England in Cape Town.

The threats appear on al-Qaeda-linked websites. A statement said: “How
beautiful would the game between England and the USA be when broadcast
live
from a stadium full of spectators – when the sound of an explosion
rumbles
through the stands. The resulting death toll is in the dozens and
hundreds –
Allah willing.”

They have also vowed to target a full array of facilities that is known to be utilized by supporters during this tournament, from hotels to car parks. They are also claiming to have explosives that will be undetected by the security scanning systems.

This type of threat against a World Sporting event is pitiful and should be prevented at the source.
 

Back to Baseball

On a happier note Roy Halladay takes the mound today, as the Phillies attempt to sweep the Astros and keep them as the only team in the MLB without a win.

    There’s really no room to work with here Peter. Anything and everything I say will get me censored. Unless you can decode a lot of *&%@#!)&$&?

    Yea back to baseball…Today, Johan’s long awaited 2nd start is finally here. Then we go to Colorado. Are you doing anything Tuesday? Wanna pitch for me? I was thinking of pitching Johan three more times a week and having one of the WeatherBoyz pitch once every 20th day. Does Halladay have any kids that can pitch?

    I always bet on Halladay … and I always bet on reason beating radical superstition… but in both worlds I can be wrong sometimes and that scares me.

    Mike – decoding is a relaxing time for me, but your right doesn’t leave much to say without being censored…. as for the Mets pitching… I hear that clone machine from ‘Santa Clause 3’ is up for grabs…. although after today you probably don’t want to clone Santana either…. I still think weatherboyz sound like a WWE team….
