Brooks Koepka’s nerveless display denies Tiger Woods fairytale victory.


A slam of the driver into turf meant Tiger Woods knew this was the end, even if it may, in fact, be another beginning. He swung said club through the air in a subsequent fit of pique. At the 71st hole of the 100th US PGA Championship, his errant ball buried in foliage, Woods’s frustrations were echoed throughout golf, which was denied the finest tale of all. Although it was epic fun while it lasted, it was over.

Woods did more than enough during this major to suggest he will take delivery of a 15th major. Even if he does not win another of golf’s big four, nobody can now reasonably claim he cannot. A Bellerive total of 266 shots is the lowest of Woods’s major career.

This mattered little to the man himself, whose competitive instinct means falling short will never be acceptable. Woods has returned from personal, physical and professional distress to go so close here. A staggering 3,710 days had passed since he claimed his 14th major, virtually on one leg, at Torrey Pines.

Lakers News: LeBron James Specifically Requested Free Agency Meeting With Only Magic Johnson.


After managing to get out from under Jordan Clarkson’s and Larry Nance Jr.’s contracts at the trade deadline this past season, the Los Angeles Lakers officially were in strong position to pursue two max-level free agents.

While they couldn’t publicly comment on the matter, president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka were believed to have LeBron James and Paul George, in that order, atop their free agency wish list.

The Lakers were immediately spurned by George as he didn’t so much as take a meeting with his hometown team before re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Nigerian Youths Arise!


Revolutionaries are key players in changing a nation not political parties. The same approach helped us to gain our freedom from colonial masters until military regime seized it from us.

Not until 1993 when Moshood Abiola (M.K.O) bought it back by laying down his life via democracy and until now we are still suffering because majority of our leaders only cater for their pockets and family members ;forgetting the national interests of.

Here below are the demands of our revolution and we will not relent until they are met:

1. "Food for all!", 
2. "Good roads for all!" , 
3. "Good hospital for all!", 
4. "Stable electricity for all!", 
5. "Clean and drinkable water supply!", 
6. "National security!", 
7. "Employments for all!", 
8. "Good economic atmosphere for both local & foreign businesses!"
9. "Good education system for all!"
10."Freedom of speech for all!"
11. "Gender equality for all!"
12. "Respect to human rights!"
13. "Corruption free system of government!"
14. "Amendment of constitution for a new Nigeria!"
15. "No more paying financial or mineral resources homage to colonial bosses!"

Nigerian Youths Arise! Nigerian Youths Arise! Nigerian Youths Arise!

At some point in heaven, there was an adversary and then came a revolution - 
Revelation 12 : 11 (KJV):  

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death."

BE READY THE WIND OF CHANGE THROUGH REVOLUTION IS COMING!

DAMBULLA, Sri Lanka – Quinton de Kock has rediscovered his form as South Africa went 2-0 up in the one-day international series in Dambulla, Sri Lanka on Wednesday, and now he's hoping for a 5-0 scoreline.

A sequence of 3, 10, 32 and 8 in the two Tests didn’t make for happy reading for De Kock, but with South Africa totalling 126, 73, 124 and 290, his failures didn’t stand out too much. But 47 in 59 balls and 87 in 78 in two successful chases in the ODIs have made him feel slightly better about himself. 

“Obviously I am feeling more satisfied than I was in the Test matches, it was quite tough then,” he said after his knock from the top of the order helped South Africa win the second ODI by four wickets and earned him a Player of the Match award. “Coming now into white ball, change of format, starting to add some value to the team is always nice. It’s great also to be on the winning side in Sri Lanka, so all things are good at the moment.

SOCIAL CAMPAIGN: BE PART OF THIS REVOLUTION!


"I live in a city that works: I'm part of a city that makes things happen. An African city for that matter (Johannesburg)! 

I wonder why things are different in Nigeria: Ibadan - Lagos expressway has been under construction before I left home but is a pity the same project is still under construction for about 12 years.

Who to blame: the construction company, the government, or the city people?

Damn, I'm sorry: we need a revolution out here!"OST

I’M SAYING: 

"WE NEED AN ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT,  ACCOUNTABLE COMPANIES & ACCOUNTABLE CITY PEOPLE. ENOUGH OF PUBLIC FUNDS EMBEZZLEMENT.

WE NEED A REVOLUTION OUT HERE! WE WANT POSITIVE CHANGE IN NIGERIA!"


Arsenal legend Henry offered Egypt managerial role after missing out on Villa job.


Thierry Henry has been offered the Egypt national team head coaching position, according to player agent Nader El-Sayed. 

Henry was an assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez at the World Cup in Russia, helping to lead the European nation to a third-place finish at the showpiece. 

Following the World Cup, Henry departed his role as a television pundit to focus on his coaching career before being linked with Aston Villa.

And the Arsenal legend could now be set to take his first senior managerial job should he accept Egypt's offer. 

“We had a meeting with Thierry Henry’s agent in London, and [Egyptian FA board member] Hazem Emam was present," El-Sayed told local media.
