The Premier said, “I want to congratulate our National Football team who represented Bermuda with extreme poise and pride last night, and all of Bermuda should be celebrating their achievement.

“We still have another critical match ahead of us on Sunday afternoon against the Bahamas, so I want to encourage all of Bermuda to come out in full force with their Bermuda flags, air horns and whistles and show their support for our team.

“I’ll be in attendance at the match wearing my team jersey, and I can’t wait to see what lies in store for the fans on Sunday.”

    Damn.

    The PLP should have presented him with one of their Jerseys.

    “Thanks so much. No need really but I am thankful that you thought of me. Now let’s play ball”.

      • Banks says:

        What community $ has the oba did accept give it to the America’s ****.

        • Double D says:

          Gave PHC thousands of dollars procured from criminal activities as well as other charities.

          Actually they amended the law so that transfer can be facilitated.

          It is a shame the PLP raised our deficit by 2,400+% in the space of less than a decade.

          If they managed finances correctly then more monies could be distributed.

          But you reap what you sow.

        • Barracuda says:
