        Really Onion Juice? Do you every get tired of being the first person to say something stupid in this forum? What is wrong with you exactly?

        These young men return with a great result after putting in many long hours of training. Instead of saying something positive, you decide to reply by bringing up one of the saddest days in Bermudas Football History.

        Where you not hugged enough? Did mom have to tie a piece of meat around your neck to get the dog to play with you? What exactly is your problem?

    Congratulations U17 Team,
    Thanks for your commitment to the goal not only in St. Vincent but also here at home. Thank you for being a team and not just a couple of good players and some backup. Thanks you coaches for your high expectations of our young men and thank you coaches and staff for introducing the spiritual side to your players. An inspirational moment for Bermuda. Blessing
