    That was a very awkward moment – stopping a concert (and MID SONG) to make this presentation. It was definitely a damper on the vibe. Nice gesture but really bad timing.

      Your kidding? Really mid-concert for a photo-op! Shoulda been done at the start or during the break. Back in the day he would’ve been licked with becks bottles for stopping the party for a political promo. But, I guess that’s why they serve beers in cups now.

    • Oh please says:

      It really wasn’t abig deal. The crowd cheered when he was presented with the gifts and the show resumed.

    SMH…..PLP governing through a photo ops. Can you spend less time taking pictures and more time actually doing something different from UBP/OBA.

    FFS! Keep politics OUT of at least Cup Match! we’re all there to have fun and thse bozos stop the show. You just lost my vote.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      It seems as though this has been the most nastily politicized Cup Match in history and the colonel’s remarks are only a small part of it .
      Too late to make that request I’m afraid .
