Usain Bolt

Lovely sunrise and a cup of tea never fails. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Usain Bolt. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) What does it mean to be label the fastest man in the world?

2) How important and valuable an asset can sports play in Jamaica’s crime problem? What has it done for you?

3) Is the punishment too lax when it comes to track and field cheats? Will and can the sport ever be clean? How important is winning a medal or breaking records?

4) Seems like everyone is writing a book, an autobiography/memoir, what will make yours different?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Valentino Rossi

Were you ever doing something and a flashback/memory popped in your head? I hate going to the doctor; I’m my father’s daughter. I was putting some lotion on my hands when I remembered going to my mother’s doctor. This guy was practicing with Luke, yeah, Jesus’ disciple. 🙂 Don’t know why I thought about him.

Look who has walk in.

Valentino Rossi. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) You’re second overall to Giacomo Agostini, your 105 to his 122, do you want to tie or surpass that record before seriously considering leaving the sport?

2) You’re very superstitious; are your races won or lost on your pre-race rituals, the bike, or yourself? Or is it a combination of all three? If you miss doing one of your rituals, do you think before or during the race that you’re going to definitely have an even harder time out there?

3) Do you live off speed, that adrenaline rush that you must have even when the season’s over?

4) Jorge Lorenzo, your now former partner at Yamaha, do you see a lot of you in him, the attitude, the risk taking?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Michael Vick

I’ve been having this nagging urge to sleep out on the beach at night. Not a bad idea; if only I wasn’t going to be bothered by Mr. Joe Public with some devious thoughts on his mind. Anyone with a private beach, yep, call me. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Michael Vick. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) I remember some experts saying when you signed with the Philadelphia Eagles that basically there wasn’t much left in the tank, that you’re not getting any younger. Do you feel that you have to constantly prove to them, to others, and most importantly to yourself that you do, that age sometimes is just a number?

2) We live in a world of ifs, so if you weren’t playing now, what would you be doing?

3) Oscar Wilde has a quote in his book, The Picture of Dorian Gray that goes, “The only pity was one had to pay so often for a single fault. One had to pay over and over again, indeed. In her dealings with man, Destiny never closed her accounts.” Do you think that’s the way society will view what happened to you?

4) Are there parts of the old you that you’ve kept or added to the new you?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.

Steven Gerrard

As fatigue was having an argument with my body, I enjoyed a cup of tea, a slice of bread I made, and listened to our local classical music station. The day before, I had asked someone if they wanted a cup of tea, and the person exclaimed, “Do you know how hot out there is?” Well the tea was great. 🙂

Look who has walk in.

Steven Gerrard. So let’s begin. 🙂

1) As captain of both England’s football team and the local club, Liverpool FC, how do you stay motivated, and in turn, motivate the other players?

2) Is there a difference in the pride you feel when playing for country versus club?

3) I’m a Liverpool fan, have been for years, have the off field distractions played a role in the team’s dismal performance?

4) That R word, retirement, do you think about it, or, is it something not on your mind?

5) If the world had a soundtrack, what would be some of its songs?

Thank you.
