If you are into American football –  the Kansas City Chiefs have pulled off an epic Super Bowl comeback – from 20-10 to 31-20 -last winning 50 years ago! Last night’s show being one of the most entertaining. 
There won’t be that kind of a comeback story at the Cricket U19 World Cup – but there is a fight for 5th place as the West Indies take on Australia on Friday. A great opportunity for Kimani and his team to leave on a high.
On a high right now is Julien Alfred who continues to do the region proud  recently clocking the fastest indoor time ever for a Caribbean U20 woman. The athlete to look out for this year. 
And on a programme note – Calabash TV celebrate the spirit of volunteerism as the Good News Project completed another three homes in St. Lucia. They have been visiting St. Lucia for the past 30 years building homes for persons in need. Here is that CTV report
And congratulations to Lady Leen who just celebrated 30 years in Calypso. She held a ceremony to mark that milestone.In the meantime here are this week’s headlines
