Dia duit Barack...

Well, thats it, Barack Obama is the first black president of the United States of America.

I have seen some great things in my 30 odd years... The first Space Shuttle mission, The fall of the Iron Curtain, relative peace in Northern Ireland, Nelson Mandela a free man, my niece, then my nephew.........

Where does this rank with them? Hmmm... Well it is certainly up there with the best of them. Depending on his term of office, this could rank as the greatest so far.

I read something interesting today. Jamie Foxx said "Now we don’t have an excuse. We can’t say it’s the man’s fault when you are the man.”

Looking back though.. It will probably never ever beat Ray Houghtons looping header of Peter Shilton at 15:36 on the 12th of June 1988 in the Neckarstadion in Stuttgart.
