Yea man!

Bolt smashes the 200 metres record, and runs 19.30 seconds, and I told people last night that it was going to go. Him run and no chest thumping, but a real thumping of the track world. I screamed and jumped like a maniac.

I have to run to the airport now, 2 hours away, and I hear that street parties are planned in Kingston. I may not leave the islands but for that I would have not one regret for every minute that I have spent here for the last 2 weeks.

As we are all saying, gun man mus' pu' down you gun now.

Did you see how Bolt showed Spearman how to do the nuh linger and gully creeper dance. Sweet. One world. One love.

Yea man!
