USA: Football: Los Angeles Rams vs Cincinnati Bengals – Super Bowl LVI (2022)

| Super Bowl LVI Game Highlights – Video – Some Comments on the YouTube entry:

Hats off to the Rams. Well deserving. Stafford spent so many years on a mediocre Lions team. LA finally got their Rams back a couple years ago that left in 1994. This was a feel good story.

Cooper Kupp cemented himself as an LA legend in one season, and proved his doubters wrong in the biggest stage of all, congrats to our MVP

Congrats to the Rams! I am proud of what the Bengals did this year. Not many thought they would go to the SB, so congrats to them for accomplishing so much.

GUYANA: Eddy Grant’s ‘Electric Avenue’ featured in this year’s Super Bowl + Video

The iconic Eddy Grant is a proud Guyanese.

In every one of the Regions of the country, LOVE BLOOMS and BLOSSOMS at VALENTINE; and in-between. Here at the Tourist Resort at Hurakabara, seen in the adjacent photograph, which is located a few miles north of Bartica, on the West Bank of the Essequibo River, guests enjoy a game of volleyball on the sandy beach.

In the distance are islands in Essequibo River. Some of those islands, such as Fort Island at the left, are populated. Many of the other islands in the Essequibo have just a few homesteads. Others are uninhabited. However, the Tourist Resort at Hurakabara, which is actually located on the West Bank of the Essequibo River, can be regarded as special. Those who visit that resort are both Guyanese and foreigners. Quite a number of them are married couples who spend quality time together.        Continue reading
