Zen-Ruffinen on short list for Euro 2008
Telegraph.co.uk – Dec 19, 2002
Blatter hailed this as a great victory. Zen-Ruffinen said he was surprised that the prosecutor did not call on any of the complainants to give evidence and questioned only four witness, including Blatter. Zen-Ruffinen does not regret acting against Blatter and even if he is not put in charge of Euro 2008, he has a project that he will announce soon. Both come from the Sion mountain area of Switzerland and Blatter, who has increasingly taken a triumphalist attitude, has even suggested that Zen-Ruffinen should ask forgiveness for making charges against him. Zen-Ruffinen, however, feels in no mood to do so, despite the fact that his allies in the struggle against the FIFA president have all but disappeared since Blatter’s triumph.

But on 6 January he said he had been a member but not paid any dues or attended any meetings for more than 10 years. Freemasonry and football are two subjects which have long occupied conspiratorial fans of Scotland’s national game for decades. However, one was forgotten and the other propelled into the spotlight on 23 January when Mr McConnell confirmed to MSPs that the executive would not back a solo bid for the Euro 2008 football championships. He told MSPs: “We have concluded that to create four 30,000 seat stadiums – on top of our excellent facilities at Murrayfield, Hampden, Ibrox and Celtic Park – is simply not practical or desirable. ”

The first minister did back a joint bid for the prestigious tournament with the Republic of Ireland and so kick-started an optimistic but ultimately unrequited 11-month flirtation with Uefa.

Maybe I could be there as manager of Austria! “I suppose you can’t rule out politics being involved but I am sure we will do a good job. ” He added: “Once you are awarded a tournament like that, you can start building afresh. “We already have the stadia and good facilities, but perhaps not sufficient for big tournaments. But work is already under way at extending grounds and building brand new ones. “The facilities are already good in Scotland but I’m sure something similar would have happened to improve them further had their bid won. ” Flogel was a member of the Jambos’ Scottish Cup-winning team in 1998 and he is targeting more silverware with Austria Vienna currently a massive 13 points clear at the top of the first division. With the team doing so well he admits it has made it easier for him readjusting to his new surroundings.

Abdelbaset ali Mohmed al-Megrahi will serve a sentence of at least 20 years in a specially-converted unit at Glasgow’s Barlinnie Prison. Gaddafi’s cafe

Megrahi showed no emotion as he heard the outcome from the five judges at the special Scottish Court in the Netherlands. He had been jailed for life in January 2001 for the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, which exploded over the Scottish border town of Lockerbie in December 1988, leading to the deaths of 270 people… The new city beat off competition from Ayr, Paisley and Dumfries, in Scotland, to be one of the five towns across the UK to be recognised. However, Scotland’s much-vaunted bid to hold the Euro 2008 football championships suffered a set back. First Minister Jack McConnell said the executive had been “looking long and hard” at the possibility of a bid. Hurricane-force winds

An announcement from football governing body Uefa that any country wanting to host the event would need eight 30,000-seater stadia had made it impractical for Scotland to bid alone, he said.

Irish Independent – Dec 23, 2002
A Mercedes car hired by the Irish Embassy in London to collect Sports Minister Jim McDaid at Birmingham airport and ferry him to Cheltenham last year cost €2,000. Last night, Mr McDaid said he accepted that €2,000 seemed a lot for such a car journey and the only explanation he could envisage was that someone else may have used the car without his knowledge. On another occasion the €5,500-per-hour Government jet was used to fly the minister to Arlanda, Sweden, to drum up support for Ireland’s ill-fated bid to stage Euro 2008. Mr McDaid said he would have preferred not to have gone. A Government press spokeswoman yesterday disputed the suggestion that Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, Tanaiste Mary Harney and Finance Minister Charlie McCreevy had enjoyed a €128-a-head breakfast before last year’s Budget. She said a number of officials would also have attended the breakfast which cost a total of €378. The information shows that the Taoiseach spent more than €64,000 on entertainment in the past year, including more than €3,000 on a reception to mark the 29th Dail and €2,783 on a reception for former Dail deputies.

We can host Euro 2012
Irish Independent – Dec 17, 2002
I would propose one stadium each for the following cities: Dublin; Cork; Belfast; Glasgow; Edinburgh; Aberdeen; Dundee; Cardiff. Many of these cities already have the required facilities in place and all have great potential for hosting such a tournament. And it would be a de facto Celtic bid, encompassing not only Northern Ireland and the Republic but Scotland and Wales too. Stephen Keegan, Killiney Avenue, Co Dublin.

nba and mlb teams for patriotismConsidering the legal defenses the NFL has at their disposal (which Judge Brody acknowledged in her order granting preliminary approval of the settlement), it’s remarkable that we are on the cusp of receiving these tremendous benefits in the first place. We urge those who would appeal this agreement to reconsider. Consult the representation agreement. Some representation agreements have a provision outlining the circumstances under which the agent may be fired and how termination is to be communicated. If your contract contains a termination clause outlining how to fire your acting agent, you must follow these directions as they are binding and will be honored by a judge unless they are found to be contrary to contract law.Though quelites have traditionally been thought of in Mexico more as peasant food, Tellez said, “I think that perception is changing. More and more people are realizing that they’re packed with nutrients, they’re delicious, and they’re relatively inexpensive.” She attributes the changing attitudes to an embrace of Mexican cooking. “For a long time in Mexico it was considered more fashionable to look outward, and to look at European cuisines, and to look at the United States. In the past 20 to 30 years, there were chefs who really started to wholesale football jerseys plant the seeds of looking inward, reexamining the cuisine, looking at the rich tradition that Mexican food really has, and for the first time saying, hey, this is awesome.”Without faith it is impossible to please God.
