Hope everyone had a good weekend. I see that our golden boy Obadele Thompson is back in the land, winning his 200m race last night at the Williams Industries National Track and Field Championships at the National Stadium.
You have to love Obadele, though, 'cause he sure knows how to keep a secret. When journalists here asked him about his marriage to Olympic sprinter Marion Jones, he just smiled and shook his head. Only the gold ring on his finger spoke volumes. Not a picture of the happy couple's wedding can be found online, and trust me, I checked.
Oba's a smart guy though. Why blab all his business for free, when Sports Illustrated or Newsweek or some such publication would be willing to pay mucho dinero for an exclusive? And don't forget, Olympics are due next year so athletes like Oba and Marion will be in focus.
Anyhoo, from what I can see, an exclusive mega-deal would be welcome right about now...
Good luck, Oba, Marion and your little ones.
