The 2014 Lebanese Basketball Season is proving to be the best in years and the clash everyone’s been waiting for is happening tonight between Hekmeh and Riyadi at 6pm. Nothing can make these two teams and their fans love each other, even if the game is on Valentine, but that’s not what bothers me as such rivalries are good for the sport. What really bothers me is the unsportsmanlike conduct that we witness from one of the teams or both or from the fans in almost every game between the two sides.
Hate each other all you want but respect the sport and play the damn game! I am not cheering for any side tonight. Who are you with?
Jacky Chamoun is a Lebanese Alpine Skier and is currently representing Lebanon at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. She happens to be very sexy as well and posed last year topless for a ski-theme calendar taken by six-time Mexican Olympic skier Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe.
For some reasons, the news just got to the Lebanese Media, even though it’s been out for at least 10 days and it is even mentioned on Jacky’s profile on the Sochi 2014 website.
There’s a video of her photo session being shared online but I won’t bother share it. She’s representing Lebanon, she’s hot and free to do whatever she likes so Good Luck to you Jacky!
Two Lebanese Athletes will be competing at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Jacky Chamoun and Alexander Mohbat, both in Alpine Skiing. I was surprised not to see Chirine Njeim’s name on that list, but according to this article, The Lebanese Federation picked Jacky over her. I have to say this is very weird as Chirine is the best Lebanese skier we’ve got and even Jacky admits it:
“Chirine is the best skier in Lebanon,” she said. “Of course, I always think if Chirine could have been in my place maybe she could have made a better result for Lebanon.”
In all cases, the best of luck to Jacky and Alexandre!
It snowed in the last couple of days but not enough for the slopes to open again (At least not in Mzaar) and the sunny weather is already back. I remember hearing predictions about this winter being the toughest in years but it doesn’t feel like winter at all.
Here are pictures from the past couple of years taken by SkiLeb webcams:
After a long and painful wait, the Lebanese League will kick off officially at the end of the current month. As far as the FIBA ban is concerned, it’s just a matter of time before it gets lifted as we have a new federation.
Seven-times F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher is fighting for his life after an off-piste skiing accident in the French Alps resort of Meribel. Michael hit his head on a rock and suffered head trauma with coma that needed prompt neurosurgical treatment.
I’ve become addicted to F1 because of Michael Schumacher. I’ve seen him win back to back championships with Benetton in 1994 and 1995, supported him during his tough Ferrari debut, the horrible crash he had in 1999 then his majestic years from 2000 to 2004 where he clinched 5 consecutive championships. I enjoyed watching him race with Mercedes even though I knew he wouldn’t win a championship. I even flew to Monza in Italy to watch him live at least once in my life before he retires.
He’s been an inspiration to millions (including myself) around the world, despite few unfortunate incidents. He’s a great skier, footballer and motorcycle driver as well. He also won the Race of Champions several times along with recent F1 champion Sebastian Vettel. To sum it up and in my personal opinion, he’s the greatest driver in the history of Formula1.
Let’s hope his condition improves today and he gets better very soon.

The tweetup was supposed to take place last Saturday but we had to postpone it a week because of the Alexa storm. As mentioned earlier, we will be picking up the teams this time and they are almost full already. Nevertheless, everyone’s welcome to join as a lot of tweeps are coming just to watch the game and have fun.
The game is scheduled on Saturday at 8pm at V-club In Jal el Dib in Beirut.

Watch Duncan Zuur showing off his wakeboarding skills inside Jeita’s Grotto. Crazy Stuff from Duncan and Red Bull!
Under the name “Red Bull Awaken the Grotto”, the famous Dutch wakeboarder performed incredible wakeboarding tricks inside the grotto’s lower chamber! This unique ride, held in the grotto for the first time, took place during Zuur’s visit to Lebanon. His stunts included jumps and slides off a boat ramp, which was especially set up in the water.
