Al-Riyadi Beirut The Team To Beat This Year

Posted By :

I’ve been watching some of the Houssam Eddin Hariri Tournament games in the past week and the Riyadi team, which I never supported to be honest, is way ahead of the competition this year. I know they’ve been dominant for years but this year’s lineup is unstoppable when compared to the other teams, specially the 21-year-old shooting guard Ahmad Ibrahim who joined Riyadi last year.

The other teams that might threaten Riyadi this year are Amchit and Mouttahed. Both have strong lineups and Mouttahed has a great coach (Joe Moujaess). As far as Hekmeh is concerned, their problems are far from over and I am afraid we might not see a Sagesse team this year.

Here’s the list of the key players at Riyadi this year:
– Ismail Ahmad
– Jean Abdel Nour
– Ahmad Ibrahim
– Roy Samaha
– Ali Haidar
– Amir Saoud
– Miguel Martinez
– Omar Turk
– Izzat Kaissi
– Wael Arakji
– Ali Mahmoud

The World’s Greatest Pink Floyd Show At The Forum De Beyrouth

It looks like we have a lot of Pink Floyd fans in Lebanon as Brit Floyd is coming back for the third year in a row. Even though I am a huge fan, I haven’t been able to attend the past couple of years but I am not missing it for the world this year!

Here are some of my favorite Pink Floyd songs:
Hey You
Wish You Were Here
Run Like Hell
Comfortably Numb
Another Brick In The Wall
Us and Them

You can buy tickets [Here].

P-U-L-S-E 2013, The Pink Floyd Ultimate Light & Sound Experience, a stunning new three hour show featuring note-for-note performances of five full album sides, including ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘Animals’, ‘The Wall’, ‘The Division Bell’, and, in celebration of the 40th anniversary, Pink Floyd’s classic defining album, ‘The Dark Side of The Moon’. Inspired by the record breaking 1994 ‘Division Bell’ Tour and including the trademark Pink Floyd arch and circle light show, and brand new Floydian animation and projection, P-U-L-S-E 2013 will be Brit Floyd’s Biggest Show Yet !!!

British Ambassador to Lebanon Tom Fletcher wrote an open letter to Lebanon on its 70th Independence Day, only to be followed by an open letter (meant as satire) from Lebanon to Britain courtesy of KarlRemarks.

The video above is what the Ambassador had to say about Karl’s letter.

I love reading Karl and Fletcher and I am loving these exchanges!
