The Weekend that was

Hey y'all, let's put the weekend blues to rest. Well, it's also end of the month for most of us so I guess that means more $$$ by end of the week. Let's not get carried away though, here's the weekend's main highlights;
Kenya lost to Nigeria 0-1 as they played a friendly in preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations coming in June with ties against Angola and Swaziland.
Spanish League: Real & Barcelona still lead the table with each team securing victories at their home ties. Sevilla also kept the heat and look to secure another trophy either in the Primera Liga or King's Cup.

Nairobi hosted the Inter-Cities tourney and the Finals were between Nairobi & Dar-es-Salaam (men) and Nairobi vs Kampala at Nyayo National Stadium Basketball Gym.

Cleveland pulled one back as the series heads for Game 4 today at Cleveland. Detroit lead 2-1. In the Western Conference, San Antonio Spurs lead 3-1 against the Utah Jazz who were playing at home. Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 22 points ( 11 being freethrows) while Tim Duncan had 19 points, 9 rebounds & 5 blocks. Tony Parket had a night he'd want to forget with 17 points,2 assists and 3 turn-overs.

The Monaco Grand Prix :McLaren won the team title with Fernando Alonso easily picking the first position ahead of Lewis Hamilton who let him off after team orders not to lead the race.
Controversy is bound to continue as it's alleged that McLaren team ordered Hamilton to slow down and let the no.1 driver for the team earn his second victory. The Formula 1 body will look to investigate these claims as the practice was banned 4 years ago as Ferrari wanted to effect a similar arrangement for Michael Schumacher.

The Kenyan Sevens team won the shield at the Emirates London IRB Sevens tourney by beating Italy 15-0. This was a morale booster though their objective was to fight for the Main Cup. This leads to the final round in Edinburgh.
