|Sports / The Soccer Match Nigerians Will Never Forget (PHOTOS) by ashybabs(m): 2:19pm On Jun 30|
If you were brought up in Nigeria, you have probably heard about the legendary football match between Nigerian and India.
It was rumoured that, it was the 'Nigeria v India' soccer game that led to the nation of India to become banned from playing soccer by the FIFA Body.
Legend has it! India’s 99-1 win over Nigeria was no ordinary soccer game
The extra ordinary win over Nigeria, raised so many eye brows as regards to the prowess of the Indian team.
Many believed that the football team used jazz (Voodoo) to cover the eyes of the world.
And Nigeria, one of the brightest footballing nation had become a victim. Nigeria was thrashed like kindergarten kids playing against Bayern Munich senoir team. The score line ended 99-1 in favour of India.
From what I heard, the Indians scored with every shot on target because Nigerian players could not see the Indians on the pitch. Some accounts report that when the indians fired a shot, the ball would multiply into seven leaving the Nigerian Goalie bewildered.
Rumour has it that on occasion the ball would metamorphose into a lion and the keeper would take flight leaving an empty post.
By the time the indians where finished with us, they they had scored 99 goals against Nigeria. However pulling one back, phew! The nigerian team got a last minute penalty which Balogun Thunder took. As soon as he scored, Thunder Balogun died.
However, Growing up I realise this must be a fable. Whoever concocted such, must have taken us for a ride.
There is No need to check online, there isn't any such record. no footage on youtube or any other archives because lt never happened.
However what remains a mystery, yet to this day- is why India were banned from football, in all the years they were inactive.
Food for thought!
So share with us, What story did you hear about the legendary football match between Nigeria and India?

|Romance / See 12 Wealthy Celebrities Who Are Stingy by ashybabs(m): 10:58am On May 23|
Ferraris, and million-dollar contracts deals. even among the rich and famous celebrities, there are those who are exceedingly frugal.
For instance, did you know many multi-millionaires simply can’t let go of their couponing habits? Or that tech billionaires still like to argue with hotels regarding in-room charges? Some famous athletes refuse to tip servers and waitresses. It seems a bit strange — having all the money in the world but remaining so stingy with it.
Being frugal does have its advantages. And for some people, frugality has proven to be a way that actually paves the road to a better life. Many celebrities, though rich now, grew up under drastically different conditions. Keeping that in mind, perhaps their stinginess is a deep-rooted way of making sure they don’t return to their roots.
So, who are some of these people? They include actors, athletes, and business icons. Frugality knows no bounds, as you’ll see on the following pages. Here are 12 celebrities who are famously tight with their money, starting with one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
When he’s not playing the Wolf of Wall Street or battling the elements and giant bears, Leonardo DiCaprio is living the good life as one of the most famous celebrities in the world. He’s a rich man — he owns his own private island, after all — but in some ways, he’s frugal. He won’t fly on private jets, for example. He also drives a Toyota Prius, a thrifty option given that he could have just about any other vehicle on the planet.
2. Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan has faded from the public spotlight since his retirement, but he’s still mind-bogglingly rich. In fact, he’s the highest-paid athlete in history. He earned more than $1.7 billion during his playing days. But he’s not a high-spender. He’s actually notorious for being cheap — and a bad tipper. According to former rival Charles Barkley, Jordan also refused to give money to the homeless.
3. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is a relatively new celebrity, at least compared to many others on this list. But she’s made a significant amount of money over the past several years — money that she doesn’t part with easily. Exhibit A: She loves coupons. That seems like a strange habit for a multi-millionaire, but it’s true. She’s a couponer. And she likes to bargain when shopping for clothes. She has even tweeted about it.
