Not watching this match either, Part 2

Skype hookup not in place yet, but I'm listening to radio coverage at the moment--offices across the country have closed so staff can watch the match, & even the Senate has adjourned early today for the sake of senatorial football fans.

Meanwhile, over in Manama, Jack Warner has been complaining about "psychological warfare" against the T&T team--the talk this morning was that the Laventille Rhythm Section & the Woodbrook Playboyz steelband, both of which flew to Bahrain for the match, weren't being allowed into the stadium for "security" reasons; also that T&T fans were assigned to poor seats behind one of the goalposts. But I've just heard a radio report that the Laventille Rhythm Section has after all been allowed into the match.
