first_imgPiers Morgan is going to be devastated— NT. (@THFC88_) August 30, 2019 Fans go wild as Ben Stokes leads England to historic Ashes comeback at Headingley to tie series 1-1 The 28-year-old produced the greatest performance ever seen by an Englishman as he rescued the country from certain defeat to seal a dramatic one-wicket win at Headingley.His performance captured the imagination of the whole country, even non-cricket fans – and has made him a shoe-in to win this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.The all-rounder from Durham revealed he did not have a favourite football team after Newcastle boss Steve Bruce watched his heroics before the win at Tottenham and said there was a place for him in his side.But now Stokes has publicly revealed he is a Spurs fan after the Premier League club sent him their shirt with his England number 55 on the back.Stokes revealed all in a post on Twitter and said: “Never supported a club, always wanted to but never loved football enough really.”My first ever football top was actually a Tottenham one, it was the blue and yellow kit with Thomson on the front.”But after getting sent this I guess I’m now officially a Spurs fan.”His revelation went down with supporters of the North London club – but instantly drew howls of dismay from those who follow other teams.And just a week after cementing his place as England’s favourite sports star, he appears to have gone some way to losing half of his new admirers.From hero to zero in one tweet.— RB_London (@RB_London_RB) August 30, 2019 BEN STOKES has revealed he has decided to become a Tottenham fan – and immediately lost half his fanbase as a result.Stokes became a national hero after his stunning innings fired England to victory over Australia in the Third Ashes Test.1 Ben Stokes has gone from hero to zero after declaring he is now a Tottenham fanCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdBeing a Tottenham fan is hard work,well for all 4 hours of it so far 🤣,had some extremely hilarious tweets though I’m not gonna lie #coys pic.twitter.com/440u9gRYaJ— Ben Stokes (@benstokes38) August 30, 2019 pic.twitter.com/mN1YBVOiLn— Connor Bowers (@SfcBowers) August 30, 2019 pic.twitter.com/Yj5dhOjk9a— evan 》 (@afcevan) August 30, 2019 Your week summed up 😂 pic.twitter.com/AhHuddQTSG— jordy (@j00373w) August 30, 2019 pic.twitter.com/uo7NMt5oVY— Jay (@CLARTUSJAY) August 30, 2019 Most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by Celtic pic.twitter.com/ycmymAWWYg— Jorginho (@George_Bruce97) August 30, 2019 pic.twitter.com/7YoHrWsMUH— 卐Aryaputra卐 (@sagarVerminator) August 30, 2019 pic.twitter.com/P6aM8eWip4— Everton Till I Die!

first_imgThe Yachts of Seabourn today announced that the company will not operate a planned five-month, 15-cruise series of voyages in the Indian Ocean aboard the 208-guest, all-suite yacht Seabourn Legend in late 2010 and early 2011. The vessel will instead be positioned back to the Americas at the end of its Mediterranean season to cruise in the Caribbean for the winter.Calling the decision “regrettable,” Seabourn’s president and CEO Pamela Conover said that while the intended shore-side destinations remain apparently safe for visitors, the high seas routes between them are currently vulnerable to incidents of piracy that have not been adequately controlled.“It makes me sad to have to cancel these cruises,” Conover said. “I personally loved touring Kenya’s game parks, and the islands of the Seychelles, Madagascar and Zanzibar are lovely and exotic destinations where we sincerely had hoped to be able to take our guests. We look forward to a time when the sea routes are controlled enough for us to cruise there for a season.”Seabourn yachting enthusiasts looking for exotic itineraries still have a stunning selection from which to choose. Seabourn Spirit will depart the Mediterranean in November of 2010, sailing through Egypt, the Suez Canal, the Red Sea and Oman to Dubai. Spirit will then continue via India, Thailand and Malaysia to Singapore, to begin a season of cruises exploring Bali, Borneo, Java and the myriad islands of the Java, Flores and Savu Seas. The intimate vessel will even venture southward to Australia’s Northern Territories and Great Barrier Reef.Seabourn Pride, meanwhile, will be cruising in Asia for the full year, and in the autumn will be sailing in China, Thailand and Vietnam, with included or optional extensions to Beijing, Guilin, Cambodia & Laos and the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. Seabourn Odyssey will make a maiden circumnavigation of South America in early 2011, encompassing the Peruvian and Chilean coasts, the Chilean fjords and Patagonia, Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and the Amazon.Seabourn Legend’s voyages among the favored yacht harbors and unspoiled islands of the Caribbean remain a very popular choice for travelers looking for an award-winning small-ship experience in a relaxing and beautiful destination. Itineraries are designed to take advantage of Legend’s intimate size and features, such as the unique fold-out watersports marina that can be deployed in a secluded cove for Seabourn’s signature “Champagne and Caviar in the Surf” beach barbecue. Activities ashore range from snorkeling, yacht-racing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and zip-line adventures to visiting artists’ studios, tony boutiques and strolling or relaxing on world-class beaches. On board, deck barbecues and al fresco dining options make the most of the bucolic climate, as do Dancing and Movies Under the Stars. Week-long itineraries sail between Ft. Lauderdale and St. Thomas, or round trip from St. Thomas.www.seabourn.comlast_img read more
