Somebody told me that this may be spam.

But why take a chance? So I've sold my house, and sent them a $500,000 deposit on an apartment.

If it was the Ghana ski team, I might have thought differently...

Weems,since BEARS of a feather,flock together, and since we all look out for the other BEARS, I did a Google search for "the Nigerian ski team". Low and behold I didn't find one. Now Google may be out of touch on this issue, but I hope that you can stop payment on that $500.00 deposit. Good luck:.

A few years back we had a Fijian ski team training in Wanaka. They only came the one year, they found it too cold. I think they were funded by the government, and none had ever skied before. They were easy to pick on the slopes, they all wore white overalls (not one pieces), almost looked like those forensic suits, and with their darks skins and big white teeth smiles, they stood out from the crowd. They were having more fun on the slopes than eveyone else put together, and could actually get thru a few gates after their two weeks. That might be a better opportunity for Weems, an apartment in Fiji might be a better investment than Nigeria, coup or no coup.

I love the Fijians--very elegant and very open smiles.

Smuggle some of their water out.

WTFH, you know the Ghana ski team doesn't need a coach. Kwame is entirely self-sufficient; a pair of skis, a bible and he's off and running ... just try not to share a slope with him, or you may need the good book.

Nigeria must be booming. I get offers everyday for business opportunities that are fantastic. I could hardly keep up with them so I programmed my e-mail to respond automatically. I have over 1100 Nigerian partners after only 3 weeks, and I had to take a second mortgage and cash in my 401k to make the up front payments, but when all these deals come through, I'll never have to work again!

weems -

When you get to Nigeria can you check on my Nigerian bride? I sent her money a couple times to get her visa straightened out and to help her sick mother but I haven't heard from her in a while.

They offered her to me as part of the deal. Sorry, dude. Hope you get your money back.

Well my first move as head coach would be to move the entire team to the French Alps for training.
