You know he was the owner of the Caribbean Star and Caribbean Sun Airlines, until he decided to get out of the airlines business. I remember when he visited the Grenada base, he was caught looking proudly on his Dash8s on the tarmac.. He was actually a cool down to earth guy.

Sad little sidelight on the cricketing aspects:-
"While the bulk of the team have cashed their cheques, five of them, including Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan, were believed to have been persuaded to reinvest their winnings with one of Stanford's companies."

Quoting NAV20 (Reply 9): Ironic that, within an hour or so, those two guys will have to set out to bat most of today (in Antigua of all places!) to save WI from defeat in the Third Test by England.........

Sadly that was just the WICB incompetence. As someone mentioned on TMS, imagine what could have been done at the ARG in terms of upgrades with just 10% of the money spent on the white elephant that is the Viv Richards stadium.
