Piers Morgan tweets Jamaica Observer
CELEBRITY British journalist Piers Morgan yesterday featured the Jamaica Observer in his popular tweets and, in the process, gave Jamaica another plug.
Morgan, known for hosting his own show on CNN recently, and for judging television talent contests -- America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent -- yesterday posted the report in Friday's Observer of his cricketing exploits in the Beefy Bash Twenty20 match in St Kitts Tuesday night.
"Big news in Jamaica," Morgan, the former Daily Mirror editor, tweeted over a photo of the Observer page with the report and a shot of the newspaper's front page showing the masthead.
The Observer report was headlined 'Television's Piers Morgan bowls Lara for duck' and carried the sub-headline '...Then hits the batting legend for a six in T20 charity match'.
The match, organised by Sir Ian Botham, was played at Warner Park in front of a capacity audience and saw Morgan starring with ball and bat to give his team a thrilling six-wicket victory, with one ball to spare, over Lara's team.
In the past, Morgan has tweeted about events involving Jamaicans, most notably Tessanne Chin's performances on The Voice and the achievements of jamaican athletes, including Usain Bolt. His comments on those occasions usually included the word 'Boom!'
His last such tweet was after Bolt anchored Jamaica's men's 4x100m team to victory at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
His comment drew a critical query from one of his followers who asked why he used the word, given that he's not Jamaican.
To that Morgan responded: 'Mi cum yah fi drink milk, mi no cum yah fi count cow'.
