Before even the Carling Cup match kicked off between these two rivals, events outside the stadium were heating up as a 44 year old man was stabbed in the chest and taken to hosptial. If this alone wasn’t a reason to cancel the match i dont know what is. From fans flooding the pitch several times during and after the game, to racist monkey chants aimed at the black players, this match had it all.

The Ministry of Education in Kuwait has confirmed that schools/institutions of nursery, pre-school and  kindergarten will be postponed untill the 10th of September which is a Thursday. Ultimately meaning that most kids will not be going to school until the following Sunday, the 13th of September. So will these 2 weeks actually help our kids not contract Swine Flu? I also heard that even the normal flu shot is unavailable in any government or private hospital/clinic in Kuwait until next month, so maybe that might have something to do with it.

UPDATE : The above also goes for the students with special needs of all ages.
