“I TOOK the deal of a lifetime for my country...” declared Arthur Joseph moments after winning a surprise prize on the NBC game show Let’s Make a Deal on Wednesday night.
Apart from the US$70,700 he won, the US-based Point Fortin man accepted a deal that included a basketball court in his native Trinidad, courtesy the 2006 NBA champs The Miami Heat.
Yesterday, in a telephone interview from his office at Carnival Cruise Lines where he works as a personal vacation planner in Miami, Joseph recalled how he gave up his pursuit of the ultimate US$1million prize to do something meaningful for his country.
“What would you give up a million dollars for?” he asked rhetorically.
“I did it for my country. If that offer of a basketball court wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have done it.
“My philosophy has always been: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
You know creole people after all the most of them are really dotish. But it takes a thinkin white man to outfox ah stupid nigga.
As dat cunnie hear basketball (that would mean sneakers too), Miami Heat, Shaq, Championship Bling and enough cash to buy Fry turkey legs and chicken the muder cunt get totolbay.
Anyhow he could come and team up wid Brian Manning nad he professional Basket ball league, who will surely rip off the 70 thou US cash from the asshole.
