first_imgThe love between Phish and Bernie Sanders is strong. The Presidential candidate recently praised Phish as “one of the great bands of this country,” as the group’s drummer, Jon Fishman, has been hot on the campaign trail from the very beginning.Apparently Fishman is so involved with the campaign, that he’ll be hosting his own event. According to NBC 10, Fishman will appear at North Bowl at 909 N. 2nd St tomorrow night, from 9pm through midnight. He’ll be greeting supporters and encouraging citizens to register and vote in the Pennsylvania primary, which is scheduled for April 26th.Monday is also the deadline for PA voters to register, in order to be eligible for the primary. Fishman has been involved with Sanders’ campaign from the getgo, as he said back in August of 2015, “This is the political equivalent of having the ability to draft Michael Jordan coming out of the University of North Carolina. It’s our turn to pick, and Michael Jordan is available.” While Fishman has performed at a number of Sanders events, this seems to be the first that he’ll be leading himself. Make sure to get out and vote!last_img read more

The Nigerian International played for Auxerre in France before moving to Italy where he played for both Inter and AC Milan, eventually landing in England on loan and then moving on to Germany and Serbia.He was best known for incredible hair and his green and white braids made him famous in the 1998 World Cup, also playing for his country in the 2002 edition and winning the Olympics in 1996.But for all he achieved in reality on the pitch the defender, who could play on the left as well as in the centre, was arguably known best for being available for free at the beginning of Championship Manager 01/02- arguably the best version of the football sim, thanks in some part to nostalgia:Of course we can’t boil all his career down simply to a game but it’s true that anyone in their late 20s and early 30s, possibly beyond, who loved the serial of games must have had a save with West.Whether you started with a lower league team or one of Europe’s elite there was always the chance to sign the former Inter man on a free transfer at the beginning of the game and there was a chance you’d bag him. In another reality somewhere, Super Eagles legend Taribo West became the greatest defender that the world has ever seen.Whether that reality existed in your computer or a friend’s it definitely happened. We wish the greatest free transfer the game has ever seen a happy birthday!Footballers have a lot to thank Jean-Marc Bosman for.
