Defoe's cousin stabbed to death

Tottenham's Jermain Defoe says he is "shocked and saddened" after his cousin was stabbed to death.

It is the second family tragedy to hit the England forward in less than three years.

Allan Edgar, Defoe's first cousin twice removed, was knifed in the neck during a robbery in St Lucia. The dead man is said to have been in his seventies.

Defoe's half-brother, Jade, 26, received fatal injuries in a street attack in April 2009. He died from head injuries four days after being attacked in Leytonstone, east London.

Defoe said: "I am shocked and saddened by the tragic news of my cousin's murder in the close-knit town which my family is from in St Lucia.

"I want to again highlight the desperate need for us to pull together - the world over - to tackle knife crime and teach everyone how sacred a life is."

His mother, Sandra St Helen, from Chigwell, Essex, said: "It was a very close relative. I was with my cousin a couple of months ago. We are a big family."


How horrible. My thoughts are with him and his family.

Terry will face court charge of racial abuse.

John Terry, who has denied making a racial slur against Anton Ferdinand, with the QPR player

England captain John Terry will be charged with the alleged racial abuse of QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

The Crown Prosecution Service say there is sufficient evidence for the Chelsea star to face trial over alleged comments to the defender in a Barclays Premier League match at Loftus Road on October 23.

Alison Saunders, Chief Crown Prosecutor for London said:

“I have today advised the Metropolitan Police Service that John Terry should be prosecuted for a racially aggravated public order offence following comments allegedly made during a Premier League football match between Queen’s Park Rangers and Chelsea on 23 October 2011.

“The decision was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors and after careful consideration of all the evidence, I am satisfied there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and it is in the public interest to prosecute this case.

“Mr Terry will appear before West London Magistrates’ Court on 1 February 2012.

“He is now summonsed with a criminal offence and has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that nothing should be reported which could prejudice his trial.”

The news comes days after new footage was handed to prosecutors, who have been considering whether there is enough evidence to bring charges against the footballer.

Portland Timbers Sal Zizzo opens a food cart

Food Cart Review: Zizzo’s FC

The off-the-clock dabblings of pro athletes can get ugly: Michael Jordan’s fiendish gambling, Michael Vick’s gruesome dog-killing, Tiger Woods’ compulsive boning of soft-chinned floozies. Bless his heart, Portland Timbers midfielder Sal Zizzo just wants to sell reasonably priced meatball subs. That simple dream came to fruition last month with the opening of Zizzo’s FC, a ultramarine Italian wagon parked downtown that peddles three sandwiches along with fried calamari, a meaty baked pasta and ruggedly crisp chocolate cannoli. Demand is high: The wait for a Tuesday lunch stretched 30 minutes despite the cook’s obvious efficiency. Lightly toasted hoagie rolls weren’t sturdy enough for the loads asked of them—sliced meatballs bathed in a zesty sauce, and the caprese’s thick slices of tomato and gummy mozzarella. The caprese’s roll, softened by a squirt of balsamic vinegar, dissolved back into batter. (Turning the vinegar into a syrupy reduction and toasting the bun until crusty would help.) Kudos to Zizzo for drawing people in the colder months. The next cart was empty and renting for the princely sum of $75 a day, so someone like Rooney or Ronaldo could feasibly open Chav’s Chip Shoppe or a Bacalhau à Braz cart without risking bankruptcy. The Timbers Army will find a perfect pass toward an empty net. Less partisan diners might wish to play the field.

Order this: Salsiccia sandwich ($6).
I’ll pass: Caprese sandwich ($6).

EAT: Cart pod at Southwest 9th Avenue and Alder Street. 11 am-4 pm Monday-Saturday.

I'll try your salsiccica any time Sal!
