Good grief Filipinos!
Get a grip on reality,
Try reading your comments and
realize how insane your musings are!
After reading too many
who will win the
hatton : pacquiao fight, I am still
smirking from how unbelievable and
naive these simpletons are.
Hey, i am Filipino with a valid
recently renewed passport even,
but being a kababayan of manny
does not entitle me to bad mouth
ricky hatton or predict that manny
will win just because millions of
filipinos are praying for him!
That is just lame.
Why cant they analyze fully?
or at least give an intelligent
opinion based on facts not whims
Is it because we want to believe
that Manny is a demigod who would
beat up all these foreigners who
have desecrated the boxing ring
with their meer presence?
Come to think of it,
on a subliminal level,
Manny is a modern day hero getting
back at these 'colonizers' for
raping ang pillaging the mother land.
In a way we are getting back at them,
even if its just boxing.
But still lambasting the opponent
while inflating the stats of our
own champion means shit in the ring
and so will our prayers not unless
god decides to trip Hatton 9x or
make his hair fall off on a whim
or loosen his gloves.
Boxing is a bloody contact sport,
fighters prepare for it.
Discipline in training is
the key in winning.
But it is a fight between players not of nations.
But hell yeah manny does appreciate
your shout-outs of support from
every corner in the world except outerspace
(the only place, we dont
have a contingent of Filipinos ...yet)
Words of support inspire the Pacman
so keep on shouting, keep on
whatever form of support you are doing,
Manny appreciates it.
As for my opinion as much as
i want Manny to win, because
the crime rate goes down when
he is fighting,
I think with all the pummeling
and taunting of Hatton and the
British hooligans, he might loose
this time around.
We are a nation of hope though,
and I am still hoping that Manny
can beat the odds and beat
the guy into submission.
