Pacman Cometh


I was passed a script to my boss for approval and the script is about two women that would face each other in a boxing bout.

My boss thinks the phrases I wrote had double meanings.


Hmm?

GET DOWN AND DIRTY
GIRL ON GIRL ACTION
HARDCORE ACTION
BLOW BY BLOW ACTION
PAIN OVER PLEASURE
BLOW YOU AWAY
GO HEAD TO HEAD
PUMPED UP
BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS

I just can’t see the point (although “Blow by Blow action” won).

Manny Pacquiao will defy odds anew as he faces Miguel Cotto for his seventh division championship. Unlike past fights, Pacquiao is not the underdog. The only thing that would bother him is his size. Cotto is a natural welterweight while Manny’s body is designed to be quicker.

But there is a catch: it’s alarming to see Pacquiao carry the power he nurtured as a flyweight all the way to the 140-147 level. You will see what I’m talking about in this link:

Very, very in-depth analysis.

Anyway, whoever says Cotto would win is either not Filipino or a Pinoy without any sense of national pride. Yes, this is our curse – we are and should be biased. But still, the odds favor Pacman. We have seen him grow from an overly excited boxer with minimal defense to a fighter that can destroy you with either fists and with quickness for both offense and defense.

Honestly, I can see Pacquiao favored if he plays his game and wins a decision. I can also see Pacman getting a wicked fist injected to Cotto at the start of the third round. Cotto needs to play the game at his pace because if he can’t Pacquiao will prey on him.

I hope Manny wins this fight because the nation will not want to see the country’s pride and joy down on the mat.

Anyway, expect Sunday to be crime free.

And let’s wish Pacman all the best.
