Pac Man Euphoria

Everything stopped for at least 5 hours yesterday in the Philippines. (Not for Zaki since she was her usual hyperactive self complete with intermittent bursts of shrieks and screams which could have floored even trained boxers if they spend a day with her.) This time though it is not due to some political disturbance nor natural calamity. This one is a result of Pac Man - Manny Pacquiao's historic 10th round TKO of future boxing Hall of Famer and never-been-officially-floored-before Erik Morales.

This brings back memories of many years past when I first got a glimpse of Pac doing the local boxing circuit. I was amazed at how a boxer of humble roots possess a tremendous left punch like a little Tyson. One-dimensional as boxing experts say (and belittle) but effective nonetheless. Look for him improving his place at the latest pound-for-pound rankings.

Anyway, here's to Filipinos everywhere! Unity is truly possible even if only for a day or two courtesy of Pac.
