There are two incompatible destructive sides of man: The destructive sides of human aggression and goodness. Man wishes to help and also hurt his fellowman. Those who desire peace have a valid argument as those who desire war. Both are employed for the advancement of human society and of course lasting peace. This is the paradox of our existence. After college, a little background in philosophy is indeed very dangerous. I came up with a idea that in order to leave a footprint in this world one has to be the best or worst among others in the kind of discipline he’s in. So we are left only with two choices, either to strive to be good or as bad as we can be. Ang mahinumduman ra jud namo sa high school kinsa tong pinaka bright ug pinaka talapungo. Mao pud sa haggerty kinsa tong bayot ug pinaka playboy or kinsa tong pinaka bright or bright ra kay mangopya, the rest are lost in obscurity. Well, until now I have not decided which way to go. The western mean and the eastern middle path are even more difficult.
Wait, what the heck? Where’s Pacquiao in my musing? Well, actually I am not really keen on Pacquiao’s consistent display of religiosity in the ring. I envy how he plucks out millions from the face of his opponents and so his discipline in preparing for the fight. The training is really grueling and it takes months to sharpen those combos that create a halo of stars and fireflies around the head of his opponent. I had watched his amateur fights with not much excitement and now I could hardly imagine how he has metamorphosed into a god-like boxer who makes a legend of himself and surprisingly, his English is also improving. “ Well you now, I am a man, maaaaaan, and so I need also to enjoy”, he quipped when interviewed on CNN about reports of his being outgoing. Naturally as he is becoming so popular the air in his head is also increasing. His opponents succeeded only in pumping air into his head by their missed shots. It’s just natural I think so.
However, I am more afraid of his impact on politics and the message relayed of his actuation. Well, I could not imagine having a president in Pacquiao. And he may be the better choice among the presidentiables now. OH my Gosh! Then we can have our national anthem sung in anyway we like and we will have a ring in the middle of the senate and congress. But I am most excited how the religious community and leaders regard Pacquiao or does JC approve boxing if he were around this time? Does it mean, JC approves of boxing as a good sport. And so when boxers invoke His name before the fight, He favors the one who speaks most of his goodness and kindness? As Rom noticed Mexican and Filipino boxers do. Or maybe JC decides in what round a boxer can be TKOed to please the majority Catholic audience.
I love boxing while Pacquiao is still in the ring as much as I love NBA when MJ was still in the basketball court. Pacman becomes the standard of boxing and honestly we cannot help criticizing other boxers by comparing them to Pacquiao. I am not ashamed to admit that I am an avid Pacquiao fan.
Well, the destructive side of human aggression needs to have an outlet. And I suggest, to our entertainment and excitement, it must be boxing, lest we always have conflicts decided on war and hatred. Unlike in boxing where at least there is a certain rule to follow such as not hitting your opponent below the belt or biting his ears when nothing else works. I may even suggest that conflict in the world maybe best settled in the ring so that we can all enjoy watching, Just imagine how excited we could be, watching Obama and Kim Jong Il or for a substitute Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or the latter against Shimon Peres.

pero sukad sa una ug hangtod karon di gyud gakalimtan ni pacman pag-ampo before and after..that is something very significant. .dili pakitang-tao lang..morag layo pa gyud nig maabtan nga kampeyon..dili kapayason pareha ni ali, tyson, camacho ug dela joya.. (rom)
Tinuod ka. Pakyaw’s secret formula is also obedience. If you watch the replay, you eill notice that Pacman nearly forgot to pray after because of the euphoria of victory. Guess who reminded him to go back to his corner and pray? . Instantly, Manny put aside everything and prayed in his corner on bended knees. Obedience.
When Arum was incanting “the greatest fighter who ever lived” because Pacman continues to learn, Manny reminded Arum in public: “And don’t forget God!” THE FIRST AND GREATEST CATHOLIC. (kroi)
morag gikan nagpaderma si Pac..walay tatsa..mismatch man to..sabagay ang pustahanay dinhi dili man kinsa ang modaug, kung dili: Moabot bag 3rd round si Hatton?
Next in line mga natural welters, Floyd Mayweather or Cotto kung mopatios-os silag timbang like what oscar did..risky pero they will eagerly do that for the megabuck..bahalag maTKO sila ni pacman who is now a natural jr. welter..
Marquez will now have to bloat himself up to reach pac’s weight to get a 3rd chance, pero apeke pa karon..daghan kaayo galinya nga gusto makakwarta bahalag makulata..Pero, for me the more dangerous opponent for Pac is still Marquez at superlightweight. .and probably Mayweather who defeated Oscar after 12 rounds and KOd a bloated Hatton in the 11th round of their welter feud..
Taym pa, Haggies, mga katoliko man ning mga boksingeroha. ..Chicano and Pinoy..sa di pa magsinumbagay, magnovena! hehehe…Morales and the rest of the chicano boxers and Pac had rosaries, and made signs of the cross before the fight…bahalag nagkadugo..grabe no, ikaw kuno Ginoo, kinsay imong paboran sa ila?
Bitaw, adtong napilde si Pac ni Morales diin silang duha nagkadugo ang nawong..naa koy gisulat nga gusto ko ipaambit kaninyo mahitungod niining ginaingon nga “the sweet science of boxing” (rom)
