Because someone wrote about Pacquiao

April 3, 2010 4:12am CST
Well, I never thought this'd be the day I'd write about our homegrown hero. First off, I was never really a big fan of Pacquiao but I admire the guy. His rags to riches story and his continuing success has bolstered the hopes of our disenchanted people. Yes, it is possible to be hugely successful even if you cam from nothing. All it really takes is hard work. Again I'm not a big fan but I respect the guy for what he's done for the masses. My bassist and almost everyone around me are fanatics though. They never miss a fight nor a juicy snippet. The one thing I do know of is this... His success inside the ring has made him a subject for ridicule and I would like to see his detractors speak their mind to him in person. Let's see if they have the guts to face him and tell him to his face everything they've said just to ride on his fame. Cowards, hiding behind their anonymity or fame just to bring another person down. This guy is now hugely successful, he may not have been the brightest lamp in the shed but he's the wisest kid on the block. Hmmm I think I may have some hidden fanboy in me. Now about Mayweather, I think this guy's truly afraid of going the same direction as everyone else who foolishly took on our guy from the Philipines. Down and out. I wonder if he wakes up in the middle of the night screaming for daddy after having a nightmare of getting a flurry of punches from the GenSan fighter. And maybe Adam Carolla should be next on Pacquiao's list. That comedian who's just not funny at all. Pacquiao in and out of the ring will continue to succeed if he employs his street smarts at all times

adam cannot really accept that a country dependent on overseas workers will be the king of boxing in one of the world's richest and greatest nation. if pac was an american, then he is the best ever. i dont even think pacman will break through the top 20 barrier of boxing's all time greatest.

Same as you i have never been a big fan of Pacquiao. But one has got to be proud of what he has done for boxing while donning our flag. Racism, Prejudice and Envy has always been around anyone who has success written all over him. Pacquiao is no exemption. No matter how good of an image you try to portray, there will always be haters (like that Adam Carolla nobody) and there will always be plotting sissies (like the ever so jealous Mayweather). It is what spices up are lives. Every hero has an antagonist. I read an article the other day stating that Adam has apologized for his comments about Pacquiao and the Philippines. What a jackass. I'd want to see Pacquiao giving him 12 rounds of hell inside the right, THAT would be hilarious. :D

yeah, he's considered the number one boxer in the arena and the biggest crowd drawer. I guess he was also the most famous among the boxers to date.a very down to earth guy.many praises had been said to him which he gives back to his Creator a very humble man.and we are really proud to say he is a kabayan of ours.we salute you bay...
