Today is a big day for my husband. Nope, it’s not our anniversary! It’s also not his birthday. It’s because today was Game 7 for the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics. And oh yeah, laban din nga pala ni Pacquiao. Haha. Yep, P.S. lang ‘yung Pacquiao-Bradley for him. In fact, I asked him last night:
Me: Babe, which will you watch if you have to choose: Miami vs kung-ano-man-ang-kalaban o Pacquiao vs kung-sino-man-yung-kalaban?
Randy: By far, ung Miami.
We had classes this morning (good for Randy because he had no class this morning–he was able to fully watch the Miami-Boston Game 7) and we were sweet talked by the students’ parents to bring a television to the canteen, and we did. Our class ended at 12 p.m., just in time for the Pacquiao-Bradley fight. As Randy and I were watching the Pacquiao-Bradley fight, I asked him whether he won. He said he did, and it was such an exciting game. He said he was alone, standing up all throughout the game, and even shouted, “I love you Bosh (sp?)!!!” to himself!
And then came THE decision that Pacquiao lost. I was very affected (I feel bad for Manny–I pray that he won’t think his being closer to God, his doing away with superstitious beliefs, etc. were the reasons why he lost), but Randy does not seem to be! I know why: coz Miami won, that’s why. Hrmpft!
Anyway, after the interviews and all, I immediately checked my Facebook and braced myself to what the Filipino populace had to say. And I had a good laugh for most of the time. Lemme share them with you:
This is one of the first ones I saw, and I really laughed. Actually, this is the only one I “Shared”:
And then there are these posts from Sir Rem De Leon, my former DevCom instructor whom I am coaxing to go full time on blogging to give The Professional Heckler a run for his money:

House Speaker Belmonte has just announced that congress is more than ready to file impeachment charges against the judges.

That’s gonna totally suck the oxygen out of the room for an entire news cycle. If anyone wants to announce some piece of bad news, or pass some controversial policy, do it now. You won’t get a better chance to get your resulting news item buried.
Yep, it’s DEFINITELY take out the garbage news day. Go to the press with ALL your dirty laundry press releases right NOW. You won’t get a better chance to be ignored for ages!
Hahahaha! Love, love them Sir REM!!! Here are more:
@JLin7: That was disappointing…Manny landed double the punches, but Bradley landed double the hugs #boxingisdead – O pati si Lin disappointed…awww…
What happens in #Vegas stays in Vegas. And remember folks, Vegas always wins.
And of course, natawa rin naman ako sa mga hindi ganyan ka-“intellectual” pero right on target pa rin:
SOMEONE TWEETED THIS : “pwes, tinext ko na si ate claudine mga mars ahahahaha — “ate clauds, nakita ko po si bradley binibidyo nya po kau i sware” HAYUUUPP!!! LOL
Carla Isabella Ross
HAHAHA! Kung ano ano nakikita ko sa twitter. Papasok daw ng Bahay ni Kuya si Bradley kasi puro yakap ang alam. XD Laughtrip,mga Pinoy tlga. PBB Teens?
Sabi daw nila, luto ang laban. Tingan niyo, sunog ang kalaban. hahahaha. (nabasa ko lang :))) )
And these two from Twitter:
Kasabihan @MgaKasabihan “The more you hug, the more chances of winning.”
ogie diaz @ogiediaz Analysis ng friend ko, “Dati naman kc, ndi naman umiinom ng Sting with Malunggay si Pacman eh!”
And I can’t help but be amused with the banter between these two youngsters, hahaha!
Marvin Borlaza: Pag natalo dinaya agad? o.O
——–Justine Ignacio marunong ka ba tumingin ng score?
—————-Marvin Borlaza marunong ka mnuod ng laban?
——————————-Justine Ignacio oo.
Chill lang, haha! Anyway, much as I want to declare that there really was cheating, I can’t because I’m no expert in boxing. The commentators were saying that “the scoring in boxing is not an exact science–the judges may have been right or wrong.” But one thing they are sure of is that “Bradley won the match fair and square”.
At dito na ako magre-react! Mali! Dapat “fairly and squarely”!!! Adverb, NOT adjective, because we are describing the verb “won”!
PS. I know that “fair and square” is an idiom so it’s untouchable/may protection from the grammar police. Hehe. Wala lang, makahirit lang.
PPS. Another Tweet I did not like/not find witty: “O Manny, are you going to say that ‘It’s God’s will’ again?” Because it is (unless the poster was trying to say that the result was indeed ‘cooked’).
