Rooting for Manny Pacquiao

Anticipation is almost over. The Dream Match between Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao and "The Golden Boy" Oscar Dela Hoya is set on December 6, 2008 (December 7 if you are in the Philippines) at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will surely be a holiday weekend for us here in the Philippines since majority (if not all) of us will be glued on tv to watch out for this fight. I am not a Kapuso but since The Dream Match will be aired on television this Sunday via the GMA Network, I have no other choice but to switch my channel just to see this fight. Don't worry ABS-CBN, I'm still a Kapamilya, though hehehe. More than being a Kapamilya, I'm also a Filipino. And I will be proud to see how Pacman jabs his way to winning this fight over the Golden Boy.

I am not the sporty type person, but everytime Manny has a fight, I transform into one. One of Manny's fights had a very special place in my heart. It was during his Mano-A-Mano fight with "Chololo" Larios that Stephen (now my husband) and I had been texting each other. He was also rooting for Manny but then he pretended to be on Larios' side just so we could make a bet that if Manny wins, I get to win a Toblerone chocolate. Now, wasn't that a perfectly good excuse for him to give me something without being shy about it? Wasn't boxing the sweetest thing? Now that we're married, I asked him if we're going to have another bet going for this Dream Match, he already dismissed the idea because he said if any of us wins, we get to share the chocolate, anyway. So we just bought ourselves something to eat and drink instead.

Happy watching, everyone! Win or lose, Manny's gonna get some money. Oh well, and so will Oscar.

I can't stand Oscar, so I'm rooting for the Pacman too. I'm a fan of Manny, so I'm hoping it's a TKO tonight!

Hopefully, they're showing it on the military channels here. :(
