More Pacman Fever

Wednesday, January 25, 2006 at 8:00 PM

No, this isn't about everyone's favorite
game, but rather more stuff on Manny Pacquiao's victory over Erik Morales last weekend.

A good round-by-round commentary of the classical battle can be found here.

Boxing circles on the Net have been furiously discussing Pacman's dismantling of El Terrible. Pacquiao fans are exuberant, boxing analysts are changing sides, and many more are singing dirges for Morales and his stellar career. Another round of great quotes from the Web:

"There is nothing like Manny Pacquiao in all of professional sports...Here in America, you could combine Lance Armstrong, Peyton Manning, LeBron James, Tom Cruise, Bruce Springsteen and 50 Cent into one person and you still wouldn't have what the Philippines have in their number one all-time super-star Manny Pacquiao." -- Tom Thompson

"Manny Pacquiao has now done what no other man has achieved before him, and defeated both Barrera and Morales, and done so by dropping and stopping both of them." -- Kieran Mulvaney

"Pacquiao, if he was a basketball player, is the baller who has now added a mid-range jumper to go with his collection of highlight reel dunks." -- Steve Kim

"I think both Pacquiao and Morales are hall-of-fame locks. Nobody in their right minds would deny Pacquiao a first-ballot vote." -- Doug Fischer

My father said the Mexicans were grieving (the ship where he works passes by Mexico).

Fleeb, we Pinoys were just lucky to have so great a fighter in Pacman. :) But that's not to belittle Morales' own greatness.

And Morales hugging Pacman was his own heroic act of sportsmanship. In the end, both are heroes in their own ways.

About the plan on buying another domain, you see my webhost (and the company I worked for -- for my OJT) provides very affordable rates.

that's true, fleeb.

on the webhost, i'll keep in mind for the future your suggestion, though i'm still contented with filcode (where corsarius.net is hosted). thanks!
