Don't Lose Your Rhythm

I have next to zero interest in sports, but the upcoming De La Hoya Vs. Pacquiao fight? Well, that my friends, is another story.

Come fight day, I'll probably find myself surrounded by Filipinos, being the only Mexican cheering on Oscar. It's gonna be intense. I've grown up with pay-per-view fights and relentless rooting for De La Hoya, but after seeing this HBO teaser, it's difficult to not want to cheer on Pacquiao too. I mean, for heaven's sake...Jinkee is pregnant and their kids are back home in the Philippines! Not to mention how much weight being the Philippino national treasure is on this guy's shoulders.

Watching them train and push their bodies to the limit is awe inspiring and it's difficult to describe the excitement that comes with being in a room full of people who are anticipating the results that that level of training brings.

Pac Man Vs. The Golden Boy.....December 6th.

Ah yes. It will be fun watching Mr. Panty Hose get schooled by the Philipino Philanthropist of Facial Flogging. One issue with your choice of words: "Pac Man Vs. The Golden Boy"? I hardly consider "versus" to mean "conversion into ground beef". I'm guessing that it's merely a sign that our "living language" is still kwijybo.
