Pacquiao v Marquez


On November 13, Sunday morning, my beloved Philippines will be traffic free and probably crime free. Most of the roads will be deserted. The atmosphere will be more solemn compared to Good Friday. Television screens will be installed on tricycle and jeep terminals (and the drivers are somewhat irritated if you hire them). People will opt to attend the very early mass or the afternoon mass. Those with satellite discs and cable subscriptions will hold  mini family gatherings -- finger foods and beer overflowing. Other will go to cinemas and sports bar.


Because the boxing Filipino hero Manny Pacquiao will again bring glory (yeah, I bet he will win!) to the country.
