Manny Pacquiao

Few readers of this blog will recognize this name. Manny is a world champion boxer who won again today in Las Vegas. For the duration of the fight, the Philippines and the Filipinos abroad were united. The crime rate in Manila dwindled to zero, traffic disappeared, church services were poorly attended because most everyone tried to watch the fight live.

We all shared the joy of seeing a countryman do good abroad. We were all happy that he was going to be able to build a mansion in his impoverished province.

Even before the victory, Manny was already being touted to become the vice mayor of Manila. After he won the fight, there was no doubt that he could have easily won the presidential elections if they were held the following day.
