January 22, 2006. The latest craze being the fight between Manny "the Pac Man" Pacquiao and Erik Morales. Everybody (as in everybody!) in the country watched the match between these two boxers. People say a planned coup-de-etat was postponed because of this fight! LOL Public transport has come to a still as most jeepney, taxi and tricycle drivers stopped to watch it. The match was also shown in all SM Cinema outlets around the country and it was a block-buster hit! Some lunatics....hmmm I mean fanatics even bet their source of income for this game.

Hopeless? Maybe. But it was Fun just the same ;0)
