It took a local dj for me to find out. It was almost 5 when we heard these two dj’s talking about this boxer who has brought so much pride to Filipinos around the world. Shortly after the other dj’s announcement, ridicule followed. Can you blame them? What, are Filipinos going to demand some sort of apology again for the insults? Come on!
If I had a dollar for every time Manny Pacquiao’s Congressional seat win came up in a conversation, I would have left the office filthy rich. I was, well, embarrassed. Those of you Filipinos who would hate me for saying this would be kidding yourselves. Seriously.

I don’t owe anyone to give him a chance. He has to prove his worth. I do have high respects for him as a great athlete. He has to earn my respect, though, for being a remarkable statesman.
