Even just for a day, the Filipino nation was once again united last Sunday– this time, in cheering for boxer Manny Pacquiao. Government leaders, common people, and rebels were one in hoping that “Pacman” would deliver a victory for the country in that fight against Mexican Erik “El Terrible” Morales.
But it was a terrible day for us. Pacquaio lost the bout.
Though I was saddened by the news of Pacquiao’s defeat, I jokingly told my friends: “That’s his karma for endorsing Gloria!”
