Duck, Duck Bush!

A lot of people are talking about the recent incident were a journalist threw his shoes at President Bush.
Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Iraqi-owned Al-Baghdadiya television based in Egypt, shouted "this is the end" as he hurled them at the American leader.

Although I pity the guy for having poor aim I somehow understand why Mister al-Zeidi chose this course of action.
Bush is the person who many believe is responsible for the demise of his country Iraq, the death of many of his countrymen, the destruction of businesses, the shifting of their entire lives for the worse. Throwing a shoe or shoes at him is a very small, insignificant thing compared to what Bush has done so far.

Many say that that particular action was an insult to all U.S. Americans.
But I beg to differ. It was an insult to only ONE and that one person was the supposed target of those size 10 shoes.

My mother always told me, respect is EARNED and it can never be demanded.
This situation just proves it.

Also, one could wonder if this happens quite often whenever Bush would visit another foreign country. Just look at how fast he managed to get out of the way and avoid those shoes. Reflexes like that need to be honed by constant practice.

He should just be glad there wasn't any bomb in those footwear.

Pacquiao vs. Dela Hoya

Many have said that when Pacman decided to take on Dela Hoya the golden boy of boxing that would be the end of his winning streak. But again, Pacman has proved them all wrong by beating Dela Hoya's beautiful face into a pulp.

The fight was amazing! Pacquiao dominated all the rounds. By round five Dela Hoya's face was already bloodied and many could not believe he could go on anymore.
By round seven it was apparent that Manny will be winning and by round eight, Dela Hoya finally gave up the fight.

Pacquiao won via TKO!

I'm writing this blog while still watching the interviews.
I'll post videos of it when I can obtain them.

Again, congratulations Manny! Saludo kami sa'yo!

And rumor has it, Floyd Mayweather may come out of his retirement to try and take on the Pacman. Now, that's another fight that's worth looking forward to.
