Monday, May 4th, 2009

What a strange, exhilarating, sad weekend:

Manny Pacquiao, TKO Ricky Hatton.

Manong Al Robles, now resting in peace.

Not to dis the Pac-man’s accomplishments, but as far as I’m concerned, Al Robles is/was real strength: non-violent power, activism and poetry personified, and a deeper kind of inspiration for the Filipino community.
