Pacquiao vs. Barrera

Another thing that Filipinos should be proud of!

Yesterday's event made another record, 0% crime rate all over metro Manila as everyone are watching the boxing match of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao against the Mexican boxer Antonio Barrera that lasted up to 12th round. It was truely a much awaited event here in our country as our "pambansang kamao" used to bring honors and glory for our country.

But one thing that dis-appoint us was how one of the biggest television network did with the coverage of this event. Just to earn money for their coverage they bombarded the telecast with 18 commercials in between boxing rounds including the national anthem of each boxers and boxing arena (in fairness Kyla was able to execute the original rendition of our national anthem). Imagine before 2pm they started showing the fight between Pacquiao ang Barrera and it took them more than 2 hours to show the end of the fight we already fell asleep while infront of the tv. Now we learn our lesson, if that particular network will be the one to televise the next Pacquiao fight we will just watch it in the big screen with live telecast than losing our excitement on the boxing match.

I hope they learn their lesson on what they did as most of headlines now reflects the dis-appointment on their prolonged telecast.
