A Very Good Post in POOR Magazine Re: Pacquiao

Here it is, dear blog readers, your reading for the day:  a post on POOR Magazine on Pacquiao vs. Mosley.

Self doesn’t know who the author is (since he is identified only as “RWS” which might refer to “Revolutionary Work Scholar” since that was the only conceivable possibility self could come up with, after browsing through the side bar and looking at the “About” section.  Oh well, no help there!).

Anyhoo, it’s a pretty funny essay.  Self likes the way it incorporates text messages and gives us background information on the narrator, as well as thoughts on Mosley (39!  Doesn’t that make him a tad old to be a boxer?) and the writer’s response to the fight itself.  She wished it had gone on a little longer.

When self was traveling all over Negros Island, in December 2010, she saw posters of Pacquiao everywhere, in nipa huts by the side of the road, in stores, in town plazas (In contrast, when self tried asking people if they knew who Tim Lincecum was, they would respond with either a shrug or a puzzled stare.  Which led her to conclude:  No one in the Philippines knows about Tim Lincecum!)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
