It looks like I won’t be watching Pacquiao slug it out with Marquez for the third time because of a family emergency. Come to think of it, I don’t think I was able to watch the first two encounters. I wasn’t much of a fan back then (I think I am still not much of a fan today — LIAR). Watching the third one won’t be much of a loss for me (riiiight). What can I do? I’m supposed to be doing something else productive other than watch two grown men try to beat each other to a pulp, while enjoying the company of other like-minded individuals (I should watch the fight, sheesh).
Anyway, what if you are really not a fan? What else can you do?
The reality of a Pacquiao Fight Day — people are not on the streets, even the crime rate goes down. I think that even if Shamcey Supsup decided to streak down the streets of Manila — with just a band-aid on — no one will notice. Well, maybe I can spot that one since I am not watching the fight (LOSER).
Here’s a short list of things to do:
- Go to church — it’ll probably a little less crowded than usual.
- Go the supermarket — the place won’t be jampacked. That is, if the supermarket is not inside the mall where the fight is showing via moviehouse.
- Cross the widest part of Commonwealth Avenue at ground level. As suggested by a friend, be a little more daring than your usual be safe self. Yes, since there are less vehicles on the road, it might not be as deadly than usual weekday.
- For the real non-fans of Pacquiao, watch reruns of ASAP on ABS-CBN (LOSER).
- Look out on the street and hope that Shamcey Supsup does come a streakin’. 😛
I left out going to the barber. Chances are, they’ll be listening to the fight on the radio. Accidents can happen, you know. Clippers and razors are dangerous stuff.
