Unconscious Mutterings 17

First off, I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS to Manny Pacquiao for defeating Marco Antonio Barrera, who announced his retirement within hours of his loss, at the Will To Win Super Featherweight match held at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Vegas today (Saturday night for all you HBO PPV viewers out there). You make the Filipinos proud of you more than ever.

If the match taught us anything, it's that anger is a very ugly thing. It can take the best of you, or you can control it and unleash it at just the right time. Pacquiao definitely was the gentleman in the ring, which only made Barrera look really REALLY bad. It was a fair match and people knew Pacquiao was going to take his title back home. A solid 12 rounds, a nasty gaping wound on Barrera's cheek, the foul blow Manny took, the unsurprising point deduction Barrera got for it, and all the great action in between -- definitely one of my favorite Pacquiao victories yet.

What did you drink?

BB -- I only had 2 glasses of red wine and a glass of something else (I forget). I'm getting old. Haha!

Chris -- OK, maybe I did at some point, but I'm sure I WAS drunk then.
