Eh-hum # 106

Huwaw!! July already?! Seems like I'm the only one moving at a moderate pace; the time and most people are too fast...too furious, hehehe. Oh well.

Congratulations to THE Pacman for winning yesterday's slug fest against Mexicano Oscar Larrios. The third round onslaught courtesy of Larios got us a little worried; but Pacquiao soon recovered and clobbered his nemesis to a pulp, especially on the seventh and twelfth rounds. A KO would have been sweeter, but seeing Larios' cut under the left eye and the blood gushing out made me pity the fellow. Tsk, tsk. Boxing pays big money, but at what price? Oh yeah, I also would like to congratulate the pre-fight, uh, fights in which all Pinoy boxers defeated their Mexican counterparts. Mabuhay Kayong Lahat!

While I am upset with the Miami Heat's win over the Dallas Mavericks last month, I can't imagine what is like to be a hardcore Brazilian fan at this point. In case you've been sleeping under a rock, World Cup defending champs Brazil was booted out of the competition thanks to France. Eerily enough, this was not the first time Brazil was defeated by France, its actually the third time. Perhaps in the next World Cup, Brazil should make sure that France is eliminated early on. With the South American contender out of the way, its a rare all European face-off: France, Portugal, Italy and host Germany. However, World Cup fans expect a French-German match up in the end. As for us belonging in this part of the world where soccer/football is perhaps second/third/fourth only to basketball, we can only wait and see.

Excuse my French, but I am starting to get really annoyed with Zhang Ziyi. She's beautiful and talented, no doubt about it. But she's just everywhere...and guess what? There are other equally (or more) beautiful and talented Asian actresses out there...Hollywood is just too damned lazy to notice. Perhaps this "annoyance" came from the news that Zhang will co-star in a remake of the epic Seven Samurai by the great Akira Kurosawa. Okay, fine, we let Memoirs of a Geisha pass (after all, it was written by a Westerner), now Hollywood wants to place its grimy hands on a Kurosawa classic? Couldn't they get at least an all-Japanese cast this time? Or were they afraid that the movie will not "sell" without a famous cast? Right! Who cares about authencity if the movie will not sell. That's Hollywood for you, tsk, tsk.

Eh-hum. However, I am still being kind to Zhang, you should see/read what the Hong Kong media say about her. Tsk, tsk.

Since Hollywood is doing it, I'm sure it won't be a good effort na naman.

I was really so surprised Brazil lost. I don't follow the World Cup but even I know Brazil=football. Shucks.
