Family Bonding: Watching a Boxing Match
The truth is, I could live without watching any of Manny Pacquiao’s matches. I would rather enjoy the traffic free streets of the city (although today was the exception, or so I hear), but when your entire family stays home for the Live show via Pay-Per-View, you stay put.
Oh yes you stay put lest you miss out on this:
Three generations – Grandpa (my Daddy), Amir (aka Beloved Prince), and Vlad (aka brother bear, or Amir’s Daddy). This was before the match started and we were patiently watching the undercard. Or just hanging out. Or singing and dancing to whatever Amir was singing or dancing to.
And then when Pacquiao was finally being introduced to the crowd, Amir had quickly changed into his Manny P shirt, but refused to pose for pictures:
Oh he was playing with us. His dad placed him in front of the TV and he just kept laughing! He then posed with his hand raised showing Number 1, but he was right next to me and I couldn’t get his arm in with the photo.
Though Amir wasn’t watching so much as looking at the TV from time to time, he sure knew how to cheer on with the rest of us – he echoed most every “Oi!,” “Sige pa!” “Go, go, go, Manny!” At the end of the match – he celebrated too. “He’s a winner!”
It was so cute. Haha.
So what I’m trying to say is that, boxing fan or not, I’d still stay home to see the match if it meant bonding time with the family. And I still couldn’t get through a match without thinking of my grandfather who was the certified boxing fan.

My hair is thick and long, and in my opinion just outright boring.
For longer hair, bigger and more curls can be made compared to shorter hair.
If you are running on a budget, it is also easy to do your own wedding hair or get some help from a friend for your big day.

I think what you posted made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose you were to create a killer post title? I ain’t saying your content is not solid., however what if you added a title that makes people want more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.|
