Manny Pacquiao wins

According to ABS-CBN News, Manny Pacquiao won over Jorge Solis with an 8th round K.O. barely 20 minutes ago.

In my neighborhood I can hear people cheering still. Right next door, where a renovation is going on, the carpenters intermittently yell things like, "Patay ka! Yari ka! Ahhh!"--probably when Pacquiao lands a good punch. Hehe.

I want to tell them he won already, but there's nothing like witnessing a victory when you're rooting for it that makes the Pinoy feel better, even for a while.

Ahh, boxing.

But I still hope Manny loses in the political ring.
