Coca-Cola still deserves an applause (The OFW Project)

Posted on

Watch this tearjerker of a video which has become another viral sensation (100% guaranteed to make your hearts bleed with gut-wrenching joy):

If we did not allow the US WASPs to take hold of our patrimony (let alone our economy), we would never have experienced such a diaspora that has left millions of Filipino families in emotional anguish. Yes, our beloved OFWs, the so-called mga bagong bayani, did so much in saving our economy for the last few decades. But how many lives did this kind of setup “destroy”? Many parents have become strangers to their own children.

At any rate, Coca-Cola still deserves a huge round of applause for bringing back, even if for just the holiday season, these three OFWs (Joe Marie Ballón, Leonie Villanueva, and Joey Doble) who have been away from our country for so many years. It can be said that Coca-Cola is merely playing with our emotions in order for us to buy their products even more. However, it is good to see that they are putting their profits into good use. That is the correct way to use money/profits: to spread happiness.

In the meantime, what is our current president doing to spread joy to those who, for many years, have been tirelessly injecting fuel into the nation’s dried-up coffers even before he learned how to puff a nasty nicotine stick? Instead of prioritizing our beloved OFWs, his priorities are dead set on achieving “justice“, a classic case of misguided priorities. And I haven’t even mentioned his zeal for the speedy passing of the RH Bill into law.

¡Maraming salamat, Coca-Cola! Where will happiness strike next?

Maybe you guys better visit Malacañang and give those baróng-clad peeps over there some mean “Coke bath” a la Stone Cold Steve Austin. Now that would be a happy scene for all of us!

The Pacquiáo-Mayweather boxing tiff might end up becoming a hilarious tag team match!

Pacman vs Mayweather

Manny Pacquiáo and Floyd Mayweather have finally agreed to slug it out next year, tentatively on 13 March 2010 (March 14, Philippine time).

But what’s this I hear? Pacquiáo’s trainer Freddie Roach is already making physical threats to Mayweather’s coach (and uncle) Roger Mayweather!

Roach ready to go to a street brawl with Floyd’s trash talking trainer

SUPERSTAR trainer Freddie Roach has made it known that he’s ready to engage Roger Mayweather, trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr, in a fight should Roger start trash-talking against Manny Pacquiáo and get out of the line.

Roach, in an interview with The Telegraph, was reacting to Roger Mayweather’s statement that his nephew will deliver a boxing lesson on Pacquiao.

“Floyd Sr is no harm. He has his poems and he talks a bit of trash, but he’s not mean. Roger and I don’t get along. He’s a piece of ****. He talks trash about my trainer Eddie Futch. He puts people down who can’t actually defend themselves because they have passed away.”

The Freddie Roach-Roger Mayweather drama is expected to be one of the major factors when the hype machine for the March 13 bout involving their two superstar fighters go into full blast.

“He says ‘Eddie Futch wasn’t ****’, stuff like that. He says he would have knocked me out. If he gets out of line, I will fight him. In the street. He’s disrespectful and I’m getting to the point where I can’t take it no more. If he talks like that one more time and I’m in front of him, he’s going to have a fight on his hands. It will be exciting because I’m not going to take this **** from him. He doesn’t have that good a chin – we know that. He can punch though. We’ll see,” Roach added. Inquirer Sports

If this boxing drama ever reaches wrestling tycoon Vince McMahon’s ears, he’s surely going to use it to his advantage. Well, his World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) needs it really bad! WWE’s wrestling programs’ ratings are sliding down horribly ever since the demise of the controversial Attitude Era (and the retirement of his two wrestling superstars from that era, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock). And that’s why these past few months, McMahon has been inviting celebrity guest hosts for Raw, WWE’s flagship program, to stop the bleeding ratings.

Recently, both Mayweather, Jr. and Ricky Hatton (another Pacquiáo victim) became guest hosts for WWE Raw (on separate episodes). Why not invite our Filipino hero, too, for a change? Wasn’t he a darling when he guested in Jimmy Kimmel Live! early this year?

Between Pacquiáo and Mayweather, the latter has extensive “wrestling” experience. In WWE No Way Out (17 February 2008), “Pretty Boy” saved Rey Mysterio from a beating done by a returning Big Show. The ensuing save left Big Show with a broken nose courtesy of Mayweather’s lightning-speed punches. That incident culminated in a No Disqualification match between Pretty Boy Floyd and The World’s Largest Athlete in Wrestlemania XXIV (30 March 2008). The match was awful and hilarious. The crowd hated Pretty Boy for his underhanded tactics (and bravado) in defeating the more than seven-feet brawler (but what non-wrestler wouldn’t do that against The Big Show anyway)? He became an instant heel (villain in wrestling parlance) while the wrestling fans supported Big Show (who was supposed to be the bad guy). Mayweather won after a knockout (with the help of brass knuckles), but he was carried out of the ring by his entourage amidst deafening boos and catcalls.

A few months ago (24 August 2009), Mayweather and The Big Show met again, this time on a WWE Raw episode which Mayweather hosted. And this time, the fans were on his side since The Big Show, together with the coholder of his Unified WWE Tag Team Championship title, Chris Jericho, were on a villainous rampage. However, The Big Show wasn’t able to exact his revenge on Mayweather. Pretty Boy once again cheated on a match which pitted the tag team champions against Montel Vontavious Porter and Mark Henry (by tossing brass knuckles to MVP for the latter’s use). Ironically, the crowd loved him for that. He even had a segment with WWE’s top honcho himself, Vince McMahon, during that episode.

And just last month, 9 November 2009, British boxing sensation Ricky Hatton (who lasted only two vicious rounds against Pacman in The Battle of the East and West boxing pay-per-view last 2 May 2009), served as the next boxing celebrity host for WWE Raw. The episode was held in his country, the United Kingdom. Hatton even had a very entertaining “Boxer vs Wrestler” match against Chavo Guerrero which he won by using a devastating right hook — something which he failed to utilize against our very own Pacman.

So let Roach and Uncle Mayweather settle the score, not outside the streets (that’s too uncivilized and uneducated), but in a wrestling match. Or even a tag team wrestling match (Roach and Pacman vs the Mayweathers). The wrestling ring has already been tainted with boxers and various celebrities in the past. The Pacman vs Pretty Boy is expected to become the greatest boxing match of all time. Thus, the marketers must as well use WWE for promotions. Both parties, for sure, would benefit from it.

Now that’s going to be one incredible hype machine.

Am I serious about this suggestion? Being a wrestling and boxing fan, I’d like to think that I am. By the way, I’m suffering from a very high fever (with cough and flu and a severe headache) since yesterday.

World Wrestling Entertainment could become an avenue for promoting Pacman's match vs the loudmouth Mayweather.
