Fair Play: Pacquiao and Wesley So

MANNY Pacquiao scored a quick knockdown against the Foul Mayweathers recently.

Pacquiao, who has been the favorite target of boxing’s favorite loudmouths, wrote in his column that you don’t have to trash talk to sell a fight.

Everybody knows trash talking is the middlename of the Mayweathers.

And it seems, it’s also the only way they know to sell a fight.

WHAT was once an extra-curricular activity for a seven-year-old became the reason that got him to represent the Philippine football team to China.

Fair Play: The Second Coming of the Pac-chuuung.

WHAT would you do if the guy who sits beside you in the jeepney—for no apparent reason—suddenly frowns, rolls his eyes, murmurs a few phrases in English, smiles, then snaps his fingers.

Would you: 1) call the Psych ward; 2) get off ASAP; 3) clear some space; 4) leave him alone?


I NO LONGER remember who that guy was, but his was the first mixed-martial arts fight I ever saw.

He also instantly joined my list of fighters “who get embarrassed by talking too much.”

Sykes, Aegis top football festival

SYKES and Aegis Peo-ple Support ruled the inaugural Home Sweet Home 9-a-side Inter Corporate Football Festival at the San Roque Parish football field last Oct. 25.

Sykes outlasted Tsunie-shi via shootout to top the nine-team men’s division, while Aegis People Support got past Convergys in the women’s final.

Fair Play: Confessions of the imaginary kind

ANDRE Agassi shocked the tennis world with his recent book “Open,” (what else would a tennis player name his book?) when he said that he used crystal meth when he was still an active player.

He even admitted that he lied to the ATP tour, that he accidentally drank a soda laced with crystal meth, to get away with a positive drug test.

Fair Play: El Presidente speaks

UV: 9, rest of Cesafi: 0.

That’s the score so far in the basketball competition of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc., after the University of the Visayas won their triple grand slam.
