Bitten by the Golf Bug

Lately, my BIL has been boasting about his golf experiences and we’re all ears on him. Since I don’t know much about that sport, all I can do is to listen to him, laugh at some of his jokes talking about his misses and stuff and of course giving him praises so he’ll be more inspired to play. He works like a horse during workdays and he deserves to have a diversion on weekends with his friends and golf buddy.

There’s no doubt that he is bitten by golf and gps watch. He even bought that gps watch that he said can improve his scores and  performance. I hope so.. Anyway, I’m happy for him for he is up and jolly every time he goes out and comes home from his golf “events”” as what my sister said.

Getting into Sports

I’ve never been a sports-minded person. Although I competed in the 100 meter dash in track and field event in my highschool days, which I have won, that only reason I joined was we have no representative in that event hahaha. After that, no more sports for me. I don’t know, I guess my ectomorph body is just too fragile for sports.

I have a niece who loves sports and she played soccer and track and field and has become a representative of her highschool. She excels in sports and I just hope she’d continue it too.

I’m in admiration for those that love sports, not only they can become physically fit but they get to learn more about discipline and the spirit of camaraderie among fellow players. For those that compete on various competitions where they can bring sport trophies and honor not just to themselves but also for their organization, town and even for their country, I salute them! I can just imagine all the efforts and sacrifices that they put in their trainings.

No Sports for Him

I’m not sure if I’m going to be alarmed with the eating habits and behavior of my nephew. At 13, he is just fond of eating rice only with soup (no meat or veggies) or sauces for his meal though he can eat some portions of spring rolls at times. We often told him that what he is eating is only fitted for babies and he can’t get lots of nutrition from that.

Others advised my SIL to just leave him like that and for sure in no time, he’d learn how to eat rice with chicken or meat in it. No doubt, that’s why he is so frail and thin for his age. He’s not also into sports as he finds playing computer games much more exciting. Ahh.. how’d I wish I can see him play basketball, soccer and other sports. It would be nice if he’d be interested in them and if that happens, I’ll be more that glad to give him basketball or soccer gifts on his birthday.

Oh well, I know that every kid has his own likes and passion and I don’t have to impose to him what to like.

Pacquiao Now a Boxing Icon

The unbelievable career of Manny Pacquiao will carry on for a few more years, but not much longer according the man who might be one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the history of the sport.

Pacquiao might be the most famous person from the Philippines, since, maybe ever. But the boxer, singer and congressman will not be in the ring forever to the disappointment of his legions of fans around the world. After his thrashing of Antonio Margarito, Pacquiao announced that he plans to spend only three more years in the squared circle. While the news might be disappointing to boxing fans it certainly is not surprising. Pacquiao is the first boxer in the history of the sport to hold championship belts in eight different weight classes.

He was willing to take on Margarito, an opponent who was banned for fighting in many destinations after being accused of loading his gloves. However, after the Pacquiao fight it looked like Margarito was the one on the receiving end of a beating from brass knuckles or another foreign object.

Due to his combination of hand speed and relentless offensive attacks, Pacquiao has become the top of the sport and perhaps the one fighter that is a bigger draw than Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Mayweather had been considered the top draw of the sport until Pacquiao arrived on the scene. After the last performance and Mayweather’s legal problems it seems as if Pacquiao has passed up his former rival in the minds of fans and boxing observers.

While Pacquiao might be a popular figure attracting everything from top affiliate programs to endorsements for popular products it was not until recently that he was considered superior to Mayweather. While boxing fans dream of a super fight between the two, if that match-up does not occur it seems that history will look more favorably on the boxer who did not hide from competition.

It’s Tee Time

I guess you are all having a grand time with your summer vacation eventhough most of the times the heat and humidity is just unbearable. I have lots of friends and relatives who have packed their bags and went on a family vacation with their family out of town while some enjoyed the cool breeze outside the country.

There are actually lots of activities that we can do this summer; you just need to choose what you feel like most doing. Going to the beach swimming, snorkeling, diving and more are no doubt a hit for those that love water. There are also those that love attending seminars in cooking, baking and more.

Sports aficionados will find basketball, car racing and even golf irresistible. I remember my brother in law who loves to play golf after coming from work. I’m not sure if he is a fan of Tiger Woods though but he has love and passion for this disciplined sport. I know if he had his way, he’ll be wishing to play at one of the Myrtle Beach golf courses, where he can practice his playing skills.

There are many golf courses, as what I’ve read there are about 80 and that will excite him for sure. It’ll be a tee time for him and his son Braiden, another bonding time not just with his friends but with his son as well. If you’re a golf lover too, you can opt to choose at the various Myrtle Beach golf packages being offered and let the fun starts.
