Fuck da muthahfuckin’ truth! We’re Filipino!

And now today’s laughtastic tidbit of news on shit we already know, but Flips continue to prove.

So I’m looking through my news, and what do I see?  A Philippines “basketball association” crying “poor me!”  As we know, Flips L O V E to dish out the criticism, but they can’t take a lick of it themselves.  Now they’re the laughing stock of the sports world for it.

Apparently, form NBA (that’s right..a REAL basketball association) player Daniel Orton (you know..former Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma Thunder player) has been fired from the…wait…have to look up the silly team name here…the “Purefoods Hotshots”…and the PBA…for doing the most dastardly of things….saying something really reaaaaaallly bad about their beloved hero Manny Pacquio.  Now…what could he have POSSIBLY have said to illicit such reaction?  Did he call Manny a child molester?  Did he accuse Manny of using steroids?  This is what Mr. Orton actually said:

“Professional boxer, yeah, okay… professional basketball player, no. It’s a joke,”

Yep.  That’s it.  That’s all he said.  And based on 5ft 6in Manny’s performance on the court where he only scored a single point, it fits perfectly.  In the NBA, such a record would have dozens of players making jokes about it, and not a single one of them fined.

But I get it.  Some people might say he was having a bad night.  He might actually be good.  Well, I’ll just show you think video here where you can see what the likes of Charles Barkley thought of Manny’s basketball skills:



Done laughing yet?  You sure?  Ok….now, let’s remember.  This is the same Manny that got every medal the Philippines Congress had to give, including some for women.  The same Manny that got an honorary doctorate’s degree in sports medicine (even though he dropped out of school in the 4th grade), the same Manny that had literally the worst attendance record of any politician except for GMA (who’s locked up in jail yet STILL holds office), and the very same Manny that got a high ranking military title without even going to boot camp.

So, as you can see, it’s a big “no-no” to think of Manny as anything other than a God, because the Flips really, really need one.  You see, Manny doesn’t say bad things about the Flips like the Pope did.  Manny has been the perfect poster boy for every aspect of the Flip  Taking everything for free without earning it while acting stupid to anyone that calls him on it.

I’m really thinking they need to change the motto here:

“Fuck da muthafuckin’ truth!  If you don’t love us blindly, get da fuck out!”

    Well, of course, they need to elevate someone like Pac-Man to the level of “godhood”, because those gooks have rejected the true God of Heaven, or, more accurately, they have rejected the words of God, such as “Thou shalt not kill”, “Thou shalt not steal”, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”, “Thou shalt not bear false witness (lie)”, etc., etc., etc….

    If I remember well, but I’m not sure if it was about pac-man, I read somewhere that his opponents in the ring are carefully chosen. To be sure it wouldn’t be a humiliating defeat after defeat. But not sure if it was about him. Is that guy really a good boxer or his opponents are simply all wimps ?

    What I wonder about more is back in his heyday when he was winning and winning and winning. Mayweather thought it was a bit strange that an average boxer who won some, lost some, would suddenly be on a non-stop winning streak. So when Manny started demanding a fight with Floyd, Floyd wisely put in the condition that Manny do a drug test. Of course Manny agreed, as long as it was a piss test and done in the Philippines. Floyd said “hell no…olympic grade blood test done here in the states”. Manny turned it down.

    Fast forward a couple of years, and Manny has lost some fights…even got knocked out. He stopped demanding the fights..laid low a bit. Then he “comes back” and wins a few fights…except that his opponents are way below a challenge for him, even by their own admission. But the Flips go nuts, saying “Manny is back with a vengeance! Let’s see Floyd take him now! Floyd is scared of him!”

    Now Floyd has nothing to be ashamed of. He’s undefeated. As Floyd explained it, he had to jump through hoops when he went for the title against Oscar. Oscar demanded the lion’s share of the take, drug testing…you name it. And, as Floyd said, Oscar had a right to demand that. He was “A Side”, Floyd was “B Side”. But Floyd agreed to everything Oscar wanted and the fight happened. No ego…no trying to set his own conditions. Oscar was top dog, and Floyd knew it. Unlike Manny, who acts like he’s God’s gift to boxing and can set the rules and conditions.

    Sure, Manny. In the Philippines you can have anything you want. Owe taxes? They’ll give you a huge break and let you take as long as you want to pay it. But the Philippines is far, far, far from a relevant nation. It’s a nation of clueless, uneducated twits who need a hero because they’ve never had one. Even their beloved Rizal was a loser who ended up broke and drunk in the very country he wrote against (Spain).

    Manny is the closest thing they have to success, and so they all live through him while they suck on their bowls of rice and complain about how poor they are. Then they tweet it on their new iPhone before going back to the squatter community they live at.

    Will the filipinos fire or blacklist Reggie and Charles? After all they were poking fun at Manny and he was too stupid to know it.

    No one here posted what I find even crazier. Manny actually owns a Philippine basketball team. I think he’s had it for over a couple years now. He was a part-time coach as well. He felt his players were not doing well on the team for a while, so he decided he was going to take the court and actually play. He did really badly for about 5 games and blamed it on the fact he had an upcoming fight where his mind could not focus on the game. I know, so why would you play in the first place?
    To make matters even worse, there was an American exNBA player on an opposing team who criticized Manny playing. He didn’t say anything mean or bad, but just said something to the effect that Manny is a boxer, not a basketball player, never played pro before, and wasn’t really a good idea for him to play. In other words, he spoke the truth (and not in a mean way). Well, the pinoys didn’t like that very much so they kicked him out of the league and sent him home.
