Thankful for my Pacquiao ringside seats

 

It just suddenly hit me this morning!  I have been able to cover 9 of Manny Pacquiao’s fights sitting at ringside…live!  I have called maybe over 15 of his fights some of which I have done off-tube (meaning I was watching the TV feed and was speaking into a mic as the voice over) and some I have done for radio…but man I have been ringside 9 times.

Manny Pacquiao fights are always exciting specially upclose

Best praise ever

Best praise ever

“Good job, coach!”.  “Great win,sir!”.  “What a comeback coach.”  “I don’t know how you do it but keep on doing it.”  These are some of the best praises I have received over the years of coaching youth baseball.  Of course, when you win and everything is going well, one gets a lot of these.  When you lose a game or two, you receive the harshest of comments….but that is another story.

You live for the good stuff.  Of course my coaching colleagues and I work doubly hard to do well.  Admittedly, these are the kind of compliments you are aiming for…. until just recently.

Boys to Men

Over the years, I have realized that we all do not really grow up.  Our bodies might age and we certainly are expected to mature but somehow the person inside all that never changes.  There are just some desires of the heart that never leave.

Being male, I can only speak of us men.  There are traits that are innate in us that it never leaves.  We loved doing this as young boys and I am sure if we get a chance we would still feel the same joy even as adults.
