Happy 3rd Anniversary

Whoa! I can't believe I've been doing this for the last three years! Okay may be sporadically at best. But being someone who easily loses interest on things, it's quite a feat that every now and then I am able to post something on this blog.

This is my first blog for the year of the rat. If I were to believe all those feng shui blabber, it's a very unlucky year for me since I was born in the year of the horse. But I don't really care, first of all I am not Chinese.

Oh speaking of the Chinese... In spite all the bad rap their poor country's been getting lately, I can't wait to see how they would act as host of this year's Olympics. The Chinese have gone a long way in the field of sports since they got out of their Iron Curtain a couple of decades ago. I remember when they hosted the Asian Games a few years back. They have a panda for a mascot and during the opening ceremonies there were guys dressed up as pandas prancing in the field. The problem is, they only have panda heads and hands...

Nevertheless, the Beijing Olympics will still be an interesting watch especially for Filipino athletes. After the complete meltdown in Thailand last December and the debacle of some boxers in the qualifying rounds, the Filipino athletes need all our support in their quest for Olympic glory.
