What An Epic Finale for the 2014 Men’s Wimbledon Championship

At first, I thought it was a game of “Aces” as both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic were darn good at making points in first serves. Although, it takes a lot of practice to develop a world-class expertise in tennis, particulalry the sending down of “Aces” , I was no longer enthralled on how the game was being played, it started to be a bit dull. For me, it is more exciting  to watch tennis games where 2 players rally back and forth until a point is scored. I thought whoever gets to return the ball and gets the point … Continue reading What An Epic Finale for the 2014 Men’s Wimbledon Championship

High Global Fashion In 2012 London Olympics

The parade of nations at the opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics on July 27, 2012 revealed a surrealistic painting of the disparity between the delegation of developed and industrial nations and those of the developing and least developed economies. If you happen to be one of the billions of spectators of the said parade (either via live or digital means), you will agree with me that apart from the gap in the number and magnitude of representations between the two groups of nations, what was more ostensible and visible was the athletes sports uniforms. The developed nations appeared … Continue reading High Global Fashion In 2012 London Olympics

Some people don't mind multi-tasking especially in this high-tech age. It is much easier and possible to actually do anything at the same time. It just occurred to me now while drafting a report, my eyes were diverted to the live final tennis match of Spain's Rafael Nadal and Serbia's Novak Djokovic for the coveted men's title of the U.S. Open being shown at the right side of the 25-inch computer monitor and listening to a favorite ipod tune, all at the same time. I am not an avid fan of lawn tennis but I have a heart for it … Continue reading Being Fashionable vs. Being Comfortable: 2011 U.S. Open

FIRST TIME TO MEET METS WITH ROCKIES – FUN SPORTS TIPS AND THOUGHTS

  Last Monday night after completing a certain project, I got the chance to watch a live baseball game at NYC's Citifield Mets Stadium courtesy of some non profit org connections. So, what's the big deal? Nothing really, except that it was a pain in the butt as the New York Mets team lost to the Colorado Rockies after almost 4 hours of being exposed to the chilly weather, sitting, cheering and chanting, “LET'S GO METS, LET'S GO METS……, of course with the boom beat”! Seriously, the game was fun and exciting, the support and exuberance of the crowd was … Continue reading FIRST TIME TO MEET METS WITH ROCKIES – FUN SPORTS TIPS AND THOUGHTS

Saranggani Congressman Stops By the Oval Office- “An Unforgettable Moment”

  Eight time world boxing champion and now Congressman Manny Pacquiao (Pacman) got the privilege to step on the grounds of the White House (WH) and reportedly had a tete-a-tete conversation with President Barrack Obama with the help of his friend Nevada Senator Harry Reid. (photo from the web) I was surfing the net to check on details of Pacquiao’s WH visit but based on reports, it appears nothing has been said much about it except for the very brief identical press releases published by certain known sports dailies. One of the highlights of the reports is Pacman’s comments such as,  … Continue reading Saranggani Congressman Stops By the Oval Office- “An Unforgettable Moment”
