Lessons Learned

Manny Pacquiao after being asked what he learned from the experience of being in the middle of a controversy for his TV rights said "I am more intelligent now than I was yesterday".  Half joking but true in some ways, he really found out that he was not above the law and even our national treasure should adhere to basic ethical principals.

I was in the middle of the storm as my company, Solar Sports, who had the rights to Pacman's contract was surprised by his sudden announcement that he was rescinding the contract despite no valid reasons to do so.

After a few days worth of stress, lawyers, press conferences, and many phone calls, everything finally worked out and Manny honored his contract.

I, too am more intelligent after this experience.  As far as my lessons learned, I guess there were some...

Manny Pacquiao is one of the most unpredictable people in the world.  The Filipino people really are interested in his life and what he does.

There is no substitute for being right.  The passion and motivation to get the job done stems a lot from your belief in what you're doing.

You don't have to be educated or smart to be blinded by money and power, just human.  

You should always be prepared for all possibilities and cover all your bases.

Always be magnanimous and gracious in everything that you do.  

And my favorite.... "you can please some people all of the time, and all people some of the time, but you cannot please all people all of the time".

Kaboom, someone told me that Bill Velasco reportedly made some not so nice comments about Manny in a recent telecast of Bill's show Hardball. On my part, this only shows how Bill's blind loyalty to ABS is allowing him to make criticisms like that. Good thing I don't have ANC on Destiny Cable.

What's your reaction?

I can't comment on something I didn't hear. I also don't have Sky Cable. I know Bill and I don't think he's a guy who has blind loyalty.

Another key reason why people try to make use of generic versions of Viagra
is the decreased cost involved. This makes people less likely to be concerned if the medication is not quite as effective as the Viagra UK
created by Pfizer. The manner in which many people purchase generic Cheap Cialis
can also decrease the ability to reclaim the cost if the product is found to be ineffective.

Even with the Viagra , the dosage is very important. Viagra online comes in 25-mg, 50-mg, and 100-mg. Of course recreational users of Generic Cialis probably pay no attention to the recommended dose, even if the have the real pill.
