How are you all doing? Hope you all had a good weekend. This weekend was kinda like the same as last weekend, not too busy but was more exciting and had more fun. Although I wasn’t able to watch it, I was glad to find out from the news that the Los Angeles Lakers won over the Phoenix Suns. The suprise of the weekend was the NY Knicks win over the Dallas Mavericks by 30 points, avenging their previous 50-point loss and also ending the Mav’s 13-game winning streak.
Of course who doesn’t know about last Saturday’s boxing match between Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines and Ghanain boxer Joshua Clottey? Filipinos and boxing fans around the world have been waiting for it since it was announced. Pacquiao won as most people expected but didn’t expect it to be that lopsided and boring. People were expecting Clottey to give it his best and to be aggressive, to give Pacquiao a run for his money. Instead, Clottey turned into a punching bag, absorbing Pacquiao’s punches all throughout the fight and barely threw punches of his own. Pacquiao threw around 1,200+ punches, while Clottey only had about 300+. In previous Pacquiao fights, I would watch the replay several times and look at the details round by round but this fight was so boring, I didn’t even bother to watch a replay. Pacquiao like always, came out and did his part, stuck with his fight plan/strategy and fought like a champ. Congratulations Manny and more power to you!
Now, we’ll have to wait and see who’ll win in the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Shane Mosley fight, because whoever wins that fight will most likely fight Pacquiao next.
Anyways, on to the good stuff. Hope you guys enjoy this week’s edition of the Weekend Roundup!

weekend was spend with the family, as usual :) and yes, that pacquiao clottey fight was like an uncooked food to me.
nice round up here! those personas for firefox are simply awesome. actually, ive seen them for about weeks ago (?) but did not get to write about them.
Nice reading and very useful, especially on blogging articles bro. Thanks for sharing.
It was really a surprise when NY Knicks beat Dallas Mavs. Just like Clottey decided not to engage. BTW I checked that carbon electric bike, the design was so nice. I thought it was a Mountain Bike.
A nice round up, that carbon fiber bike was really awesome. How I miss going around town on bike, nowadays it’s a bit annoying because of the so many scooters and motor bikes that crowd the streets.
