Battle of the National Anthems, Intro Music, and Buffer

'Battle For Greatness', the fight of the century between Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao and Floyd 'Money' Mayweather will happen in a couple of days. unless, you have been living under a rock, then you already know the specifics of this match. The Best Ever is going up against the best pound for pound boxer in the whole world.

In my mind, this match should have happened five years ago when both fighters were in their prime. I'm still thankful that I'll be able to witness it though. I've already made my bets and I do hope that I win. LOL! Look for me to be cheering on for my countryman, Manny Pacquiao but I do sincerely hope the match ends in a draw. I'll be making more money if it does! LOL!

Anyway, others things that I'll be looking for in the fight - the celebrities in attendance (especially Mommy D! I love the Pacmom!), the local politicians attending the fight (so I know that i won't eb voting for them next elections - bandwagoners!) and these three things:

* the artists singing each fighter's national anthem

* the intro music (walk-in music as others call it) of each fighter

* what each fighter will be wearing going in the ring

I remember in the Pacquiao-Bradley fight, Ashanti sang the US national anthem. I love my own but Ashanti! Seriously?!! I'd pick Ashanti over Jessica Sanchez of American Idol fame all the time, every time, all day, every day, and twice on Sunday!!!

Crowd was chanting 'Manny! Manny! Manny!' after the national anthems. They played a video montage for Manny Pacquiao. Played a bit of AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck'. I thought it'll be Pacman's entrance music, instead he walked into the ring while Katy Perry's 'Roar' was playing. WTF?!!! forgot what was Bradley's intro music but I'm sure it was better than 'Roar'! He came in the ring in a really nice camouflage jacket. That was the color of the trunks that he be wore for the match. Suits him since he is the 'Desert Storm'.

Will you be watching the match? Wouldn't it be nice to have the job of these ring announcers? Would you like to have the job of Michael Buffer? Do you look good in camouflage?

I'd like to think that I do look good in camouflage. As for my intro music, it will start of with the death gongs of Undertaker and then move on to a very lively version of 'La Bamba'! Talk about misdirection!!! LOL! Yes, I'd love to have the job and pay of Michael Buffer. The guy makes more money in a couple of seconds than what i make in a month!

You definitely have voice and passion when you write. I don't keep up with sports, although I have heard of this.

In some ways, yes, it was about our national anthems. Just not the entire post. Sorry, if the post disappointed you &AbbyG .
