In 2008, the world shall once again be one global community as we altogether watch the 2008 Beijing Olympics. A sporting event inspired by the ancient Greeks where people participate in various sporting events. An affair that one must watch at least once in his lifetime.
And the 2008 olympics poses a challenge to the people of the world. China, the host nation of this event, shall use expats living in China as the torch runners in the olympics (click http://pub1.chinadaily.com.cn/olympics/torch/members.shtml?mid=117 for more details).
Why not? The last time we had a Pinoy actually bore a torch was during th Tokyo Olympics, and that was a long time ago. Now is a great chance for us to repeat history; a Filipino bearing the torch in an olympics held in an Asian country.
Also, I think that the Filipino deserves a sensible and fresh source of pride. Not that I have anything against Manny Pacquiao, but he is on his waning phase and has, in a way, involved himself in dirty thing because of politics. And Marcos Torres can be that fitting replacement.
C’mon… Mr. Torres is the breather and pride we truly deserve. Vote Na!!!
