Boxing’s our best Olympic medal hope, and boy does it look dim now

By

What was that again? All you need to hit the jackpot is one ticket? Well that may work in lottery, even against million-to-one odds. But in sports? Even with a generous financial backer helping tilt supposedly better odds toward you? I’m not quite sure. I’m not discounting come-from-behind dramas or fairy-tale endings but from where [...]

A Photo Blog: The Beckham Experience

By
David Beckham psyches up as he makes last minute gear adjustments seconds before the kickoff.

It’s only been just a year when Philippine football took a one-eighty from being one of the most unnoticed and unappreciated sports in the country to being the most watched and most followed.

This whirlwind rise of the sport took a step further when North American major league football team LA Galaxy visited Manila recently as part of its Asia-Pacific promotional tour. The team, which was led by no other than English football superstar David Beckham and the US national football team’s former captain Landon Donovan, went against our very own Philippine Azkals in a friendly match dubbed as the Dream Cup.

The Azkals may have trailed behind with a final score of 6-1 in favor of the LA Galaxy but nonetheless, with major league football players taking on our own footballers on Philippine soil, it was undeniably a good day for Philippine football once again.

Nonito Donaire Jr. Photo by Chris Farina, Top Rank

Nonito Donaire is back in town following his uneventful conquest of the reluctant Argentine challenger Omar Narvaez in New York last week. Network giant ABS-CBN wasted no time in parading the pound-for-pound prince on national TV. He appeared in “Showtime” (where so-so judges judge talent) and the unimaginatively titled noontime show “Happy, Yippee, Yehey.” The [...]

By
donaire25

NEW YORK CITY – Lost amid the hype and hoopla of Nonito Donaire Jr.’s bout against Omar Narvaez, and the subsequent disappointment that followed the Filipino Flash’s victory was one question begging an answer: Has Nonito Donaire made a Faustian bargain?

By
jamesfanstweet

If it wasn’t for the NBA lockout, this tweet from Miami Heat star LeBron James to me—yes, to me-—which caused quite a stir in Twitterverse’s basketball corner wouldn’t have happened. Lebron James—seemingly bored while waiting for the Liverpool-Manchester United match—was taking questions from his fans on Twitter last Saturday. And again, if it wasn’t for [...]
