Manny Pacquiao won the WBC junior middleweight title (i.e. his 8th title in an 8th weight class) and I was there to witness this historic event. I saw a quote earlier today on my friend Kathy's facebook page and it struck me. The quote my friend posted was, "
Boxing. I just might be "hooked"...
Like my pictures and videos? Here's the camera I have that I used. I've had this camera for over a year now and I love it. **** For some reason, a little puff of smoke comes out of the top of it, when I shoot pictures. I think it's just because my pictures are HOT!!!! :-P
