I love Manny Pacquiao. He is inspiring and a true hero. I wrote about Manny a while back and received a wonderful response from the people of the Philippines. You can read that blog here: Manny Blog
An entire country loves this man and I got emails from Filipino people around the world talking about how much they respect and admire him. I was moved by all the love that was sent out into the universe for Manny through the Jewish Journal.
Yesterday I went to get my eyes checked. I was in the medical building waiting for the elevator when a woman came up to me and asked if I was Ilana Angel. She was super cute and dressed in a nursing outfit. I told her I was, and she then asked if I was the “Angel from the Jewish newspaper”. I laughed and told her yes I was. Then, in the lobby of my doctor’s office, in front of a bunch of people, she hugged me.
Her name was Irene and she told me she has been in love with Manny forever and her cousin, who lives in the Philippines, sent her my blog after he found it online. She said she thought it was a great article and was so happy I had written about her hero. It was really amazing. This man has the love of so many and deserves it all. He is inspiring, talented, a mensch, and a man that I want my son to be like when he grows up. Minus the punching!
I was reminded of what a wonderful man Manny is and at the same time introduced into this week’s number one Douchelord, Christopher Lee. Lee is a Republican Congressman from New York State, and he is a pig. He resigned after he was caught contacting women on Craig’s List for dates. He was presenting himself as a 39 year old, divorced, lobbyist, when in fact he is a 46 year old, married dad.
I honestly do not understand how someone so accomplished can be such a moron. He threw away his career to get laid by a stranger online. Dumbass. It has nothing to do with what side of the political fence he is on, what matters is that he disrespected every person who voted for him, as well as his wife and child. Craig’s List? Really? This guy is an idiot and is on the A Train to hell.
I date online and this guy makes me never want to do it again. He is in the public eye, people know who he is, and yet he is willing to lie, knowing how easily he can get caught. It makes you wonder what others, with less to loose, are willing to do online in an attempt to escape their lives, or perhaps kill someone. I need to close all my dating accounts, get a cat, a Trojan massager, and call it a day.
Christopher Lee is a pig and this week’s Douchelord.
Manny Pacquiao is a mensch and I’d like to meet him one day.
Hello to my new friend Irene. Thank you for saying hello and for your kindness. It was lovely to speak with you and I look forward to reading the articles you sent me about our hero Manny. It’s interesting how two men can be so opposite. One is a saint and one is going to hell. If I am insane enough to continue my quest for love online, I hope I find myself a Manny and not a douchelord. All I can do it trust in myself, believe God has a plan, and keep the faith.
