The Day of the Underdogs
And, to make things even more dramatic, all the underdogs won!
CONTENDER. Sergio Mora, aka the Latin Snake, while having an impressive 16W (3KO) 0L professional record, was the underdog. Peter Manfredo has a 24W (10KO) 2L and is 3rd in the world rankings. The finals was a let down -- too many commercial breaks and no oomph (meaning the lack of slow motion dramatization and music to go with it). Tells you how much of a boxing fan I am, ha! But, the underdog won. Sergio beat Peter easily with his superior speed and fitness.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. The champions league was another story altogether. Liverpool, the underdog, came back from the brink of defeat, a 3-0 deficit at half time to be exact, and won the trophy in the penalty shoot-out. How about that for a football Houdini trick! Reminds me of a soccer saying from a college friend, "The ball is round, anything can happen!". Indeed!
AMERICAN IDOL. Last, but not least, the American Idol, the series that I followed least closely. Rocker, Bo Bice, lost to the underdog country singer (Hey, Katong King said it, I didn't!), Carrie Underwood. I'm a little disappointed that the favorite didn't win. It would have been nice to have a rocker win that competition for a change! Well, I'm sure he'll still make it big, especially when he so impressed Clive Davis!
