  1. Spoelstra actually comes here every year. Unlike Blatche who is a pure ringer . Once again typical Pinoy attitude shines through. KSP is the root of all evil and pwede na yan.

  2. Pacquiao wants another top paying sport’s job? He should try Football,but dunno if he can kick harder than he can punch..

    Oh, hell… :\
