WYNGARD TRACY PASSES AWAY

Ace talent manager Wyngard Tracy has succumbed to Stroke last November 16 at 3:45am (Manila time) in Makati Medical Center. He was known for being the manager of talents like Richard and Lucy Gomez, Wendell Ramos, John Estrada, and Prescilla Meirelles, who were then managed by Douglas Quijano, who died too last year. He has undergone a heart surgery due to a heart attack he suffered last July.

He has been active in the business since the 70s. His first exposure was being a disc jockey in DWWK-FM. The next decade, he began managing celebrities, and his stint with the Vicor Music Corporation kicked off his what would be his career in the next two decades. He also became a judge of various talent shows such as “Search for a Star in a Million” (ABS-CBN, 2005) and others.

We would like to pay condolences to him and his family.

MANNY DOES IT AGAIN!

November 13, 2010. The day Filipinos won the hearts of every nation. This was the day Manny Pacquiao won the WBC Welterweight Championship against the “reborn” Antonio Margarito at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas. The fight ended in 12 rounds, with a final score of 120-108.

Pacquiao is in his usual form. His small stature made an advantage of escaping from Margarito cornering him as he was doing some strategies, too. Alas, he also punched him near the right eye. And finally, Filipinos are as usual, are very proud of him, and so do I.

Manny, congratulations, and please face that Mayweather guy.

(PS: The fight had a funny part, too. During the post-fight interview, Manny actually said something funny, and it goes something like this:

“I’m trying to psycho him.”

That made me laugh. He exerted effort (in speaking English) huh? YT Video?
