Pacquaio'ed | Pacquiao'd | Pacquiaoed

Believe it or not, the People's Champ, Manny Pacquiao is no longer just a noun but has become a verb as well!

In Today's inquirer column by Raul Palabrica, he wrote that an American sports reporter described the results of a basketball game using Manny Pacquiao's name. The article referred to the post-game analysis of the playoff match between the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks which the Nuggets won convincingly. The reporter reportedly said that the Mavericks were not simply defeated but were actually "Pacquiao'd!"

Searching over the net I encountered this article by veteran sports columnist Bill Plashchke where in he questioned the capabilities of the L.A. Lakers team to win an NBA title after losing to the Houston Rockets 100-92 in the first game of the Western Conference semifinals. He added that the team didn't just lose but that "they were Pacquiao'ed."

The term is being used to describe a convincing victory in a sports event.

Wow! Manny Pacquiao is another step closer to immortality. I hope a lot more people will use it so that it will officially become a word. If "Imeldific", which was associated with Imelda Marcos, made it through, I'm sure this will too. At least, this one, we can be proud of. (^o^)/

Share it! Spread it!

  1. pacquiao is really an inspiration. i hope he won't continue his plans to run for an office so my image of him will always be associated with being a hero rather than being a part of the dirty politics.
