December 6, 2008 will go down in history as the night Manny Pacquiao became a superstar. It’s also the night where two groups threw Manny Pacquiao after parties in Las Vegas. One was the official one. One wasn’t.
The second installment of the Pacquiao – De La Hoya 24/7 series was, once again, a solid piece of documentary work by the HBO Sports crew. The show depicted Pacquiao as a loving husband as he spent some alone time with his wife Jinkee listening to the pulses of their unborn child using an electronic device pressed against Jinkee’s very pregnant belly. This was a much needed improvement from the last episode’s display of karaoke coldness from Manny.
