Nice Movie Review from /film
But what I appreciated most was the way that the film captured the modern American male condition with thought and humor. On the whole, when men get married, study after study has demonstrated that they are more likely to depend more on their spouses for emotional support than they do on others, as opposed to females, who are typically able to maintain a more extensive social network. As a result, widowed men experience higher rates of depression and shorter periods until remarriage. When you couple this with conclusions such as those found in sociologists Robert Putnam’s book, Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of the American Community, you end up with a profound cynicism about the emotional life of the modern American male that’s become fairly pervasive in our culture (see: Fight Club). Putnam paints a pretty bleak picture of American social life, claiming that the ties that have bound us in our communities (e.g. bowling leagues) have withered dramatically to the detriment of civic engagement. In other words, these days, it’s difficult for men to keep quality male friends, and even harder for them to make new ones.
Strength and conditioning will be handled by Alex Ariza, who actually joined Team Pacquiao for the David Diaz fight last June.
Weight training, under Rob Peter’s watch, will entail rhythmic lifting of light weights to enhance Manny’s explosiveness to a large degree.
Pacquiao started sparring Tuesday against 5-foot-11 welterweight Rashad Holloway. Four more boxers will be called in to spar with the Filipino superstar in the next few weeks.
Last Wednesday, Pacquiao also started uphill jogs to build up his oxygen tank.
Incidentally, his 35-year-old nemesis has also been training in high altitude. For the first time since beating Arturo Gatti (in his last welterweight fight) in 2001, De La Hoya hightailed it to the snow-capped mountains of Big Bear, California, with master trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain.
