Byron-Garbo’s showdown-A A +A
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
BYRON Garcia, the fightingest brother of suspended Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia, has challenged Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 Director Marcelo Garbo Jr. to a fistfight, “mano a mano,” at the Cebu City Sports Center (CCSC)) after reports the governor would be forced to leave her office.
But Garbo said he’s not a boxer. He instead suggested for Byron to challenge boxing icon Rep. Manny Pacquiao.
Sorry folks. There would be no “Thrilla at the CCSC.”
Byron Garcia was principally credited for the dancing inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), which gained fame on YouTube with the mass dancing of the late Micheal Jackson’s “Thriller,” with about a hundred million hits.
If a fistfight is out of the question, why not a dancing match between Byron Garcia and General Garbo?
Dancing is a good exercise and has been known to relieve stress.
General Garbo said Byron Garcia acts childish. “Para siyang bata,eh,” he said.
Stress is difficult to address. In India, they have the laughing yoga. Here at home, more prefer dancing to relieve stress.
That’s the reason General Garbo and Byron Garcia may dance together, probably the latest dance craze, South Korean Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
A Sun.Star Cebu report said Psy’s "Gangnam Style" has become a hit for jingles among politicians running in the 2013 elections.
Among those who used the Gangnam Style for their campaign jingle was Annabelle Rama.
But some neighborhoods have their own version of "Gangnam Style." They call it,
“Utang, dagan style.”
General Garbo has recommended the revocation of the firearms license of the governor’s son, Pablo III, and his two friends.
This certainly has nothing to do with the recent spate of violence in Luzon involving the deaths of scores of people, all gun-related.
Lawmakers have to take a look at gun ownership in this country, especially for those who have no license to possess guns at all.
