Friday, December 5, 2008


Look how much classier Manny looks than Oscar!

Mandy and i around Halloween the first and only time i've worn my Pacman the Filipino Warrior
shirt! tomorrow he will surely eat up the Golden Boy! As long as Manny moves around alot wearing Oscar down, uses his speed and combos, avoids Oscars left hooks and throws lots of looping right hooks the fight is a done deal! Anyway come on down Saturday night if you would like to watch the fight!!! its gona be fun!!!

Victoria doesnt have many secrets left

Thats right fellas (and the lady folk aswell) this Wednesday is a big day one that will go down in the history books all are welcome to come watch at the Knaphus household!

Pacman vs. The Golden Boy

Well as it is less than a week away I feel obligated to let everyone know whats up! Manny Pacquiao, the pound for pound best boxer in the world, and Oscar De La Hoya will be having what is being called the fight of the year!!! it will be a 12 round fight at the 147lbs welterweight! 147lbs is a big disadvantage for Manny as he has never challenged anyone out of a featherweight or lightweight classes. Manny is for sure the underdog!

Oscar De La Hoya has been training at the BIG Bear training camp living like a king. He is being trained by legends like Nacho Beristain, Angelo Dundee, and Edwin Valero! meanwhile Manny is training in Wild card boxing gym in Hollywood Cali, a gym full of boxers of all levels his trainer Freddie Roach has been working hard with Manny and its going to be an amazing fight. Freddie Roach also trained Oscar De La Hoya for one fight and claims to know what needs to be done to win this fight.

Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao has a record of 47 wins, 3 losses, and 2 draws. 35 of his 47 wins were by KO!


Less than a week!

Show your support.
Post a shoutout for Manny.

Vaccines for the Philippines II

Well I thought I would give this a little update as I have been home for a few days! I have included a few pictures so hopefully you can see how cool this was and maybe even come next year!!! The trip started off with us all jumping on Jeepneys and riding through the jungle to get to "Behind the Clouds" which is a really neat little town way far in the middle of the island of Bohol (where we were the whole trip). We participated in building houses and performing medical clinics involving check ups for anyone who wanted, dental, circumcision's for the young little boys, haircuts and lots of other stuff. It was such a neat experiance!
This is a picture of the whole group in Behind the Clouds, Bohol

mission reunion

OK... well this is quite the story and i will do my best to tell it just as it happened. It all starts on a crazy Saturday morning after 5 hours of work, hauling stone in Sun Valley Idaho, I started my 4 hour drive to Logan Utah for my PCM( Philippines Cebu Mission) reunion! as i got close to Logan I found the road was closed this although not such a big deal was at the time after a long morning! i finally made it to the reunion where about 30 or so people were waiting for me to get started! IT WAS AMAZING!!!! so fun to see all my old mission buddies and Pres. and Sis Anderson! Everybody was doing so good and i had the time of my life. I loved my mission and i kinda had the opportunity to relive it for a little while i cant wait to go back next week and visit all the areas , foods , dodongs, indays and families that i love! Anyways on the way home i was on a spiritual high and thought i would try to listen to some church talks... Not the best idea i made it through one but the second was literally putting me to sleep after all i was driving until 2 am Sunday morning it was a ruff drive but thanks to screaming out to the music i was listening to and rolling down the windows i made the drive and had a wonderful\ very long day!

valley trips, feasts and climbing

Eating our feast at the Pioneer Saloon! i have never seen so much food well other than the weekly visit to Sun Valley brunch!
This is my AWESOME sister and me at work! Mub and Mandy came up for a few days last week and it was a blast! We chilled a lot but also had some epic feasts, fun climbs, and plus its just fun to have some visitors every now and then!!!
lastly this is our climb! it was a really fun climb although the rock was way more slick than i would have liked. it made for some crazy holds and really obscure movements and lines up this awesome feature!
well my time here is winding down but we should still get in a few more sweet shots and i'll keep everyone posted on my awesome life!!!
