You're probably wondering how Super Bowl XLIII could make me proud of my color. How is that even related you say! Football + Super Bowl = color?! Mystery of Physics, Law of Math or I've simply lost my mind?
Actually, I almost did when I saw who the pre-game performers were! Mind you, I wasn't really paying attention to the pre-game until I heard them say "Journey!" - It was like an ON switch -my head instantly jerked up and immediately zeroed-in on the TV. Yes! Journey was performing! I almost fell out of the couch as I jumped up! - well, some beads flew up in the air and spilled onto the floors in the process - I was busy making bunch of jewelries for special orders - and that mere announcement jogged me out of my creative cocoon!
I was sqealing like a retarded "ah ah aaah! It's him! It's him!" - much to my husbands confusion looking at me puzzled. I must have looked like a lunatic waving pliers in both hands while pointing at the TV. "aaahhh! It's hiiimmmm!"
Arnel Pineda, the lead singer of Journey is Filipino - true and true. I'm Filipino. Needless to say, It made me so proud watching him performing live on national TV with not just a legendary band but SUPERBOWL! From Ellen DeGeneres show to SuperBowl! He definitley made his country and fellow Filipinos proud that day!
He, from yesterday and today, is the most popular topic in the blogosphere, Twitter and even on youtube! How Journey discovered him was also a unique journey all by itself! Karaoke anyone?Mabuhay ka Arnel! Mabuhay ang Pilipino!!!
