Take care of that knee, Tony ONE

Sun.Star Pampanga - - LIFESTYLE! -

amaz­ing thing about Tony Aldeguer is, he replies quickly to let­ters.

I know many peo­ple who are so un­like Tony. One of them is Bis­tek Bautista, the grad­u­at­ing mayor of Que­zon City, who has never replied to any­one when called upon to speak on a mat­ter con­cern­ing his turf. Not even to the fa­mous Ted Failon.

A.

I wish Bis­tek could learn a thing or two about ethics from Tony

But to press the is­sue fur­ther, aren’t most politi­cians like that? You only mat­ter to them when they are on the cam­paign trail. Af­ter giv­ing them your vote, you next be­come his­tory to them.

If only looks could kill?

Ah, never mind. Why stain your soul with nin­com­poops?

Thus, if ev­ery­body is like Tony, this world will be a bet­ter place to live in.

Here’s Tony’s re­ply to my let­ter to him last week.

“Dear Al,

“It is re­ally nice to hear from you again af­ter such a long time. “With re­gard to my fit­ness reg­i­men, my age-stricken knee no longer al­lows me to jog, although I do a 3x’s a week con­di­tion­ing at the UCMED re­hab gym.

“It has been over two (2) years since I re­tired from box­ing—even long be­fore Mark Magsayo opted to leave ALA Pro­mo­tions. My man­age­rial con­tract with him at that time al­ready ex­pired and I did not re­new my li­cense with GAB as a box­ing man­ager.

“Would you be­lieve that since my re­tire­ment I never stepped even once in my own gym? Yes Al—not even just for a minute.

“Hon­estly speak­ing, I am not privy on the case of Magsayo—more so now that it is in the hands of the court.

“This, in it­self, pre­vents me from do­ing any­thing—not even to ask Michael to ac­cede to your re­quest. I am with you in hop­ing that this mat­ter could be set­tled once and for all and I pray it would be soon for the good of all con­cerned.

“A friend al­ways, Tony.”

Your ges­ture is worth an Olympic gold.

Your son is also like my son: Power en­trusted him is his and his alone.

Opin­ions not wanted. That’s why we are bud­dies.

But, hey, con­tinue work­ing on that knee, please?

Knee is move­ment and move­ment is life, re­mem­ber? Bests.

If we are not asked, shut up.
