I am blogging this already even though I have not watch this movie yet (1 hour and 32 minutes). I hope this movie portrays the true essence of the sportsmanship in cockfighting in the level of horse racing.
Where you actually create the animal you want to perform at the best of competition by just plain common sense and a little knowledge of genetics and mendelism will bring you to your goal a little quicker.
So be warned that you maybe watching a propaganda of the liberty tramplers aka Peta and HSUS. Just use your common sense. In all endeavors in life, there are always bad and good guys. And cockfighting is the same. We all make mistake or just plain stupid or a moron. Even in the NBA and NFL, we have heard about alleged crimes committed by the professional players. In fact NFL has a record of 35% of its players has been arrested. Even Tiger Woods is implicated in pubic scandal. Which is really Tiger’s own business and it is private.
So if you are a young kid who did not even have an interest in animal, let your intuition guide you. Do not listen to others. Decide for your self.
For me, cockfighting is the great equalizer. The billionaires and the masses alike have an equal chance of winning an International Event. The high society and the rural folks. The living legend of cockfighting and the beginner. The old and young. Men and women. The professionals like lawyers, doctors, engineers. The uneducated and illiterate.
It’s like running the marathon. Kenya has an advantage even though they are impoverish nation. What it is? It could genetic? It could be evolution? It could be training? It could be environmental? Whatever it is… I am sure ambition to prove thyself is important.
To be the greatest in the world! You can be Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Mohammad Ali, Manny Pacquiao, Ian Thorpe, Lance Armstrong, and my favorite Jose Raul Capablanca.
Or you can be… yourself. And triumph.
