I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.

Orang baik

I love heroes. No, I'm not talking about the TV series that I'm downloading like crazy recently. I'm talking about larger-than-life people that makes the world a better place to live in. I sound like a character from Pleasantville, but that's as honest as I can get about it.
I don't know how many times I've said this, but I'll say it again.

I love Oprah.

Her show has got to be the most feel-good thing you can get on television nowadays. Better than P. Ramlee re-runs. Even better than the feel-good channel that feeds me Extreme Makeover (What the hell were these people thinking??)

So okay, Oprah is one of my heroes. Even Michael Moore agrees with me on this. And what can be more heroic than featuring everyday heroes on your own bloody TV show?
Oh, by the way I just learned that it's actually quite un-manly to proclaim that you watch Oprah. Ahh, screw those junkies. I know how manly I can get and watching Oprah doesn't screw it up one bit. Unless you're not even sure of your own manliness, you stupid fag.

Anyway, today's episode (they show re-runs on Astro) featured this guy who's a huge Chicago White Sox fan who sacrificed a lot (his World Series tickets) just to help out victims of the Katrina hurricane. Quote from the Chicago White Sox:

"He took up a collection in his neighborhood for supplies - water, food, clothing, toys - and rented a van to drive the supplies to New Orleans himself. When he returned, he realized the trip put him over budget. To pay for his costs, the lifelong Sox fan gave up his chance to witness history by selling his World Series tickets. After seeing the devastation and shattered lives, Devlin realized that baseball was important, but not nearly as important as helping others in need."

To get a clearer picture of the situation, the White Sox won the 2005 World Series. The World Series is the ultimate prize in pro-baseball, played out in a best-of-seven game series. It was their first win since 1917. That's a bloody 88 years man!
Only a true sports fan would know the meaning of the sacrifice made by this man. It's like me sacrificing my Wembley ticket to watch Newcastle win the FA Cup Final. Like Liverpool fans sacrificing their Istanbul ticket to help out others. Goodness! I can't even imagine myself doing it for the sake of charity.
So even though things have been dried and dusted, Ryan Devlin, you just made my bloody, jamban-visiting day! My hats off to you!

And oh, thanks Oprah for the pointer ;)
