Villar's Bilyar

One of the "nicer" things that Senate President Manny Villar did was organize the Villar Cup. One, billiards is one thing we're good at and second, his name is almost a homonym to "bilyar." So I didn't know there was a controversy behind the 1st Villar Cup until Villar's camp sent an email to me (and presumably to the rest of the media) about Efren "Bata" Reyes denying that they joined the tournament only because of the money. Reyes also said (the statement was in Filipino) that Villar is not "incompetent" to hold such tournament and that they were not paid to join the senator's gimmick. Paying top players to join a tournament is the norm in golf and presumably in billiards as well. So what's all the sour-graping all about then? Roxas can have a market beautification contest to remind people that he is "Mr. Palengke" or encourage people to cook meals at P50 (Roxas). Bayani Fernando can hold cycling tournaments to remind people that he is the only one to install bike lanes in his city. Or maybe a tenor singing contest. Noli de Castro can have a dwarf-tossing contest. It's all in the image, peepz.
