Open Thread, Manny Pacquiao Vs. Shane Mosley Edition

So continues our marathon coverage of one of the biggest fights of 2011, Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley on May 7. Previously: the stakes of the bout. Next: the keys to the fight.

Welcome to the Open Thread. The Open Thread is you. In other words: Welcome to yourself. Trippy.

Please use this edition to discuss whatever stray Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley thoughts you have stuck in your craw. Or don’t. Use it for anything. Anything at all. That’s the point of Open Thread: We just talk stuff. Recommended Open Thread aid: Drunkenness.

I’ll be in and out of the Open Thread all day (just like I was your mom yesterday) so chat amongst yourselves. Circulate. Get to know one another.

And make use of this month’s musical selection. Nilsson may have been Mr. Pretty-Voiced Semi-Folkie at times, but sometimes he would just straight rock you.
