Good News, Everyone: Paris Hilton Will Attend Pacquiao-Mosley

Guys! Guys! I ran all the way over here to tell you this and I'm really out of breath, so give me a second. It was a long trek from Facebook, and I'm pretty fat and out of shape, so running isn't really my thing...so just...

Hang on...

a second...

OK. OK. Listen. Good news. Paris Hilton got her VIP bracelet and will be in attendance on May 7 when Manny Pacquiao fights Shane Mosley.

I know many of you were worried that perhaps Paris wouldn't be there, or that maybe her VIP bracelet got lost, but rest assured, all is in order. The true boxing fans of the world might not be able to make it to the MGM Grand on May 7, but Paris Hilton will be there, cheering on her favorite boxer(s) and generally having the time of her life.

This announcement, in all seriousness, was met with about the enthusiasm most actual boxing fans would likely expect. I won't really recommend going and reading the comments, since they're largely classless, but the annoyance and anger is pretty justified. Real boxing fans barely have a hope in hell of being able to get into a fight like this even in the struggling Vegas economy, so they're poking the bear by letting them know that Paris f***ing Hilton is going?

And please, spare me and the rest of us the remote possible inkling of an idea that Paris Hilton actually gives a crap about this fight or any fight.

I usually don't get my dander up about things like this, but something here truly rubbed me the wrong way. This isn't Denzel Washington or Spike Lee, guys I can imagine kick back some Saturday nights and flip on a fight on Showtime or HBO simply because they enjoy watching a fight.

I pray to God we aren't headed this way. I don't want HBO promising a PPV interview with the Kardashian sisters during Mayweather-Spadafora, or Lindsay Lohan as a guest emcee for Solo Boxeo Tecate. There's only so much shameless, nauseating, and frankly embarrassing attempts at elbow-rubbing from the boxing community I can handle. It's one thing to show me that Liev Schreiber is there. It's another to tell me a month ahead of time that Paris Hilton will be, and that she "tweeted" about it.

This was all quite pointless, and I admit that, but goddamn it...I had to get that off my chest.
