Stalker’s Tale – Too Obsessed or Crazy ?

We are all familiar with stories of celebrity stalkers following their idols wherever they went, sometimes crossing continents just to be in the neighborhood, to stay close. The force of attraction is extraordinarily strange because the odds of the stalker engaging in a face to face conversation with the celebrity is utterly slim if not nil. But the thought of being around the corner is good enough to assuage the anxiety and the hope of an eventual meeting and possibly a communion is ever present, the consummation of which would be tantamount to a trek to nirvana in the afterlife. The stalker never loses hope as in the case of Gerald James Klein , 59 years old and stalker extraordinaire. Klein had been stalking a woman he met at a wedding party when he was 29 years old and has not stopped since. The woman is no celebrity but Klein has vowed never to stop pursuing her until she acquiesces to his marriage proposal. Klein claims that the woman broke her promise to marry him and declared that it would take a “supernatural intervention by God himself” to make him give up his goal. As Klein was twiddling with his thumbs for 30 years hoping for her to come back, the woman had moved on with life and got married, had children, got widowed and remarried. Klein sued the woman 4 times and was recently handed a 3 year jail sentence for criminal harrassment. The man refuses psychological treatment hence the reason for prolonging his agony and the misery for the poor woman.

I am not a psychologist but in my humble mind, I’m asking the question – what the heck is wrong with this dork? I’ve had my share of going nuts over women but I would never give up 3 decades of my life hoping for someone to like me! Where is the self-respect? It took me a while to realize that summer baseball and the winter hockey leagues that kids go through isn’t just for fun. It teaches children how to feel the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. It teaches them how to rejoice in victory and grieve in defeat. It prunes the sore loser syndrome out of their system. How should the state deal with a guy who refuses to accept defeat , appeals his case to the higher courts and continues to harrass and stalk the poor woman? Let me wear the robe and cast my verdict.

BW’s verdict : straightjacket, no more appeals – off to the mental institution

On Pacquiaomania :

As I watched the replay of the Pacquiao-Morales 3 fight the other night, I can’t help thinking of this scenario – what if Pacquiao enters politics and runs for public office ? Will it affect his career which is at its peak at the moment? Pacquaio today is heralded as one of boxing’s top draw, a promoter’s golden boy, a boxer who commands a respectable $3-$5 million purse per fight. Whoever advises Pacquiao MUST consider this once in a lifetime opportunity, a lucrative and productive 3 year stretch until he turns 30 where he can make the most money and retire without any misgivings. Pacquiao had been quoted saying that he wants to return the favor of politicians who helped him when he was down. This is the kind of statement you do not want to hear from Pacquiao because it spells only one thing – distraction. Politics can wait but boxing can’t. Youth in such a demanding sport is an asset – play it with focus and with fresh, young legs. Unfortunately the crocodile politicians cannot wait. It sickens me to death to see these vultures exploit people for their own selfish interests.

Jimrex Jaca lost the fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. Many thought he jumped the ladder too quickly. The opposition was too strong. The fight was also riddled with contractual controversy. Jaca’s Pinoy promoter claims Jaca violated his contract by accepting the fight with a U.S. based promoter. Here’s the rub. The Pinoy promoter offered Jaca a paltry $7,500 for the title fight while his U.S. counterpart pledged $42,000. During the pre-fight , TV announcers talked about Jaca getting paid an equivalent $1 for his fights back in RP. Sounds too incredulous to me but the point is made. The poor chap is too underpaid for what he does for a living. The full details of the contractual squabble between Jaca and his Pinoy promoter was not disclosed but Jaca mentioned something about his desire to make decent money for his family prompted him to switch promoters. As long as you did not do anything illegal, good on you Jimrex. Enough said of exploitative promoters.

  1. Bejeesusz! 30 years of stalking; now, that’s clearly unheard of. I reckoned the guy has enough gall that he could swim on it for hours—like you said, he is certainly a nut case.

    About Pacquiao going into politics, that’s clearly a most stupid decision if ever. It could most possibly ruined his good reputation since in politics, nothing is sacred. From being a national hero and a legend that he is right now, he might be ruined and become a disreputed politician.

  2. Pacquiao is a good boxer. But I hate to see him in politics.

  3. Decades of stalking and he has the guts to sue the woman? Bloody fool! [sori] lol. That guy should be in a mental assylum years ago.

    Pacquiaoism: He should stay with boxing. Your analysis is true. Age does matter. While he’s still young…fight and fight. [sus maryosep]. If he owes something to thee politicians, offer in kind or in cash. Not going into politics with them.

  4. Love is blind! Good thing! πŸ˜‰

    Pacquiao should not run for vice- major but run for presidnt! πŸ˜‰

  5. Major Tom – 30 years is a darn long time. This will probably make it to the Guiness Book of Records πŸ™‚ LOL..

  6. Ituloy – same here. Pacquiao must focus on what he does best and that is boxing. I look forward to see him beat the cream of the crop in the division.

  7. Ipanema – the suing part is a real downer. It’s so grossly stupid as if to say – OK you won the case, shall I marry you now? LOL..

    I love the sus maryosep.. ha ha.. He sure has sturdy legs, courtesy of the kilawin he’s found of eating πŸ™‚

  8. Sidney – you bet , love is truly blind as in this case.. LOL.. he’s so blinded and enamored by his love that he forgot all about the girl’s feelings .he he.

    Pacquaio for president.. nice idea.. he can at least promote the sport of boxing in the Congress and Senate. As sparring session , a few jarring shots to the heads of our politicians won’t hurt… it will probably realign their grey matter at the right spots… LOL πŸ™‚

  9. My opinion is these people lack self-esteem and are delusional. They seem to believe that the subject they are stalking is the one and only purpose of their life on this planet, and that it is their destiny to be with that person. But I admire them for one thing though, and that is PATIENCE. I wish I had some of that patience in pursuing women, hehehe. πŸ˜€

    As for Pacquiao entering politics. It is inevitable,unfortuntely. What with those thick-skinned politicians surrounding him all the time and their promises of victory, it wouldn’t be long before he is seduced by the, err… dark side. LOL, kinda sounds like Star Wars.

  10. Sngl – this guy Klein has extreme patience my friend.. LOL. like waiting for the stars to fall from the sky πŸ™‚ There’s a saying that say – the greatest prayer is patience. I guess this guy took it too literally πŸ™‚ We all need patience esp when it comes to girls.. I’m sure you do. It’s never too late.. hehehe.

    I just hope these vulture politicians don’t brainwash Pacquiao and convince him that there’s more money to be had in politics more than boxing πŸ™‚

  11. what a stalker! i agree with you, he should be put into mental institution.

    and with pacquiao, it seems like he will go into politics with the way he answers questions

  12. Tin – see that stalker in the picture? He doesn’t know that the train is moving fast and his head is going to hit the wall. hehehe. price to pay for being too nosey πŸ™‚

  13. 30 years of stalking?! Such obsession. Some one should help this guy hit his head on the wall. Pity.

    And pity as well for Pacman if he does push through with politics. This is a game where he’ll be knocked ou without him knowing. He’s career will fall! He can help people other ways aside from politics.

  14. Ferdz – if I was 59 years old, I would have second thoughts going to jail because I can’t marry a woman who doesn’t like me ! πŸ™‚

    Yes, he can only be one thing at a time – a boxer or a politician and never both. If I were him i’d select what I do best and that is knocking people down with my punch.. LOL..
