Here are a few things you should do today: Wish Samboy Lim a speedy recovery, celebrate Jamie Herrel's Miss Earth 2014 victory, listen to what the Maserati driver had to say in his defense, and save up if you want to buy Manny Pacquiao's Forbes Park mansion!
First and foremost, we would like everyone to pray for Samboy "Skywalker" Lim, who was rushed to the Medical City in Ortigas last Friday after falling unconscious following his participation in an exhibition game. As of this writing, the 52-year-old f0rmer San Miguel Beer legend is still in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit. Get well soon, idol...the game won't be the same without you.
2) HOMECOURT ADVANTAGE: Miss Philippines is Miss Earth 2014!
FHM Nation, let's all congratulate Jamie Herrel, the 20-year-old Cebuana who bested 83 candidates from all over the world to capture this year's Miss Earth crown. "Global warming has been known to be a long, overdue issue," Jamie pointed out during the question and answer portion. "I will use my title to inspire others and help our environment. We start with the kids...the kids are the people of tomorrow." You deserve it, Jamie!
3) BEST DAY EVER: Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova meet face-to-face

During Day Two of the International Premiere Tennis League yesterday, November 30, Ana Ivanovic (Macromax Indian Aces) laid the smackdown on Maria Sharapova (Manila Mavericks) en route to a 6-3 victory. The Philippines lost the match, sure, but after seeing two of our dream girls duke it out in the same court, can you really call it a defeat? We don't see anyone complaining.
4) THE WAIT IS OVER: Jinri Park's 2015 calendar is now available!
"Lookie what just arrived from the press. Your Jinri Park calendar is hitting the stands this week," writes Jay Tablante on his Instagram page. In The Mood: The Jinri Park 2015 Calendar is now available exclusively at Big Boys Toy Store in Greenhills, San Juan. Bili na!
5) THE FORCE AWAKENS: The latest Star Wars stills are out!
Joseph Russell Ingco, the Maserati driver who allegedly mauled a traffic enforcer for taking a video of him, claims that he was attacked first. "Hinawi ko po yung video. Noong nahawi ko na po, hinampas niya po ang mukha ko," he reveals to ANC News. "Pagkahampas niya sa mukha ko, hawak-hawak niya ang braso ko. Yung isa kong kamay, nasa manibela lang. Wala akong pwersa kasi nasa loob ako ng sasakyan." Ingco supposedly had no choice but to fight back and drive off. Hmmm...the jury's still out on this one.

7) WAIT A MINUTE: That traffic enforcer may not be as innocent as we all think
Jorbe Adriatico, the traffic constable who was punched by Ingco last week, may not be as harmless as he sounds. In a letter read on air by DZMM anchor Ted Failon, a female motorist accused Adriatico of punching her car and shouting hurtful words at her back in February 2013. You know what else? Before the Maserati incident, another female motorist filed a similar complaint against him last month. Patay tayo diyan!
8) IBENTA MO SA OLX: Manny Pacquiao is selling his Forbes Park mansion for P708 million

Most of Manny's neighbors allegedly want him gone for a reason: They're not comfortable with him accepting visitors who aren't, uhm, sosyal. "I may be as rich as some of them here, but my lifestyle remains the same and so is my heart," he tells Balitanghali. "I'm just a simple man. I will never change that. Nakakahiya naman sa mga kapitbahay ko na may mga bisita akong naka-tsinelas lang. Baka nakakaistorbo ako, siyempre sikat na sikat na subdivision yun."
9) PARA-PARAAN: One netizen thinks Mar Roxas should be president...because he rode the MRT
"This is the humble and modest trait of Mar Roxas," the admin of the Oras Na, Roxas Na Facebook pagewrote last Saturday. "Kung ibang nasa mataas na posisyon sa gobyerno 'yan, malamang ay ginamit na nila ang kanilang impluwensiya at koneksyon para makarating ng mabilis sa kanilang pupuntahan. 'Yan si Mar. Hindi gumagamit ng police escorts. Hindi nang-bu-bully ng kapwa motorista. Ang karapat-dapat na sumunod na Presidente ng Pilipinas." What do you guys think?
10) HE STILL HAS IT: Kevin Garnett pulls a Mike Tyson on Joakim Noah
A Sunday afternoon game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Chicago Bulls saw the long-time rivals going at it once again, with Garnett attempting to bite Noah's hand. The Bulls gave the Nets a beatdown, 103-84, but it looks like the (im)moral victory belongs to the 39-year-old veteran. Iron Mike would be proud!
