Prestigious exposure: "60 Minutes" to profile Manny Pacquiao

You must know the old joke about the guy who was so slow that it took him an hour and a half to watch the seminal CBS TV magazine show, "60 Minutes."
Well, the long running Sunday night program is zeroing in on Pinoy Idol Manny Pacquiao and it's no joke.
Promoter Bob Arum said CBS is going to start shooting material next Sunday at Coach Freddie Roach's funky Wild Card Gym in a scruffy section of Hollywood.
Maybe the CBS cameras can get some pithy quotes about Megamanny from that kid in Las Vegas, that Mayweather character.
"It just shows that interest in Manny has transcended sports, gone beyond that," Arum said by phone Sunday from his Las Vegas home.
"Good Morning America on the ABC network is also going to do something on Manny. It is really phenomenal how the interest is widening on Pacman."
The popular program does the occasional sports related profile, interview or story but not many.
