Who hasn't heard the old saying, "Three strikes and your out"? Yes, it's a term used in baseball but it is readily available for just about anything in life. In the case of Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao, Mayweather feels that the third time was a charm... yes, another term used so often for a wide ranging scope.
Quoted on Yahoo Sports shortly after the official announcement that Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was on and set for May 2, Mayweather told the publication: "Everybody was talking about it and it didn't happen, and then it started up again and it didn't happen again. They say three strikes and you're out, and I guess the third time is a charm."
It should be noted that had negotiations failed this time, it was more then safe to assume the rule: 3 strikes, you're out. (I mean really... how much more could any of us take?!) Thankfully for all of us, it's third time a charm.
