Pacquiao to Marquez: “You Might As Well Eat Your S___ Too…”

September 21, 2009

As Manny Pacquiao walked in the gym in Baguio today, he was all smiles. A jolly and good mood Pacquiao is always a good sign of a good workout. But more than that, its also a sign of Manny the Joker was in the house. As we started to casually chat about the Mayweather – […]

Paul Lee Ate Puto-Pao Before Devouring The Tams

September 19, 2009

As I walked out of the court still in disbelief and in awe of what I just saw, I bump into Paul Lee, Pari Llagas, and Coach Lawrence. I asked Paul, anong kinain mo? Paul just smiled. It was Coach Lawrence who answers and said “Puto Pao pare! Puto Pao from Binondo!” Paul Lee was […]

Barroca or FEU? Who do we believe?

September 17, 2009

Stunned. That was my initial reaction when this whole hulabalu started. Primarily because I have had so much respect for FEU and their program this past 2 years. Specially after that whole shooting incident of Baracael which pretty much made the team closer. And then from the focus and determination that I have noticed from […]

Michael Jordan: The Greatest Of All-Time Finally In The Hall Of Fame

September 12, 2009

When i first heard the news that my childhood idol would be finally inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame, i was not surprised. What surprises me at times is how long the HOF takes to induct a well deserved athlete or coach. But none the less, nobody on this planet will ever doubt that […]

THE DLSU THAT COULD’VE BEEN…

September 10, 2009

Now that the season is officially over for DLSU, it got me thinking again as to how this should not be how they fared this year. Firstly, I honestly feel uneasy to see the best college coach so far in UAAP history get eliminated by NU and wrap up the season at 5-9. It’s just […]

Is Rey Joble’s “Aguilar To Receive P18M From Gilas” Libelous?

September 2, 2009

Not too long ago I wrote a piece in my Abante column that got me in some first time major hot water. See it wrote about this private individual (note: not a government official) and how his mis-doings in a private association were to say “manipulative”. I cited a highly credible source whom had first […]

Japeth: (sing it with me now) he had the right move (love) at the wrong time…

September 2, 2009

So the basketball world has been rocked once again with the controversy involving Japeth Aguilar and his “change of heart” leaving Burger King and the PBA in the air with his desire to move to play fulltime with the Smart Gilas developmental team. He says he simply wants to play for the country. He admits […]

DOES DLSU NEED AN OVERHAUL?

August 21, 2009

In the last three games of DLSU we have seen them in a sort of nasty tailspin. Just when they got hot on a four game winning streak and capping it off with a heroic come from behind win vs UST in double overtime, they hit a hump. It must have been a nasty hump and seems to have them head backwards again. Yes arguably two of those losses were to arch rivals Ateneo who many would concede as clearly the stronger and more experienced team vs the Archers. But you have to look closer at the losses, not just the points, but also the effectivity of what they try to do.
