I got a "too old for UAAP" comment yesterday from a friend I've met in an event. Instead of getting embarrassed (siguro mga 5 seconds lang), I remember how majority of big schools like DLSU and Ateneo's crowd during a basketball game--mga oldies na talaga. And sa UST and FEU halos mga students. Anyway, maganda din na may alumni na all-out support parin for their college teams. Aside from presence, I have this big-shot dream of being so successful to the point na ako na ang "MVP" (Pangilinan) ng UST. So yeah, malay niyo in the future part owner na ako ng team! Oha.
Anyway! Watched the BEST game ever yesterday. I wasn't expecting much, it has been years since we last won against the Blue Eagles. After being champions nung Season 69 (against them din!)... Sanay na kami sa talo. I wonder how that felt to them.
We were up against the big guys...As in physically (they've got Slaughter), and in terms of record (4-peat champion team)
Ang tagal bago we got our first points, and Ateneo just kept blocking our baskets, and successfully drove the ball through their net till they buried us with a depressing 19-point lead. Hurts to watch.
Crowd went wild with every outside shot of Jeric Teng, and unbelievable walang mintis shots of my now-favorite Aljon Mariano. Our hero!
