“Ateneo has MVP, or telecommunication honcho and sports philantrophist Manny V. Pangilinan. La Salle has San Miguel’s Danding Cojuangco. National U has Henry Sy and the massive SM chain of malls. And MOA Arena too. Now who or what is feeding the Tigers? Who is supporting UST?” -Ate Eva’s! hahaha just kiddin. It’s the whole Thomasian Community! 3P’s for the win!
Lipa City, Batangas
It’s our ninth month since my wife and I got married. She’s eight and a half months pregnant now. And we’re celebrating in some coffee shop here in Lipa City on this one cold, rainy night. It turned out to be a double celebration as University of Santo Tomas brought down National U, 76-69, to clinch the last spot to the UAAP Season 76 Finals. There, the Tigers will face the La Salle Archers in a best-of-three championship. For all the marbles. Flashback to the 90s when, to tell you all honestly, the time when I started to write sports stories, first with the Manila Times, then for The Philippine STAR, the paper you read from cover to cover (Shameless!).
You see, my wife is ecstatic. Delirious actually. She’s a UST alumna and went to high school at La Salle-Lipa. It’s a win-win situation…
