Last month, another item from my bucket list was strucked off. If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of basketball, more particularly collegiate basketball. With that, I’ve always wanted to watch a UAAP game live, and feel the thrill and excitement of college ball face to face.
One of the UAAP games I’m looking forward to watch is a La Salle basketball game. I’ve always been a fan of La Salle since God knows when, and aside from UP, DLSU has always been my dream school. Last year, I was privileged enough to step foot on and had a mini tour around the campus. Read about it here. 🙂
Last month, the Archers paid Cebu a visit thanks to the PCCL competition. PCCL is a country-wide basketball competition where the top-notch basketball teams all over the country compete for the title as the “champion of champions”. So when I heard that the Archers will come to Cebu, I hurriedly called my co-girl fans. I swear I was half-shouting, half-talking when I was on the phone. 😉 I never thought I’d see them play live in just a short time, especially that the UAAP season had just ended. Sure, I was planning to watch a game in Manila soon, but see them live in Cebu? NEVER!
Jersey number 9? That’s Jed Manguera, the guy I met in La Salle last year. 🙂
Who I watched the game with….
….Luigi de la Paz and Thomas Torres. Kidding! They’re part of the team but because of injury, they weren’t able to play. Sad.
With Mac Tallo.
DLSU Green Archers Captain LA Revilla.
They played against another UAAP team, the Adamson Falcons.
With Rodney Brondial.
I was really looking forward to watching this game, but I was disappointed. One, La Salle lost, ending their run for the PCCL 2012 title. Two, everyone was extra grumpy after the game. So, no pictures with the team. 😦 We were so disappointed that we actually tweeted about it. But at least, the players owned up their mistakes and ask Cebu for forgiveness. Apology accepted.
Although I did not enjoy the game a hundred percent, I still had fun because of the company I’m with. Thank you Inj and Bianx. Until next time. 😉 Welcome to the club, Mars and Star. See you next game! 🙂
Win or lose, Animo La Salle!!!
