So yeah…

Ever since I started to work two years ago, I haven’t really watched ay sports on the boob tube. Television and work just doesn’t go on the same wave. So, I guees that’s it for my short-lived Sport Journalism stint.

And I do appreciate everybody posting comments and stuff. If ever i have the chance to watch UAAP again, I’ll try to blog it.

So anyway, since I don’t really want to leave wordpress.  I created a new blog, a personal one. Do check it out if you guys have time:

UAAP season 71

Because of my job, I now can’t watch every UAAP and NCAA games. But then again I have to work can’t complain much.

Anyway, even though season 71 started weeks ago, for my Final Four this season I guess I have to stick to my season 70 final four, no further explanation needed:

  1. UST Growling Tigers
  2. ADMU Blue Eagles
  3. DLSU Green Archers
  4. UE Red Warriors

Still I think UP got a long way to go, team is still young. AdU and FEU can be contenders but I’m not sure if both teams have the drive to be the champs (even though both are on the upper half of the tally board). Jervy Cruz still for the MVP title? I have a feeling it would still be.

Team standings ( as of 072408 )

ADMU 4 – 0 UE 2 – 2

DLSU 3 – 1 UST 1 – 3

FEU 3 – 1 UP 1 – 3

AdU 2 – 2 NU 0 – 4

Magnolia kicks off with a victory

The Magnolia Beverage Masters slammed the youthful Air21 Express 121-112 in the opener of the 2007-08 PBA Conference.

Absent from the previous conference to take part of the RP team, Danny Seigle and Dondon Hontiveros made their presence felt as they exploded with 28 and 15 point respectively.

Well, obviously the wining team carries much experience so the outcome is not really a shocker.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

But anyway, it’s great to watchtwo of my favorite cagers, Seigle and Fonacier play in the same team. Magnolia for the championship. biased! Lol.

UAAP 70 champs

They’re back and they’re number one.

Congratulations to the DLSU Green Archers for winning the UAAP 70 senior men’s basketball championship!

I was disappointed with UE’s performance. What happened to them? I was expecting a close and exciting fight. Well, 14-0 is nothing if you won’t win the championship right?

Anyway, congrats again to the Archers! They’re back.

It was a great season. Proves that power and confidence without passion can’t win you the gold. I was really disappointed with the game. Sigh.

Anyway. Can’t wait for next year. and of course, PBA starts soon!!

Until then, I’m on blog leave.

Back to work!!

End of the Warrior’s luck?

Not only did the DLSU Green Archers defeated their rivals the Ateneo Blue Eagles to get to the finals, but they also got the finals game 1 against the powerhouse UE Red Warriors.

Yeah, this post is a bit too late. And I didn’t get to watch game 1 because I already have work. Anyway, I’m rooting for the Archers (I’ve always been an Archer fan anyway.).

And yeah, I guess I can’t give any comment whatsoever. Lol.

So is will the powerhouse house team finally run out of strength and get slammed by the team who was absent last season? The plot thickens. A good reason to love basketball eh?

Eagles end Tigers title bid

The Ateneo Blue Eagles finally got back at the team who defeated them in the finals of the previous season. They were able to defeat the defending champion UST Growling Tigers to get the right to battle team no. 2 Archers.

 

That’s it for the champs. There’ll be a new champion this season.

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Sorry, don’t have the details now, the game just ended and I forgot to take it down. I’ll just edit this later.

 

Sigh.

DLSU secures 2nd spot

The Archers got the 2nd spot in the final four by striking the Eagles 70-69. They finally got their revenge after losing to their rivals twice in a row. On the other hand, the Tigers slashed the Tamaraws 80-69 in their face-off for the 4th place.

 

The Eagles and Tigers will meet on Sunday where the winner will face the Archers who hold the twice-to-beat advantage.

 

The powerhouse Warriors will have to wait to know the team who will face them on the finals.

Dynasty ended

Congratulations to the UP Pep Squad for winning the 2007 UAAP Cheer Dance Competition.

 

The group ended the 5 consecutive victories of the defending champions the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, who landed 1st place this year. Getting the 2nd place was the FEU Pep Squad.

 

The competition was tight and each group was great. Congrats again to the winners!
