2012’s PBA Commissioner’s Cup Champions!!!! BMEG Llamados!

I can’t help but post another PBA related post. I’m sorry if I’m being too much in in-your-face mode but I just haven’t been excited in sports like this for years. Yes, for sure, I also got excited for the AZKALS especially when they were just starting, but PBA will always be special! It’s one thing to be proud when you send representatives of your country to international competitions, but it’s another thing to have Filipino players play against each other! Both teams’ fans are present during the game, people of different social strata come together, united for their respective teams. I mean, it’s our version of NBA! What else is there to say, right?

Anyway, it was a good thing, I was on AM duty yesterday, so I still had time to go to church (alone) and claim my mother’s pair of pants that she had altered and watch the GAME!

I cannot exactly tell how much madness this game brought us. My sister and I were literally yelling our hearts out as we watched the game on TV, what more, should we have watched it live!

At first, I didn’t exhaust myself cheering since I was disappointed during game 6 when BMEG started out on fire, but ended up losing. So, I told myself, I should reserve all emotions for the last 2 quarters. True enough, Talk and Text was blazing. Jimmy Alapag and Larry Fonacier shared a few three pointers which kept them on lead for a few minutes (yabang eh, minutes lang pala!). Then it went down to the last few seconds of the last quarter when we thought that TnT was gonna take home the cup, but things turned around when Denzel Bowles took the game to overtime! We were on the edge of our seats and I cannot count how many argghsss and uhhhs we gave out yesterday! We were losing hope seeing even flat affect James got pissed already! I remembered this commentator saying BMEG already went too far to lose, not this time! And I heard that echoing on my mind while watching James Yap (who obviously contributed so much to reach game 7). It also made me sad seeing cheery Danica Sotto-Pingris then seated quietly this time. Ako na ang affected! But you can’t deny the fact that games likes these will always be accompanied by drama!

But, just like what I said, things turned around when the game went overtime! Bowles became UNSTOPPA-BOWLES! Every ball he fired went straight into the basket! Then BAM! 90-84, BMEG LLAMADOS wins 2012 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Championship GAME!

YAHHHHHHOOOOOOO! Again, COngratulations to BMEG: Big Game James, Unstoppa-Bowles, the Rocket-Intal, the Fireball-Urbiztondo, Pinoy Sakuragi-PingrisΒ and everyone else! Never mind James Yap’s round of afflause-deserving speech! He still is the MVP!!! I truly have respect for him na! HAHA!

Ok that’s all folks! Time to move on, back to the real world! πŸ™‚

my first PBA experience

Yesterday, my siblings (big pba fans) and I went to see the Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. We’ve been closely watching the games between Talk and Text and BMEG. Now they’ve reached game 5 (race to 4) and we just had to watch it live.

My sister couldn’t be more excited especially since Game 4 was full of action (literally). So we expected that Game 5 was even more exciting.

And it really was! The first few points made by each team got everyone cheering, even us. I can get really cheery and noisy and wild when it comes to watching games live, but I was more fun back in high school. I was a bit mellow last night but still, I made a few howls and hooots! Nakakahawa kasi ang energy ng BMEG fans eh!

Watching this made me relive my college UAAP days. The crowd, the drums, the balloons, the throwing of foul but funny retorts of fans against each other—everything was exactly the same!

Unforgettable moments of the game were: 1) James Yap’s awe-striking 3-pointer shots, 2)Jared Dillinger’s hilarious dives 3) The ala angry birds halftime t-shirt giveaway 4) the surprising Gerald Anderson face of the game moment

Anyway, I couldn’t be happier with how the game ended 82-66! It was worth my baon and the rush after my duty!

Jus-just in time after work and Kat-wala lang vacay mode haha!
