Good riddance, Ron! The distraction is finally gone and the soap opera's over. Now to return to winning.

In other news, NCRAA men's basketball defending champion and host Emilio Aguinaldo College-Manila is suspended for the rest of the season for playing in other collegiate leagues without informing the NCRAA. Other EAC-M teams are suspended as well.


Quote of the day

I'm failing academically not because I'm dumb. It's just that I'm not grade conscious.


I'm disappointed with myself...

DLSU-D swimming intrams results:

men's 200m freestyle - DNF
men's 4x50m freestyle relay - DNF

The good side, our college won second overall using the point system (First place gets seven points, second gets six, etal).

The bad side, I didn't score any friggin' point. Go figger.

More later.


When Friday the 13th strikes...

...it strikes twice. Blame it on time zones.

Four of the three games I saw ended up as losses. That doesn't count the AFC semifinals suprise weekend. Let me count the ways.

Friday morning, Manila time, I witnessed the Spurs getting beat red and blue by the Pistons, thus enabling the 2005 NBA losers to sweep their series this season. Then, Cleveland and LeBron James lost to Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. Later that night, I saw San Miguel getting eliminated by Air 21.

Saturday morning, Manila time, Friday evening, US time, the Pacers lost to the Washington Wizards.

To cap it all off, I couldn't even complete 50 meters in the school swimming pool. And I forgot my soap in the shower. Argh!


Separation anxiety beckons

Seven months worth of uncut hair... gone!


Why did ABS-CBN stopped the airing of MGB?

Because they wanted Noli de Castro to cease supporting GMA. Get it?



I rest my case...



WWE 2006 top 10 appreciation list

1. Randy Orton (heel, SmackDown!) – no one beats the Legend Killer. His Casket Match with The Undertaker was a classic. I just wish the writers drop his dad from the storyline and let Randy grow on his own. Now that’s an interesting angle, Orton going against another legend, his own dad.

2. Batista (face, SmackDown!) – Bautista, as what Eddie Guerrero addresses him, is still on top of my list.

3. Mr. Kennedy (heel, SmackDown!) – two words: Miiiisteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer Kenneeeeeeeedyyyyyyy… Kenneeeedy!!!

4. Bobby Lashley (face, SmackDown!) – hopefully, he turns out as a better version of Shelton.

5. Kurt Angle (heel, Raw) – still the man.

6. Malena (heel, SmackDown!) – MNM is more of Malena rather than the tag team’s combined talent. She’s the hottest wrestler after Trish Stratus. Not even Stacey Kiebler could match up with her. Move over, Christy Hemme. At least, Malena knows how to wrestle.

7. Shelton Bejamin (face, Raw) – push the guy!

8. Carlito (heel, Raw) - face turn the coolest wrestler in Raw!

9. Chris Benoit (face, SmackDown!) – it’s nice to know that they still gave him another championship. But four consecutive less-than-a-minute defenses? Isn’t that more an insult than an appreciation of great talent? This might also be a sign that they are maximizing Orlando Jordan’s tv time and might be releasing him soon.

10. Gregory Helms (heel, Raw) – he has lots of upside. If only he is given a break. Maybe a heel turn would be good for him.


I just notice...

The topics that get more comments are the ones about music. What does this imply? Eh?

PBL Heroes Cup appreciation list

1. Harbour Center Portmasters – does the name Pumaren ring a bell to you? Plus they have Rico Maierhofer.

2. Rain or Shine Paintmasters – two names: Joseph Yeo and Junjun Cabatu.

3. Granny Goose Tortillos – Da Nose returns at da bench. He regained my respect after serving as UAAP and NCAA commissioner in the recent collegiate basketball season.

4. Happee-PCU Dolphins(?) – the reason they are this high is because of Joel Solis. Other than that, so what Jason Castro and Gabby Espinas?

5. Montaña Pawnshop Jewellers – Compton, perhaps?

6. Magnolia Wizards – dispose Arwind Santos and they would be higher in my list.

7. Toyota Otis-Letran Knights – who wants to cheer a team that has a monster called Mark Andaya in their roster?

8. Far Eastern Insurance Insurers – this team sucks. They are so bad they have FEU reject Jay Sierra as starting point guard and third-rate SFACS center Lawrence Bonus as starting center.


The PBA Fiesta Conference 2005-06 Appreciation list

1. Batang Red Bull Thunder – didn’t I mention in a previous entry that I am cheering for Red Bull this conference no matter how much I hate this team?

2. Alaska Aces – underachievers them lot. I’m starting to get disappointed.

3. Talk N’ Text Phone Pals – by default. Mark Cardona.

4. Purefood Chunkee Corn Beef Giants – it’s more of Jondan Salvador than James Yap or Kirby Raymundo. Koy Banal assists Ryan Gregorio on the bench.

5. Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings – The Fast and the Furious are growing on me. And oh yeah, Eric Menk’s back.

6. San Miguel Beermen – with a lineup like theirs and at the bottom of the standings, what’s up with that?

7. Air 21 Express – I may not agree with the team philosophy but they still have Renren Ritualo in their lineup.

8. Coca Cola Tigers – Coke who? Rudy Hatfield where?

9. Sta. Lucia Realtors – Alex Cabagnot, I like. Kenneth Duremdes, Marlou Aquino, and Dennis Espino, I don’t.
