Mostly La Salle fans.
Mostly Ateneo fans.
Definitely Ateneo fans.
Well we lost the game. Not a huge surprise for me, to be honest. Very unfortunate that here in the Philippines, the Men's Basketball title is a lot more important than winning the Overall UAAP Championship Title (which I believe is very silly).
I was disappointed at two things, one concerning Ateneans, and the other concerning some calls made by the referees.
While going to the basketball court to perform during half-time, we had to go past the Atenean crowd. A middle-aged, slightly overweight man stood up, gestured towards us and proclaimed loudly that 'these are people with no education'. I almost LOL'd. He does not seem to realize that his actions reflect more of his character, speaking as a supposedly mature adult to students like that. Well done, Mr. Atenean. Wear your blue proudly, for I will forever wear my green just as proud.
I won't elaborate anymore. Rico Maierhoffer of the DLSU Green Archers was sent out of the game for an innocuous technical foul (which was dubious to start with), and star player JV Casio (his last year as a Green Archer) fouled out of the game (with suspiciously lame contacts dubbed as 'fouls' by the referees). Officials, we will pray for all of you to sleep well for the next few nights. The nightmares will come years later. :) Have a good life.
Thank you, JV.
It's good seeing you held your head up high, like a true Lasallian. I hope to see you more in the 9th floor gym. Do come back and coach, like Cholo. :)
