Incredibly Belated PBA Rookie Biometrics Observations

This is an astoundingly belated post but am writing here anyway the Biometrics results of the recent PBA rookie draftees. Which is another way of saying I found the Excel file they sent me when I was cleaning up old files on my PC and thought three things: 1. ‘why the hell didn’t I post that?‘ 2.’this would do good SEO’ and 3.’why is there no date of birth?

Anyway here it is.

Nostalgia Alert: PBA Retro Jerseys At Robinsons

I caught this ‘bazaar’ on its last day by accident a few weeks back at Rob Manila. It was supposed to be the last day and they were just pulling out jerseys and shorts from boxes.

48 Out Of 85 People Think 'Niloloko Lang Tayo Ng PBA'

Almost forgot to write about this. I ran a poll from Aug. 23 to Oct. 4, 2011, a total of 35 days, asking the ff.:

Results herewith:

  • ‘Oo Kalokohan na yan’ got 56% or 48 votes.
  • ‘Hindi, maayos naman’ got 28% or 24 votes.
  • ‘Hindi ako sigurado’ got 16% or 13 votes.

No Respect

You see comments like these on the ‘net all the time, and for the most part its harmless, right? I mean it’s just some idiot ranting on and besides, he’s entitled to that. If he feels that way, after much thorough research and study I’m sure, then that’s that.

Then I read Chris Tiu’s blog the other day, re the time they played the NBA Selection a few weeks ago:

The Day I Met The Quick Brown Fox (Online)

Here’s what happened. So I saw Ricky Brown’s FB page the other day (yes, THE Ricardo Brown aka The Quick Brown Fox) and I ‘friended him’. I didn’t expect much of it of course. Lots of celebs use their names as brands on FB nowadays and are usually just corporate facades meant to inform their legions of followers with updates of what they’re doing and such.

Until a few minutes later I got a MESSAGE FROM THE MAN HIMSELF.

Comic Sans Alert!

You know, I never really liked Comic Sans, but I didn’t realize people actually cared enough to make bancomicsans.com, which I learned about a while ago and states in its Manifesto:

We are summoning forth the proletariat around the globe to aid us in this revolution. We call on the common man to rise up in revolt against this evil of typographical ignorance. We believe in the gospel message “ban comic sans.” It shall be salvation to all who are literate. By banding together to eradicate this font from the face of the earth we strive to ensure that future generations will be liberated from this epidemic and never suffer this scourge that is the plague of our time.

Wow. So Ok then:

SMB and Air21 Official Statements + My Half Heartedly Formed Opinion

Today I will pretend to care about the PBA a little bit: SMB and Air21 recently exchanged key players, which is fine and didn’t really impress upon me at all until I read that in order for a trade to go through in the PBA, it’d have to pass the OK of the commissioner, at which point suddenly I am piqued.

But first, the official statements, starting with SMB Coach Ato Agustin, reading like it was written by Ato Agustin:

This is the right time to rebuild the San Miguel Beer Team. So with this in mind, the trade with Air 21 Express will be the important first step for us to ensure the continuing success of the San Miguel Beer franchise. Although this trade will not be a quick fix for the team, we believe that Rabeh Al Hussaini, Nonoy Baclao and RJ Guevarra will slowly but surely be molded into the San Miguel system. It will be very hard and with a heavy heart for us to part ways with Danny Seigle, Dorian Pena, Dondon Hontiveros and Paul Artadi, who have contributed immensely to our previous championships. But this sacrifice will not only benefit San Miguel and Air 21 but also their respective careers.

Quick Game 5 Notes

Ho hum game for the most part. TnT blasted SMB out of the water the way they really should because they have better depth, and better depth means better plays, better execution, more chances to do it right and less chances to screw up etc. etc.

But what I couldn’t help noticing was.. well, here’s a screenshot of what I was feeling at the time:

Frankly, it’s ok if he does it just a little bit. But he went on and on during the action and I just got to a point where I couldn’t help screaming STFU!!!.

What I remember most from Game 6

Here’s a quick post to talk about what struck me most re SMB’s 89-86 win over Ginebra tonight.

SMB’s offensive resilience – Less than a minute left, Coach Agustin designed a very specific offensive set which quickly went awry after Ginebra suddenly sprang a zone. At situations like that, every player involved had their thoughts still set on executing the planned play, so when the situation suddenly turns different a lot of teams would fall apart in some way, usually via some superstar player deciding to take matters into his own hands. Instead they executed a perfect passing play which left Cabagnot open at the left wing for one of his, ho-hum, dagger threes (at least I think it was a three. I may be mistaken).

That, ladies and gents, is teamwork and basketball smarts at work. Not only did one or two players ‘get it’, but all of them came into position to set Cabagnot up. The way to beat a zone is by outside shooting so they figured out a way to get a guard free to take that shot, and shoot he did.
