UP vs. DLSU
– I just wanna say a few words about UP. ABS occasionally show teasers after games with lots of flashing lights and way too much pumped up music, featuring different teams one by one with lots of interviews of coaches and players. Anyway, they got to the UP part and I was almost falling asleep, but then Woody Co said a few very insightful things. Being a Chinoy, he is very honest (Chinoys usually are, imho, quite open with whatever’s on their minds), and he said that last year, there were times when he just wanted to stop playing (in the middle of a game), pack up and go home.
He then went ahead and talked about how he sees himself not doing that anymore, being older, and part of the seniors of the team now whom the rooks and coaching staff will be looking at for support. Of course he needs to say that, being a puff piece, but it sounded to me like a boy turning into a man, and was worth hearing nonetheless.
