Saturday's a rest day. No Gilas game. Some wives (or husbands perhaps) were smiling. Their diehard Gilas fan spouses were in their normal selves. Hindi na nagmamadali. At medyo nakakausap na ng mabuti pagkatapos ng huling dalawang tambak na panalo natin sa Hongkong at Kuwait. Sana natuloy na yung mga naunsyaming date nung Friday. And hopefully nag-resume momentarily yung mga lovelife ng ilan.
It’s the time of the year again. When all Pinoy basketball fans from the world over get excited and glued to their televisions, laptops and smartphones. FIBA Asia is here. And the prize at stake is a solitary Olympic spot next year in Brazil.
Are we surprised? Maybe not. Yung iba, siyempre hoping na napasama yung mga manok nila. Well, of course Jordan Clarkson could've been the surprise of all surprises had he made it to the Final 12.
So, kaya ba?
Pretty close. Sounds like “Galvanized Iron” naman diba. Yero. Matibay. Maingay kapag pinukpok. Nakakatakot kapag nilipad at pumiglas sa bubong lalu kapag may bagyo. Aba’y umiwas ka na. Kung hindi, yari ka.
