Keep The Faith! Nagsisimula Pa Lang Ang Laban!

I have been closely monitoring blogs, article news, writeups in the past few days, especially after the historical Quarterfinals Series where Ginebra dethroned Talk N Text last February 7, 2009.

Sabi ng mayabang kong katext (kilala mo na kung sino ka), "O, arangkada ng Ginebra walang nakaawat o! 6th man ang crowd e, sira ang laro ng Walk N Text, magtambol na lang sila!" Sabi pa ng isa, "O, di pa 100% ang Fast and the Furious nyan ha!" And there would be endless stories to share, PAG NANANALO ANG GINEBRA. True! At pag talo? Walang naguusap sa facebook, busy ang status ng mga online sa ym, walang nagti-tweet, at aminin nyo, walang naghahapunan. Even on papers! Walang bumibili ng dyaryo, walang masulat, hmmn, tanong ko yan kahapon e. Dahil ba, yung mga writers, kabarangay din? Ü

And last Wednesday, after 5 grueling games, our beloved Barangay Ginebra Kings has been defeated by the Alaska Aces. Ouch! It's really painful not to see them win but it's much painful to see them fight eventhough you see them battered by their own weak bodies. Hindi na Alaska ang kalaban nila kundi sarili nila. Kita yung pagod sa kanila, esp kay Eric who got himself re-injured, pulled groin, then Celino, JC, Willie, Cyrus, Ronald, Enrico, lahat sila. But you know, this is when WE LOVE OUR TEAM THE MOST. Pag nadedehado. Because we know, this is when we are stronger, this is when we roar louder, this is when we stand up, to fight, to continue the battle. Nagsisimula pa lang ang laban. And knowing Ginebra, babawi kami, lalaban kami.

And before I end this entry, my eyes now swelling with mist, or, is it tears? Uhm. Well, i just can't help smiling every time i would remember Mark's performance last game. 23pts and he's still not 100% okay. And Kevyn White who fired two three-points! I just go speechless.

So, kabarangay, pagkatapos mong basahin to, offer a short prayer, as always, lagi nating ginagawa to, pagpray natin ang team.

Go ginebra! Fight, ginebra, fight! We never say die!

Hello Semis!

It has always been hard when you have an unhealthy lineup. Most especially when your team is Caguioa-less and Helterbrand-less and hefty Junthy Valenzuela is sidelined by an injury. Good thing it's not always just about having healthy and fit players, but sometimes, you know, having an ALLY is really what everthing is all about. If you keep on believing in Him, if you never lose your faith, if you never say die.. If, everything seems to be hopeless but you just keep your faith, you keep your fingers crossed, you keep cheering and fighting for what you believe in, then, there's a prize. And that is what we, the fans of the most popular team in town is holding on to. We started strong, first quarter of the deciding Quarterfinals Game 5 match versus Talk N Text Tropang Texters, the players never lose their focus on their gameplan, they keep their presence of mind. Each rebound means everything. Every basket attempt is like one precious ball of prophecy. Until the last 2 minutes of the game, the GinKings keep their composure, they played with their hearts, they played it big. And that is why from 0-1, 0-2, 1-2, 2-2, we now move forward to Semifinals of the 2010 KFC-PBA Philippine Cup. Good job JC Intal, Erik Menk, Sunday Salvacion, Ronald Tubid, Enrico Villanueva, Willie Wilson, Kevyn White, Celino Cruz, Billy Mamaril, Rich Alvarez, Doug Kramer, Cyrus Baguio! We are truly proud of you!

Hello Semis! The GinKings, healthy or not, will face the challenges with a big heart.
