San Antonio Spurs

2 wins. 4 losses.

The San Antonio Spurs lost to the OKC Thunder in Game 6 of the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Heartbreaking. Again. I still recall how we lost the 2013 NBA Championships back then against the Miami Heat. 2012 we lost against the OKC Thunder too. Then we lost to the LA Clippers last year. I thought this will be OUR YEAR for the 6th NBA Championship Ring… but no.

Destiny has other plans for us, for our team. Aldridge is here, Kawhi is still young, Danny Green can still improve but Manu and Timmy might not be back again next year. The GSW will still brag about being the might-be-Champions. I hope they lose against the Cavs. I hope the Thunder lose against the GSW. I hope… I hope TD, Manu and TP can still one more ring. Together.

I am angry at the results of the Philippine Vice President results. I am so darn tired of my work. I hate traveling back and forth from the house to the office every night. Then I came home with the OKC on a 20+ points lead against my SAS!? Where is justice in there?!

Forgive me for my rants. I am a BIG San Antonio Spurs fan. I wrote this article back in 2013 with tears and I am really heartbroken. Now, I am writing this piece with another heartache and tears, and with Jack Daniels. I can’t believe they lost just like that. It’s really hard for me to swallow this loss. 2013 was a heartbreaking loss… and then this one.

Part to blame are the NBA Referees who are not calling the needed calls and making the calls on miscues. But as irritating as it may, SAS never put the blame on them. There was even a scene where Kawhi questioned a ref’s call! KAWHI QUESTIONED A REF! How often do we see Kawhi question a call?

TD, TP and Manu might not come back next year. Age has caught up. Fathertime won’t and can’t be denied anymore. We need young ones to carry the tradition and the torch. We need Danny Green to improve more and more. Kawhi Leonard to be fiercer and be more than what he is now. We need to have LaMarcus Aldridge develop into the player that he is needed to be, tough.

I am still and will always be a San Antonio Spurs fan. Win or lose. My loyalty is theirs alone. SAS wins with grace, and losses with class and dignity.

to Tim Duncan (21), Tony Parker (9) and Manu Ginobili (20), if this should be your last, SALAMAT NG MARAMI.

[ Stupid Noynoy calls for a PEOPLE POWER?! ]

According to a one newspaper report quoted Aquino as saying that only fraud could make him lose the elections, and that if the people’s will is thwarted, they could take to the streets. Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales was a bit frustrated and gave warnings of people power if the elections are wracked by fraud are “irresponsible” and “crazy, crazy, crazy”.

Rosales said he has not heard anybody make these statements, but he disagreed with such a view.

“I did not hear that but if anyone said that, that is [an] irresponsible statement,” he told reporters in an interview.

He said if there was a basis to call for people power, he was not averse to it, but he indicated that he saw no reason to call for any mass movement of people.

He said the situation in 1986, when Filipinos turned up in massive numbers to oust a dictator, was different from the country’s current condition.

“Why inject that, why infuse that into the present situation?” he said. “Remember at that time there was a dictator and the dictator was there with no real credible election, only referendum, and it was as long as 20 years. Good heavens. Do you repeat that? No, come on, let’s use our head; these are two different things.”

He added that anybody in the place of the late Jaime Cardinal Sin, who supported the 1986 revolt, would have to do what he did. But he said that at that time, there were “unimaginable things,” such as the fact that there had been no credible elections for 20 years.

“Come on, come on, that’s just crazy, crazy, crazy. These are two different things. That’s why whoever said that, that’s a little different. Whoever said that—I have never heard him—but any kind of thinking [like] that is irresponsible thinking,” he added.

Asked if he would call for people power if the elections would not be credible, he said he would not since there are legal recourses that people could take.

“No. For heaven’s sake there is the Constitution. All these are covered by provisions of the Constitution. If there are complaints, credible, you go to the Comelec, you go to Congress, because you still have that,” he said.

[ Willie Revillame for Senator!?!?! ]

while i was so frustrated and so undecided, i heard on the news that Sen. Manny Villar said that “Willie (Revillame is “QUALIFIED” to be a Senator of this country?!”).

here is the complete i found at abs-cbnnews.com:

“MANILA – The Nacionalista Party (NP) will reserve a slot in its senatorial ticket for Wowowee host Willie Revillame if he decides to run for the Senate. In a press conference on Friday, Senator Manuel Villar, president of the NP, said that if Revillame is willing to run for the Senate, he will reserve a slot for him. “Oo, naman, very qualified naman si Willie, wala naman akong nakikitang problema kay Willie,” Villar said. “Yun ay isang bagay na dapat niyang pagisipan.” Villar visited Revillame in Tagaytay after he found out about the controversy involving Revillame’s move to cut the live streaming of the late President Corazon Aquino’s August 3 procession which was being shown simultaneously on Wowowee through an inset video. Revillame’s move irked many viewers and prompted him to go on indefinite leave from his popular entertainment show. Nearly 50,000 have expressed support for an online petition seeking Revillame’s ouster from Wowowee. Villar said that although he didn’t get to watch that controversial Wowowee episode, he nonetheless wants to express his support for the popular host. He said Revillame can play a big role in strengthening the NP, the country’s oldest political party which Villar is rebuilding following years of poor party politics under its former leaders. ABS-CBN News tried to reach Revillame for comment, but he declined to answer his phone, as of posting.”

my gulay, what will happen to this country if someone like Willie Revillame will sit as a Senator? i mean, he has this rudeness on tv, he has a bad mouth, a cry-baby, and he’s already someone not even worthy to have a tv show and Manny Villar is thinking of taking him in to be a Senator!? what’s he up to?! popularity?!

and here’s more, an online petition calling for Revillame’s ouster has gathered nearly 50,000 signatures already; the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board has filed a complaint and called for the preventive suspension of Revillame; Facebook users have launched the Anti Willie Revillame Movement Facebook Group; and different organizations like the Alyansa ng Filipinong Mamamahayag have issued statements against Revillame, and somehow all this convinced Villar that Revillame should run for senator?
