A Yellow Afternoon

Yesterday, the fiance together with our friends went to watch the Ateneo-La Salle game at Araneta Coliseum. Proud of Pammy for wearing yellow despite saying that it's not her color :) The Ateneo-LaSalle rivalry is undoubtedly the fiercest match-up in UAAP history (University Atheletic Association of the Philippines). It has made grown men tear up, swear like a sailor and frantically cheer like a girl. It's always a sea of green and blue. And it is always a 50-50 audience sharing. Sunday's game marked a different occasion though. In memory of Former Pres. Cory Aquino both school decided to don on their chic-est and yellow-est shirts. The LaSalle players even had yellow shoelaces on. How cool is that!

It was an exciting game, all four quarters of it plus OT. Somebody texted Jeanie with the game's odds and LaSalle was the overwhelming underdog. DLSU at +11, OUCH! Not that I wasn't loyal to my alma mater but we had very low expectations coming into the game. But as luck would have it, it turned out to be a nail biter until the very end (like milli second end!). I'm planning to sit out their next game. Somehow my dear LaSallians always end up losing when I watch live. (ahem, that should go to my friend as well)

Ateneo won by the way 76-72. Congrats to my Atenean friends and (begrudgingly) to my die-hard brother, who was suspiciously cheerful waiting for me at the sala last night.
