tagay sa buong barangay!!!

oh ang ganda ng aking umaga,
feeling ko, ako’y dalagang-dalaga…
sa barangay ng magkakabarkada
buong bansa’y magkakakilala
dumadagundong ang sigaw ng masa

….. NG MAGING CHAMPION ANG GINEBRA!!!

Nakamit ng Ginebra ang kanilang 8th crown, at naging PBA Fiesta Conference Champion 2007-2008 in game 7 of the series laban sa Air 21 Express.

Despite the injuries hurting them since game 1, Brgy. Ginebra proved why they are called the “never-say-die” team, witnessed by around 23,000 fans at the Big Dome.

Thanks for the help of the best import of the conference, Chris Alexander, The Great! (we’ll miss you) and congratulations Eric Menk and Ronald Tubid for bagging the FInals MVP! (Menk played like he’s on his twenties πŸ˜‰ )

heart vs hunger

pasensya na pero tungkol pa rin sa ginebra to, hahaha…

ngayon ang game 7, sudden death, do or die for Brgy. Ginebra vs Air 21… ngayong gabi ang paghuhukom!

sino ang magwawagi? ang Brgy. Ginebra na nagsimula sa ibaba ng standing at umarangkada hanggang umabot ng finals o ang Air 21 na lumalaban para sa kanilang unang kampeonato para sa kanilang franchise history?

Some messages from both teams:

“I WILL NOT GO HOME W/O A CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY, I LOVE THIS TEAM & I LOVE THE FANS” — chris alexander (bgk import)Β  — these words are really touching 😦 kakaiyak

Imagine, we lost Steven Thomas (on fouls) with over five minutes left to play and we’re beaten by only five. That says a lot that we really can compete,”Β  — bo perasol (air 21 coach)Β  — Imagine, hindi naglalaro si jj helterbrand dahil injured? injured si caguioa, si artadi, si tubid… tapos, na fouled out lang ang import nyo, ganyan na ang reaction mo? hahaha…

β€œYou just leave it to the spirit of the Barangay Ginebra,” coach Jong Uichico said. β€œWe are walking wounded, but the heart is still there. It is the only thing that is keeping us in the series. Good things happen off of that.” — the ever soft-spoken BGK coach

last one from Bo Perasol….Β  “(Ginebra) did nothing special to beat us. We lost because we gave them a lot of second chance points and we made a lot of poor shot selections,” Perasol explained. β€œEven if we lost Steven (Thomas), we just lost by five, and that says a lot of how well we can play this team,” he added. β€œThey (Express) would have to forget what happened tonight because there was really nothing special there — Coach, konting humility naman dyan, hahaha…

ang barangay royal run

Sino bang mag-aakala na ang Ginebra ko ay aabot ng finals, (syempre, isa ako sa naniwala πŸ˜› )? Nag-umpisa sila ng 0-5 bago makabuslo ng isang panalo laban sa Purefoods. Naka-tatlong palit ng import hanggang mahanap nila ang sakto sa kanila. Salamat sa tulong ni Cris Alexander!

Dumating din si Junthy Valenzuela kapalit ng future draft picks, dati ayoko sa kanya pero ngayon lab na lab na sya ng barangay. Na-injure si Ronald Tubid pero nag step-up naman si Paul Artadi.

Mula June 1, 2008 hanggang August 7, 2008, hindi natalo ang Ginebra ko. 13 games winning streak, sinong hindi mamamangha dun? Naipanalo nila ang rest of the games ng 2nd round of elimination, na-sweep ang Quarterfinals vs Sta. Lucia, Na-sweep ang Semifinals vs Redbull, at naipanalo ang Finals game 1 vs Air 21. Sa pangunguna ng The Fast and The Furious.

Biyernes, August 8, 2008, Finals game 2, natambakan ang barangay ko ng bonggang-bongga! Na-injure pa si Jayjay Helterbrand (The Fast), at posibleng hindi na makabalik para sa Finals. Tanggap ko na eh, pumatas lang ang series sa 1-1. Pero kahapon, August 10, 2008….. talo na naman… 😦

2-1 ang series, in favor of Air 21… Guguho na naman ba ang pangarap ng buong barangay o magpapatuloy ang royal run…???

barangay ginebra diehard

sino? ako? hindi ah πŸ˜›

1. umiiyak ako pag talo (when i was younger), ngayon, mangilid-ngilid na lang luha ko. (matured na ko eh.)

2. todo cheer ako kahit sa tv lang ako nanunuod at tipong nagugulat mga kapit-bahay pag sumisigaw ako pag naka-shoot, kala nila may emergency sa bahay. … wag ka, nag-cha-chant pa ko ng GI-NE-BRA sa tapat ng tv… lintek yan Grin

3. ang sakit ng kamay ko after watching the game, todo palakpak kasi ako everytime maka-shoot at maganda ang play nila.

4. dasal ako ng dasal pag close games, tipong nag-sisign of the cross pa ako pag na-shoot ang bola at sabay sambit ng “Salamat po Diyos ko” .

5. todo tanggol sa team sa mga nanunukso, kantiin mo na lahat, wag lang ginebra ko.

6. apektado buong araw ko pag natatalo, feeling ko loser talaga ako Grin

7. nakapanood ako ng live kahit sang venue pa yan, araneta, cuneta at ynares hanggang sa dubai at walang pakealam sa pag-cheer kahit nasa tabi ko ay fan ng ibang team…

8. kinikilabutan ako pag pinapakinggan ko ang mga kanta ni gary granada, super proud ako at kinakanta ko pa mga kantang yan… hahahaha.

iba talaga pag kabarangay ka, walang sasaya pa sa mga panalo ng ginebra at walang lulungkot pag sila nama’y natatalo… parte na ng buhay ng kabarangay ang ginebra team…

kabarangay ako sa puso’t isipan…

ginebra won again

BARANGAY GINEBRA TURNS BACK PUREFOODS

Helterbrand, Tubid, Alexander shine anew in Caguioa’s absence

Napakasarap ng pakiramdam pag nanalo ang ginebra, alam ko buong barangay ang nakakaramdam nito, hindi lamang ako. Namnamin ang saya at ligaya… GINEBRA! GINEBRA! Thanks to jj, ronald, junthy and to their prolific import, chris alexander. Even Mark Caguioa was sidelined due to injury, they still managed to win, hep hep! 6-8 na standing nila, hehehe… they started slow this confy, pero bumabawi na sila, sana magtuloy-tuloy na, hanggang sa championship (bakit hindi?).

O kay ganda ng aking umaga
Feeling ko wala akong asawa
At ang dati kong boyfriend ay hiwalay na
PAGNANANALO ANG GINEBRA
