NSL Championship

Hey everyone! I know this entry is one week late since we won the Nike Summer League Championship. I haven't really had time to update my blog because i'm preoccupied with school, business, training and not to mention my injuries. Yes, i have a couple of injuries that have been bothering me, from my back to my adductors, to my knees and ankles. And i frequently have to deal with that scenario because for some reason my body parts are 'made in China' as my trainers would put it, that's why i've been spending a lot of time in the Moro Lorenzo clinic lately trying to nurse my injuries. But luckily, they haven't been serious enough (knock on wood) to prevent me from training as the UAAP season is fast approaching. We play DLSU again in two weeks, July 6 if i am not mistaken! Training sessions have been really tough, with twice a day sessions during the week! I think it's paying off and I feel that I can be in my best conditioning shape in my entire life when the season begins, but we have to manage our conditioning in a way for us to maintain it throughout the season and not peak too soon.


Going back to the NSL Championship, you all know that ADIDAS has been my personal sponsor since 2003 and so with all due respect, i try not to use the word 'Nike' as much, although everyone associates our last championship with it! Despite having to undergo stretches of adversity because of losses in the FIl-Oil tournament and various injuries, we managed to stage a come-from-behind victory in the final seconds of the game. Overall, our defense tightened up and they finally started missing their shots after shooting red hot almost throughout the game. But we hung in there, kept our composure and luckily we ended up victorious. Many have congratulated me for making the final shot, but i certainly have to give credit to Coach Norman for the improvised drawn up play during the time-out (that was UE's play btw) and to my teammates who executed it perfectly despite the pressure. It was a great feeling and somehow someway during the game, i felt that the game would turn to our favor! I couldn't help but smile after the shot went through the net. I'd like to thank all the Saints and my saint relatives who guided that basketball through the net! So far my favorite Pink MiAdidas hasn't failed me yet! I only use them on selected games :) At least we ended our summer program with an exclamation point!! It was pre-examination of our team's character and the main exam will be in two weeks time. Again, thank you all for cheering and believing in the Blue Eagles :)

"So far my favorite Pink MiAdidas hasn't failed me yet!"

you are just so adorable! :P

Nica said...

By the way, I just want to know why your layout pictures here in your blogspot are pictures of you and with the UST Tigers.

I mean, pwede namang Archers, Tamarraws or Warriors. Do the pictures have significance or it's just purely coincidence?

Anyway, in case you're curious about igma.tv's Chris Tiu thread, here's the link:

Chris, as a former Ateneo UAAP athlete myself, I wouldn't dare expose to the public where my injuries are. You have just exposed your weaknesses to your opponents. When I played, I never showed pain even though my ankles, knees, joints, hamstrings - you name it - were hurting. I hope they don't try to hit you in those areas; the Blue Eagles will need you all season.

Good luck in the UAAP games! ONE BIG FIGHT!

oda said...
