He’s a Kiefer – he’s the man among the boys. His set skills seem to be way advanced compared to everyone else’s. He reminds me of Mike Cortez and LA Tenorio during their UAAP time where they dominated the college games like a pro. Hands down the MVP of this series. I wish it translates to a great pro career for him. Kiefer, keep it up. You the man!

You’re the norMan! – and talking about being THE man, Norman Black should be enshrined right away to the basketball hall of fame, now. He’s born to be a basketball star. He was a great player and an even greater coach. It’s just inspiring to see a guy so humble yet have achieved so much on his chosen profession. More blessings to you, sir.

Little Piece of Heaven – hearing the cheers from the pep squad and of course from the supporters. Those chants are just awesome. It sends chills hearing 10,000 strong chanting the same cheers at the same time. I may not be there in the venue right now but i definitely know the feeling. I can still remember how it feels like being there, shouting my lungs out, doing the crazy steps memorizing the catchy lyrics all for the love of the game and team spirit.

In Good Hands – whatever happens to these two teams after this game (it’s the last 2 minutes by the way, Ateneo up by a field goal), both teams are in good hands. I can see Abdul improving his game for the next couple of years and really dominating it, Justin Chua being the man next year or so, Jeric Teng winning MVP honors before his time is done in the collegiate ranks. I may have missed a couple of more names but really they should be alright.

What Now? – I don’t want to spoil Ateneo’s great run but I’m sure the question that stands out right now would be what happens next? I know, I know. They should be just celebrating right now and not think of  anything else. I should be ashamed of myself for not staying in the now right? But admit it or not, you gotta be thinking what happens after all this? Their main guys will be gone, the coach will be gone, MVP is gone. Alright sorry. Congratulations Ateneo. You deserve it. Enjoy the championship, Blue Eagles.
