Tigers choose former C's Big man as next Conference's Reinforcement

The Powerade Tigers acquire former Celtics big man Dwayne Jones. Last time I saw a Tigers/ Celtics connection, It was a guy named Tony Harris a guy who scored 105 points in a single game and led the team to multiple titles in the early 90s.

To think I used play this guy in NBA Live 2006's season mode.

a Year's anniversary of Running: Bull Run 2012

65/365 bullrun

A year ago, I started in competitive running with my first ever fun run, the Bull run 2011. I placed 55th out of 570 participants in the 3k division. A year had passed. I have participated in dozens of races, evolving to 5k,10k,15k,16k and 21k respectively.

Planning to join half marathons later in the year, I opted to join the 16k instead.

Prior to the race, I have trained continuously for this race, making sure I had least a Physical activity per day and placing more vegetables on my diet.


I luckilly arrived with time to spare on the race, good thing that it was still dark when they started the run since this meant less time to be exposed in the heat of the sunlight and more efficient running due to the lower temperature.


As expected, I started slow but finished strong, I was even surprised that I didn't have long walking breaks at the flyover en route back to bgc.

Race support was great, unlike last year. There was overflowing Pocari seat and water as bananas to boot.

In the end, the result: A new 16k PR! 2:05:35 That's about a six minute improvement over my last PR which was held at moa/roxas blvd area which had no hills, this one even had 2 flyovers to boot.

The funny thing is that my loot bag contained a 21k finisher's medal instead of a 16k. They must've ran out of 16k medals, Too late when I realized it as I was already on my way home (Medal was boxed).Anyway, it's framed now so no return, no exchange.

Rescued by Running


In most races, a sudden slowdown happens at the area where there is a hill, but the venue itself (the whole race course) was a collection of deep hills?


Last January 31, Greentennial race organizers presented "Rescue Run for Sendong" an event held in mckinley hills organized in just 9 days.  

It was only my second time at Mckinley hills. The first one was part of a 16k route for the 2011 runfest. Back then, having ran by 10 km already, It was hard doing 1 loop around the area. But now we had to do 2 loops.

Semifinals on we go


Now that the high on the historic upset win has ended, the Tigers have found themselves in a not so familiar place, a semifinals stint for the first time in half a decade. Looking at their way is the tough Elasto Painters. squad led by  its tough mentor. Coach Yeng, having coached Gary back in his Air21 days says he knows his strengths and weaknesses. Like a double edged sword, El Granada also claims his familiarity with Yeng's defensive schemes, Preparing himself with a plethora of though physical defenders Rain or Shine will unleash on him.

As much as this was billed as the  hyped matchup between the first and second picks of last year's draft, the main matchup for this would be David and Lee (No, that's not the former Knicks player), 2 main guys, fearless scorers who would carry the bulk of their team. The Painters do have the bulk when it comes to support in scoring as there are at least a few guys that can lead the team in scoring when Tondo's Angas goes out from an off night. As for the Tigers, the 2 Gilas Alumni in Lassiter and Casio would be David's Insurance Policy once he goes on an off night, the rest of the Tigers also contribute well, but in other aspects of the game.

Post Battle

Another interesting spin to this is the battle at the post. JR Quinahan, while ineffective with the tigers last year has became a legitimate post threat under coach yeng, as well as Big Belga. Together they will team up against the improved Doug Kramer, Crisano, Rommel Adducul and (according to facebook posts) Powerade's version of Sakuragi, Sean Anthony.  Once again the Tigers are under-matched on paper and would need to give it their all to neutralize the Elasto Painter's bigs.

Filling out the seats

2 new teams knocking down the 2 most popular teams of the league, the public is wondering if people will watch the series. While PBA's one game a day policy for the semis is good TV wise (all four brands placing in primetime slot). It doesn't ensure to put seats on those arenas. But seriously, 2 new, young teams eager to prove themselves and not included in the local bandwagon.

The matchup will start a couple of hours now. As I said before, most underdog upsets end their Cinderella run after upsetting the strongest team of the tournament, Powerade needs to break this spell.

Cosplay Photoshoot: Rider x Sentai x Metal Hero x Tokusatsu

What better way to cap of the year than do my Last (and First) cosplay shoot of the year. After months of talking, planning and scheduling, we were finally able to pull of an ambitous cosplay shoot. This was a welcome sigh of relief for me since 1. The genre really fits the location and 2. I'm a big toku fan myself.

56/365 accel trial

Who says cosplay is just about big boobed attention seekers? who says all heroes should wear spandex and cape with underwear sticking out of their crotches?
