I Am A Basketball Fanatic!

It’s funny to think how a mere basketball game could immensely affect my emotions. True, I love watching basketball games may it be NBA, PBA, UAAP, or NCAA. The game is doubly exciting especially so when my fave team is on the run. You can just imagine how happy I am when my team wins. It’s like I wanna throw out a real big party. And how heart breaking it is when they lose. I always see to it that I keep myself updated with my own favorite team -- their standings, schedule of games, stats, etc. I admit that it’s the only show I prefer to watch if you would let me choose one though I am also trying to enjoy watching other shows apart from watching basketball.


You could say I am a fanatic, a proud Ginebra fan at that, hehe. I still could recall, I was in college when I have erratic heartbeats whenever I watch their games without a single miss! You could attribute it to my having a big admiration to their once-small-forward player Vince Hizon, who is now happily married, poor me, hehe! Well, the feeling’s long gone as well as the man. He’s no longer part of my all-time favorite team but still, I am one of the million Ginebra fans who keeps cheering and egging them on to always keep that NEVER-SAY-DIE SPIRIT.

New players came and continued to live up to the fans’ expectations. The ball is round. They could win the championship or they could not. But still, I am hoping they have the win every game because it’s one of the things that makes me happy. Good thing they won the Championship last conference for the Fiesta Cup. I won’t mind if you think I'm too shallow. It’s always a good feeling to be true to one’s own self. And because I so love basketball, any sports gifts for my birthday will be very much appreciated ;-)
Below are some of the photos with the Ginebra players when we watched them rehearse at the City's gymnasium last year:
