Fearless forecast: NU will not win this year.

The same story told for the past 70 years, but with a different cast.

Consider the 70th UAAP season a foresight of Hell. Ten kids in a coliseum, a ball to fight over, a color to represent and what do you know – the whole country is watching. Still we accept it as law. Basketball is as much a part of our culture as balut, gossiping, rigging elections and rallying to oust a president. Except we put pretty boys at the helm of this sport. And for what? The pride of many; the pockets of few.

This year will be no different. UP will still not win a championship, Ateneo will still look good doing it, and LaSalle will bring the most irritable taglish speaking crowd. UST will not be expected to do anything, but they will pull off some miracle that would make you wanna pray to Saint Thomas more (than Saint LaSalle). UE will still be 4th and this is still not the year for NU and Adu. Did I forget anyone? FEU or something…

The UAAP serves as a breeding ground for athletes to make money off of basketball until they’re thirty. After which they are adopted to coach, assist or do some weird thing in a company to make them come off as some successful person. Those who wanna make more out of life may even run for office, or get into TV. Basketball, Showbiz and Politics – it is as divine as God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit.

  1. aynakow!! simula nanaman ng hindi pagsipot sa mga lakad para lang makanood ng uaap 🙂

  2. Actually, the some of the schools you mentioned started in the NCAA with San Beda College. They left the league after realizing they cannot win there. Hehehe. That’s why NCAA is older.

  3. Basketball, Showbiz and Politics – it is as divine as God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit.

  4. Haha, well, there’s hope for UP now, considering the maderpaking tuition fee increase… they might use that to entice players, hehehe.
