Two weeks ago, the search is on na. Bilang Jeric and I are busy busyhan (at my halong katamaran), wala tlga kameng effort aside sa magsearch sa google ng mga ngbbenta ng tickets. (come on, wala nga kameng time mgkita, mgtiticket hunt pba kme?) Well, our friends are really the ones who are more reliable on this. Utusan ba ang PA, drivers, and other staffs ng ofc mo just to round the UP and NU area to find some tickets. (UP and NU will play first before the main event) Malay mo may tickets dun dahil UST claims, este UP claims naman na evenly distributed ang tickets. Unfortunately, WALANG TICKETS! We need 8 pa naman.
Came Saturday july 5 (haberdey Aina!), wala pa dn tkets. So it is really scheduled that we'll search the UP, NU, DLSU, and ADMU area, plus Araneta Center. Kaso lang Jeric and I have this wedding to attend to (kahit wala kong tulog). It was vince's and rhia's wedding - mga college friends nia. We enjoyed the wedding kc the bride is really jolly- one cool enjoying stressfree bride! That's the wedding should be, enjoyable!
Moving on, our friends decided to go to Taft first. Well, di sila ng nabigo. malayo palang, na-sense na ng radar nila na scalpers ang mga nakatayo dun. (fyi, last year dito din kc nakabili ng tickets para sa 5 arneyo lasalle games). tickets are priced at P75, but mbibili mo lang un sa tumataginting na P450 each! So bale times 6 sa original price. If you want special ring side tickets, mghanda ka ng 3500-5000! Well last year, P50 lang ang price pero nabili namen un ng P800 each! SERIOUSLY!
And i quote the scalpers from taft:
"WE ARE THE LA SALLE GREEN SCALPERS!"
At least tapos na problema, my tickets na.. See you on Sunday! ;)
.::. 06.july.2008 Dahil di pa ko natutulog pinayagan nila kong late na dumating. Usually kc upper A and B are free seating lang. So unahan tlga. Dapat first game palang my nakareserve kanang seats. Dat's all the sacrifices we all undergo para lang sa arneyo games. I remmber 2 years ago, nakapila kame sa araneta ng 8AM para makabili ng tickets ng UST-ATENEO finals game. Worse is Ateneo lost dat day, and that championship as well. Ganun tlga!
I arrived at 3:30 na yata, pero sila 11.30 pa lang andun na. Effort dba? Mga bayani yan ng group namen. Sinundo ako ni Jeric sa entrance and he saw an Accenture booth. Free photo daw. Game! (dahil he works for accenture di na cia pina-sign up. sbe ko naman, i worked for canon - gamit nilang camera and selphy, wala daw kinalaman un!) hahaha
Finally, natapos din ang first game. Blue babble started to bang the drums. I miss that sound!!! And i miss the crowd. Ansarap sa tenga ng ONE BIG FIGHT! The green gang started cheering na din with the usual D-LS-U Animo Lasalle! Namiss ko din yan. This is gonna be fun!
Tpos my bisita palang NBA star, Agent Zero so mejo nadelay ang game. And after that, Manny Pacquiao showed up to receive his recognition. Standing ovation inferness. The crowd truly appreciates and recognizes his achievements. Galing mo Manny! Peborit namen ni dren ung mga winning interbyus mo! Manny turned to Lasalle crowd and said GoodLuck, then turned to Arneyo crowd and said Goodluck too!
Akala namen game na, SUS, dameng kaartehan.. Delayed na maciado ang game. baka di alam ng officals na the crowd wants nothing but the game. So everybody's cheering "GAME NA GAME NA!"
Start ng game, free throw agad??!! lahat kme surprised! Wala pang jumpball tapos free throw agad. Hay nako, we may be seated at the blue side but all of us surely wants a fair game.
Well the game continued finally. I miss the players, andameng bago. pati sa Lasalle side. Honestly, i wasnt expecting that Ateneo will win. I beliv mas malakas pa dn Lasalle. But luckily, Ateneo won! Pray hard. It works! ;)
We ate dinner first and celebrated sa Taft area! hahaha See you on sunday, Ateneo vs UE na.. Yare!
AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM!
