The day wouldn’t have let itself become too dreadful for me as I was still able to celebrate even after defeat.
So a couple of bad incidents and blunders shattered our dreams of becoming champions of COC. First was the shortage of players, then the ineligibility of one of our guards and of course the Jer sustaining a pretty deep boxer’s cut after a clash of heads to rule him out of play.
We managed still to keep it close but a couple of calls not going our way as well as botched basket attempts led to our exit for title contention. Pretty much we didn’t have anybody to blame but ourselves, and pointing fingers to the referees or commitee isn’t fair at all.
All we hope now is that all our players come out on Friday, with hearts blazing to give us at least a podium finish.
Because the game started late, and after the incident, I didn’t get the chance to go to the Hitachi event. Rather I opted yo go straight to the Manila Standard 30th anniversary party at the Passion Chinese Restaurant in Resorts World Manila.
