“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.” - My Chemical Romance statement when they announced their disbandment.
Yeah, right. I know it’s way too late to post about MCR, but I just felt like doing it. After the lyrics of Helena just popped in my head for no reason at all. It’s crazy. -_-
I’m not a fan of theirs, I don’t even know someone from the band (I can just recognize the face of their vocalist.) but I know a few songs (The Black Parade, Helena, Famous Last Words, I Don’t Love You, Na Na Na, Planetary, Sing, The Ghost of you and of course, my favorite Disenchanted). Songs that anyone relate to, because of the emotions and the lyrics that get stuck inside your head.
Seeing a band fall apart can break hearts, whether you are a fan or not. Just like when Eraserheads separated ways, I have never been their fan, but I’m a fan of their music, and because of that it gave me a little pain, even though back then, I was just 5 years old.
All I know is that people live and die, but music stays forever. The music of MCR will always and forever be remembered.

I’m elated. I’m in a state of euphoria. I’m on the verge of tears.
This win is just so huge. Huge as in 18 points up. Just wow. Larry Fonacier made a really big difference this evening. The moment he said they were desperate of winning, it makes me feel so proud to be a fan of his team. The Baby-faced Assassin and the rest of the guys saw the loss of some of their key players as inspiration and motivation. This is also the first time I saw Fonacier get whistled for a technical foul, you can just see how he’s in it to win it.
Tony Mitchell is a good player after all. He handles the ball really well, and he can indeed play a bunch of positions. He played a bit of a point guard a while ago, he’s so athletic, he’s a scorer, and just like what Sir Mico Halili said, he’s so talkative. I hope he can control himself in their next games. I don’t want another Balkman. Hahaha.
What made them emerge is their bench players - Pamboy Raymundo, Aaron Aban, John Ferriols, Rich Alvarez, Bambam Gamalinda - they all handled their minutes convincingly. Ali Peek has shown awesome defense, his offense also played a huge role. Ryan Reyes also played nice. Harvey Carey did well on defense, Rabeh Al-Hussaini was hardly used, but he gave some contributions too (like getting called for an F1. Kidding! :D)
RDO and Jayson Castro, as I have said earlier, always do their best whenever they are on the court. Jimmy Alapag may not be in uniform, but he continues to motivate his teammates, which he does best.
But overall, who we need to give a salute to is none other than Coach Norman Black, as the commentators said, he is just… well… Norman Black. Having him as a coach doesn’t only make you better, he gives out the best in you - moreover, the best for his team. Kudos to you, Mr. 100%!
Feeling ko nga nabasa nila ‘yung blog post ko eh. Ginawa kasi nila ‘yung sinabi ko rito. Hahaha. Pagbigyan ang ambisyosa. :D
Teamwork and composure. 65 rebounds. Amazing field goal shooting. Admirable defense. I love it! :)
It hurts to see Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters like this. This is just crazy. This breaks my heart.
They’ve been struggling all conference long. They lost key players (Kelly Williams and Jared Dillinger), and this night, another one is not gonna see action, by the name of Jimmy Alapag. Ryan Reyes and Ali Peek are going to play, but they are not 100%.
To be completely honest, I am not expecting Talk ‘N Text to bag this game, but of course they still can. Ranidel de Ocampo and Jayson Castro always play their best, Harvey Carey is an effective sixth man, as well as Aaron Aban. But the rest of the guys should step up, especially Pamboy Raymundo, who’s going to fill in the PG spot when Castro needs rest. Larry Fonacier had a great game versus the PBA All-Stars last Sunday, I hope he does the same.
Another thing that makes me worry about tonight’s game is that they have a new import by the name of Tony Mitchell who’s 6’5. I’m not questioning his skills or whatsoever, but who’ll guard Vernon Macklin now that Jerome Jordan is out? Rabeh Al-Hussaini doesn’t seem to be a good fit for the role (Game 1, remember?). Ranidel de Ocampo had limited minutes last Game 2 because of being foul troubled; and V-Mack is very aggressive, this import can give him a hard time.
Jimmy makes the biggest difference whenever he plays. From scoring to assists to leadership skills… he’s such a huge loss. If only JD’s there, it wouldn’t be as hard to imagine TNT without the Mighty Mouse, ‘cause he can also play the point.
The key for TNT to win this game is to go strong to the basket, stay aggressive and use their free throw advantage over Ginebra. Shoot well from the perimeter and have their defense going. Provide toughness and of course, most importantly, get the boards.
Thinking, Ginebra has a better look coming into this game, they can capitalize because of TNT’s injuries, they have taller forwards, they have a good import and they just have this mammoth crowd whenever, wherever. I’m not saying it’ll make TNT drop their shoulders, but this gives BGSM the confidence.
Whatever happens, I’m a TNT fan at heart.
Step up. Keep the faith. Go, fight, win.
