‘Padayon’ to pay tribute to Parangal’s decade in native dance

  SAN FRANCISCO --- When Eric Solano moved to Daly City, California from the Philippines with his family at 11 years old, he knew nothing of Philippine folk dances.   "I learned it here [in the US] with Barangay Dance Company (founded by Bonifacio Valera, Jr.). It helped me connect with my roots and be proud of being Filipino," he says.   Solano, who was born in Manila and grew up in Aklan province, went on to receive further training with Manila-based dance groupsBayanihan Dance Company and Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group.   The love for dance and pride in being Filipino swelled to a point where, ten years ago, he and 11 other dancers cofounded ...Keep on reading: ‘Padayon’ to pay tribute to Parangal’s decade in native dance.....»»

US Embassy partners with PSC for basketball clinics

A two-day goodwill basketball camp has wrapped up at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. The US Embassy, in partnership with the Philippine Sports Commission and the Alaska Aces, concluded a special series of sports clinics Tuesday in Manila. Over the course of three sessions in two days, select Jr. NBA Philippines coaches, with special guests Alana Beard and Cherokee Parks, conducted classes with a couple hundred kids, working on their basic basketball skills. Beard, a four-time WNBA All-Star, and Parks, a former NBA first-round pick, are in the country as NBA Sports Envoys to help out with various programs in coordination with the U.S. State Department Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs. "In the United States, we know that the Philippines is a big basketball country and we love it. Thank you for having us here, thank you for listening, and thank you for playing hard," Parks said. Parks, who played for a number of NBA teams including the Golden State Warriors, encouraged the kids to keep grinding even though coaches like him are not always around. "Doing it solo, that's when it's difficult but that's what makes you better if you do it by yourself. If you're doing things on your own, you motivate yourself [that's what takes you to the next level]," he added. Beard added that it's important to keep the fire burning and urged the kids to continue with their passion in basketball. "Keep loving the game, keep dreaming big and if you work hard, I promise you can achieve eveything you want in life," she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UP president’s amnesia

Your mantra for the week: "As I love myself, I find myself loving others more."   My column last week, "How to love yourself: Leave unhappy relationships," went a-trending. I presume there are many existing unhappy relationships that are being tolerated for one reason or another. In IAMISM, it's an indication that people do not love themselves enough.   Some of their excuses: "It's for the sake of the children," which is really no excuse at all, since children do know when their parents are unhappy, and would be happier if they separate and become friends instead.   "How will I support myself?" some wives worry. Which is why, in IAMISM, I recommend that b...Keep on reading: UP president’s amnesia.....»»

Hundreds gatecrash Johnny Litton’s b’day bash

Your mantra for the week: "As I uplift myself, I automatically lift up others." When we speak of love relationships, people respond instantaneously and enthusiastically. However, they always associate it with loving another person, forgetting that love should start with loving oneself. We have been taught to love others, so that turning it toward ourselves becomes difficult. Here are 7 of 21 exercises that can improve your capacity to love yourself: 1) Forgive yourself for all the so-called "mistakes" you have made, examine your heart if there are others who also need your forgiveness, and make amends. 2) Be your own best friend, be gentle and supportive of yourself by...Keep on reading: Hundreds gatecrash Johnny Litton’s b’day bash.....»»

PBA: Is Justin Brownlee the greatest Ginebra import ever?

Justin Brownlee continues to work his magic for Brgy. Ginebra. After the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup, Brownlee now has three PBA titles in four conferences. The league's Best Import is a perfect 3-for-3 in the Finals. Since 2016, Brownlee and Ginebra have enjoyed nothing but success together. If he had his way, Justin would like to keep repping the barangay forever. "I wish forever," Brownlee said when asked how long he sees himself playing for Ginebra. "But I don't know man. Just see how it goes. I hope for a long time, but I'm just gonna see how it goes," he added. Ginebra's third championship with Brownlee has to be the hardest though. The Gin Kings started the conference at 1-5, losing their first two games with Brownlee. But then Ginebra caught fire, and with Justin leading the way, the barangay made it all the way to the Finals. Once it was time to challenge the mighty Beermen, Ginebra overcame a 1-2 deficit to dethrone San Miguel. "I kept saying, the team you know, the morale of the team, everybody was staying positive, everybody was still came to work every day very hard, and everybody still sustained their confidence even though we were 1-5," Brownlee said. "It felt like, I can just remember going to practice and the confidence of the team, it felt like we were 5-0. I feel that's a big thing we had this conference, everybody just stayed positive and just kept working hard even though we were down," he added. Many people are starting to call Brownlee as the greatest Ginebra import ever, his numbers and his accomplishments certainly help him make his case. Justin is happy with that but that's not what makes him go. Tomorrow, he'll be right back to work. "Man, that's a great compliment, I definitely love the compliment. You know I don't like to think of myself like that," Brownlee said. "I just want to keep doing good, and just keep working hard, and whatever comes with that, you know I'll take it," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

HOF preview: Moss went deep to ignite Vikes, transform NFL

By Dave Campbell, Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The ball was flying down the field often for Minnesota during that drizzly night in Green Bay, and Randy Moss kept going over and past the defense to get it. Five games into his NFL career, Moss was a star. He was a revolutionary, too. There was no moment that better defined his arrival as the league's premier deep threat than that breakout prime-time performance against the two-time reigning NFC champion and bitter rival Packers. "Seeing Randall Cunningham smile, seeing him energetic," Moss said, reflecting on his five-catch, 190-yard, two-touchdown connection with Cunningham that carried the Vikings to a 37-24 victory. "It was just a great feeling." When the Vikings landed in Minnesota, his half-brother, Eric Moss, who was briefly his teammate, wondered about celebrating the big win. "I said, 'Going out? No, I want to go home,'" Moss said. Then defensive tackle John Randle tapped him on the shoulder. "Man, we're going to party tonight!" Moss said, recalling Randle's pronouncement to the rookie. "That's when I finally understood what it really meant to the guys for us to go into Lambeau and win." Twenty years later, with Moss set to enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend after being elected in his first year of eligibility, the swift, sleek and sometimes-sassy wide receiver has finally understood the depth of his impact on the game and the privilege of opportunity to serve as a celebrant of the sport. "I came into the league with, I guess, my head not really screwed on my shoulders properly," Moss said recently on a conference call with reporters. Over time, the "homebody-type guy" from tiny Rand, West Virginia, who ranks second in NFL history in touchdown receptions (156) and fourth in receiving yards (15,292), learned how to soften some of the edges he's carried since he was a kid. "I've been able to open myself up and meet more people, be able to travel the world," said Moss, who's in his third season as an ESPN analyst. "Football here in America is a very powerful sport, and just being in that gold jacket, hopefully I can just be able to continue to reach people and continue to do great things." Moss will become the 14th inductee from the Vikings, joining former teammates Cris Carter, Chris Doleman, Randall McDaniel and Randle. He'll be the 27th wide receiver enshrined at the museum in Canton, Ohio. That's a three-hour drive from his hometown, but it's sure a long way from poverty-ridden Rand where Moss and his sports-loving friends played football as frequently as they could in the heart of coal country next to the Allegheny Mountains just south of the capital city, Charleston. "It was something that just felt good. I loved to compete. I just loved going out there just doing what kids do, just getting dirty," Moss said. He landed at Marshall University after some off-the-field trouble kept him out of Florida State and Notre Dame, and he took the Thundering Herd to what was then the NCAA Division I-AA national championship in 1996. Several NFL teams remained wary of his past, but Vikings head coach Dennis Green didn't flinch when Moss was still on the board in the 1998 draft with the 21st overall pick. Moss never forgot the teams that passed on him, with especially punishing performances against Dallas, Detroit and Green Bay. "I just carried a certain chip on my shoulder because the way I grew up playing was just basically having a tough mentality," Moss said. "Crying, hurting, in pain? So what? Get up, and let's go." The Vikings finished 15-1 in 1998, infamously missing the Super Bowl by a field goal. The next draft, the Packers took cornerbacks with their first three picks. Moss never escaped his reputation as a moody player whose behavior and effort were often questioned. That led to his first departure from Minnesota, via trade to Oakland in 2005. The Raiders dealt him to New England in 2007, when the Patriots became the first 16-0 team before losing in the Super Bowl, to the New York Giants. After a rocky 2010 for Moss, including being traded by the Patriots and released by the Vikings, he took a year off. He returned in 2012 to reach one more Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers. Moss was not a particularly physical player, but for his lanky frame he had plenty of strength. His combination of height and speed was exceptional, and his instincts for the game were too. Carter taught him how to watch the video board at the Metrodome to find the ball in the air, and he had a knack for keeping his hands close enough to his body that if the defensive back in coverage had his back to the quarterback he couldn't tell when the ball was about to arrive. In an NFL Films clip that captured a sideline conversation between him and Cunningham during one game, Moss yelled, "Throw it up above his head! They can't jump with me! Golly!" For Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen, who has lived his entire life in Minnesota, was a sports-loving 8-year-old in 1998 when Moss helped lead the Vikings to what was then the NFL season scoring record with 556 points. The first team to break it was New England in 2007 with, again, Moss as the premier pass-catcher who set the all-time record that year with 23 touchdown catches. "It's fun to look back at his career and watch his old film. I love when that stuff pops up on Instagram, to be able to watch some of those old Randy plays that made me want to play this game," Thielen said. "I try to emulate him as much as I can.".....»»

PBA: Chan on ROS: 'yung Rain or Shine, I love that team'

Well, it finally happened. Jeff Chan's breakout game with Ginebra finally took place and it came against Rain or Shine of all teams. In Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals featuring the no. 1 Elasto Painters and the streaking Gin Kings, Chan had the hot hand, firing 21 points, 10 in the fourth quarter as Ginebra pulled away for the win. Chan shot 60 percent from the field and drilled three three-pointers, marking his best game in a Ginebra uniform so far. It's safe to say that the veteran sniper is getting more and more comfortable with his new team as his role gets better defined with each passing day. "Masasabi ko lang na medyo kumportable na ako, medyo nakukuha ko na pero not fully. The other day nag-usap naman kami ni coach Tim regarding sa role ko, so medyo nabigyan ng ilaw parang ganun," Chan said. "Parang ngayon alam ko na when and when not to shoot," he added. As for facing the Elasto Painters in the playoffs, the team where he won two titles and one Finals MVP, Chan says those are good memories. However, he's with the barangay now and its time to make new memories with his new team. "Basta ako masaya ako with my new team now. Masaya ako na I'm with Brgy. Ginebra," Chan said. "Masasabi ko lang, yung team na yun, yung Rain or Shine, I love that team. Maraming nangyari dun pero syempre kailangan mag move on. Kung saan ako present now, which is Ginebra, may goal kami dito," he added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Vernon Macklin would love to play in the PBA again

Hitting a pair of clutch free throws to win the game for Magnolia provided the fitting farewell for Vernon Macklin on Friday night. But it doesn't seem like Filipino basketball fans had seen the last of Macklin in the PBA. The 31-year-old Macklin is well-loved by Filipinos ever since he made his PBA debut with Barangay Ginebra in the 2013 Commissioner's Cup and led the Gin Kings' surprise finals run as the seventh seed before losing to No. 1 Alaska in a three-game sweep. And the adoration for him did not change in his return even if he switched teams. "Always.
