It s a dream come true -- Kapamilya actor Xian Lim on MPBL debut

Kapamilya actor Xian Lim flexed his muscles and showed off his sculpted biceps after scoring over two defenders early in the fourth quarter. Lim’s Mandaluyong squad was already ahead by a mile when he scored the last of his six points but his basket was enough to energize the crowd inside the Blue Eagle gym at the Ateneo de Manila University campus going as the El Tigre ripped apart the Pasig Pirates, 98-55, in the 2018 MPBL Datu Cup Thursday night. The hunky heartthrob cherished his debut for Mandaluyong where he played alongside hardcourt stars Ray Parks and Prince Rivero, calling it a ‘dream come true’ as it brought back his interest to play competitive basketball – the very reason why he decided to come back to the Philippines. “It’s a dream come true para sa akin,” said the 6-foot-1 Lim. “Ito ang dahilan kung bakit ako pumunta from the States to the Philippines, to play basketball for UE along with  (JR) Alabanza kaya nakakatuwa na nag-reconnect kami.” Lim was a part of University of the East’s Team B a few years back but never made it into the school’s main team in the UAAP as he shifted his career into showbiz. Basketball runs in the veins of Xian, whose father Godofredo Lim Uy played for UE in the 80’s, and he’s thankful for the opportunity.      “Napakagandang opportunity ng MPBL especially for everyone, all the Filipinos who want to play basketball to be given a chance,” he said. “Siyempre mahirap (ang level of play). Nirerespeto ko ang mga ‘to eh, napapanood ko lang ang mga ito sa TV pero sabi nga ni coach Mac (Cuan) we have to respect the game, we have to respect all the players and we have to hustle hard,” Lim added. Lim scored his first point in the first half from a split in the free throw line. Fielded back in late in third quarter, Lim uncorked a booming top of the key three-pointer over an outstretched arm of a Pasig defender. He followed it up with strong drive at the hoop off an offensive rebound, twisting in the air and finding a crease to slice through defense of Pasig’s Martin Gozum and Kojack Melegrito at the fourth. Lim celebrated his basket with some swag, much to the delight of the screaming fans. Lim logged in 15 minutes of action, pulling down six rebounds and swatting away a shot.            “Unti-unti na po (nakokondisyon). Araw-araw nagpa-practice, napapagalitan nga lagi ni coach Mac pero to become a better player naman po,” he said. Lim also liked that his basketball career made him learn the importance of discipline in time management both in hoops and in showbiz. “Sa pelikula naman po nagagawan naman ng paraan. Nagiging flexible naman sila sa schedule,” he said. “Sobra (ang nagiging disiplina ko sa schedule) dahil iba po ang disiplina ng player. Kapag sinabing seven o’clock ang practice hindi pwedeng nine o’clock dumating. It’s a whole other discipline po sa basketball.” Lim is now looking forward to Mandaluyong’s game against Marikina – a squad that parades another Kapamilya actor Gerald Anderson. “Pinag-uusapan namin yun noong isang araw ang sabi ko, ‘Bro kailan tayo maglalaro? Wala pa tayong schedule,’” said Lim. “Pero parehong kaming nangangamba kasi all the other players we’re playing with napakagaling and siyempre for me and Gerald to get playing time, si Gerald naman he’s a really good basketball player. Pero for me and him to get playing time, nilalakasan na lang po namin ang dasal namin kay Lord.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Playoff disappointments make Cup parade sweeter for Capitals

By Stephen Whyno, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Nine early playoff exits paved the way for the Capitals' unexpected Stanley Cup run and made the trip down Constitution Avenue all the more satisfying to the NHL champions and their fans. Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom rode the final bus down the mile-long parade route, lifting the Cup to roaring cheers and waving to seas of red in the crowd. Five days after capturing the franchise's first title and the first of any kind by a Washington team in the major four professional sports since 1992, this was their day to soak in winning following so much disappointment. "Because we waited so long, I think it feels even better," Backstrom said. Hundreds of thousands of fans lined Constitution and filled the National Mall on Tuesday to celebrate a long journey fulfilled. One fan held up a sign reading, "Worth the Wait," but before the end of the rally, T.J. Oshie already had the crowd thinking about next season. "There's been a lot of chants," Oshie said. "There's been, "Let's Go Caps," there's been, "We Want the Cup." We've heard in the streets, "We've got the Cup." We've got a new one for you today — "Back-to-back." The serious work of getting geared up for the 2018-19 season begins in the coming days and weeks with decisions on coach Barry Trotz, defenseman John Carlson and other free agents. But for players such as Ovechkin and Backstrom who have been through eliminations at the hands of the Penguins, Rangers, Lightning, Canadiens and Flyers dating to 2008, the partying leading up to the parade isn't close to ending. "It just started," Backstrom said. Much like the Capitals did over the weekend by taking the Cup to local bars and restaurants, the parade was a chance to celebrate with a fan base that had to endure 42 seasons without a Cup. Fans congregated on the National Mall hours before the parade began, filled the steps of the National Archives and lined up 20 deep in some areas to catch a glimpse of players riding more than three dozen buses from 23rd Street to 7th. "Look at this — look at the people that's here" Ovechkin said. "We thought it was going to be crazy, but it's basically nuts. You guys are killing it." Ovechkin, Backstrom, veteran Brooks Orpik, owner Ted Leonsis and team president Dick Patrick took up the most prominent place in the parade on the last bus with the Stanley Cup. Chants of "Ovi! Ovi!" alternated with pleas of "Raise the Cup!" which Ovechkin, Backstrom and Orpik did off and on while sipping from beer bottles. Trotz threw beads from his double-decker bus, but the pending free agent coach saved potentially his most meaningful impact of the day for his speech at the rally. "I know our years of adversity has sort of came to an end," Trotz said. "We did this together and it feels so special. Love this, love the community. We're going to do it again." There's no certainty about Trotz unless he signs a new contract, but the Capitals should have much of their core intact as they try to complete the difficult task of repeating. Before rival Pittsburgh went back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, no team had done it since Detroit in 1997 and 1998. Of course, that didn't stop players from bringing it up to the delight of the crowd that stretched down the Mall almost to the Washington Monument. "I couldn't see the end of people from the stage," winger Tom Wilson said. "It's unbelievable to give back the least we could and just celebrate with them." Beyond the scripted — two high school marching bands, an F-16 flyover, Budweiser Clydesdales and past greats such as Olie Kolzig and Peter Bondra — backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer sprinted around with the D.C. flag, Oshie chugged a beer through his jersey and Ovechkin and fellow Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov dropped F-bombs on stage. Trotz invoked Martin Luther King Jr. by saying, "We had a dream, and we did it." Leonsis quoted John F. Kennedy's "Ask Not" speech. Wilson brought it back to the title by shouting, "Everybody says what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but we brought the Cup home!" By the end of the sun-soaked rally, Capitals players swayed together and sang Queen's "We Are the Champions," a song they've been belting out renditions of with varying sobriety over the past few days. "It's been a long time since we had a championship here in this city," Backstrom said. "To be able to after all these years to bring it, it's great. It's a sports city. There's not another city that deserves a championship more than D.C.".....»»
