From ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Bodyguard,’ Richard Madden gets a career upgrade

As an actor, Richard Madden is no stranger to shocking scenes of severed heads and other gory forms of dismemberment. His six-episode dramatic thriller "Bodyguard" is characterized by astutely staged twists and edge-of-your-seat action sequences that would impress even Robb Stark, the character he played in "Game of Thrones" who succumbed to Walder Frey's vengeful machinations in the infamous "Red Wedding" massacre.   "Bodyguard," which will be streamed by Netflix in territories outside the United Kingdom starting Oct. 24, doesn't have witches, dragons and those reanimated Wights, but it has characters that prove to be even deadlier and more sinister---corrupt politicians ...Keep on reading: From ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Bodyguard,’ Richard Madden gets a career upgrade.....»»

UAAP: Dave I. says his killer instinct was taught by coach Joe Silva

Dave Ildefonso scored 14 points to help National University get back on track in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Six of those points came from two triples – triples that allowed Ildefonso to show some love to his former mentor who was now on the opposite side. “Nung warm-up pa lang, gumaganun na ako, sabi ko, barilan kami,” he told reporters while doing finger guns. He then continued, “Bago pa kasi mag-season, napag-usapan namin na barilan kami pag nakaka-shoot ako ng three-points.” Ildefonso was a key cog while Coach Joe was the shot-caller for Ateneo de Manila High School from Seasons 78 to 80. There, they won one championship together. And there, the championship attitude was established and reinforced inside Ildefonso. “Si Coach Joe, kahit tambak ng 20 o 30 o up siya ng 20 o 30, gusto niya pa ring makita sa players niya yung killer instinct. Yun yung lagi niyang sinasabi dati – killer instinct,” he shared. He then continued, “Tinuturo niya laging since gusto naming mag-champion, dapat umasta kaming mag-champion.” Indeed, the super rookie has just brought that attitude to the Bulldogs – making an immediate impact and taking the reins of leadership. Still, that didn’t change the fact that facing off against his mentor was uncharted territory. “It’s fun tapos siyempre, weird din,” he said. Whatever happens, though, one thing is certain – there will always be a bond between Ildefonso and Coach Joe. “Sabi nga rin ni Coach Jamike [Jarin], he was the enemy pero after the game, after everything, coach ko pa rin siya, friend ko pa rin siya, mentor ko pa rin siya,” he said. For his part, the now UE head coach could only agree. As he put it, “Wherever we are, whatever team we are in, we don’t forget each other.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Ateneo back on top of UAAP women s badminton after 5 years

Ateneo de Manila University capped a Cinderella run by annexing its fourth women's title - and the first in five years - with a 3-0 conquest of UP Friday at the Rizal Memorial Badminton Hall. Chanelle Lunod took 79 minutes to beat Poca Alcala, 21-19, 14-21, 21-16, in the first singles before the Lady Eagles got the needed buffer after Samantha Ramos rallied from a set down to dispose Jessie Francisco, 16-21, 21-17, 21-16, in the second singles. Lunod and Geva de Vera, who were later named co-tournament MVPs, dominated Leah Inlayo and Mary Ann Marañon, 21-13, 21-8, in the first doubles to seal the deal for Ateneo. In the Finals opener, the Lady Eagles stunned the Lady Maroons, 3-2.

UAAP: Gomez de Liaño bros scolded for not making free throws

The Gomez de Liaño brothers were simply unstoppable in UP's close 88-87 win against the NU Bulldogs at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum Sunday afternoon. Juan led the Maroons in scoring with 20, but added eight rebounds and six assists for his trouble. Meanwhile, his older and taller brother Javi, added a career-high 19 markers, eight boards, and five dimes. Both were dominant in every facet of the floor in that win -- except for the charity stripe. The siblings' free throw display was not obviously their greatest aspect Sunday, as the brothers combined just to shoot 2/10 from the 15-foot line, good for 20-percent. If not for JV Gallego's costly error in the dying seconds of the game, Javi's two missed free throws under eight seconds left could have cost UP the win. The boys' dismal performance caught the attention of their parents, who jokingly reminded their children to practice their foul shots.  Mga anak, please naman. Magpractice naman kayo ng freethows. 🙏 — Bert & Anna GDL (@bertlovesanna) October 7, 2018 Even teammate Bright Akhuetie joined the fun, taking a swipe at the brothers' supposed lapses in the fourth quarter. I wonder why they choked today, @javigdl22 @juan_swish9 Would give 80% on the line all day.. One of those days I guess — Bright Osagie Akhuetie (@bright_bigtinzz) October 7, 2018 Don't forget to bend your knees, kids. .....»»

Player of the Week Comboy making two-way impact for FEU in UAAP 81

If the Far Eastern University Tamaraws want to see consistency, they won't have to look further than Wendell Comboy whose end-to-end efforts proved to be crucial in clinching back-to-back wins.  The hot hand of the Tamaraws' fourth-year guard, paired with his lockdown defense, earned him the recognition as the Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Press Corps UAAP Player of the Week.  In FEU’s bounce-back effort against the National University Bulldogs last Wednesday, Comboy topped the scoring column with 18 points, going 7-of-12 from the field.  He continued his momentum four days later in the cardiac game against the then-undefeated Adamson Soaring Falcons by scoring 13 points to help the Tamaraws edge out Franz Pumaren’s squad in overtime.  In the dying seconds of the thriller, the 6-0 Comboy even came up with a huge block on 6-5 Sean Manganti that sealed the deal on FEU's stoppage of the Falcons' unbeaten start. “Pero yun yung talagang nagbibigay sa akin ng playing time,” said Comboy about his defensive contributions to the team.  “Sabi nga ni Coach Olsen [Racela] na dumepensa muna ako tsaka dadating yung opensa ko. Bonus nalang yun.” Comboy edged out University of Santo Tomas’ CJ Cansino, Ateneo’s Angelo Kouame, and UP's Bright Akhuetie for the weekly award given by scribes from print and online covering the league......»»
