Dream come true for Ginebra calendar girl, muse Myrtle

Kapamilya star Myrtle Sarrosa was both grateful and excited walking in front of the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings on Sunday during the opening rites of the 43rd PBA season at the Araneta Coliseum. A self-confessed huge Ka-Barangay, the actress, former NCAA courtside reporter and cosplayer couldn’t help but be giddy with delight after the traditional parade of teams.   “Una sa lahat sobrang grateful ko na ako ang napili nila for this coming season to be their muse. Of course Ginebra is the back-to-back champions (in the Governors’ Cup),” said Sarrosa, who wore a red dress that highlighted the curves of the 5-foot-7 morena beauty. “Noong una kong nalaman medyo kinabahan ako, na-pressure ako pero ngayong nakilala ko na ang mga players and nakasama ko ang buong team sobrang grateful ko.” It was a dream come true for one true Ginebra fan. “Actually, ang pamilya ko huge Ginebra fans talaga. So nu’ng nalaman nila na ako yung magmu-muse lahat sila full support, all-out support,” said the 24-year old Sarrosa. “And I’m glad na first time kong mag-muse and doon pa sa team na gustong-gusto ko.” “Oo (dream come true), kasi noong bata ako, di ba galing pa ako ng Iloilo, gusto talaga naming manood ng PBA game. So it’s my first time na nandito ngayon, na maging isang muse pa for PBA, to be a guest for them so grateful ako,” she added. The Ginebra muse said that it’s her first time to walk inside the Big Dome’s hardwood wearing heels and her stint also served as a reunion with former Perpetual Help star Scottie Thompson, who Sarrosa covered while serving as one of NCAA’s courtside reporter. “Masaya! This time di ako naka-rubber shoes sa court. This time naka-heels ako tapos naglalakad ako kasama ang mga players,” she said. “Masaya ako kasi di ba noong nag-courtside ako for NCAA nakasama ko si Scottie (Thompson)? Masaya ako to be here again. (Parang reunion) namin. Masaya ako, I’m proud of him,” the Ilongga added. “Sabi namin, ‘Grabe last na kita naming nagre-report ako para sa Perps tapos ngayon magkasama na kami para sa Ginebra.’” The Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 Big Winner’s stint with Gin Kings doesn’t stop with just being the team’s muse. Sarrosa is also Ginebra’s 2018 calendar girl.   “So this 2018 ako rin ang calendar girl ng Ginebra,” said Sarrosa. “Marami kaming mga events in support for Ginebra and GSM Blue.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Charlie Sheen sues tabloid over assault allegation

NEW YORK (AP) --- Charlie Sheen is suing the National Enquirer, saying that the magazine defamed him by alleging he sexually assaulted teen actor Corey Haim. In papers filed Friday in Los Angeles, Sheen called the tabloid's allegations "ridiculous" and "disgusting." The Enquirer's Nov. 8 edition includes a quote from actor Dominick Brascia, saying that Sheen had assaulted Haim when he was in his mid-teens and Sheen around 20. Sheen and Haim, who died in 2010, both appeared in the 1986 release "Lucas." Brascia told the Enquirer that the assault came during the film's production. Sheen is seeking unspecified damages.

Ateneo coach Silva on 3 Eaglets in NBTC 24: ‘They deserve to be there’

Ateneo de Manila High School is undefeated in the UAAP 80 Juniors Basketball Tournament. And with a lineup as talented and as deep as they have, the Blue Eaglets are expected to go all the way to the Finals – and even get the championship. Led by three players in the top five in terms of Statistical Points (SPs) in the UAAP in second-running Kai Sotto, third-running SJ Belangel, and fourth-running Dave Ildefonso, indeed, no team is as talented and as deep as the kids from Katipunan. For head coach Joe Silva, those three are only worthy of being mentioned as top talent not only in the UAAP, but also the entire Philippines. “The three of them really are blue-chip talents sa high school,” he said. The first-ever NBTC Chooks-to-Go 24 high school player rankings seems to agree with him as in the initial list revealed last Monday, Sotto was deemed the top talent among all players taking part in the NCAA, UAAP, CESAFI (Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc.), MMBL (Metro Manila Basketball League), and FCAAF (Filipino-Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation). The NBTC Chooks-to-Go 24 is a weekly ranking of high school players which will ultimately be used to select the participants in the annual SM-NBTC High School All-Star Game at the MOA Arena. There, Belangel was ranked fifth while Ildefonso was eighth. That means that Ateneo has three players in the top eight in all of the Philippines. In Silva’s eyes, there is no doubt that his three prized prospects are nothing but deserving of their ranks. “They deserve to be there,” he said. That statement is even truer for Sotto, the towering teen who has long had scouts drooling about his potential. “If you put him in another team, he’d dominate, double-double yan easily. We’re not about individual stuff, but it’s not a surprise that Kai’s number one,” he said. The 7-foot-1, 15-year-old has per game counts of 12.6 points in 53.7 percent shooting, 12.6 rebounds, and 4.9 blocks in just 23.2 minutes of play. Silva was quick to remind Sotto, Belangel, and Ildefonso, however, “Good for them, pero they shouldn’t settle. They should work harder, stay humble, and focus on their studies.” The Blue Eaglets mentor, though, would also like to see two more names of his players on the NBTC Chooks-to-Go 24. “For me, Jason Credo and Joaqui Manuel should be there. Maybe they’re being overshadowed kasi medyo malakas yung team namin kaya they don’t get their numbers,” he said. He then continued, “Pero versatility-wise, value to the team, I believe they should be there.” Manuel has been their breakout player with averages of 11.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 1.6 assists while Credo has been their glue guy with norms of 10.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.6 steals. Manuel and Credo’s next chance to get on the list will be next Monday when the new rankings will be released. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

As the story progressed, the open-world game funneled players towards a decisive face-off against its devious antagonist. Four expansions followed the well-received "Final Fantasy XV".

‘Largest pot in history of Philippine golf’ up for grabs at 100th Solaire Philippine Open

Some of the Philippines and the world’s top golfers are set to converge in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for the 100th edition of the Philippine Open golf tournament, sponsored by Solaire Resort and Casino. The four-day tournament, which kicks off on February 28th at The Country Club in Sta. Rosa, will be the centennial edition of the Philippines’ top golf championship. “This is the fourth time that Solaire is sponsoring the Philippine Open, the country’s premier championship, and Asia’s oldest national open,” said Solaire Resort and Casino President and COO Thomas Arasi at the Solaire Philippine Open press conference held Tuesday morning. “But this sponsorship will be a special one since as the Open will be holding it’s 100th tournament.” As historic as the upcoming tournament will be, it will be even more enticing for the competitors, as the 2018 Philippine Open will feature over half a million US dollars in prize money. “This year’s total prize money for the Solaire Open is at $600,000 USD,” Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc. General Manager Colo Ventosa revealed at Tuesday’s presser. “This is the largest pot in the history of Philippine Golf, the Philippine Open, and we expect to lure at least 132 players, from abroad and locally as well.” Among those 132 competitors will include a handful of former champions, including the Philippines’ own Miguel Tabuena, who won the tournament back in 2015. “Our defending champion from 2017, Steve Lewton will be here to defend his title. We also have another past winner, Mardan Mamat from Singapore, he was the winner in 2012. We have Marcus Both from Australia, 2014 winner, of course we have Miguel Tabuena as well, and we also invited Miguel Angel Jimenez.” Ventosa added. Decorated Pinoy bet Tony Lascuna will be gunning for this year’s crown after England’s Steve Lewton won it all in 2017. “Masakit sa aming mga Pinoy kung iba yung nananalo kasi yun yung malaking tournament sa Pilipinas.” Lascuna told ABS-CBN Sports. “Ngayon, may Philippine Tour, malaki yung tulong, tinutulungan every year na mag-improve lahat ng Pilipino. Ngayon, may chance kami.”.....»»

Meet Asa Miller, the Philippines only delegate to Pyeongchang

Known as a tropical country, the Philippines has sent delegations to the Winter edition of the quadriennial event four times since 1972, the most recent of which was figure skater Michael Christian Martinez, who went to Sochi, Russia in 2014. Once again, our nation will have to huddle up and support the country's only Olympian this year, 17-year old Asa Miller, who will be competing in the slalom ski event. The event involves going down a slope, passing through poles and gates at the fastest time. Slalom skiing comprises of two events, slalom and giant slalom. Miller will compete in both events. Miller, a native of Portland, Oregon, first took hold of skiing when he was a toddler, and first competed when he was six. Miller currently competes for the Meadow Race Team in Mt. Hood, Oregon, where he had been competing for the past nine years. The Filipino-American, who traces his roots to his mother, competed at the FIS World Junior Championships in Sweden last year, but flopped.  “I honestly didn’t do so well, but I went more for the learning experience and the opportunity to compete in a world event," Miller told The Cardinal Times, the official publication of Lincoln High School, Miller's current school. As Miller prepares for this year's Winter Olympics, he goes to the event without financial support from the government, as he will pay for his own expenses in the whole event, ranging from plane tickets, equipment, and entry fees. Readers may donate here at his GoFundMe page, where he still has a long way before even making ends meet......»»
