Judy Ann, Angelica forge ‘unholy alliance’ in gay romp

  Comedy is more effective when it manages to mine simple truths alongside life's ironies and contradictions. But it quickly loses its appeal when it veers too far away from reality. In Jun Robles Lana's feel-good comedic romp, "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes," Angelica Panganiban juggles these oftentimes contradictory elements to "winking" perfection, with Judy Ann Santos turning in a complementary portrayal that allows the dramatic actress to "get off the beaten track." Like "Grace and Frankie," the acclaimed Netflix series it channels, the movie is boosted by its lead actresses' versatility, potent screen presence and acting stamina---you can't take your eyes off them.

Juday on hubby Ryan: He’s definitely not gay

  Actress Judy Ann Santos, who in the comedy flick "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes" plays a wife who discovers she is married to a gay man, said this experience would shock and destroy her if it happened to her in real life. "You would not be able to talk to me properly for about three days; after that, I'd start looking for evidence," said the actress, who has been married to TV host Ryan Agoncillo since 2009. "Luckily, I don't see any signs in Ryan. He is definitely not gay!" The couple has two biological children, Lucho and Luna, and an adopted daughter, Yohan.

This is not your kuya s Gilas Pilipinas

Basketball continues to evolve and the Philippine brand is not exempted from it. With the release of the initial #23for23 pool for the upcoming 2023 FIBA World Cup co-hosted by the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia, one thing is for sure: Gilas Pilipinas will look a whole lot different in 2023 compared to the one that's currently trying to qualify for the 2019 World Cup. The future Gilas will still have a ton of shooters since that's one of the national team's greatest strengths but the future Gilas will also have a higher ceiling than any other Philippine team ever assembled ever. Seriously, one quick look at the initial #23for23 list and you'll see 10 players listed at least 6'6". Five of them are listed at least 6'8". Kai Sotto is already a legit seven footer at 15 while AJ Edu is an ultra-athletic forward that stands 6'11". The wings and guard spots are also filled with guys who are listed at 6'4". Guys like Kobe Paras, Thirdy Ravena, and even CJ Perez all have decent size to play at those positions. In the current #23for23 list, the shortest player is Ateneo's Matt Nieto at 5'10". Oh and almost all of the players in that list, including the supposed towers and anchors of the team, can shoot from the outside. It's the time of the basketball unicorn and it's about time the Philippines caught up. "We have to start somewhere," head coach Chot Reyes on putting up his list of players for 2023. "That's our dream for Philippine basketball for the longest time. Now we're starting that with that vision in mind, to have tall players who can still play, run, and shoot at the same time," he added. Following Gilas' first practice for 2018 Monday, it appears that the future can live up to potential. The room for development is there of course but the foundation seems solid for now. "Somebody was mentioning in the shooting drills na lahat nakaka-shoot ah. That's the reason why they're here," Reyes said. "They were all chosen for their shooting ability and that's what we're looking for. The ones that can shoot the long ball and still have the height," he added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Petron survives scare, advances to semis

Petron survived a scare put up by an upset-conscious Generika-Ayala side, coming back from a set down to eke out a 19-25, 25-22, 22-25, 25-17, 15-11, win Tuesday in the knockout quarterfinals of the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.    The Blazer Spikers needed a huge explosion from American import Lindsay Stalzer in the closing stretch of the fifth frame including the last two points of the match to clinch a semifinals spot against the winner between back-to-back defending champion Foton and Sta. Lucia Realty. Stalzer broke a 9-9 deadlock with consecutive hits followed by a huge block by Mika Reyes on Lifesaver’s Ukrainian import Katarina Pilepic for a 12-9 lead. Generika-Ayala made a final push as Pilepic scored on block against Stalzer following a net touch violation by Petron to close the gap, 12-11. But Blaze Spikers American reinforcement Hillary Hurley doused cold water on the Lifesavers fightback with an attack from the backrow that went off the hands of Angelica Legacion. Stalzer took matters on her own hands, scoring a monster block kill on Pilepic before sealing the victory with an off the block hit.         “Para kaming dumaan sa butas ng karayom. Sobra,” said Petron coach Shaq delos Santos as he breathed a sigh of relief after dodging an upset in game where his wards gave away 31 points off errors. “Honestly speaking hindi talaga yun ang laro namin.”  Stalzer pounded 24 kills and had three kill blocks for 27 points while Hurley had 18 attacks in her 21-point output for the Blaze Spikers. Mika Reyes had 13 markers while Ces Molina and Ria Meneses combined for 17 points for Petron in the two-hour, 42-minute encounter.   Generika-Ayala erased a 2-5 deficit in the fifth set with five straight points to take a 7-5 lead. Petron answered with a run of their own to take the helm, 9-8, only to see Pilepic knot the frame at 9. Darlene Ramdin of Trinidad and Tobago hammered 33 attacks with a couple of blocks for game-high 33 points in a lost cause for Generika-Ayala. Pilepic scored 22 while Acy Masangkay and Gen Casugod combined for eight for the Lifesavers, who closed the preliminary round with a 3-5 card.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Draymond Green’s intensity, leadership pushes Durant, others

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Draymond Green and Kevin Durant bet on just about anything. “Life,” Green explained, “who drives home faster from the practice facility, who gets to the game earlier. You want us to tell you our whole life?” KD and Dray have formed quite a bond since way back, when Green was part of the strategic recruiting process to bring Durant to the Bay Area from Oklahoma City before last season. They’ve had a few heated moments, too, and both say they are better for it. And there’s no official count — that has been shared, anyway — on who owes who what for losing those friendly wagers. “Yeah, I’m not in those bets,” teammate Shaun Livingston said. “It could be a shot to start the practice, in the corner, anything. It doesn’t matter. Wherever. They just walk up to each other all the time, ‘Bet, bet it, bet it.’” Green, part of the Warriors contingent in the Hamptons to meet with Durant before the big July 4 decision announcement last year, lit into Durant during a loss to Memphis back in January. Then they got into it again in a three-point defeat at Sacramento on Feb. 4 (Feb. 5, PHL time). “Hollered at me? Ha! We’re grown men, ain’t nobody hollering at me,” Durant said good-naturedly after a recent practice when asked about the animated back-and-forth, as surrounding media members erupted into laughter at his response. He then chose far more colorful language — and expletives — to describe their heated exchange during a timeout. Green acknowledges being mad that night. He and Durant are thriving now. “It just shows the trust that we have in each other, the relationship we have that we can go at each other,” Green said. “No one takes it personal. You say what you got to say, I say what I got to say. We figure it out and then we move on. That’s kind of what that was. You want to grow from moments like that if you’re a strong team, if your chemistry’s strong, you grow from moments like that. Chemistry’s not so strong, you’re not much of a together team, you can crumble from situations like that. But our chemistry is one of the things that makes us special.” Golden State seemed to build from those moments, and the defending NBA champs withstood Durant’s absence for 19 games shortly thereafter because of a knee injury. Livingston is the guy who stood between them that night in the Golden 1 Center, and notes, “They’re cut from the same cloth in a sense.” “It’s good to have that type of relationship, honestly, because when adversity strikes and things hit, they’re not afraid to say anything to each other,” Livingston said, “and you need that.” The Warriors’ emotional leader has been doing a bit of everything. After a recent outing, Green stole a look at his stat line and grinned. He certainly appreciated that performance: 10 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, a season-best five blocked shots, two steals and just one turnover in 31 impressive minutes. “I like a line like that,” he said. “It kind of shows that you did everything on the floor and not just one thing. I definitely enjoy having a stat line like that if it means anything.” It means plenty to the Warriors, who are still working to find a consistent flow this season. They have struggled at times to take care of the ball and handle the basic fundamentals. That’s also typical Green, who lately is also having games in which he catches defenses off guard by knocking down three-pointers. His teammates love it all. “I knew he would make my job way easier and I knew I could help him,” Durant said. “I knew that his intensity was going to up the level of everybody on the floor, the way he approaches the game, his passion and love for the game. That stuff stood out more than anything. Obviously he’s quick for his position, he’s got long arms, he can shoot the 3, he can pass, he can rebound, but just his passion and love for the game that kind of shines bright, and it’s contagious.” Green raised his right arm in the air on back-to-back possessions in the fourth quarter of a Nov. 13 (Nov. 14, PHL time) win against the Magic, knocking down a three-pointer from the top of the arc before a layup moments later. “He’s unique from the standpoint of Steph, Klay and KD are guys that can go for 60. But Draymond just impacts the game in so many ways that you’ve just got to compete against him. You’ve got to understand that he can do it all,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. Green and Durant spent time together as 2016 Olympians in Rio. KD couldn’t wait to play with Green regularly — even if they went at it back on Feb. 4 (Feb. 5, PHL time) in Sacramento. “It’s just two teammates in the heat of the moment, both needed, at that point, that game, we were all bad,” Durant said. “We needed energy somehow. We kind of both sensed that. We came back to the huddle and got after it.” Still, that fire is what Durant loves about his intense teammate. Not to mention the work he puts in shooting from every spot on the floor. “It means a lot,” Green said. “You have to have those guys’ trust. If somebody sees you working, they have more trust in that. Obviously as one of the leaders of this team, you should be one of the hardest workers.” In the past three seasons, Green has notched five games with at least five points, five rebounds, five assists and five blocks. “You understand how impactful he can be without really scoring a lot of points or having any ooh or aah moments on the offensive end,” Stephen Curry said. “He has a lot of ooh and aah moments with the hustle plays and defensively. It seems like he’s always kind of in the play somehow. We appreciate every little bit of that effort and the results he prides himself in every single time he’s out there on the floor. His stat lines sometimes look like this where he’s so well-rounded across the board — points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots and whatnot — and he’ll bang down three, four triples every once in a while. You appreciate what he brings to the squad every single night and his energy and his passion.”.....»»

Cargo Movers shoot down Blaze Spikers in debut

Games Tuesday: (FilOil Flying V Centre) 2:00 p.m. –- Foton vs Iriga 4:15 p.m. –- UST vs Cocolife 7:00 p.m. –- F2 Logistics vs Sta. Lucia   BACOLOD CITY –- F2 Logistics debuted with a bang after shooting down erstwhile unbeaten Petron, 25-21, 20-25, 25-23, 25-22, Saturday night in the 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the University of St. La Salle gym here. Playing in front of a huge crowd in the league’s first visit in the City of Smiles, the Cargo Movers snapped the Blaze Spikers’ three-game winning streak with a strong performance that could tilt the balance of power in this import-flavored tournament. Six-foot-2 Venezuelan import Maria Jose Gonzales Perez scored all of her 18 points off kills while American Kennedy Bryan and Kim Kianna Dy chipped in 14 markers each for F2 Logistics, which exacted revenge on the same team that booted them out in the semifinals last year. Libero Dawn Macandili was as always superb with her floor defense with 14 digs and 13 excellent receptions while Kim Fajardo tallied 25 excellent sets.    But head coach Ramil De Jesus played down their victory, adding that they still have a lot to improve.     “Breaks of the game lang siguro. Kita naman noong third set at second set may mga lapses pa kami sa rotation,” he said. “Sa kakulangan lang 'yun ng familiarity sa isa't isa. Siguro 'yun talaga ang kailangan namin lutasin sa mga susunod namin na laro.” American reinforcement Hilary Hurley posted 21 points while Lindsay Stalzer and skipper Ces Molina got 13 each for Petron. Mika Reyes and Ria Meneses had eight markers apiece in a lost cause for the Blaze Spikers.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Camp time! Warriors, Wolves prepare to open training camp

em>By Jon Krawczysnki, Associated Press /em> The Golden State Warriors were the last team standing when the NBA season closed in June. Thanks to a preseason trip to China, they are one of the first teams to get going this season as the league gets up and rolling again. The Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves will hold their media days on Friday and open training camps Saturday, a few days ahead of the rest of the league as they prepare for an early October trip to China for games in Shanghai and Shenzhen as part of the league’s ongoing efforts to grow the game in the basketball-crazy nation. Golden State will be the headliner in China, just like it has been in the NBA for the last three seasons. And the Warriors open camp this season with a major advantage over everyone else that goes above and beyond the sheer talent the organization has assembled with Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. While the rest of the league spent the entire summer scrambling to upgrade in a desperate attempt to enter Golden State’s stratosphere, the Warriors return almost the entire roster from the team that won its second championship in three seasons. In fact, Golden State should only be better this year because it will not have to spend part of the early season figuring out how to incorporate Durant’s game with three other All-Stars. Meanwhile, teams like the Rockets, Cavaliers, Thunder, Timberwolves and Celtics will need all of the preseason and then some to get on the same page with the new stars in town. There will be no such orientation process in Golden State. Free agents Nick Young and Omri Casspi will have to acclimate, but that is a lot easier to do when Durant and Curry are showing them around. ___ So as media days and training camps get up and running, here are a few things to watch at the outset: strong>HARD FEELINGS? /strong> It appeared that Durant was on his way to mending some fences in Oklahoma City after he left the organization to join Golden State last season. But the fence posts may have been torn down again when Durant disparaged the Thunder team and coach Billy Donovan as the biggest reasons he left to join the Warriors. Durant has since apologized , but the topic will likely come up again when he speaks to the media on Friday. And it should be interesting to see if Russell Westbrook has anything to say about it when the Thunder open early next week. strong>CP3 ARRIVES: /strong>The most intriguing roster experiment this year may be in Houston, where GM Daryl Morey is teaming James Harden with Chris Paul in a star-studded backcourt. Harden finished second in the MVP voting last season after moving from shooting guard to point guard and now will have to move back to accommodate Paul. Both players are used to having the ball in their hands and orchestrating the offense, so there will likely be some feeling-out that needs to be done in camp. The two have already appeared in a television commercial together, so they’re off to a running start. strong>KYRIE’S MOVE: /strong>The biggest headline in a wild offseason was Kyrie Irving’s request for a trade from the Cavaliers. He landed in Boston in a move that could define his legacy, the All-Star who didn’t want to play with LeBron James. Irving did little to shed light on his motives in an enigmatic interview with ESPN and likely will be bombarded with questions about it at media day. How the Celtics handle the early crush of attention and move past Irving’s exit from Cleveland could play a big role in their ability to truly challenge the Cavs in the Eastern Conference. strong>CRASH COURSE: /strong>The Timberwolves are one of the teams that made significant roster changes this summer after a disappointing 31-win season in Tom Thibodeau’s first year as coach. They added Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford while trading away Ricky Rubio in an offseason overhaul aimed at ending the league’s longest active playoff drought at 13 seasons. Thibodeau asked owner Glen Taylor to allow the team to hold training camp in San Diego before they head out to China to get them away from the distractions of home and allow them to bond in a preseason that only includes three games. That Butler and Gibson played for Thibodeau with the Bulls should help that transition, but it will no doubt be a process worth watching. strong>RULES CHANGES: /strong>When players start taking the court for exhibition games, it will offer an opportunity for them to start to adjust to rules changes and points of emphasis that are new every season. One notable difference this year will be the “James Harden rule,” a change in the way the game is called aimed at reducing the number of instances a player tricks a defender into fouling them and then goes into a shooting motion to try to earn free throw attempts. Harden is the master , though dozens of players do the same thing. .....»»
