ONE Championship: Four World Titles make Team Lakay’s Christmas special this 2018

Christmas is one the biggest holidays in the Philippines. Incomparable to other countries, Christmas lights and holiday jingles start to play as early as September.   People from all walks of life gather on this special occasion and celebrate the holiday with food, drinks, and by spending time with friends and family.   Members of Team Lakay, the country's most renowned mixed martial arts group, have its own way of holding an annual celebration for the Yuletide season.   Housing four ONE World Champions such as Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, Geje Eustaquio and Joshua Pacio, the Baguio City-headquartered camp holds a yearly Christmas party in mid-December to cap off the year.   "We have an early celebration coming up this Saturday, 15 December. We are going to have a beach house party in San Juan, La Union," Eustaquio shared.   "The gathering will celebrate our accomplishments this 2018, and also prepare for 2019. Everybody will come that day, most notably our professional athletes.”   Their way of celebration is not like any other party as it involves honoring their native tradition with a sumptuous feast and holding insightful talks for the advancement of their athletes’ career.   "We have a program, a feast, and an open mat for whoever wants to roll. Our world champions will share their experience and tell what they went through this year," Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao bared.   "This kind of gathering is our way to spend quality time with each other. This is our way to inspire other athletes, tighten our bond, and learn from each other.”   Finishing their campaign with four gold-plated belts under the ONE Championship banner, Sangiao believes that 2018 is Team Lakay’s most successful year since its inception in 2003   “It’s our biggest year. We won championship titles and received many awards this year. This is the result of our hard work, dedication, and sacrifice,” the Team Lakay headmaster said.   “Like we always say, this is our passion. We love what we do. These awards and titles are just the fruit of our hard labor.”   Although Team Lakay hauled all the titles, recognition and accolades that they could possibly get in 2018, all that matters to them is seeing each individual with gleeful smiles on their faces by the year's end.   "We are grateful for every year. We are always full of joy,” Eustaquio stated. “Seeing each other happy, seeing everyone living a peaceful life is more than enough.”.....»»

Mavs extend home streak, end skid vs. Hawks in 114-107 win

By Schuyler Dixon, Associated Press DALLAS (AP) — Harrison Barnes scored 25 points, Luka Doncic added 24 and the Dallas Mavericks extended their home winning streak to 11 games while ending a 10-game skid against Atlanta in a 114-107 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). J.J. Barea had 18 points before leaving with a sprained left ankle as the Mavericks finally beat the Hawks after blowing a 26-point lead in October, when rookie Trae Young had a strong fourth quarter in his home debut to help the Hawks rally to a 111-104 win. Instead of wilting in the fourth quarter, the Mavericks took control with a 7-0 opening run for a 10-point lead and eventually went up by as many as 15 before the Hawks made it closer with an 11-1 run late. It was Dallas' first win over Atlanta since Oct. 30, 2013, and the home winning streak is the longest since a 12-game run in 2007-08. Young had 24 points and 10 assists, but the rematch reiterated the opposite directions both teams are headed after ending the first meeting at 2-2. The Mavericks are 13-9 since then and among the current playoff teams in the rough Western Conference. The Hawks have gone 4-19. Kent Bazemore scored 22 for Atlanta, and John Collins had 20 points and a career-high 17 rebounds. Role players got the fourth moving for Dallas rather than Barnes and the rookie sensation Doncic, who was drafted third overall by Atlanta and traded to Dallas while the Mavericks selected Young fifth for the Hawks. Maxi Kleber opened the fourth with a dunk and scored all seven of his points in the final quarter, and Dorian Finney-Smith's free throw gave Dallas its first 10-point lead. Finney-Smith scored 11. Doncic had 10 rebounds and a team-high six assists, and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 11 rebounds. NO DIRK YET Dirk Nowitzki was inactive after being listed as questionable for the first time as the longer-than-expected recovery from left ankle surgery delays him from officially becoming the first NBA player with 21 seasons for one franchise. Coach Rick Carlisle said the designation meant the 40-year-old Nowitzki was getting closer to returning, but didn't want to discuss his status further before the game. TIP-INS Hawks: Vince Carter, Nowitzki's former teammate also in his 21st season, got a nice ovation when he entered the game in the first quarter. The 41-year-old scored his only points on a triple in the first quarter. ... Collins had nine offensive rebounds, most by a Dallas opponent this season. Mavericks: Carlisle was ejected after two quick technicals in the third quarter when he thought Barnes got fouled without a call. Assistant Stephen Silas took over. ... PG Dennis Smith Jr. missed his fourth straight game with a sprained right wrist. ... Doncic was 12-of-15 from the line as Dallas attempted a season-high 43 free throws. UP NEXT Hawks: At Boston on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Mavericks: At Phoenix on Thursday (Friday, PHL time)......»»

Cooper, Cowboys join Redskins atop NFC East with 31-23 win

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott made the $21 donation after his touchdown. Amari Cooper took the freebie following the first of his two scores. The bonus for the Dallas Cowboys: They're all the way back in the NFC East race. Cooper had a 90-yard touchdown after celebrating with a free throw following his first scoring catch, Elliott ran for 121 yards with his TD and the Cowboys pulled even with Washington atop the division with a 31-23 Thanksgiving win over the Redskins on Thursday. The Cowboys (6-5) won their third straight game since the first home loss, to Tennessee in the Dallas debut of Cooper following a trade dropped them two games under .500. Dallas' eighth win in nine Thanksgiving games against Washington, and second in three seasons, earned a season split. The Redskins (6-5) lost for the third time in four games in Colt McCoy's first start in four years coming off Alex Smith's season-ending leg injury. The former Texas Longhorns star threw three interceptions to offset two touchdown passes. McCoy won his two previous starts at the home of the Cowboys, one for the 2009 Big 12 championship and the other his most recent NFL victory with the Redskins in 2014. Cooper, the former Oakland receiver had much more fun in his second home game, finishing with a Dallas Thanksgiving-best 180 yards receiving — 105 of those coming after the catch on his two touchdowns. First, Cooper ran away from Quinton Dunbar after the Washington cornerback slipped on a short pass, turning it into a 40-yard TD for a 17-13 lead. Cooper celebrated by mimicking a free throw , shooting the football through the goal post. On the 90-yarder, Cooper made the catch just outside the Dallas 30, spun out of the arms of Fabian Moreau and won the race to the pylon against Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who tried to shove him out of bounds around the 5. It was his longest career catch and the longest completion in Dak Prescott's three seasons. McCoy looked as if he hadn't started a game in a long time early, throwing into double coverage on his first play and fumbling while trying to scramble on his third, with the Redskins recovering and punting. But McCoy settled in with a couple of third-down passes to Jordan Reed to keep drives going, then hit Vernon Davis in stride on a 53-yard touchdown — the longest Washington completion of the season — for a 7-7 tie. The Cowboys were having all the fun before the Redskins pulled even, with Elliott scoring on a 16-yard run and dropping $21 into a giant Salvation Army red kettle behind the end zone. The cash was handed to him by a team photographer. As a rookie in 2016, Elliott jumped into the kettle on the same part of the field after a touchdown in a 31-26 win over the Redskins. That season's NFL rushing champion, who wears No. 21, was fined for the stunt and later donated $21,000 to the Salvation Army. After scoring on a scrambling 5-yard run for the third Dallas touchdown in less than eight minutes and a 31-13 lead, Prescott let Elliott help him into another kettle on the other end of the field, drawing the same unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Elliott did two years ago. Elliott missed the Thanksgiving game last year on his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. MISSING PRO BOWLER Redskins defensive end Preston Smith had seven QB pressures before halftime, the most in the NFL in the first half this season. All of them came against Cameron Fleming, who was filling in for Tyron Smith. The five-time Pro Bowler Smith was active but didn't play after saying he experienced a stinger in the previous game against Atlanta. Smith was listed as questionable with a neck injury coming in. Smith finished with 1½ of the four sacks of Prescott — all in the first half — and had four QB hits. MR. IRREVELANT Washington receiver Trey Quinn, the final pick of this year's draft at the home of the Cowboys and a former player at nearby SMU, set up his own 14-yard touchdown catch for Washington's only lead at 13-10 in the third quarter with a 30-yard punt return to the Dallas 25. INJURIES Redskins running back Adrian Peterson left briefly in the first quarter with a shoulder injury but returned. Still, he wasn't nearly as effective as he was in Washington's 20-17 win in the first meeting. The four-time All-Pro finished with 35 yards on 12 carries after going for 99 yards at home. UP NEXT Redskins: First of two meetings in the final five games against the defending champion Eagles, at Philadelphia on Monday, Dec. 3. Cowboys: Face New Orleans in the second of three straight home games next Thursday......»»

Drama, the long ball center of early season NBA intrigue

By Kyle Hightower, Associated Press There has been some early tinkering to lineups, a few hiccups and lots of drama to start the NBA season. None of the league’s final four teams from last season — Boston, Cleveland, Houston, Golden State — look like locks to hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy this time. The addition of Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets’ roster produced more thorns than fruit, and now he is out. In Boston, the Celtics are having early trouble trying to figure out how best to use their overflowing mix of young and veteran talent following the return of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward from injuries. And Cleveland has gotten off to a predictable slow start to the post-LeBron James’ era, but few expected the total collapse by the Cavaliers. However, there is no drama like championship drama and the defending champion Warriors suddenly look more like the cast of a reality series than a harmonious lineup rolling along and vying for a third straight championship. Draymond’s Green public outburst at Kevin Durant during the Warriors’ overtime loss to the Clippers on Nov. 12 lingers. Now there is tension on a team that has managed to remain mostly drama-free during its run. Durant’s impending free agency, Green’s lack of an apology, and Steph Curry’s injury has opened a window for teams. Some of the NBA’s most recent mini-dynasties have dissipated because of infighting. Squabbling between Michael Jordan and Chicago Bulls management at least contributed to their decline after Jordan’s second three-peat and subsequent second retirement in 1999. Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal couldn’t coexist long enough to extend the Los Angeles Lakers’ run of three straight titles from 2000 to 2002. Green has vowed the Warriors will still be there in the end. That remains to be seen. 3'S COMPANY Little guys doing work outside and big men camped out close to the basket is an old-school approach to basketball that’s starting to look as old as James Naismith’s original peach baskets. The NBA needs to send out thank-you cards to the ABA. Everyone digs the long ball. Next year will mark the 40th anniversary of the adoption of the 3-point shot in the league. Over those four decades it’s gone from being one of the handful of innovations carried over from the ABA to a necessity for any player — from guards to seven-footers — wanting to have longevity in the league. During the 2012-13 season, 33 NBA players listed at 6'8" or taller averaged at least one three-point attempt. That number grew to 124 last season. The 2018-19 season is barely two months old, but two teams (Boston and Golden State) have already logged 24 made three-pointers in a game. The record of 25 was set late last season by Cleveland. And in case anyone needed a reminder of the shot’s increased popularity, look no further than Milwaukee’s Brook Lopez. He became the third seven-footer in NBA history to hit eight three-pointers in a game when he did it against Denver last week. “You see the way the game’s trending, it’s definitely moving in that direction,” Lopez said. “I’m just trying to be professional, do my job, try to get my work in. I want to be as good as I can in every possible area of the game.” Lopez said Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer has been supportive of him stepping out beyond the arc. “Regardless if I miss, if I have off-games where I don’t shoot as well, they just tell me” to keep shooting, Lopez said. Other veteran big men around the league are hearing similar refrains. THE WEEK AHEAD — San Antonio at New Orleans, Monday (Tuesday, PHL time): DeMar DeRozan had 26 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 points and 12 rebounds during the Spurs’ win in San Antonio earlier this month. The Pelicans look to return the favor after recovering nicely from a six-game losing skid. — Los Angeles Lakers at Cleveland, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time): In a pre-Turkey Day appetizer, LeBron James returns to face Cleveland for the first time this season following his free agency departure to L.A. — New Orleans at Philadelphia, Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time): The Pelicans get their first crack at the new-look 76ers following their acquisition of Jimmy Butler. — Portland at Golden State, Friday (Saturday, PHL time): The Warriors get a look at one of their chief challengers in the West when they meet the Blazers for the first time this season. ___ AP Sports Writer Genaro Armas in Milwaukee contributed to this report......»»

Climate change: Agri department eyes shift in planting season

  After typhoons ravaged agricultural lands during the third quarter of the year which led for the sector's output to fall, the Department of Agriculture (DA) is now looking to readjust its planting calendar to make the sector less vulnerable to climate change.   Moreover, it's planning to develop new rice farming areas in provinces that are not often hit by weather disturbances to secure the country's food production.   Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piol revealed the agency's plans on his Facebook page and in an earlier interview with reporters, wherein he said that they will now move the harvest season in Northern Luzon -- known as the country's rice ...Keep on reading: Climate change: Agri department eyes shift in planting season.....»»

Developing young QBs in NFL a tricky balancing act

By Dennis Waszak Jr., Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Start them right away? Ease 'em in? Have them sit a whole season? When it comes to developing young quarterbacks in the NFL, it all depends on who you talk to. Some teams think it's best to throw rookie QBs into the fire to learn on the job. Others prefer to gradually work them into the offense. Some say it's more beneficial to have them grab a cap and clipboard and take it all in from the sideline. "I think every position is the same," Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said. "If someone can't handle it mentally, then you don't want to put them on the field, because naturally they'll play slower and be thinking instead of reacting." Sam Darnold clearly passed that test for New York, and the No. 3 overall pick in April was under center to start the season. "If a player shows the athletic ability, the talent and has the mental capacity to handle a gameplan and go into a game and be successful," Bates said, "then he's ready to play." That doesn't mean things have necessarily gone smoothly for the former USC star. Darnold's 14 interceptions lead the league and have contributed to the Jets' 3-6 start. So have his 55.0 percent completion rate and 68.3 quarterback rating, which also rank among the worst in the league. Still, some point to these early struggles as crucial building blocks for the future. "I'm going to continue to learn," Darnold said Sunday after a 13-6 loss at Miami in which he threw four INTs. "There's always lessons to be learned." Of the 32 quarterbacks currently listed as starters for their teams, 12 were under center in Week 1 of their first season. On the flipside, some veteran superstar QBs waited a while before they got their chances. Aaron Rodgers was stuck behind Brett Favre in Green Bay before finally starting in his fourth season. Philip Rivers didn't start with the Chargers until his third year, when Drew Brees went to New Orleans. Even Brees didn't get his first NFL start until his second season. Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Alex Smith weren't Day 1 starters, either. "In an ideal world, it gets to be like Drew, who had a chance to watch a little, or Tom Brady and Aaron," said former quarterback Rich Gannon, the 2002 NFL MVP and now an analyst for CBS Sports and SiriusXM NFL Radio. Patrick Mahomes sat behind Smith in Kansas City until Week 17 as a rookie last year, and now is a leading MVP candidate as one of the NFL's top gunslinger s with a league-leading 29 TD passes for the 8-1 Chiefs. "We knew that Patrick was very talented, but any time that an NFL team goes with a young quarterback, usually it's a very challenging endeavor," Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said. "Sometimes it takes time, several years, but as we've seen, Andy (Reid) had Patrick ready to go Week 1." Gannon thinks the Chiefs provide the perfect blueprint. "Mahomes had a chance to watch a master of his domain for a year," he said. "Alex Smith knew that system inside and out, has great huddle command and leadership skills. Maybe he doesn't throw it like Mahomes does, but this is a guy who was willing to share and help him for that year, and we're seeing the fruits of it now. "That's the best situation you can have." Again, that depends on who you ask. In the past three drafts, 11 quarterbacks were taken in the first round — including Darnold, Cleveland's Baker Mayfield, Buffalo's Josh Allen, Arizona's Josh Rosen and Baltimore's Lamar Jackson this year. Jackson is the only one to not yet start at least one game. Baltimore has Joe Flacco leading the huddle, but Jackson has still been used in the offense and is the Ravens' second-leading rusher. The Browns wanted to have Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick this year, sit and learn behind Tyrod Taylor. But like most plans in Cleveland, it backfired. Taylor got hurt in Week 3 and Mayfield was thrust into the lineup, helping the Browns rally to beat the Jets in a nationally televised game and end a 19-game winless streak. Mayfield has shown poise and promise, but lacks playmakers and is dealing with a coaching change after Hue Jackson was fired. In Buffalo, the Bills weren't anticipating Allen starting in the second week. They were taking what coach Sean McDermott called a "calculated" approach. But after AJ McCarron was traded before the season opener and Nathan Peterman bombed in Week 1, McDermott was left with no choice but to turn to Allen. The rookie has been dealing with a sprained right elbow , and is uncertain to play Sunday against the Jets. "When you draft a quarterback like we did, there's a part of it where you have to say, 'Hey, he's going to play either A, B, or C — early, middle, or late or next year.'" McDermott said. "You have to be OK with all of that." The initial plan in Arizona was to have Rosen learn behind Sam Bradford. All that changed when the veteran was ineffective and benched in favor of the No. 10 overall pick. Rosen took his lumps with some turnover-filled performances. Then, Mike McCoy was fired as the Cardinals' offensive coordinator and Bradford was later cut — leaving the job to Rosen. "His demeanor allows him to have success," new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said. "Quarterbacking in this league is hard and when things go bad, this kid tends to be fine." But, some say too many adverse situations could end up having long-term deleterious effects on a young player. "When you put them in before they're ready, they also get hurt: Josh Allen, Josh Rosen," Gannon said. "The speed of the game is way too fast for them. ... Or they have a bad experience, like what wound up happening with (the Jets') Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, or going back to Ryan Leaf (with the Chargers). They play right away before they are physically or mentally ready or maturity-level ready. They get benched and booed and maybe run out of town, the coach gets fired, and then the next thing, they're on their third or fourth team. They think he will be a savior and he's not ready to play. "How is that being responsible from a coach and ownership standpoint? It's doing a tremendous disservice." Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston and Tennessee' Marcus Mariota started right away after being the top two picks in 2015, but the jury's still out on both. For those who preach patience, 25 of the 32 current QBs started a game at some point in their rookie season. And, several held on to the job from there. Quarterbacks such as the Rams' Jared Goff (No. 1 in 2016) and the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 in 2017) started and struggled as rookies, but benefited from changes in coaching staffs and philosophies and took leaps in their second seasons. So, who's right? Well, all of the above. "There's certainly valuable experience when you stand and watch," McDermott said. "But we all know there's no substitute for the experience when you're actually behind the wheel. There's a lot of value to that." ___ AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and AP Sports Writers Bob Baum, David Ginsburg, Dave Skretta, John Wawrow and Tom Withers contributed......»»

Magic hold on to defeat Spurs, 117-110

By Raul Dominguez, Associated Press SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Aaron Gordon scored 26 points and the Orlando Magic held on to beat the San Antonio Spurs 117-110 on Sunday night (Monday, PHL time) after nearly blowing a 26-point lead with 9 minutes remaining. D.J Augustin added 18 points for Orlando, which scored a season high and hit 12 3-pointers. DeMar DeRozan had 25 points as San Antonio’s four-game winning streak came to an end on the second night of a back-to-back. Orlando snapped a four-game skid, but had to bring its starters back into the game to preserve the victory. The Spurs went on a 25-6 run over 6 minutes to erase the Magic’s 105-79 with 9:02 remaining. Pau Gasol blocked and collected Gordon’s shot and raced downcourt where he was fouled with 7 minutes remaining. Gasol’s hustle led San Antonio coach Popovich to reinsert DeRozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes back into the game despite Orlando leading by 18 points. The Spurs responded with a 9-2 run to pull within 107-96 with 5:28 remaining and forced Magic coach Steve Clifford to take a timeout to slow the momentum. Clifford was forced to take another timeout 2 1/2 minutes later when Bryn Forbes’ 3-pointer cut Orlando’s lead to 111-104. The Magic were able to hang on, preserving their best offensive production of the season. Orlando had lost four straight, including failing to score 100 points in three consecutive games, but jumped out to an early lead. San Antonio’s worst defensive effort of the season came less than 24 hours after their finest in a 109-95 victory against New Orleans. Mills finished with 16 points and Aldridge added 14 for San Antonio. TIP-INS Magic: Orlando entered the game last in the league in scoring at 99.9 points per game as well as field goal percentage at 41.4. ... Jonathon Simmons received a warm ovation upon entering the game late in the first quarter. Simmons, who was listed as questionabl with bruised right wrist, had no points in 18 minutes. ... Jonathan Isaac did not play due to a sprained right ankle. ... Timofey Mozgov missed the game with sore right knee. Spurs: Rudy Gay missed his first game of the season, sitting out due to right heel soreness. ... Jakob Poeltl played 14 minutes, including starting the second half. It was the most minutes Poeltl has played since logging 13 minutes against Indiana on Oct. 24. UP NEXT Magic: Host Cleveland on Monday night. Spurs: At Miami on Wednesday night.  .....»»

PBA: The story behind Phelps uber-limited LeBrons

Phoenix import Eugene Phelps is quite the player and character. He's a walking bucket, capable of scoring up to 50 points with an additional 20 rebounds or so. His nickname is El Destructor and wears P30,000 Gucci headbands to games while scoring 50. [Related: PBA: Phelps drops a cool 50 points in P30,000 headband] Yep, Phelps is quite the player and character. Recently, Phelps' character has been reflected in his footwear. El Destructor regularly wears heat on his feet and in the current 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, he's been spotted wearing gems like the Nike Kyrie 3 Mamba Mentality. However, the best shoe he pulled out so far has to be the special Nike LeBron 11 "2K14" which he wore for a couple of games in the season-ending joust. The flashy animal-printed shoe was releaed a couple of years back when LeBron James, then with the Miami Heat, graced the cover of the popular basketball video game. Limited to only 2,014 pairs, players had to earn milestones in-game in order to have a chance to purchase the shoes. Overall, about 80 hours was needed in order to complete all tasks. Asked about his uber-limited pair, Phelps told ABS-CBN Sports that he got his 2K14s off the secondary market. Considering he plays actual basketball, he probably didn't have much time playing simulated ball when he's out there doing the real thing. "2014 I think because LeBron was on the NBA [2K] cover. I collect shoes at home and then obviously on the court. I just like shoes," Phelps told ABS-CBN Sports. "I bought them off of eBay I think for like $350 (PHP 19,000) so I got lucky on those," he added. Phelps wears a size 14 and his size is currently listed at $400 (PHP 22,000) at StockX with the last sale going for $600 (P33,000). There's no size 14 listed at Flight Club but pairs at size 13 and 15 are both listed for $600 each. El Destructor certainly got lucky. He's been lucky on-court too while wearing his 2K14s and while he went 1-1 in them, he dropped his second 50-ball this conference while rocking his royal pair. He was supposed to wear them again Wednesday but he took them off. He struggled for only 18 points after he switched to an older pair of Hyperdunks. "First time I wore them I had 50. And then the second time I had 37. But the gym it felt weird, it kept on slipping in the first half so I had to switch them up," Phelps said. A sneakerhead through and through, Phelps is not afraid to wear prized pairs on court. El Destructor mentioned that he once destroyed a pair of Nike Kobe 6 "Grinch" on court and he had to prematurely retire them. The original Kobe Grinch of course, is widely regarded as the best Kobe release from Nike of all time. Those go for anywhere from $900 (PHP 49,500) to over $1,000 (PHP 55,000) in Phelps' size. "My favorites? I played with the Grinches, the Kobe Grinches my first game but they ripped. So I had to throw those away," Phelps said. "I just threw them in my closet because the whole sole is ripped. But I guess I can get them fixed and glued. But if I get them glued obviously I won't play in them again because they might rip again. I'll probably clean them, get them glued together, and walk in them or something," he added. With Phoenix in the playoffs and targeting a breakthrough semifinals appearance in the PBA, Phelps is looking forward to wearing more heat on court. It would be best to start paying attention. "I'll probably get some Kyries or Jordans for the semis [if we make it] but my size is kinda hard to find out here [in Manila]. So probably I'll buy from home and get them shipped. I'll look online to see what I can find. If I can find some heat, I'll get some heat for sure," he said. "I'll probably have some more heat for y'all if we go to the semis. I got heat for y'all," Phelps added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

  With the Christmas season fast approaching, stores and restaurants seem to be doubling their efforts to draw more customers. In the malls, many stores are selling their goods at big discounts, while restaurants are creating new, inventive dishes.   The all-time favorite sisig, for instance, has metamorphosed from a dish of pig's jowls to one of chopped lechon or as a vegetarian alternative with mushrooms, tofu and onions.   Pizza Hut has a Hawaiian meaty supreme pizza with a thick, heavy crust that's ostensibly cheesy, but hides within its folds rolls of sausages. For the carnivorous, this must be like meat heaven.   On the bakers' front, th...Keep on reading: The search for German currywurst yields soft pretzels.....»»
