LOOK: Jackie Forster’s heartwarming message to Kobe Paras on his 21st birthday

It may already be 21 years since Jackie Forster gave birth to son Kobe Paras, but for her, it feels like it only happened yesterday. The actress took a trip down memory lane in celebration of his 21st birthday, as seen in her Instagram post on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Her video showed Paras as a wide-eyed baby, along with several photos of them together, and a moment where Paras got a puppy as a gift. And like any mom, Forster imparted some words of wisdom for her son. She said that by the time he has a child of his own, and has that "burning butterfly sensation" of when he/she does something, he will realize that it is the same feeling she felt for him during that age.

National 3x3 team will not be at the mercy of ball clubs says chief backer

The team Chooks-to-Go is trying to build will be on-call pretty much anytime as long as it's about representing the Philippines in international competitions. The chief Gilas backer announced Tuesday that it's working on creating a full-time national 3x3 team with the goal of qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. [Related: Plan to form dedicated 3x3 national team already in motion] And when Chooks says full-time national team, it means full-time national team. In light with the persisting issue of Gilas having trouble securing players to play in international tournaments, this dedicated 3x3 team will have no such problems as assured by Chooks' big boss himself. "The whole point of our investment sa sports, hindi lang dahil mahal namin ang basketball. Our primary agenda is to restore our spirit of nationalism na nawala na. If you talk to the UAAP, to the pro leagues, parang hindi na nahihiya yung mga tao ngayon to refuse to represent the country," Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascarinas said. "Yung bang local tournament ng collegiate o sa pro is more important than to serve the country? We keep on compromising. Yung compromise natin is hindi na nahihiya yung mga leaders natin to refuse to serve the country. We will be a nation of pasaway if magtuloy pa ito," he added. In a strong message, Mascarinas says he wants to change that culture. In essense he doesn't want the national team to be at the mercy of ball clubs which is why PBA players might not see action in the 3x3 national team, which has Kobe Paras for the time being. "I really take personal offense na ang lalakas ng loob nila na magpaalam ka. Narinig lang nila that we need to send representatives, sana mag-offer sila ng available na player. Pero hindi nangyayari yun. We want to change that culture," Mascarinas said. "We want to full-time engagement. Sa tingin ko if they are full-time PBA players, we will be at the mercy of the clubs again," he added. The national 3x3 team backed by Chooks-to-Go is set to embark on a grand plan of qualifying to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. To complete the pool of players, there will be a series of tournaments and tryouts all across the country. "This is a good opportunity for everybody. Yung tryouts na ito, even yung out-of-school youth in the barangay-level, puwede sila mag-try out. Itong programa na ito will bring out the best among our dreamers," Mascarinas said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Andre Paras’ biggest frustration in life

Andre Paras is courteous and good-natured, even when talking about issues that make him uncomfortable and guarded---like his much-speculated relationship with his estranged mom, Jackie Forster. He says he sees why people are curious about that tabloid-fodder aspect of his life, but that doesn't mean they can make him talk lengthily about it. "Since I don't discuss it openly, I don't see why they expect me to explain something that doesn't concern them," he points out. "So, I just tell them that maybe in time, [things will work out]. But if that ever happens, why should I broadcast it to the whole world? But, I understand why it interests them.

Red Sox beat Astros 10-3, avoid elimination in ALDS Game 3

em>By Jimmy Golen, Associated Press /em> BOSTON (AP) — David Price pitched four scoreless innings of relief after another Boston starter faltered, and 20-year-old Rafael Devers connected for a key homer as the Red Sox beat the Houston Astros 10-3 on Sunday to stave off elimination in Game 3 of the AL Division Series. After losses in the first two games left the Red Sox hoping to avoid a sweep, Hanley Ramirez cheered up the Fenway Park crowd by waving a “Believe in Boston” flag during introductions. He then delivered four hits and three RBIs to help the Red Sox snap a five-game postseason losing streak. Mitch Moreland had three hits and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his first postseason homer, a three-run shot in a six-run seventh that helped Boston pull away. Game 4 is Monday in Boston. Houston right-hander Charlie Morton is expected to start against reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello. After winning each of the first two games 8-2, the Astros took a first-inning lead for the third straight game. Up 3-0 with two on and one out in the second, Joe Kelly relieved Doug Fister and retired George Springer before Josh Reddick hit a long fly ball to right field that Mookie Betts caught at the top of the short wall to end the inning. Kelly pitched the third and then Price turned in his seventh straight scoreless appearance since going to the bullpen in September after missing most of the season with left elbow problems. Astros starter Brad Peacock escaped the second inning with a 3-1 lead despite loading the bases with nobody out, but he ran into bigger trouble in the third. After Peacock struck out Boston’s No. 3 and 4 hitters, Andrew Benintendi and Mookie Betts, Moreland doubled and scored on Ramirez’s line drive over left fielder Marwin Gonzalez’s outstretched glove. Francisco Liriano gave up Devers’ two-run homer to right that gave Boston a 4-3 lead — its first in 44 postseason innings dating to Game 1 of the 2016 ALDS. Devers, who turns 21 on Oct. 24, is the youngest Red Sox player to homer in the postseason and one of only six players in major league history to hit a postseason home run before their 21st birthday. Ramirez drove in two more runs in a six-run seventh inning highlighted by Bradley’s homer that bounced off Reddick’s glove and into the stands behind the Pesky Pole. Price allowed four hits and a walk. He exchanged words with Gonzalez after striking him out with a 95 mph fastball to end the seventh, and home plate umpire Ted Barrett walked toward the Red Sox dugout with catcher Sandy Leon to calm things down. Peacock allowed three runs and six hits in 2 2/3 innings. Liriano got just one out while allowing one run and two hits for the Astros, who have never swept a postseason series. strong>TRAINER’S ROOM /strong> Houston reliever Lance McCullers took a hard comebacker off his ankle in the fourth, but needed only one warmup pitch to test it and stay in the game. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Astros: /strong> /em> Morton was 14-7 with a 3.62 ERA in the regular season. em> strong>Red Sox: /strong> /em> A year after leading the league with 22 wins and winning the Cy Young Award, Porcello had a 4.65 ERA and a league-leading 17 losses. .....»»

Kobe Paras: It ll be fun to face Ateneo in the Finals

Incoming Fighting Maroon Kobe Paras said that it would be fun to see the University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University clash once again in the championship series of the UAAP. However, Paras then added that the Blue Eagles should open their doors, close the main thoroughfare and declare the bonfire on Saturday as a bond between the adjacent higher institutions of learning.  "Ateneo, sama mo naman kaming mga Iskolar ng Bayan. Because basketball brings us together. So why don't just have a bonfire of UP and Ateneo together? Sa lahat ng Fathers ng Ateneo, mahal ko kayo. #OneBigFight #UPFight. Sarado natin yung buong Katipunan. Throw a big party," the 21-year old said in an interview with Mico Halili on 'The Score'. Kidding aside, Paras admitted that it 'pissed him off' that he was not able to play for the Maroons this year, who made a surprise run to the UAAP Season 81 Finals. However, he says he looks forward to playing with UAAP Season 80 Mythical Five member Ricci Rivero in leading the squad perhaps back to the Finals once again, and make sure to make the Iskolar ng Bayan proud of their exploits. "I didn't really have to be a part of [the magical season]. But something inside me that people were talking about is why UP was going to the Final Four is because of me and Ricci," he shared. "Everytime people say that to me, I tell them, don't focus on me, focus on the present. Focus on Season 81. My guys really did some big things and I'm proud of them. Not have one, but Ateneo deserved the championship this year." Paras also talked about his haters and how he deals with them everyday. "You just got to live your life. Whatever you do, people are going to respond in a negative or positive way. Do something that makes you happy." See the rest of the interview below:.....»»

UAAP: Juan GDL s promise for next year: UP will be in the Finals

Juan Gomez de Liano was a man of his word in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. In the offseason, he said that the University of the Philippines would end its 21-year playoff drought. On November 14, 2018, that came true as the Fighting Maroons booked a ticket to the Final Four as the third-seed. “I promised ever since offseason na we’re gonna make the Final Four. Here we are,” he said then. They didn’t stop from there and made a run to the Finals which was a pleasant surprise for just about everybody. Only, once there, State U ran into a wall named Ateneo de Manila University which swept them for back-to-back championships. First Finals appearance, first Finals loss. Fo sho, GDL brothers @javigdl22 and @juan_swish9 will only be better from this. #UAAPSeason81 pic.twitter.com/CMV0JH30rh — Normie Riego (@riegogogo) Disyembre 5, 2018 Though that video didn’t look like it, Juan GDL remained upbeat about the future for UP. So much so that he was ready and raring for a new promise. Asked about their prospects for next year, he answered, full of confidence as always, “UP will be in the Finals, definitely.” It’s difficult to doubt the Mythical selection as, even with the graduation of team captain Paul Desiderio, the Fighting Maroons remain stacked for foreseeable future as flanking him are still Season MVP Bright Akhuetie, kuya Javi GDL, Will Gozum, and Jun Manzo. More than that, they will also be welcoming with open arms a pair of Gilas cadets in Ricci Rivero and Kobe Paras. “We’ll be good. I think we’ll be good,” Juan GDL said. Of course, that is never a given and the all-around playmaker said State U will still have to work hard to live up to its billing. “With Ricci and Kobe, yeah. One thing we gotta do is how to jell together, that’s the most important thing,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UP titos Ronnie Magsanoc, Benjie Paras congratulate '16Strong

Gone are the days that Ronnie Magsanoc, Benjie Paras, Eric Altamirano and Joey Guanio are the only benchmarks of University of the Philippines basketball greatness. In the UAAP Season 81, Paul Desiderio, Bright Akhuetie, Juan Gomez de Liano and the rest of the modern day Fighting Maroons made history by making it back in the Final Four since 1997 and the Finals since 1986. Now, just spectators and UP titos, both Magsanoc and Paras just can't help but feel very proud of the achievement. "Doon palang sa makarating sa Final Four yung manalo pa lang sa La Salle, very happy saka very proud sa nagawa ng mga bata sa kanilang Coach Bo [Perasol], sa lahat ng sakripisyo nila, sa lahat ng mga tumulong, naramdaman mo na nagbunga," said Magsanoc, "It was the realization na they were in the right direction saka natutuwa ako na nabuhay yung pride sa community." "Congratulations to Coach Bo, his coaching staff, his players na nagpakahirap para dito. We're here, we are still here to support in other ways," chipped in Paras. If the two had it their way, they would not want any exposure anymore as the 1986 champions thinking that this year is no longer their time. They said that this is the #16Strong's time. But when ABS-CBN Sports pressed them for some sort of reaction or message regarding this year's splendid run of the Maroons, they tipped their hats off to two entities: the coaching staff and the UP community. "[Hindi na ako nagulat sa dami ng tao.] Expected na yan na once pumasok sa Final Four ang UP, or any other team, pag pumasok yun, talagang buhos lahat ng support and for that team to win again and in the Finals," Paras said. "More than gulat eh natutuwa talaga ako para sa mga players kasi you see people coming together for them. Maski naman noon, mayroon naman talaga na mga loyal fans pero ito kasi it has bridged three decades of different generations eh," Magsanoc added. "The coaching staff has done an outstanding job from the players na tinatawag na 16 Strong, whatever happens here we will be very proud of the Fighting Maroons so nagpapasalamat kami kasi they have put the fight back in the Maroons after a long time," Magsanoc said. Season 81 was a year of rewriting history for the Fighting Maroons - Final Four, Finals, MVP. With that, both UP legends expressed that against Ateneo de Manila University, win or lose, the #16Strong are legends. "Whatever happens in the series, I think they have cemented themselves sa legacy ng school, nung sport, sa UAAP. Job well done for Coach Bo and the Fighting Maroons including the staff," Magsanoc shared. This year proved that UP basketball is no longer just about Magsanoc, Paras, Altamirano, and Guanio. They are now joined by names like Desiderio, Akhuetie, and Gomez de Liano. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»
