Ricky’s ‘nerve-wracking proposal’ for same-sex partner

Over a year after Ricky Martin announced his engagement to partner, Jwan Yosef, the pop star revealed that he's now a married man. "I'm a husband, but we're doing a heavy party in a couple of months. We exchanged vows...signed all the papers that we needed to sign---prenups and everything," he told E! News in a recent interview. Jwan is a conceptual artist; Ricky, an avid collector. "I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. Then, I contacted him. I had no idea what he looked like. Then I saw him, and I was like, yeah.

Fil-Am Sedrick Barefield leads the way as Utah upsets Remy Martin and Arizona State

Filipino-American Sedrick Barefield's team-high 17 points led the University of Utah Runnin' Utes to another close shave over fellow Fil-Am Remy Martin and the #21 Arizona St. Sun Devils in overtime, 80-77, at the Arizona State University Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe. Barefield wrote the final sentence of the game as he nailed a clutch free throw that put the Utes ahead by three, with 3.0 seconds left in overtime. However, the guard missed his second, which left an opportunity for Arizona State to tie but Sun Devil Trae Holder missed the game-tying heave as time expired. The 6'1" Barefield was clutch throughout the hotly-contested game, nailing a booming triple to knot things up at 69, with 5.0 seconds left in regulation. Barefield finished the game with 17 markers, including a perfect four out of four clip from downtown, along with two rebounds and two assists.  The six-footer Martin, who is part of the Gilas Pilipinas pool for the 2023 FIBA World Cup, meanwhile ended up with 10 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. Martin's teammate Holder was the game's top scorer with 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 blocks.  Utah ties the season series with Arizona St., with the Sun Devils escaping the previous match-up with an 80-77 win in Utah. The unranked Utes' locker room was in pandemonium after taking down the 21st ranked college team in the United States.

PBA: Magic BONOt Ken always ready to heed coach Norman s call

Meralco Bolt bigman Ken Bono says that he is always ready whenever the need arises for the team. The burly Bono scored in a game for the very first time this season, and scored ten big points albeit in a loss against the top-seeded Blackwater Elite at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. Per PBA head statistician Fidel Mangonon III, it is the highest scoring output the Adamson legend and former UAAP MVP has posted in four seasons. Ken Bono ties the game at 88 for Meralco! Blackwater calls time. 1:05 left in the 4th. #PBA2018 • @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/oIMX8LpWRV — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) October 5, 2018 Despite even not playing for the Bolts in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, Bono assured everyone that he is always physically ready, anytime that coach Norman Black calls him. This time, it was Cliff Hodge's finger injury that led Bono to the playing court, putting up a much-needed offensive display in almost 11 minutes of playing time, including a game-tying jumper with 1:05 left in the game.  "Always ready lang naman ako pag binunot ako ni coach. Atsaka importante kasi sa amin ang manalo. Kasi nasa bottom kami ng standing. Mas masaya sana kung nanalo kami," the center said after the game. However, there was a downside in Bono's insertion to the game on the defensive end, which the veteran coach explained.  "The negative is, on the other aside, we had a hard time defending pick and rolls.  But on the offensive end, he really gave us an opportunity to be able to make some outside shots. It’s kinda give and take. Offensively, he did a great job and defensively, we had a little bit of a problem in guarding pick and rolls when Cliff Hodge came out with injury." Just in case the need arises once again, Bono says he is very much ready for the call. "Ako naman, ready naman ako parati. Nagpapakondisyon naman ako. In case na bunutin ako ni coach, ready naman ako pag tinawag."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

First-ever Metro Manila Inter-Village League season launched

Residents from different villages across National Capital Region (NCR) flocked to the Kerry Sports Center in Bonifacio Global City to witness the opening of the inaugural Metro Manila Inter-Village League last Saturday, Aug. 4.  The newly-launched league of PLDT Home Fibr will feature 59 teams spread across two age groups, the under-29 and the 30-and-above brackets. Key villages throughout Metro Manila sent representatives to one of the biggest village leagues yet. Subdivisions and villages such as Ayala Heights and Philam Homes in the north; Ayala Alabang in the south; Valle Verde in the east; and Lexington Garden in the west will all be fighting for basketball supremacy, as well as cash prizes and a full makeover of their local basketball court. PLDT Home Fibr formally launched the league with some of the best and brightest in the local basketball scene today, including players from the PBA and the UAAP. TNT Katropa's Terrence Romeo, Kelly Williams, Anthony Semerad and Roger Pogoy along with Meralco Bolts such as Ranidel de Ocampo, Chris Newsome and Nico Salva graced the opening ceremonies. The event was also graced by members of the defending UAAP men's basketball champions and Jones Cup fourth-placers Ateneo Blue Eagles, who were represened by Thirdy Ravena, Isaac Go, twins Matt and Mike Nieto along with their coach Tab Baldwin. Adding excitement to the launch was a slam dunk contest with FIBA 3x3 slam dunk contest participant David Carlos, Darwin Cantong, and former UP Maroon Rob Ricafort vying for a PHP 40,000 cash prize. Carlos wowed the crowd as he took home the top prize with a heart-stopping windmill jam. The professional dunker added to the degree of difficulty of after catching the ball from a man riding the back of another man, then swooping through the air for the right-handed finish. The launch of the basketball tournament wouldn't be complete without a game and the day was capped off by the match-up between two villages from the south: Multinational and Tahanan Village. Games had already started last July 21 and the game at the Kerry Sports Arena will be counted as part of the regular season schedule. Multinational came out on top in a back-and-forth affair, 81-79, after Ricky Lopez swished the jumper from the baseline with 2.6 seconds left in the game to cap off the comeback bid in the fourth quarter. Raul Reynoso of Tahanan's heroics was nullfied after nailing his only three-pointer of the game to knot things up at 79 with about 11 ticks left. Mike Bernal led Multinational with 22 points while Jay Valdez paced Tahanan with 21. The league will run through the next two months before the post-season in October. The tournament comes after the formal partnership of PLDT with the NBA in launching NBA League Pass on the platform, where users can enjoy the NBA's streaming service for 50 pesos a day. The tournament’s games will run every weekend. Schedules will be posted in PLDT Home’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PLDTHome.

Manny Pacquiao looking at December fight

Newly-crowned WBA (Regular) Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao is looking at another fight before the end of 2018. Whether it be a rematch with Jeff Horn, or against other welterweight titans such as former sparring partner Amir Khan, Terence Crawford, or Vasyl Lomachenko, the only eight-division world champion is still unsure of who will he face next in the squared circle. He said in an interview at the ABS-CBN Main Building after his "It's Showtime" appearance that he is looking for another match by December 2. Sen. @mannypacquiao looking at a Dec. 2 fight date, no opponent yet. He also talks about his newly-diagnosed heart condition. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/sVB3hoQYZ1 — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) July 24, 2018 Despite a diagnosed 'inborn heart problem' after complaining of breathing difficulties before his championship fight with then title-holder Lucas Matthysse, he assured the public that he just underwent a routine procedure and that there's nothing to be alarmed about his condition. "Nag-ECG kami, may nakita ang doktor. So kailangan magpatingin para sigurado na walang problema. Wala namang problema (kay Jinkee) dahil yung doktor naman pag-check up sa akin tinignan yung puso ko, wala namang problema. Healthy naman," the lawmaker said. The 39-year old was even able to insert a cheesy pick-up line for his wife, joking about the medical procedure. "Maganda rin yun noong tinignan yung puso ko, kung ano talaga nasa puso, si Jinkee talaga." He was also satisfied at his MP Promotions' handling of the fight, calling the event successful in promoting and staging the fight card, which saw four championship bouts, though just like any first-time experience, more needs to be polished. "Marami lang mga pagkukulang pero correctable naman sa susunod." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Chinese leader arrives for Africa visit as US interest wanes

DAKAR, Senegal --- Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Africa on Saturday on a four-nation visit seeking deeper military and economic ties while his rival in a bitter trade war, the Trump administration, shows little interest in the world's second most populous continent. This is Xi's first trip abroad since he was appointed to a second term in March with term limits removed, allowing him to rule for as long as he wants. That rang familiar to some of Africa's long-entrenched leaders. China is already Africa's largest trading partner, and it opened its first military base on the continent last year in the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti, which this month launched a China-b...Keep on reading: Chinese leader arrives for Africa visit as US interest wanes.....»»
