Vigan City all set for Palarong Pambansa in April

Vigan City is ready to roll out the red carpet for the more than 15,000 delegates from the country’s 17 regions expected to converge in the Ilocos Sur capital for this year’s hosting of the Palarong Pambansa next month. Department of Education Undersecretary Tonisito Umali made the pronouncement on behalf of the provincial government after personally inspecting the different venues where the various sports events for the April 15-21 meet will be held. “Vigan is definitely ready. The province hosted a regional qualifier of the Batang Pinoy last year and that shows its readiness to stage such big multi-sports event such as the Palaro,” said Umali during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Tapa King Restaurant at Farmers Market in Cubao on Tuesday. “We had our final technical conference meeting a couple of weeks ago para tingnan sa huling pagkakataon yung preparation ng lalawigan. And no doubt, the facilities are of international standards. Handang-handa na sila,” said the Deped official. “Overall, I would say Vigan, Ilocos Sur is definitely ready.” Umali said DepEd expects the official athlete-delegates to be at around 12,000 competing in 21 regular sports events featured in the secondary level and 15 in the elementary side of the event for student-athletes 18-year-old-and-below. Perennial champion National Capital Region is again favored to win the overall title this year, although Umali noted the emerging rivalry between Calabarzon/Southern Tagalog and Western Visayas regions, which engaged in a close-battle for runner-up finish in the 2017 edition of the annual event held in Antique. In addition, Negros Island Region, which placed fourth last year, has now been made part of Regions 6 (Negros Occidental - Western Visayas) and 7 (Negros Oriental - Central Visayas). “So we’ll have to see ano ang effect pag ibinalik ulit as Regions 6 and 7 yung Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental,” added Umali in the session presented by San Miguel Corp., Tapa King, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. DepEd will continue to hold the demo sports of pencak silat, aero gymnastics, and dance sports, the same thing with the special Para events in aquatics, track and field, bocce, and goal ball. Being summer season, Umali said the Palaro will observe the same practice of not holding games from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “All games to be held during that time are indoor events,” said the government official. There will also be water dispensers stationed at the different sports venues for both athletes and officials, medical ambulances, doctors, and nurses are also on standby in both the playing court and billeting quarters, as well as police personnel. Umali also said the host province will be providing transportation unit for those coming from the Visayas and Mindanao regions which will carry them all the way to Vigan. “This is the first time the host LGU will shoulder transportation means or cost by providing buses to our athletes from Mindanao and the Visayas coming from a drop-off point lang. And lahat sila dadalhin sa Vigan, Ilocos Sur ng libre,” he said......»»

Volleybelle Michele Gumabao wins Bb. Pilipinas-Globe 2018 crown

Michele Gumabao's Cinderella run has ended with her being crowned as Miss Philippines-Globe Monday morning during the coronation at the Big Dome. Coming into the contest, the 5'9" volleybelle had no prior experience in beauty pageants, but has been vocal about being eager to prove doubters wrong. Indeed, Gumabao has done just that, claiming one of the six titles in the Philippines' most prestigious beauty pageant. Aside from the crown, the 25-year-old also won the special Miss Cream Silk award. Gumabao made a lot of buzz in the weeks leading up to the coronation night, all while making an important statement about athletes being multi-dimensional individuals. As Binibini #19, Gumabao impressed audiences with her straightforward manner of answering interviews and free-spirited personality that she has possessed since her playing days with De La Salle University in the UAAP. The volleybelle out of Quezon City is currently an assistant coach for the all-female tactical crew of Adamson University's women's volleyball team, and she is currently signed to the Creamline Cool Smashers in the Premier Volleyball League.  Gumabao's winning tradition is well-documented. As a part of the UAAP powerhouse DLSU Lady Spikers and the PVL Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors, she has won numerous titles, and with her win in the Bb.

Coach Tim angry at himself, real proud of his players

Ginebra’s campaign in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup has come to a close. With no answers for three-time defending champion San Miguel, the Gin Kings fell in the best-of-seven semifinals, 1-4. Still, the crowd favorites come away from this series with their heads held high – just like head coach Tim Cone told them to. “Sabi niya sa amin, he was proud of us. Sa dami ng pinagdaanan namin this conference, we still fought ‘til the end,” Japeth Aguilar told reporters post-game. He then continued, “’Di naman kami nagkulang. Malakas lang talaga ang San Miguel.” Aguilar mentioned how, throughout the conference, they played with key cogs Joe Devance, Sol Mercado, and Greg Slaughter sidelined for spells. In the eyes of Cone, that kind of fight merits much credit. As he put it, “Japeth really stepped up and we also got great performances from Prince (Caperal) and Raymond (Aguilar). Sol (Mercado) played real well tonight and Scottie (Thompson) was just incredible all series long.” Thompson had his second career triple-double in the series-ending Game 5 while Caperal and the two Aguilars did an admirable job in filling up for the injured Slaughter. Still, San Miguel proved to be too much for majority of the series – and the multi-titled mentor was the first one to take responsibility for letting it happen. “I’m angry that I didn’t do enough for them. I’m angry that I couldn’t win the games for them,” he said. He then continued, “I’ll be angry at myself and I’ll be real proud of our guys.” For now, Ginebra will just lick its wounds and head into the next conference hungrier. “Sana ma-maintain namin iyong health ng bawat isa. We're looking forward to Justin Brownlee coming back and ayun, we'll take a break muna and just look forward for the next conference,” Aguilar remarked. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UAAP Softball Finals: Adamson overpowers UST to force do-or-die

Seven-time defending champions Adamson Lady Falcons showed why they have the vise grip over the tournament with an 8-5 victory over the UST Tigresses in Game 2 of the UAAP Season 80 Softball Finals at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium Friday morning. With the win, they force a do-or-die Game 3 against UST, whom they have faced for the third straight season. The Lady Falcons used an explosive sixth inning, scoring five runs with two outs, to break the tie against a UST team that drew first blood. Krisha Cantor broke the deadlock as she was sent by Leslie Benabaye with an RBI single. Riezel Calumbres and Benabaye then both completed the diamond courtesy of a Delyrose Covarrubias 2-RBI-double. Covarrubias and Edna Severino then added fuel to the fire that was Adamson's offense, from an 2-RBI-double by Flor Pabiania to extend the lead to five runs, 8-5, a far cry from their five hits in Game 1. Blu Girls and Adamson head coach Ana Santiago knew that the sixth inning was to be their biggest possession, and encouraged her wards to score, no matter the circumstance. "Yun yung sinasabi ko sa kanila, pag naka-score tayo sa six innings, panalo tayo. Naging inspiration nila yung sinabi ko. Si Rusia kanina, back-to-back strikeout. Sabi ko sa kanya, 'kailan ka lalaban?' Sinagot niya, 'Ngayon na, coach'. Inasahan ko yun at nag-deliver siya." UST actually was in the driver seat in the opening moments of the game, with CJ Roa nailing a 3-run homer that put UST ahead in the bottom of the first inning, 3-0. The defending champions then were able to slowly chip off the Tigresses' lead, with runs from Jeanette Rusia and Cantor, sent home by Calumbres and Benabaye, respectively. UST then tried to trim the lead with two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, but it was all but over for them. Santiago admits that her team was rattled after the home run, but motivated her players by using their minds and focus on the bigger picture. "Isipin mo sa ganitong level ng play papaluan ka ng ganun tapos yung kalaban namin yung pitcher na hindi namin mapaluan. Pero yung mga bata hindi pumayag na hindi kami lalaban. Gusto talaga nila na mag-square one kami," the multi-titled coach said. "Nung naramdaman ko yun, kahit mag-score sila ng three runs, naniwala sila na kanila ito. Walang imposible, yun yung power of mind." Game 3 for all the marbles will be on Tuesday, 9 a.m., at the same venue.

'We ll take our chances for a long series' - Yeng Guiao

NLEX Road Warriors head coach Yeng Guiao says that it will be do-or-die for them as they head in to Game 4 against the Magnolia Hotshots. The Road Warriors, who drop their second straight game after taking Game 1 against Magnolia, will treat Friday's contest as a make-or-break affair, and hope for the best that they could extend the series to at least six games. "Our goal is to prolong the series. On Friday, it's a must win for us, that's a crucial game. Every win for us, it prolongs this series. Siguro, we'll take our chances with a long series," Guiao said after the game. On an up-and-down contest that featured 31 lead changes and 13 ties, the former Rain or Shine coach lamented the team's collapse midway through the fourth quarter, in which they saw the veteran Hotshot squad ride the back of big man Ian Sangalang for a lead that they would not relinquish until the final buzzer. "For this game, we felt we just lost on breaks. There were some crucial moments in the last 4-5 minutes when we could have made some big plays, but actually, the breaks favored the other team." In terms of their defense, Guiao also regretted his team's effort, because they allowed their opponents to 52.4-percent accuracy from downtown on an 11/21 shooting clip. The multi-titled coach added that Ian Sangalang's 24-point performance certainly did not help their cause, which led to Magnolia hitting timely field goals in the final stretch of the game. "We fought hard, but again the breaks did not fall on our side. But we will fight harder on Friday, we know that's a make or break game for us." -- Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.....»»

These Are the Celebrities Who Still Have Tattoos of Their Exes

I've always been skeptical of people who get tattoos that relate to their significant others. It can be names, their face, a symbol, or even their anniversary date.

So today, we're looking at both sides with celebrity tattoos---take note that many of them have broken up too. They range from small and subtle to in-your-face sizes. Let's check them out, shall we?
