Barriga kulang sa experience, kaya natalo

MANILA, Philippine – Naniniwala ang mga analysts na natalo si Mark Barriga kay WBO world light flyweight champion Jonathan Gonzalez dahil kulang ito sa maraming laban at walang may kalidad na nakasagupa. Si Barriga, 29, ay huminto sa halos tatlong taong pahinga mula sa propesyonal na boksing matapos siyang makaranas ng split decision loss sa […] The post Barriga kulang sa experience, kaya natalo appeared first on REMATE ONLINE......»»

Intal considers semis win over Thais in SEA Games better than UAAP titles

Winning three titles in the UAAP is already an incredible feat. But for Ateneo de Manila University product Rex Intal, those college championships pale in comparison with the ecstasy he felt when the Philippine national men’s volleyball team toppled powerhouse Thailand in the semifinals of the 30th Southeast Asian Games last year. [Related story: SEA GAMES: PHI men's volleyball team advances to the gold medal round] A member of the Nationals who captured a historic silver medal in the biennial meet, Intal considers their thrilling come-from-behind win that dethroned Thailand in the knockout semis as the most memorable game he has ever played in.    “For me it was one of the best games talaga na nalaruan ko. Not the best performance pero best games na most unforgettable,” said Intal in his appearance on Volleyball DNA hosted by Anton Roxas and Denden Lazaro. “Actually most unforgettable game na talaga.” The former Blue Eagle middle went as far as saying that the victory over the Thais, which was watched by an electric crowd inside the PhilSports Arena last December, even topped the three titles he had while playing for Ateneo.   “Naramdaman ko talaga na may tumalo na sa first, second and third UAAP championships. Sorry UAAP pero iba ‘yung SEA Games na naramdaman ko. Iba ang naramdaman ko nu’ng umabot kami ng Finals,” said Intal, who with PHI squad teammates Marck Espejo and Ish Polvorosa led the Blue Eagles to a UAAP grand slam from Season 77 to 79.   “Individually ah, hindi 'yung combined na three UAAP championships,” cleared Intal. “Siguro kapag combined medyo same.” The Nationals faced top seed Thailand, which ruled the previous four editions, on December 8 in the crossover semis attended by a 6,700-strong crowd.   The experience of playing in front of the home crowd in an all-important game that time was a surreal feeling according to Intal. “Grabe ang experience na ‘yun. Ang saya maglaro nu’ng time na ‘yun kasi first time ‘yung buong crowd hindi hiwalay,” said Intal of the atmosphere inside the venue compared to what he’s used while playing in the UAAP. “Lahat nagtsi-cheer talaga. In front of the home crowd ang sarap maglaro sa crowd na ‘yun,” he added. “Isa ‘yun sa di ko makakalimutan na experience sa buong buhay ko.” It was a dramatic win for the Nationals as they came back from a 1-2 deficit and a scary 21-24 hole in the fourth set to upset Thailand in five sets.   “Nu’ng nanalo kami nung napalo na ni Bryan ang bola sigawan na kami nun,” recalled Intal, who scored six points in the match playing in four sets. “’Di kami makapaniwala. As in lahat ng boses na mayroon kami kailangan naming ilabas.” “Totoo pala na kailangan mong kurutin yung sarili mo, ‘Totoo ba ‘to? Totoo ba ‘to?’” he added. “’Yung inisip ko nun ay ‘di ‘yung natalo namin ang Thailand. Ang naisip ko was may medal na kami.” That win assured the Philippines of a silver medal for the first time since its runner-up finish in the 1977 SEA Games in Malaysia and a rematch against group stage tormentors Indonesia. The Indonesians were too much for the inexperienced Filipinos as the host team yielded in straight sets. But still, although the Nationals fell short in the gold medal round for Intal the whole SEA Games experience especially their conquest of Thailand will always be on the top of his list.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Sermon led to Arwind making Coach Yeng his 'ninong'

It's no secret that coach Yeng Guiao is a straight shooter. The current NLEX mentor is one of the fiercest coaches in the PBA ever and he's not afraid to let you know how he feels whether you're an opponent or a league official. Even his own players are not safe from his tongue lashings. Arwind Santos got his signature coach Yeng moment over a decade ago when he played for Guiao's Powerade-Pilipinas national team that saw action in the 2009 FIBA-Asia Championships.  "Natalo kami, sa dugout nagalit si coach Yeng. Sabi niya sakin,  'Ikaw Arwind [expletives],'" Santos recalled during a PBA Kamustahan episode. "Gusto ko na umuwi sa Pilipinas nun dahil pinagalitan ako ni Coach Yeng," he added. Shocked by the sermon he received, Arwind was naturally shocked. However, he came to understand Coach Yeng's style through his veteran teammates with previous experience playing for Guiao. "Pero sabi sakin nila Willier Miller, Ranidel [De Ocampo], ganun lang talaga si Coach Yeng. Yun nga, si Coach Yeng pag kilala mo, masasabihan ka talaga ng masakit pero hindi naman personal, dahil lang sa game," Arwind said. "Dun ko siya nakilala ng husto kaya ginawa ko siyang ninong sa kasal, para di na ako masabihan ng [expletives]. Yun ang di ko makalimutan," Santos added.     — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
