#GoGilas

Yung pagod na pagod ka na,
pero ang layo layo mo pa…
Tapos napapaisip ka,
bakit ka nga ulit pumusta?

Nagkamali ka ata ng tantsa,
hindi mo naman pala kaya…
Kahit kaibigan mo di naniniwala,
sadyang imposible yata talaga.

Sakit ng katawan, maga ang mata,
hindi nila alam, umiiyak ka na…
Pakiramdam mo susuko ka na,
Gaano katagal pa ba?

Pero wala e, nandito ka na,
e di lubos lubusin mo na…
Malay mo, kaya mo naman pala,
kesa umayaw ka, walang mapapala.

Isang hingang malalim, o lima,
minsan lang ito, itodo mo na…
Wag kang mawawalan ng pag-asa,
konti na lang yan, kakayanin pa, di ba?

The Philippines’ return to the world basketball stage started last night when Philippines took on Croatia to open its campaign in the FIBA World Cup 2014 in Spain.

Gilas Pilipinas lost that game by three points, but that was after they pushed the 20-plus point favorite opponent into overtime. They showed a lot of heart in that loss, introducing the world to the Filipino kind of basketball.

Last year’s silver medal finish in the FIBA Asia Championship (which got them the slot into this year’s FIBA Worlds) was magical.

I’m hoping for the same magic this year.

Laban Pilipinas PUSO!!!
