Props and pans: ADMU vs DLSU in review

Yesterday's humdinger of an Ateneo-La Salle match showcased the best and the worst from both schools, as always tends to happen when the 2 rival universities go head-to-head. Allow me to rip off Stephen Colbert's "Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger" segment and commend/condemn the following classy and unclassy acts:

  • Tip of the Hat to everyone from both schools who wore yellow in honor of Tita Cory
  • Wag of the Finger to the very loud, very annoying, very palengkera young Atenean seated in the same row as us in Gen Ad
  • Tip of the Hat to Bro. Bernie Oca of DLSU for using St. Ignatius' Prayer for Generosity in his portion of the opening prayer, very nice touch
  • Wag of the Finger to the jackass in the DLSU gallery for bellowing "GO LA SALLE!" half-a-second after Bro. Oca finished speaking, even before the solemn ceremony for Cory was done
  • Tip of the Hat to the Green Archers for raising the laban sign while "Bayan Ko" was being played
  • Wag of the Finger to Rabeh Al-Hussaini for playing like a shadow of the MVP from last season (yes, even the best players have their off days, but Rabeh was obviously playing tentatively, if not half-heartedly)
  • Tip of the Hat to the DLSU cheering squad for not doing their usual "La Salle Spelling" move where they turn around to face and goad the Ateneo crowd
  • Wag of the Finger to Green Archer Joshua Webb for kicking Blue Eagle Bacon Austria (Webb played well, but then had to pull that stupid stunt that broke his team's momentum and possibly cost them the game)
  • Tip of the Hat to Eric Salamat, Nonoy Baclao, Ryan Buenafe, Nico Salva, AND Bacon Austria (!!) for maintaining their composure and focus in the end game and for... well, bringing home the bacon (it HAD to be said)
