Live-Blogging: The NBA Finals 2011 Game 6

9:39AM WIN OR DIE. Dallas Mavericks leads with seven after a Shawn Marrion put-back.

9:45AM FINALLY brought the Starbucks tumbler I have been meaning to use in the office.

9:49AM LeBron James commits an offensive against – of all people – JJ Barea. The hell is he thinking?!

9:51AM Dirk Nowitzki makes a three-point basket gives Mavs a 6-point lead in the third chapter of the all-important Game 6. 72-56.

9:52AM James gets the ball but loses the ball in the fast break. Mavs last touch. Wade DOING all his best to give his team a fighting chance. He seems to be losing his temper after getting called an offense against Brian Cardinal. Keep it cool. Lazy Butt James is having another personal meltdown.

9:57AM Gloria Estafan rooting for Miami. Let us hear it from the original Miami Sound Machine! Gloria Estefan>Jennifer Lopez.

9:58AM Udonis Haslem sinks both freebies cuts lead to 5.

10:00AM Black coral probe in the Senate. Haslem rebound results to another offensive put-back. Jason Terry answers back with a high-looping drive. Looking for Tyson Chandler. He’s sitting in the bench after committing 4 fouls.

10:01AM Juwan Howard fouls Marion. Freebies. 76-71, Mavs.

10:03AM 58% foul-throw shooting for the Heat. Jason Kidd punishes them with a 3 on the other end. Score stands at 79-71 for the Mavs. James misses first but makes second freebie. Awful shooting.

10:05AM Twitter Trending: Dear Dirk. Sample: “Dear Dirk, with all these bricks, you could start working on a house for someone.” FUNNY.

10:09AM Erik Spoelstra emphasizing MENTAL STABILITY. Hoping James is listening. Haslem gets fouled. 81-73, Mavs.

10:11AM Wade making things happen. Drives strong gets fouled but misses a freebie. Cursed or something? 81-75, Mavs.

10:12AM Mario Chalmers fishes a foul on Nowtzki. Shooting freebies. SLOWLY CLIMBING. Doing it despite a mental fart from James.

10:13AM Wade is DOING EVERYTHING. But Barea SILENCES THE CROWD. Then gets the rebound on the end of the court. Terry steals the ball. Haslem fouls him.

10:19AM Stopping. Popping. TERRY SCORES. Double-digit lead. Heat turns the ball over.

10:20AM James MISSES EVERYTHING. Did not hit even the back iron. Mavs side: Barea whizzes past the defense for another basket.

10:25AM If James misses that offensive put-back, the Heat should sell his contract for a discount after the series.

10:26AM Nowitzki scores. Wade gets stripped. Velociraptor recovers the ball and scores plus a foul. Chalmers steals the ball. Forces a basket. Chandler blocks him. Mavs ball.


10:34AM The hell is Chalmers thinking? Nowitzki scores.

10:35AM James did not fought for the loose ball. Michael Jordan is LAUGHING SOMEWHERE. “He is supposed to inherit MY MANTLE?!”


10:37AM “LeBron is terrible!” — Joseph Yeo


10:40AM James bricks a three. Some fans are leaving the arena. The bloggers WILL BE HAVING A FIELD DAY.

10:41AM Dear Dirk: Congratulations!

10:42AM 18.8 seconds to go before LEBRON JAMES CRY.

10:43AM Chalmers hits a three after a Spoelstra time-out. Heat putting up some press. TOO LATE. TOO FREAKIN’ LATE.

10:44AM There it goes. MAVS ARE THE CHAMPS!

10:50AM David Stern presenting the Larry O’ Brien and the Bill Russell MVP. Dirk deserves it even of he bricked a lot of shots tonight. Rick Carlisle Oh. Mark Cuban requested the Stern to dedicate the their first championship to Mavs first owner. CLASSY.

10:52AM “This team has so much heart. So much dedication.” — Mark Cuban

10:53AM “I have an announcement: our owner is now available for interviews.” — Rick Carlisle. THEORY: Successful coaches has a CELEBRITY LOOK-ALIKE. Phil Jackson = Jerry Garcia. Pat Riley = Gordon Gekko. Rick Carisle = Jim Carrey.

10:54AM Dirk wins it.

10:56AM “I just can’t believe the journey.” — Jason Kidd. Congratulations. Your career did not Malone.

Live-Blogging: The Latest Announcement of the President

2:24PM Post-9/11 has a bad effect on me. All announcements of presidents and other important leaders could be something bad and life-altering. Rouge planes?! Terrorist bombings?! Biological warfare?! The paranoia kills. Earlier, the ABSCBN NEWS CHANNEL Tweeted that the president is expected to make an important announcement later this afternoon. 2 o’clock in the afternoon.

2:25PM Just that. No other hints. Just an announcement. It is such killer.

2:29PM The number of issues discussed in the Philippines at present is a smorgasbord of things that’ll make a optimist groan in despair: Marcos burial, postponement of elections, smuggling black corals and biological mothers refuting their daughters revelations. WHAT COULD HIS ANNOUNCEMENT BE?

2:35PM Half an hour has past and there is still no announcement.

2:36PM Meteor?! A meteor will hit the Philippines? The last time Morgan Freeman made an announcement as a fictional president, the Earth felt a “deep impact.” No. Please let it not be a meteor.

2:39PM BREAKING NEWS. “Tinanggap na ni Mar Roxas ang…” Oh. So he is the spanking-new chief of Department of Transportation and Communication. Plus he is going to be part of the economic cluster of the administration.

2:41PM The president is speaking so fast.

2:42PM “Inutusan ko na po si Mar na makipag-usap kay Sec. Ping nang ma-update ito sa DOTC.” SHORT AND SWEET ANNOUNCEMENT.

2:43PM Question 1: “How are you able to convince Mar to take the post instead of being the chief-of-staff?” President replied, “Hindi po siya nagdalawang-isip…”

2:44PM Spokesperson Abigail Valte is wearing a black and red ensemble. 2:46PM Of course Virgie Torres will be asked. Be back. Getting some raisin bread. Bread and butter. Yum. Thanks Candice!

2:47PM “OK na? Iiwanan ko na kayo? Pwede na?” – President Aquino III. This woke me up. F-U-N-N-Y. Bakit hindi pa pwedeng magmadali ang presidente?

2:48PM “His track record will speak for himself.” – President Aquino

2:49PM Question 2: Does this mean na wala na pong magiging chief-of-staff?” – reporter

2:51PM Er…so his answer on the chief-of-staff question…is?

2:52PM Michael Fajatin. YouTube sensation!

2:53PM “Yon po bang free-hand eh ganun ka-loose?” — Michael Fajatin. President replied that he will be given the same privilege like the other cabinet members. The administration should have a detailed and transparent “free-hand” measurement. Some sort of free-hand peg.

2:54PM “Para po sa taumbayan, meron po bang paksyon sa inyong pamahalaan?” – Michael Fajatin. The question is in the service of the Filipino people. Ooops. That is from another station.

2:55PM “Mar, do you like to say a few words?” – President Aquino III. (Like in classroom elections: Yee-hee! Speech! Speech!)

2:56PM “Nagpapasalamat po ako kay Pangulong Noynoy, sa kanyang…” – DOTC Chief Roxas

2:57PM The end.

2:58PM NOT YET. The station will air press conference of the incoming DOTC chief.

2:59PM “Sir, did you have a hard time accepting the position?” – reporter. “Tulad din nang sinabi ng pangulo, nagulat din ako.” – Roxas. GULAT FACTOR!

3:01PM “The role will evolve.” – Roxas. Charles Darwin?!

3:02PM “What are your initial hesitations…?” – reporter. Hahaha! Bakit ba puro hesitations ang nais malaman ng mga tao?

3:03PM “Do you think this is a demotion?” – reporter. Toinks. Laugh-trip. “Hindi naman. Kahit saan ako i-assign. Kung WATERBOY man eh di WATERBOY.” – Roxas. Like  a perfect cue, water is delivered to our office. Love it!

3:04PM “Trains, boats and planes…” – Roxas. Theme song according to him. I remember a former classmate of mine, “Nagpapatawa! Di naman kalbo.” (The song is “Trains and Planes and Boats”. One stanza goes like this: You are from another part of the world/You had to go back a while and then/You said you soon would return again/I’m waiting here like I promised to./I’m waiting here but where are you?) So sad. Can he choose another theme song?

3:05PM “Ano pong masasabi niyo na Samar Group ang nagtulak ng pagiging DOTC chief?” – reporter. Ouch! Roxas laughs NERVOUSLY then said, “I’m excited.” Yeah. He is so excited and he just cannot hide it. (The reporter is so fun.)

3:07PM “Wala akong sasantuhin. Ang pinaka-priority dito ay ang pagde-deliver ng goods.” – Roxas

3:08PM “Ang pinakamahalaga sa akin ay delivery and performance.” — Roxas

3:09PM “How are you going to deal with the vice president?” — reporter. “My parents brought me up as a civilized person. I will deal with him like a co-worker.” — Roxas. Adding insult to the still injured heart IF the reporter used the qualifier “winning” before the “vice-president.”

3:10PM Speaking of “winning” and “vice presidents”, has Roxas surrendered his electoral protest?

3:13PM Glad the Philippines is still meteor-free.


Live-Blogging: The NBA Finals 2011 Game 2

9:15AM As I slip on the last three bangles, I am reminded of the nagging idea that the greatest basketball league is colluding to give LeBron James his first ring. Total embarrassment will envelope the National Basketball Association if a Kevin Durant or a Derrick Rose hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy before James. An immediate changing of the guard before one of its vaunted superstar reach the ultimate prize is just unacceptable.

9:20AM A lime green Cherry car makes a slow right turn from the parking light and as I had a strange feeling it will stop in front of me. It did. Professor Abraham of the UP Diliman College of Arts and Letters (and Kontra-Gapi fame), once again offered me a free ride. LUCKY START. As I closed the car door and settled in the passenger seat, he introduced himself. “Pangalawang beses ko na pong nakasakay dito.” I replied quite meekly. (Downright lie. This is the 3rd time. And no. It is not a conscious effort. I just happened to be a the right place and at the right time.) I was about to thank him again when he said, “Alam mo ba sa Buddhist teaching…’di ba may mga monks? Itong mga monks na ito, pumupunta sila sa bahay-bahay may dalang lalagyan ng bigas. Hindi limos dahil iyong mga nagbigay pa ang magpapasalamat. ‘Thank you for giving me a chance to do his act of charity.’ Parang ganun din ako. Nang sumakay ka, nagpapasalamat akong binigyan mo ako ng chance na makagawa ng mabuti.” Some people are deep and kind. Thank you Sir!

9:29AM “Napapailing ka Jason. Bakit?” — Gonzales. Jason replied something like, Spoelstara called  a time out and the Heat cannot make the play. Funnier if he just retorted, “Naaalala ko lang ng hindi namin matalo ang UST Growling Tigers noon.”

9:30AM Barea streaking. Barea rebounding. Barea scratching Miller. Barea!

9:40AM Starting computer office up. Cue in Rolling Stones, “Start Me Up.” “If you start it up/Kick on the starter give it all you got, you got, you got.”

9:45AM Dangerous cross-court passes resulting to turnovers. Nowitzki. Stop it!

9:56AM Chicago-native is on fire!

9:58AM Velociraptor seems quiet.

9:59AM James makes a jumper with a foul.

10:00AM Good pass Kidd. 49-42 Mavs.

10:01AM Brick shot from Kidd. Come on. Pass the ball!

10:02AM Three fouls on James. Heat steals ball. Wade misses drive. I do not think it is a foul. Quick pass on the other side. Dunk. Biggest lead of Mavs at 51-42. Three minutes to go in the second quarter. 

10:03AM Lamborghini ad in the Philippines?! Oh. Just Globe Tattoo Lamborghini edition. The hell.

10:07AM Watching a Velociraptor make freebies. Aaack! Aaack! (The best Velociraptor onomatopoeia I can think of. Sounds like a panicking Cathy. Comic strips Cathy.)

10:08AM On the Mavericks: “Grabe ang pasahan. Sumobra lang.” — Manotoc. Go TJ! 51-46 Mavs.

10:11AM Checking Facebook livestream. First thing I see, “China Fired at Filipino Fishermen in China Atoll.” Friend commenting, “Release the Kraken!” Hahaha! Smells like a diplomatic protest. If I were the fishermen, i-English-in ko na lang sila hanggang mag-nosebleed.

10:12AM Wade for three! People talkin’ about Kobe or Bron as the next Michael Jordan? Do not forget this man. Even Jordan thinks so.

10:13AM Cannot get closer than this. Tied at 51. Damn.

KEY STAT: Heat defense causing Mavericks to turn the ball over.


10:18AM Bureau of Customs Chief Lito Alvarez announcing that his department has filed smuggling charges against consignees  and shippers of the black corals and other endangered species. So…he keeps his position?

10:20AM Tenorio endorsing Gatorade. His voice seems bigger than him. The clutch guard is one of the FEW Blue Eagles I like. (I need to emphasize the adjective.) The other one is Fonacier. Magnum Membrere. Injuries cut his potential career.

10:29AM “Na-ospital ang dalawang taga-Pangasinan nang kumain ng botchang bangus…” — newsflash (Er…) “Sa Batangas, hindi masusunod agad ang utos ni Sec. Robredo na baklasin agad ang mga fishpens…” — newsflash (Toinks!)

10:33AM Khloe Kardashian just Tweeted that “‘Because I said So’ is on. I so love this movie.” Your taste in movies and men are both bad.


10:36AM Behind-the-back reverse dunk for Wade. Mavs turn-over. Fastbreak for James. 57-52 Heat.

10:39AM Promotion overload for the soap of Robin Padilla and Bea Alonzo.

10:40AM Marion scores. Ends drought. 57-54 Heat.

10:41AM Struggling Velociraptor. Nowitzki scores on the other end. One-point game.

10:42AM Rampaging Wade. Wade-ing through. 59-56 Heat.

10:43AM Chandler taking care of business in rebounding end.

10:44AM Rare travelling infraction from Kidd.

10:45AM Velociraptor got blocked.

10:46AM The hell! James elbowed Nowitzki and refs called a technical on the Heat coach?! James missed the freebies. Boo effin’ hoo. I hate him.

10:47AMMTRCB Calls for Mandatory Trust Fund for Child Stars” — Manila Bulletin. Call this the Nino Mulach Approach. New television rating code to be unveiled next month.

10:49AMFr. Bernas Finds Contraception = Abortion Statement by Anti-RH Bill Advocates, Hilarious” — FINALLY SOME SENSE.

10:50AM Bibby is alive! (Dr. Frankenstein voice: He’s alive! He’s alive!) Hits second three for a 59-51 lead.

10:54AM Someone posted a casual conversation video of the Boss. Needs to see it first. Nice! The range of topics is amazing. Rapid-fire questions and rapid-fire replies.

10:57AM Celebrities in the game: Steve Nash, David Stern and Gordon Gekko.

11:00AM Wondering if major grocery stores are selling Brewer’s Pocket Perks. Coffee-flavored candies. Addicted to it. Bought a pack in a convenient store.

11:04AM Officemate gave me a Prince William and Kate Middleton postcard. The Duke and Duchess Cambridge is smiling in the desk cork-board.

11:10AM Ooops. Have not been checking the game. A game of runs. Mavs makes their run closes on the Heat. Heat retaliates for a 59-53 lead.

11:16AM James called for travelling. 81-73 Heat. Eight minutes to go in the final quarter.

11:17AM Velociraptor for a put-back slam. Turn-overs piling up for the Mavericks.

11:19AM Wade taking over! LeBron James who? Cleveland fans are right. Their former basketball savior will become a sidekick.

11: 23AM Powerbooks has a comicbook sale! (It’s Mall of Asia branch will be having a clearance sale this weekend. Bookworms, rejoice!) Speaking of comics, I FINALLY read Gerry Alanguilan’s Elmer last night. One of the best reads!

11:25AM Going to the last six minutes, Heat leads 88-77. Spoelstra calls for time. Mavs cuts lead from a high of 15.

11:30AM Single-digit lead for the Heat.

11:32AM Kidd for three! Rare.

11:33AM 3 minutes to go and the lead is down to 4, courtesy of Jason Terry basket.

11:34AM “The only drawback to watching Game 2 in the cool confines of my bed: I can now name all 109 teleseryes of ABS-CBN. Backwards.” — Francis Ochoa via Twitter. Hahaha!

11:35AM “Kung kelan tumanda si J. Kidd, kelan sya nagka shooting! Hehe good 3! Down the wire!” — Mark Andaya via Twitter (Yes. The tall local baller.)

11:36AM After a Spoelstra time-out, Heat turned the ball over resulting to Nowitzki jumper. Single possession separating both teams.

11:37AM Twilight zone. Bron bricks a shot. Wade keeps possession. The hell is shooting three?!

11:38AM Nowitzki delivers in a 3-on-1 fastbreak. TIED BALLGAME.

11:39AM Game-related Twitter trending topic: F*ck Miami.

11:40AM NOWITZKI FOR THREE! Mavs lead.

11:41AM Mavs coach looks a bit like certain comedian.

11:42AM Oooh. CHALMERS THREE! That is nice set-up. Good call Spoelstra.

11:44AM No more time-outs. 24.5 seconds to go.

11:45AM Nowitzki hits. Wade misses three. MAVS WIN! German  Assassin finished them off.

11:46AM Tied series. Mavs steal home-court advantage. Shifting to Dallas. Cuban, as I said last time, I need POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE.


TIED 1-1

KEY STAT: Heat coasted after posting a big lead and Mavs just killed them in the final minutes. Nowitzki resurrected and good screens from his teammates.


Live-Blogging: The NBA Finals 2011 Game 1

7:45AM I woke up and has no intention of parting with the pillows and comforter. Sure sign am excited with the game.

8:40AM Putting on lipstick. Then spritzing some Harajuku Love.

8:45AM Getting out of the house. Thinks the game is starting but our basketball fanatic (videoke-loving) neighbor still has not turned on the television.

9:57AM Gordon Gekko. No. Pat Riley!He looks like him. Review old Knicks game. He STILL looks like Gekko. I remember our for editor who is a huge Pat fan. R.I.P. Sir Ahmed. Sleek back hair and all.

9:58AM Nowitzki missing his shots. Offensive rebound. Shawn Marion got fouled, shooting freebies. 30-29 Heat. In other station: Senate probe on poaching of black corals.

9:59AM Wade for three! Nowitzki drives, fakes, shoots and make it. 33-31 Mavs.

10:03AM Andal Ampatuan, Sr. pleads NOT GUILTY.

10:04AM The German hits his first triple. Mavs regain lead. Then a fading jumper.

10:05AM Kidd gets the ball and am like, “Pass the ball! Do not shoot.” Marion for a slam. See? Pass the ball.

10:27AM Checking some logos of the Finals. Found a poster of The Big Three emblazoned with a Mavs logo with this, “Yes. We. Did. Get beat by the Dallas Mavericks.” *grinning* Cuban! I need some pomp and circumstance when the games shift to Dallas.


10:31AM Second half starts.

10:33AM 51-43 Mavs. Biggest lead. Spoelstra calls for time.

10:35AM Reading “Kris Says No to Relationship with Chiz Escudero?” Blogger is OBVIOUSLY NOT A KRIS FAN. “Bibe J” and “Juice”. Go. Click the link.

10:37AM Wade back-to-back drive. Had James not entered the picture, I should be cheering for Heat because of Wade.

10:53AM Tied ball game!

10:54AM LeBron turns the ball over leading to a fastbreak. Oldest point guard leading the break.

10:55AM “There’s nothing like a great big three to energize the crowd.” — Gonzales. Bron makes it and gives lead to Heat.

10:56AM Karl Malone Sketchers Shape-up commercials. You got no ring and is endorsing Sketchers?!

10:57AM Juwan Howard enters the game. SEVENTEEN-YEAR VETERAN?! I have his rookie card. Kind of a basketball card hustler back in grade school. Ask the former classmates.

10:59AM Tough buzzer-beating three from Bron. I am so objective. 65-61 Heat. Mavs call for time.

11:08AM Nowitzki uses left for a basket. 68-66 Mavs.

11:09AM Velcoripator turns the ball. Bosh fans will kill me. But he does looks like one. There is a Facebook page called “Chris Bosh is a Velociraptor.” Then “Chris Bosh is a Scrubby Velociraptor-Turtle Hybrid.”

11:14AM Stevenson corner three. 72-69 Heat.

11:16AM Haslem scores. 74-69 Heat. If Heat wins, Haslem and Miller should take the credit.

11:28AM Wade scores! 77-70 Heat.

11:30AM “Erik Dampier. Nakakalimutan nilang nasa Heat.” — Webb.

Dear Mr. Webb: I also have a rookie card of Dampier. Stop making me feel old. I also have a rookie card of A.C. Green. There. I confess.

11:31AM Block from Wade. Then makes a three. Aaargh. I hate Bron. I cannot support the Chicago-native because of YOU.

11:33AM So a local station is now showing blockbuster movies from Thailand? I like it. Glad Thailand’s film industry is rolling because it was once declared dead before. I still have hope for our movies.

11:40AM Right. Mike Bibby. I used to love him when he was in Sacramento. Him going up against O’ Neal’s Lakers is classic. The man is full of heart but his teammates are coasters. Kings fans are hard-core. I used to summer vacation there. Almost met the Michael Jordan in the airport. But I did chance upon Kemp in Seattle airport.

11:41AM Gah! Kidd shoots and bricks it. Pass the ball!

11:42AM Velociraptor gives Heat biggest lead with ten. Heat crowd throwing white towels.

11:43AM Nowitzki misses. Chandler misses put-back. Wade-James connection for a highlight.

11:44AM Tim Cone is right. Heat has to take the Nowitzki and Barrea out of the game.

11:45AM “Rebounds. 46 for Miami. 35 for Dallas.” — Gonzales. There goes the game.

11:48AM Doris Burke looks like a cougar librarian.
