This has been rattling my mind for quite some time now, but I’ve never been able to put it into words before.

Normally during Saturdays, I’m either at the Smart Araneta Coliseum or the FilOil Flying V Centre as a spectator of a DLSU basketball or volleyball game.

Opinion // March 30, 2018

After watching the Bb. Pilipinas Beauty Pageant, I caught myself asking the question, “What in the world did I just watch?” Don’t get me wrong, Catriona Gray is a very deserving winner. And also, being a sports fan, I thought it was pretty cool to see a former Lady Spiker in Michele Gumabao succeed in…
