AN FRANCISCO—Puwede na ngayong silipin ng mga gumagamit ng online mapping service ng Google ang mga virtual scuba dive, tulad ng isa na nasa Apo Island sa Negros Oriental, upang makita ang yamang-dagat na sinuri ng mga aghamista.
upang tila makikisisid ang mga magmamasid nang hindi nababasa. “With these vibrant and stunning photos, you don’t have to be a scuba diver or even know how to swim to explore and experience six of the ocean’s most incredible living coral reefs,” ani Brian McClendon, vice president ng Google Maps at Earth. “Now, anyone can become the next virtual Jacques Cousteau and dive with sea turtles, fish and manta rays in Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii.” Masisilip ang virtual scuba dive sa Great Barrier Reef, Molokini Crater at Apo Island marine reserve. Makikita ang mga imahe sa ilalim ng dagat sa maps.google. com/ocean. AFP Dinagdag sa Google Maps ang mga unang imahe ng ilalim ng dagat sa tulong ng Catlin Seaview Survey scientific expedition, na umaasang makatutulong ito upang maantig ang mga tao na pangalagaan ang ilalim ng dagat. “This is a critical decade for coral reefs,” ani Catlin project director Richard Vevers habang nagpapakita ng preview ng Google reef mapping project. “We need to be recording them as fast as we can and involving people to halt the decline, which is alarming at the moment.” Gumamit ang isang maliit na pangkat ng mga diver ng Catlin ng espesyal na kamera upang kumuha ng mga pinagtagni-tagning imahe sa Google Maps at sa isang espesyal na Street View online gallery

UTOS NG VATICAN

Imbentaryo ng mga ivory ipinag-utos ng arsobispo
CEBU CITY—Iniutos ni Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma ang pagimbentaryo sa lahat ng ivory na pag-aari ni Msgr. Cristobal Garcia, na iniugnay ng NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC sa iligal na kalakalan ng ivory. Layunin ng arsobispo na malaman kung ang mga ari-arian ni Garcia ay nabili bago 1981, ang taon kung kailan pumirma ang Pilipinas sa pandaigdigang pagbabawal sa pagkalakal ng ivory. Sinabi ni Palma nitong Miyerkules na makikipagtulungan ang Archdiocese of Cebu sa imbestigasyon ng pamahalaan at iginiit na hindi nito kukunsintihin ang iligal na bentahan ng ivory. “The Church does not condone ivory smuggling or other illegal activities, although in the past, ivory was one of the materials used in the adornment of liturgical worship,” ani Palma sa isang pahayag na inilabas din sa website ng Radio Veritas, na pinatatakbo ng Simbahan. “While these ivory artifacts crafted long before the ban are considered the cultural heritage of the Church, in no way does the Church encourage the use of ivory for new implements,” aniya. Nanawagan siya na bigyan ng patas na pagdinig si Garcia kaugnay sa usapin. CEF, JN, JRU

CEBU CITY—Sinuspindi ng Vatican si Msgr. Cristobal Garcia at tinanggalan ng lahat ng posisyon sa Archdiocese of Cebu habang iniimbestigahan sa pangmomolestiya ng mga sakristan mahigit 20 taon na ang nakararaan sa Estados Unidos.
Ayon kay Msgr. Achilles Dakay, Cebu archdiocese media liaison officer, naganap ang suspensyon kay Garcia ilang buwan bago nabanggit ang monsignor sa artikulo ng NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC hinggil sa iligal na kalakalan ng ivory sa Pilipinas. Lumabas ang pahayag ni Dakay makaraang sabihin ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources na mahaharap si Garcia sa hanggang apat na taong pagkakabilanggo maliban na lang kung makapagpapakita ito ng patunay na ligal ang pagkakakuha niya sa malaki niyang koleksyon ng mga imahen ng santo na yari sa ivory. Sinabi ni Dakay na sinuspindi si Garcia ni Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma noong Hunyo sa utos ng Vatican dahil sa gumugulong na imbestigasyon sa pangmomolestiya ng bata na sinampa laban dito.

Isang Dominikanong pari si Garcia na naglingkod sa Archdiocese of Los Angeles noong dekada ’80. Pinatalsik siya makaraang iulat ng isang madre na may kasiping itong sakristan. Inulat ng THE LOS ANGELES TIMES na pinaratangan si Garcia ng pangmomolestiya sa dalawang bata noong 1980 at 1984. Sa isang panayam ng DALLAS MORNING NEWS, inamin ni Garcia na nakipagtalik siya sa mga kabataan. Ngunit sinabi niyang inakit siya ng mga sakristan at ginahasa, bagay na pinabulaanan ng mga nanghabla sa kanya. Sa ngayon, naiulat na pumapalya ang kalusugan ni Garcia, at nakita sa Makati City na kasama ang bodyguard at isang nars, at “looking very sick,” ani Dakay.

Aiza promises nonstop singing, good vibes
By Dolly Anne Carvajal

E ALL saw how Aiza Seguerra morphed from an adorable child wonder into a talented singer-songwriter. We salute her for being brave enough to show her true colors. It’s not an easy thing to admit you’re gay, especially in the cruel world of show biz.
It’s been 25 years since Aiza charmed her way into our hearts. To celebrate her silver milestone, she’s having an anniversary concert aptly dubbed Bente Singko on Sept. 28 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum (call 9115555). Bravo, Aiza! You’re living proof that talent knows no gender. What can fans expect from your anniversary concert? Nonstop singing, good vibes. What was the hardest part of growing up as a child superstar? The not-growing-up part (literally). I enjoyed every bit of it, even if my childhood was somewhat different from other kids. Which is your fave song among all your compositions? I have several favorites—“Lupang Pinangako,” even if it’s not a hit; “’Di Lang Ikaw,” which I cowrote with Juris, and “Kung Malalaman Mo,” written by Ryan Cayabyab and I for Krizza Neri. What’s your advice to gays who are afraid to come out of the closet? Be ready because it’s not easy. People will either accept you or not. That’s why you should learn how to love yourself; people may distance themselves from you if they can’t understand why you’re gay. What song best describes the state of your heart right now? A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. What’s your guilty pleasure? Video games.

W

What’s on your bucket list? To skydive. And to dive in all the best dive spots in the world. What kind of lover are you? I give my all, but I’m no martyr. What’s your message to your future self and to your former self? To my future self, just keep enjoying life! To my former self, heads up: Sorry, you’re not going to grow any taller.

Bonding time
Ogie Alcasid is having the time of his life bonding with his family in Singapore. He sent me this message via MMS: “I feel so blessed. My daughters absolutely love Nate. It’s the first time they’ve met and they are inseparable.” Let Ogie’s pic on this page say the rest.

Katrina nagsasanay pa rin mag-breastfead sa kanyang baby
Ni Marinel R. Cruz
“SHE’S a quiet girl, [who] often smiles.” Ganito inilarawan ng nagmamalaking ina na si Katrina Halili ang baby niyang si Katrence, ang bagong panganak na anak nilang babae ng singer na si Kris Lawrence. Hindi naman nahihirapan ang first-time mother na alagaan ang kanyang baby dahil “she sleeps most of the time.” “She only cries when she’s hungry or when she gets frustrated because she’s not getting enough milk from me,” Katrina, 26, said. “I’m still learning how to breastfeed her,” paliwanag niya. “I’m lucky that my mom is flying to Manila [from Palawan] to help me take care of Katrence during the baby’s first months.” Kailangan daw niya ng tulong lalo na’t nagpapagaling pa rin siya mula sa kanyang cesarean operation. Ipinanganak ni Katrina si Katrence, na may bigat na 6.6 lbs, sa Set. 18 sa St. Luke’s Medical Center sa Taguig City. Inilabas ang aktres mula ospital nitong weekend. Ang ganda “Indescribable” ang naramdaman ni Kris Lawrence nang una niyang nakita si Katrence. “She is so beautiful,” pagmamalaki niya. Ipinaskil din niya sa kanyang Twitter account: “When you look at your own kid and she looks back at you ... everything around you turns into a blur, stops, mutes and it’s just the two of you. Wow!” Ipinangako ng FilipinoAmerican singer na magiging huwarang magulang siya sa kanyang anak. Aniya: “We will raise her to become a good person. We will do anything for Katrence.” Hawak ni Kris ang kamay ni Katrina habang iniluluwal ang kanilang sanggol na umabot sa 16 na oras. “We were hoping for a normal delivery so I could heal faster, but my cervix didn’t open big enough to make this possible. We tried to wait longer but this only made me very weak and tired,” sabi ng aktres sa isang phone interview sa INQUIRER. Naalala niya na hindi siya mapakali at baligtad nang baligtad sa kama habang dumadalas ang pagkirot. “Nagalala tuloy si Kris,” sabi niya. Kuwento naman ni Kris: “Although I know Katrina has high tolerance for pain, I still couldn’t stand looking at her hurting so much. Naawa ako.” Balak ni Katrina, na isang contract artist ng GMA 7, na bumalik na sa trabaho sa Enero 2013 matapos binyagan ang kanyang baby. Gusto niya na ipagdiwang ni Katrence ang kanyang unang Pasko at Bagong Taon sa Palawan, ang probinsiya ng aktres.

Superstar judges
Judge-mentors Simon Cowell and LA Reid are back and now joined by Demi Lovato and Britney Spears on Season 2 of The X Factor USA, which premiered recently on Studio 23 (Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m. with a same-day replay at 10:30 p.m.). The competition is a search for an out-of-this-world talent, who is bold enough to face superstar judges and the audience whom they have to win over during the audition. When it comes to judging, Britney described her style as subtle and constructive, while Demi simply put it as happy and really honest. Simon revealed that more of the mentoring process could be expected this season. But before the world meets the second X Factor USA winner, Filipinos will first have a glimpse of the grand winner of The X Factor Philippines hosted by KC Concepcion (airs weekends on ABS-CBN) because the finale is about to unfold.

Foster the People to invade the Big Dome
ONE of the best breakthrough bands of 2011, Foster the People performs in Manila on Oct. 6, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Los Angelesbased indie-pop trio was founded in 2009 by Mark Foster (lead vocal) and joined by Mark Pontius (drums) and Cubbie Fink (bass). Foster wrote and recorded Pumped Up Kicks, in March 2010 and posted it as free download on his website. The catchy song went viral and the band garnered enough attention to debut at the South By Southwest (SXSW) festival. Just a few months later, the band signed a multialbum deal with Columbia Records. While hard at work on their debut album, the band was booked for a month-long residency at The Echo, a Los Angeles nightclub. The series of shows at the club helped grow the trio’s fanbase. The band also performed at the immensely popular Coachella music festival. The launch of their first album Torches last May 2011 was a mainstream success. It debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 chart. Pumped Up Kicks eventually peaked at number three on the Hot 100 chart and was the sixth best-selling digital song of the year. The band received nominations at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards for Best New Artist and Best Rock Video for Pumped Up Kicks. This year alone, they scored two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for Pumped Up Kicks and Best Alternative Album for Torches. They also had five nominations in the 2012 Billboard Music Awards and received a Top Rock Song award for Pumped Up Kicks. Filipino fans of the band can look forward to hearing songs from Torches including the other singles Helena Beat, Call It What You Want, Don’t Stop, and Houdini. Catch Foster the People live on Oct. 6, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Tickets may be purchased from Ticketnet outlets or the Ticketnet Website www.ticketnet.com.ph. For inquiries, call 911-5555.

Salud tiwala gagawa ng bagong marka ang PBA
Ni Musong R. Castillo
KUMBINSIDO si Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner Chito Salud na sisirain ng liga ang bagong marka sa bilang ng mga manonood sa liga na nangyari noong nakaraang season. “We had quite a year behind us,” sabi ni Salud kahapon sa paglulunsad ng ika-38 season ng PBA. Magbubukas ang Philippine Cup Linggo. Maghaharap ang Barangay Ginebra at baguhan Global Port sa Smart Araneta Coliseum. “We are looking forward, and we are optimistic to sustain the gains we had in the previous season.” Kumita ng P114 milyon ang PBA noong nakaraang season. Ito ay mula sa benta ng tiket. Nagwagi ang Talk ‘N Text sa Philippine Cup, B-Meg sa Commissioner’s Cup at Rain or Shine sa Governors’ Cup. Naniniwala si Salud na hahatak ng tao ang PBA dahil sa balanse ang mga koponan. Malaking bagay rin ang pagpasok ng mga baguhan sa pangunguna ni June Mar Fajardo ng kinuha ng Petron Blaze. “The fans have clearly spoken. They want fast-paced action, balanced competition, and they’re looking forward to the new faces, the rookies, who will continue to challenge the veterans. We intend to pound on these elements,” Salud added. Bagong chairman ng PBA si Robert Non ng Barangay Ginebra. Hangad ng Tropang Texters na mapanalunan ang Philippine Cup sa ikatlong sunod pagkakataon. Coach ng TNT si Norman Black na binigay ang grand slam sa San Miguel noong 1989. Pinalitan ni Black si Chot Reyes na ginigiyahan ang Smart Gilas. Matutuon ang pansin ng mga miron kay Mark Caguioa. Ipaparada rin ng Kings sina Keith Jensen at Chris Ellis. Magtutulungan sina Gary David at Willie Miller upang hindi maiwan ang Global Port.

UNWAVERING
BARANGAY UP Pep shows its support. AUGUST DELA CRUZ

When the going gets tough, UP Pep Squad gets going
By Patrick Leonard Mayo

HE UP Pep Squad has been known as the squad that brings strong, innovative and, at times, shocking concepts in its routines every year in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition (CdC). And this year was no different, except that the stakes got a bit higher and the competition tougher.
Their recent conquest in the UAAP CdC capped their third straight championship and placed them in a tie with their old rivals, the University of Santo Tomas Salinggawi Dance Troupe for most titles, with eight. But the road to the top was not without bumps and falls. The squad literally had to endure a fall from one of their members in one of their lifts during the end of their routine which left the UP crowd uneasy and the team concerned as they waited the announcement of the winners. “At the back of my mind, I was worried about the fall during the last part of our routine,” said assistant coach Pio Opinaldo. “I thought we might not win knowing that most of the teams had a clean or perfect run.” But despite the fall, it was the strong routine that saved the day for the Diliman Pride. Sporting shaved heads, while donning minimalistic suits that symbolized not only the iconic Oblation but also freedom and equality, the UP Pep towered above the rest. “Our routine had a lot of difficult stunts which I believe earned us enough points and helped us earn the top spot even with that mistake in the end,” added Opinaldo. One of the team’s three cocaptains, Irish Planes, said the squad’s creativity also played a big role in this year’s victory. “There were a lot of key elements in our routine which we really needed. Aside from the difficulty of our stunts and pyramids, our creative choreog-

raphy and clean transitions also gave as a good head start, said Planes. With the Far Eastern University Cheering Squad consistently improving every year as well as the other squads who have been easily discounted in the past, the UP Pep Squad believes this year’s CDC edition was one of the toughest in their championship years. “The stress level and the pressure to win the three-peat and the 8th title also affected us and it meant that we also had to outdo ourselves,” said Opinaldo. “Aside from the growing competition, this year’s task was to become better than what we did last year, and it is always more difficult to beat yourself,” he added. “For me, this year was the toughest. People just see the end product on the day of the competition but they don’t see the struggles that we had to go through and the sacrifices we had to make to get there, from the stunts, to the costumes and even the hair,” ended Planes.

HIS year is probably one of the biggest heartbreaks that the FEU Cheering Squad experienced. They came so close. They were separated from the eight-time champions, UP Pep Squad, by a hair’s breadth of 0.9 point.
“They were perfect. They did everything perfectly. They did nothing wrong,” said coach Jacqueline Alolor-Alota. The squad unleashed their wild side with their routine. Months of disciplined training showed in the movements that

they did away with the bulky props that hindered their movements on the mat. They pulled off a surprise in the end with Tamaraw headdresses and tails that they pulled out of their uniforms. Their fans showed their support by sporting similar hats. They executed their routine almost flawlessly. Alota was spotted crying with happiness after their performance. Everything appeared to work for them. However, it was still not enough to win the top prize. It was a devastating blow for the team. “I will talk to them and make them feel that I will be here for them no matter what,” said Alota the day after UAAP CdC.

Fitting fairy-tale ending for NU
By Alexx Esponga

A

FTER years of trying, the National University Pep Squad’s wish was finally heard by their fairy godmother, granting the squad its very first happy ending after bagging the Top 3 spot in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition.
“Hindi na lang namin pinapansin ang mga sinasabi ng ibang tao. Masaya kami sa nangyari at iyon ang importante.” She is also thankful of the NU community for supporting the squad all throughout the competition; they couldn’t have done it without them. “Sila ang reason kung bakit kami naging matatag at mas tatatag pa sa susunod na taon. Salamat dahil naniwala sila sa amin. Hindi namin ito magagawa kung wala sila.” The senior cheerleader also clarified that the battle is not over yet and they will not be contented of running third place only. “Abangan nila next year dahil magbibigay ulit kami ng mas maganda pang laban.” Indeed, there is no more holding back the NU Pep Squad.

IT’S OVER
NU’s long wait to join the big guns is over.

The NU Pep Squad’s Disney-inspired theme surprised the jampacked Mall of Asia Arena as they also placed third in the UAAP Group Stunts Exhibition. “We are overwhelmed,” said NU Pep Squad Captain Rose Anne De Leon. “Honestly, we were expecting to enter the Top 3 because of the difficulty of our routine compared to the other schools.” True enough, the NU Pep Squad’s hard work paid off and they weren’t just cheering with heart and passion but also with a lot more confidence compared to last year. “Inisip talaga namin na mananalo kami habang nagpeperform,” added De Leon. “Gusto namin na gumawa ng history sa NU community at iyon talaga ang naging motivation namin.” The captain also shared that despite all the criticisms that they received after the “unexpected” win, she is just thankful about what happened. “We’re just so blessed na nanalo kami,” said De Leon.

UST SALINGGAWI

Back to the drawing boards for traditional powerhouse

HE UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe (SDT) found themselves out of the podium again during the UAAP Cheerdance Competition, finishing fourth for the second straight year.
that host Boom Gonzales told the crowd that the average scores for the winners will not be announced. Instead, the judges ranked the teams. It was met with a few “boos” from the audience. “Hey, I’m only the messenger,” Gonzales was prompted to say. Still, the squad took the result in stride. They have no plans to contest the results. Instead, they’re focusing on their game plan for the future. “To be on top again, (we need to have the) humility that we once had. (We need to get the) champion mentality. As they say ‘if you want to be champions, you have to train and act like one,’” said Pagaduan.

POTENTIAL
MEMBERS of Salinggawi have eyes on the future.

For the SDT’s avid supporters, it’s not exactly a bad finish. After all, the group outperformed expectations. National Cheerleading Competition pundits predicted they will land a mere sixth. The squad is going through a lot of changes, its members composed mostly of rookies. This year’s performance was basically a showcase of potential. “They did well, they did their best and they did what they could,” said SDT coach Ramon Pagaduan IV . Departing from their usual fierceness, the members of the SDT chose Rio’s carnival atmosphere as their theme, donning bright red and orange uniforms that blended with the school’s traditional colors. Their routine had that “happy” element that their president Danrev Dimaculangan had earlier hinted on.” The only thing that didn’t go according to plan was the missed lifts at the beginning of the routine. “The on-the-spot changes in judging (cost us our third ranking). We were supposed to be third if the total average score is to be implemented,” says Pagaduan. A picture of the scoresheet was leaked to different websites, social media and online forums after the competition. The picture showed that the SDT garnered a total of 85.56. On the same picture, the third placersNU Pep Squad got a total average score of 85.16. It was only before the winners were proclaimed

Adamson finds reward in all-out perfomance G

Fighting hearts not enough for UE
By Alexx Esponga
A NEWLY-INSTALLED coach. An improved routine. A new batch of Warriors. Still, they weren’t enough. Despite the changes, the University of the East Pep Squad has been unable to break its dry spell in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition and still ended at the bottom of the cellar. “We are a new team. At gaya nung sabi ko before mag-start ang tournament, kung hindi kami umangat ng place, may next year pa naman,” said adviser Love Yee. “Ang mahalaga, lumaban kami.” Though they walked out of the Mall of Asia Arena with broken hearts, they still carry that fighting spirit. Just like their theme, the UE Pep Squad will hold on and continue to have ‘immortal’ hopes. The new coach of the squad, Coach Jomel Bernardo was just hired last summer and he admitted that they weren’t really prepared. They only had three months to make and polish their routine unlike those of other pep squads that prepared almost the whole year for the tourney. The squad also itself is raw, they lost a lot of seniors last year and had to start with fresh members.. He also shared in an exclusive interview before the competition that the boys and girls had no background of cheerleading before. Thus, he needed to mold each of them and teach them new techniques which ate their time to prepare. Coach Bernardo, who also coaches the Central Colleges of the Philippines Bobcats in the National Cheerleading Competition, said that even from the beginning, he wasn’t expecting much from the squad because of their immaturity. But he appreciates the efforts of the team and is also amazed of squad’s fighting spirit. “Mas palaban sila ngayon at nakakatuwa naman ’yun,” said Coach Bernardo. “Meron pa naman next year at mas magiging handa na kami nun.” True enough, it is just time to prove what the pep squad needs and in a matter of adjustments, they will soon also be seen in the limelight as they did a decade ago. Though they have once again failed to take a leap forward, the UE Pep Squad aren’t discouraged to fight once again next year and they will always keep their fingers crossed, hoping for a miracle to happen.

OING against the big dogs with nothing to lose, the Adamson Pep Squad showed it was willing to take on all comers last Saturday.

Though failing to send shockwaves in the cheerleading world, the San Marcelinobased squad posed a formidable challenge against the top-tier teams of the UAAP , brandishing their own style of cheerleading done the Adamson way. Behind their experienced coach Joseph Mascariñas, the Falcon cheerers unveiled a near-flawless routine to go with their flashy and sparkling attire. “I couldn’t be happier with

the team’s performance,” said Mascariñas, a veteran of the field for 13 years now. In an attempt to touch trendier and the latest themes, the Adamson Pep Squad used a K-Pop-inspired performance to open the festivities at the 2012 UAAP Cheerdance Competitions. With all of its members sporting hairstyles inspired by the Korean stars who are now popular in the country, the squad flaunted a performance that was a culmination of what

they worked on for the last few months. “Worth it lahat ng pagod namin sa practice,” said 20year-old team captain Dan Albert Ravino. “Whatever happens, we’re satisfied sa pinakita namin sa audience.” Aiming for a surprise entry to the top three like they did in 2001, the Adamson Pep Squad finished seventh this year, beating only the UE Pep Squad. Despite the results, Mascariñas couldn’t even be more proud of his team. “I feel rewarded with the dedication these guys are giving,” he said. “They gave their all in that six-minute performance and I couldn’t even be happier.”

UE will be a force to reckon with next season.

OMETIMES, even if you give your all, that’s just isn’t enough. Unsuccessful in its attempt to land a spot in the top three, that is the lesson learned by the DLSU Animo Squad after finishing fifth out of the eight squads which strutted their stuff at the 2012 UAAP Cheerdance Competition.
With their finale danced in the tune of We Are The Champions, last year’s first runnerup failed in their bid to make their Season 74 silver a gold this time. As unpredictable as they were in that rainy Saturday afternoon, the outcome was a far cry from the bar set by their multi-titled coach Rhufa Rosario. “We had minor mistakes,” said Rosario, the coach of the six-time NCAA cheerdance champs Perpetual Altas Perpsquad. But for the cheerdancers, despite the results, they were satisfied with what they have done in the mat. “I think we really did a good performance out there,” said female captain Natasha Mendoza. “We owned it.” And they did. As promised, the gloves really did come off as the Taftbased cheerdancers showcased a boxing-themed performance. Wearing boxing gloves and championship belts, the Animo Squad danced like they were in a

tense round 12 of a closely contested boxing match. “We did our best and we’re happy that we enjoyed it all throughout the routine,” Mendoza added. Premium was put in the difficulty of the stunts they did, which is already an accomplishment for Rosario given the rookie-laden team that he had. “All in all, that could be the greatest performance we can ever give to the crowd,” Rosario said. As they say, it’s not all about what you can get in the competition, what matters is what you get from it. And that is what keeps the coach and the DLSU Animo Squad upbeat. With their rookies gaining significant experience from this year’s tiff, Rosario could only promise one thing. “We’ll come back stronger next year.”

ATENEO BLUE BABBLE BATALLION

Voltes V didn’t save the day

WIN OR LOSE
Ateneans all the way.
AUGUST DELA CRUZ

By Danielle Nakpil

HILE the Ateneo men’s basketball team is on top of its game, the Blue Babble Batallion seemingly has to wait for another season with hopes high and all bets in for a podium finish.

Pulling through a Japanese animé-inspired theme and showcasing more difficult stunts and tosses than their last year’s routine, the Ateneo Blue Babble Batallion still wasn’t able to place in the Top 3 even with Voltes V capping their performance. In 2009 though, Ateneo placed second to Far Eastern University with a Michael Jackson theme, the first time Ateneo landed a podium finish. Maybe the magic of Voltes V didn’t work as much as the King of Pop’s as the Babble Batallion only landed on sixth place in the Season 75 UAAP Cheerdance Competition, one step higher from their seventh place finish in Season 74. According to co-captain Desiree Fadri, the team really prepared for this year’s cheerdance competition. Senior cheerleader Bea Crisologo also added that their Japanese animé theme’s routine was definitely more challenging than last year’s. But still, it wasn’t enough. Maybe because the Blue Babble Batallion needed to change their routine one day before the competition due to an MCL injury obtained by one of their lifters, George Santos. Good thing their showmanship conquered all odds. The team coached by Randel San Gregorio and Ivan Claudio, still did their best like nothing happened and gave their everything for the Ateneo faithfuls. The Ateneo Blue Babble Batallion may have failed to bring home the bacon to Katipunan. But it does not matter. Because just like what the Ateneans often say, “Win or lose, it’s the school we choose.” At the end of the day, that is the true Ateneo way.
