dashed hopes

Nothing worse than dashed hopes. Up until before six pm this evening, we all thought the Maroons could barge into the Final Four of the UAAP. They couldn’t. The bench players are crappy. Axel was injured, yet Vergara kept playing him. That’s how shallow our bench was. The better players, even when injured, are fielded in anyways. The best six or five players are left winded down the stretch.

Aargh.


It would have been a coup had it happened! UP is the Ginebra of the UAAP. Can’t win games, but the neversaydie attitude is there. Part of what makes the UAAP a more palatable fare than the professional league. You imagine it to be free from greed. But UP had more of it, if only because they’ve less resources to pick from.

It was a good run while it lasted. Everyone was waiting with bated breath. We move on. Life moves on.

As they say, perennial losers have better coping mechanisms than those who are used to winning. Stunned, they will plot and scheme until the wee hours of the morning on how to get back on top. Outraged, they will watch the game over and over again, hoping for a different ending each time. Sad as it is to say, I will sleep soundly tonight.
