Farewell, Old Friend

When I moved here in 2008, one of the very few items I brought with me from Marikina was an old Samsung CT-5029V television set. It used to belong to a friend who let me use it after I had it repaired, then later on gave it to me because it was his spare set, anyway.

Four days ago the TV's old defect struck again and it up and died on me. No biggie—I think it can still be repaired. Good thing the UAAP basketball tournament is over or I would've thrown a hissy fit.

Quote of the Year contender. Ateneo defensive stalwart and two-time UAAP Men's Basketball champion Nonoy Baclao, on his favorite Blue Eagle of all time:
JC Intal. Kahit nung nasa Bacolod ako—Intal na talaga. Nung unang meet nga namin, nastarstruck ako. Di ako makakibo ng maayos e. Katabi ko pa siya. "SHET! JC!!!" Parang babae akong kinilig bigla.
I'm going to miss that dude in Season 73.

[Hat tip to Nonoy for President.]
