Then hours after the game he tweeted:
Proud of the team earlier. This will be a learning lesson. Thank you to our supporters earlier who stuck til the end! sa mga umalis, belat!

So Blue Eagles supporters are apparently the new Miami Heat fans (although in this case Ateneo's fourth-quarter rally fell short). What, the commute home was that difficult they couldn't stay just a few more minutes for "A Song for Mary" and to applaud the team's (losing) effort? Tsk, tsk.
Let's excuse the fans who aren't Ateneo students or alumni but not those who are. "Win or lose," that (sometimes derided) song lyric goes, after all. And it's when the team is down that they need the pick-me-up from the Blue side of the arena more.
