I am sooo glad it’s weekend! I wanted to just stay home and sleep – but we have a performance (India Night) to attend tonight at Dusit Hotel. Plus, I don’t want to come to work on Monday without any opinion to share about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie, so I have to watch that movie this weekend.
I am so busy with work that I don’t even have time to upload pictures and update my blog; add the fact that I always commute to and from the office, and all I want is my bed as soon as I get home. I don’t want to talk about work this time – I have already closed my inbox and closed all the applications. Let me just share with you what happened last Wednesday.
|I only get to realize he’s such a cutie.. 😉|
As you know, and might have seen in the news, Kobe Bryant visited Manila last July 13th. We got an invite from our dear friends from Ogilvy, but since I came 45 minutes late (thanks to rush-hour traffic), we lost our precious seats in the Big Dome! My friend made it on time, and he was updating me with what was happening outside the venue – long lines, strict security and impatient fans.
When we got inside the Big Dome, I know it is impossible to take better pictures, so I just took a video of the game.
It is such a good promotion for FEU – since Kobe forgotten to bring jersey for the game, and it was FEU team which brought an extra – Kobe played with the yellow FEU jersey.
During the practice shooting, Kobe didn’t miss a ring – and imagine how the crowd went wild when he joined the UAAP team. Too bad, UAAP lose it – maybe the UAAP players got nervous playing and passing ball with Kobe (?!). I was telling my friend that Smart Gilas could have been a little “nicer” and “gentle” to the game by at least giving it to Kobe and letting him dunk the ball, do fastbreaks and exhibitions – I just thought they became too competitive – I was expecting the story would end with “Kobe saved the game!“.
|The UAAP and Smart Gilas’ players watched the ball with amazement.|
On the second thought, maybe Kobe was also playing it cool and just letting the Philippine Team (Smart Gilas or UAAP) do their thing, and let them shine in the court.
|Everyone wants a picture on that backdraft|
After the game, which only lasted for an hour, people poured out of the Big Dome – most of them guys and basketball fanatics – alot were wearing Lakers shirt, and everyone wants to have a picture in that backdraft with Kobe – I have a pic in the same spot too!
How’s your “Black Mamba” experience?!
