SEABA Stankovic Cup Day 4 Recap: Words

Words are interesting. I like words and I like studying how to use words.

SEABA Stankovic Cup Day 3 Recap: For the Love of the Game

By the time I walked into Stadium29 to prepare for day 3 of the SEABA Stankovic Cup, the dance squad were already parading their way off the court after their daily practice (much to my disappointment). The moment he was that the court was vacant, new Mono Vampire Head Coach and National Team Assistant Coach Jon Corbacio walked up to an arena staff to ask if he could get some shooting done before the National Teams arrived.

หลายๆ คนก็รู้อยู่แล้วฟิลิปินส์เป็นมหาอำนาจทางบาสเก็ตบอล และรู้มาระดับนึงว่าฟิลิปินส์เป็นประเทศที่คลั่งไคล้บาสเก็ตบอลมากขนาดไหน จากการที่ผมได้ติดตามการแข่งขัน PBA มานัดแล้วนัดเล่า ผมก็พอกะระดับความเก่งกาจของทีมชาติฟิลิปินส์ได้แหละ ว่ามันอยู่คนละระดับกัน ณ จุดนี้
