The Heat is On!

I know you guys must still be pretty high after the World Cup. Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the World Cup at all because in this part of the world, it’s simply difficult to get up at midnight to watch and expect to be at work in the morning!

Before the game began, the Saigon Hotgirls performed. ๐Ÿ˜€ photo IMG_2338_zps05c4d913.jpg

But I enjoyed the Saigon Heat’s mascot performance during half-time better. That tiger has got the moves! photo IMG_2373_zps09d957d3.jpg

The Saigon Heat team is composed of players from the Vietnam (of course!), US, and the Philippines!!!

Yes! We represent!!! ๐Ÿ˜› ย Our players Lenonidez Avenido (18) and Froilan Baguion (17) played a stellar game. Seriously, this two were a force to be reckoned with. And I am so not biased.  photo IMG_2358_zps9e9034ba.jpg

I was wondering why the jerseys showed the first name of the players instead of the last names.ย  photo IMG_2367_zps9c3edf10.jpg

Oh yeah, and then I remembered we’re in Vietnam and most likely the Vietnamese last names would be Nguyen. ๐Ÿ˜›

We won by 16 points. Saigon Heat led the game from the get go.
