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!
But am definitely a cheerer so I love watching games and just shout at the top of my lungs! And I haven’t been watching any since we left the Philippines — and that would be some Ginebra game in the PBA.
And then the ABL came in our own backyard! Time to make use of those lungs so long preserved from Cheer Dance class as a physical education course back in the University. 😛 (Yup! Well, the uni needed cheerers to watch all UAAP games!).
Hubby and I decided to bike to the stadium which was just 20 minutes away. We lost our seats to some VIPs but our seats did not disappoint. The Canadian International School stadium is not that big so we still had a terrific view from way up!
The game was between Saigon Heat and Indonesia Warriors.
Before the game began, the Saigon Hotgirls performed. 😀
But I enjoyed the Saigon Heat’s mascot performance during half-time better. That tiger has got the moves!
The Saigon Heat team is composed of players from the Vietnam (of course!), US, and the Philippines!!!
Yes! We represent!!! 😛 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.
I was wondering why the jerseys showed the first name of the players instead of the last names.
Oh yeah, and then I remembered we’re in Vietnam and most likely the Vietnamese last names would be Nguyen. 😛
We won by 16 points. Saigon Heat led the game from the get go.
