We loved Team Gilas when they brought Croatia to overtime. Then we hated Team Gilas when they got mad that the Greeks decided to keep playing hard despite a guaranteed win in a tournament where the score totals mattered. Then we loved them again by actually managing a lead over Argentina. Then we hated them again because they lost to Puerto Rico without Ricky Martin even cheering them on.
And now that Team Gilas defeated Senegal, whose team officials resorted to taunting the Gilas Pilipinas officials during a chance encounter. Yeah, we’re still kinda going home, and Senegal is still moving on to the next round, but we’ll take the moral victory when we can.
I don’t know about you, but I’m fine with that. I’m not a rabid fan of Team Gilas, and wouldn’t hesitate to poke some good-natured fun at them here and there, and I certainly am not a rabid hater, either, who doesn’t seem to have a better thing to do than hate on the team and be self-racist. So now that Team Gilas won, maybe it’s time we thought up ways to celebrate. In style.
Wholesome tweets from a wholesome place!Oh, yeah. You read it right. A Sogo celebration! Given how much support the “hotel” franchise has been giving the team through their Twitter account, there’s no doubt they would happily sponsor a Team Gilas party in Sogo! Just a so clean, so good party, okay? Nothing more. What else were you expecting from a place like Sogo Hotel, right? People do group studies here!
