[dropcap letter="I"]n case you guys have been living under a rock, yesterday saw two exciting UAAP Final Four games that, unfortunately for two certain schools, ended in heartbreak.
La Salle and Ateneo, called by some as the “Conyo Nation,” saw their basketball teams fall at the hands of FEU and NU, respectively, despite being favorites to come away with wins.
After the match, parody, and fan accounts of both universities took to social media to let out their feelings, and it formed an unexpected but hilarious alliance between the two rivals. Here are some of the best tweets:

It was a tough day for the Green Archers to see their reign as defending UAAP champions come to an end, but as Idina Menzel said, sometimes you just have to “let it go… let it go.”

Wouldn’t it be awesome if Marvel made a film about DLSU and Ateneo as the X-Men? Who would Kiefer Ravena play? How about Jeron Teng? What kind of powers would they have?
Speaking of Teng and Ravena…

All throughout the UAAP season, La Salle and Ateneo stood at the higher echelon of the league standings. Then in one day, it was all gone. Like having your heart snatched by your crush without warning. Wait, what?

[buffer by="10px 15px 10px 15px" id="bar"]5. That’s a crafty way of putting it[/buffer]

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Well, this picture shows just one word, but it does still say a lot, doesn’t it?

[buffer by="10px 15px 10px 15px" id="bar"]4. Bonfire + Alcohol + Conyo Nation = Epic[/buffer]

My assumption is that many drinking sites in Katipunan and Taft will earn a lot this evening after yesterday’s games. For La Sallians, even better, because they don’t have classes on Friday! But wouldn’t it be even more awesome if both schools came together for a bonfire with alcohol? Hey, UP should join and teach them how it’s done, diba?

[buffer by="10px 15px 10px 15px" id="bar"]3. Sorry, Hardwell[/buffer]

Other than the UAAP games yesterday, it was also the evening of Hardwell’s concert (super bad timing for a typhoon and bad traffic to hit the Metro, I know). Problem is, Hardwell’s audience probably wasn't in the celebratory mood.

[buffer by="10px 15px 10px 15px" id="bar"]2. CONYO. MOURNING. DAY. YES.[/buffer]

Okay, this isn’t an actual holiday. But, I mean, it’s at least worth the discussion to create something like it, right, Philippine Government?

[buffer by="10px 15px 10px 15px" id="bar"]1. Misery loves company[/buffer]

In times of excruciating pain and misery, even the bitterest of enemies would put their rivalry aside for some consolation and company.
