[dropcap letter="A"]s an alumnus of the Ateneo, I believe it would besmirch our hard-earned reputation of being a man for others if I did not give props where props are due, so I wish to congratulate the winners of this year’s UAAP Men’s Basketball Finals: Not the UST Growling Tigers!

In any case, while watching the Finals series, I had a few other random observations…

In the list I wrote a year ago, celebrating the Ateneo’s 5-Peat, I mentioned that chances are, we wouldn’t be winning again this year. I was right!

It took them four years before they realized they had nothing to cheer about?

How many of us have even seen the place? How many of us have a single friend who studied there?

Also, if NU didn’t exist, does that mean Henry Sy got scammed like crazy?

Probably not, seeing as how I have yet to say a single thing about the actual games, almost halfway through the list.

Besides, with the PDAF Scam, the suspension of the RH Law, and the fact that Anne Curtis and Daniel Padilla both have successful singing careers, aren’t there more important issues we have to focus on right now?

Where was this integrity when the Ateneo needed it?

But I don’t really know who actually did, not that I’m bitter about it or anything. What do you think I am, a journalist or something?

I’d put a disclaimer here or something, but if you took this whole thing at face value, then I don’t really know what to tell you.
