Yesterday morning, I was so consumed with my emotions and the demands of the wedding preparations that I vented out my frustration to Reil. He looked at me and said, “mamaya, sama ka sa’kin ha. Magdadate tayo.“ [translated: Come with me later, we'll have a date.] I responded where, “You told me before that you wanted to watch a live basketball game. So, we’re going to watch the PBA Finals Game 6 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum tonight.” So sweet! Instead of reacting, beau decided to kidnap and take me away-even for a moment-from all the toxic and busy schedules.
So, after the music team practice at the church, I rushed to Farmer’s plaza Cubao to meet with him, who happened to go there early to buy us tickets to the game.
Smart Araneta Coliseum was jam-packed with fans from both Talk ‘N Text and B-Meg teams. It was my first time to get inside the place so I was really thrilled by what I was seeing. I can really feel the hype of 20,534 people there! Man, that’s a lot of excess liability insurance to work on! #just saying#. And so, a few minutes before the game started, we finally found a seat. It’s okay, beau and I just decided to share.
In the first period of PBA Finals Game 6, B-Meg controlled the game with almost 10 points ahead. On the second quarter, Talk ‘N Text managed to cope up and scored 50-48. By 3rd quarter, Talk ‘N Text still has the game with 67-63 points. With 28:2 seconds left, TnT killed time dribbling the ball. Also, it was on this quarter that the referee called for a time out but B-Meg Derby Ace Coach Tim Cone reiterated to the committee that he hasn’t even made a signal for a time out.
4th quarter. As the game started, Jonas Villanueva of B-Meg scored 3 points. Still, it wasn’t enough. The team struggled to cope up. At 8 minutes, Talk ‘N Text scored 71 over 66. It wasn’t long when De Ocampo of TnT managed a 3-point shot.
Time check: 5:52 mins left and B-Meg’s score hasn’t changed a bit. Fans were getting disappointed. A lot of time out has been called. After their brief meeting, B-Meg’s Yap and Bowls scored making them just 9 points behind the opponent.
With 3:59 mins left, Tnt shot 3 points again, scoring them 84 and B-Meg 73. Yap managed to do a 3-point shot but Tnt fired up again, leveling the score still 10 points ahead.
A minute left in the clock and the I could see people going home. At 52 seconds, Tnt is 12 points ahead of B-Meg with score of 92. 28 seconds, James Yap scored making them 82. Talk ‘N Text Swept B-Meg By 10 Points! Our team grieves with B-Meg.
Series Update: Tied-3-3. That means, it’s game 7 on Sunday. Aww, I hope beau takes me to a game date again. Anyway, whoever wins game 7 will be crowned the champion team. Beau and I hopes for B-Meg
