Ateneo wins, 75-69

Watching the UAAP games after a killer Saturday of Legal History and Consti has become a refreshing ritual for the past two weekends. Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of watching Big Blue run rings around UE's 23-year old "freshman" transferees from JRU.

I came into the Big Dome with the game, as it turns out, already won. The score was 15-5.

After Persons last night, I had this insatiable urge to look for this poem that I first saw on my best man's shirt from college:

I think that I shall never see
A grade as lovely as a three
A three that’s earned with blood and sweat
When failing is a serious threat
A three I’ve asked for God all day
Knowing praying is the only way
Exams are taken by fools like me,
But only God can give a three

The First School

Before Mr. Taylor taught the world to play
Before fiberglass
Before parquet
Before the word "Doctor" was spelled with a "J"
And ballrooms were ballcourts where the Renaissance played
Before the hype and before the dunk
After the rhythm but before the funk
Before the money and before the fame
Before new school and old school
Before school had a name
It was only a ball and the soul of the game
The first school
