This day in history from:


We may be bitter rivals when it comes to sports. And we like to go at each other silly.

But this was totally uncalled for. This has no point. Or if there is one, it is totally stupid. And even if this was a private Ateneo event, the person who did this should have been more circumspect and assumed pictures of this will go around the internets.

So I personally like to apologize to my clients and friends from La Salle for this one, now known as the "Ateneo Bonfire Scandal":

In the words of Fr. Nebres, S.J.:

Despite our rivalries in sports, we are both committed to Christian values and what was done is certainly a violation of values we share.

Once again, my sincere apologies.

i shouldn't be that involved in the UAAP basketball, being in the maroon team. but that bonfire display was uncalled for.

i don't know if you were trying to diffuse the situation by inserting gloria's infamous apology, but i felt it somewhat negated the apology, which is a shame, since i think it was a sincere apology.

anyway, just some musings from a non-blue, non-(truly) green witness...

Duly noted. I will revise that last line. I was truly asking for an apology and if it came out that way, I'm man enough to admit and rectify it accordingly.

Thanks for the comment.

thanks as well. i hope i can be as magnanimous as you are if we ever win the basketball championship again (hmm, maybe in the next century? hehehe!)... peace! :)

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

and will conduct myself as a lawyer
according to the best of my knowledge
and discretion with all good fidelity
as well to the courts as to my clients;

or purpose of evasion.
So help me God.
