Top Searches

I have been keeping this blog for a year now, and of thousands of visitors thus far, there are five main subjects that these people want when they click on my pages.

Basically, this post is about the top 5 most searched stuff in my blog. I don’t do this, but I think it’s time to give the people what they want — for whatever reason it may be 🙂

Ms. Thea Africa aka the most searched-for girl in my blog. I know hot-blooded collegeball fanboys have been drooling over the pretty Lady Blazer. I know, I was mesmerized myself seeing her for the first time. The second time I saw her, I took this pic (right above). Since she’s everyone’s favorite volleybelle/muse, Imma post this pic for the second time. Happy?

Smart Gilas aka “Team MVP”. The most hyped national team in centuries takes over the second spot in this list. I’m sure people are fiending for some SG news for varied reasons: either to support the squad or hate on ’em completely. While it hasn’t been a beauty, unlike what certain officials say on paper, the guys are worth cheering for. They got heart, as well as a ticket to the FIBA Asia Championships. All they need now is a good import (See Diamon Simpson).

Young Dirk “Uberboy” Nowitzki. A few months back, I posted a video of a teenage, soon-to-be MVP Dirk Nowitzki playing hoops with his HS mates in native Germany.  I wasn’t expecting a big following from visitors, but it has been constantly viewed on a daily basis (thanks, German/Mavs fans!). As an MFFL myself, I’m wishing The Uberman all the best in the coming NBA season.

BJ “Cauliflower Ears” Penn. I haven’t been watching MMA for a minute, but I know for a fact that Penn lost stunningly to Frankie Edgar. As a fan of BJ, it sucked. But that’s MMA: it doesn’t matter if you’re a decorated champ, you’re gonna get beat at one point (hear that, Anderson Silva?). Anyways, all for the best for what’s coming for BJ. A rematch with Edgar would be nice, though.

“Pretty Boy” Mark Barroca. Last, but not the least, is the very handsome Smart Gilas guard. This former FEU Tamaraw has been on the deep end of the Gilas bench as of late (blame Lassiter and Lutz). Clearly, he hasn’t had a decent break since his ordeal with the Tams last year. Hopefully, he’ll come back stronger in the coming tournaments and eventually make an impact  in the pros, which of course, leads to more chicks. Chris Tiu has nothing on his teammate!

Paying off

Smart Gilas has been beasting on the court recently. As of today, they’ve beaten some of the best (and roughest) teams in the Middle East in the Dubai International Basketball Tournament. Beating Fadi El Khatib‘s Al Riyadi (Lebanon) and Rasheem Wright‘s Zain (Jordan) clubs — remember, Team Pilipinas couldn’t catch up with these ballers in the Asiad — has been impressive, given the fact that this came off the heels of a very disappointing showing in the ongoing PBA Season. Hats off to the guys. I’m sure there’s still a lot left to be learned, but at least the improvements are showing. See guys, the bumps and hacks that you got from Wynne Arboleda paid off.
