Talk about things other than video games. What are your other hobbies? What's your favorite TV show? Are you into sports. Any recommended restaurants? Do you travel?

Basketball, Weightlifting, at Gymnastics lang pinapanood ko sa mismong Olympics...

Here's a good reason to watch Basketball at the Olympics...You never know what will happen next...

Martinez made history kahit di nanalo ng medal. First Pinoy sa Winter Olympics. Sinanla pa ng Nanay nya ang bahay nila matupad lang ang pangarap ng anak nyang si Michael.

Michael became an inspiration to all figure skaters in the Philippines. This sends a strong message to Phil.Sports Commission na "Hey, it's high time to support athletes like us!"

MVP will give cash bonus to Michael once makauwi siya. $10,000 to be exact.
Think of this.. It needs an MVP to gear up our country's level of sports. And what MVP does is kinda a slap in the face of the gov't. na hindi makasuporta sa mga Pinoy athletes natin.

No brainer naman siguro sa atin kung gaano kakarampot ang binibigay ng PSC na suporta sa mga atleta natin. Simpleng sports facilities na lang di pa makapag-pundar.

2004 ako nagsimula manood ng Olympics. I'm not saying na nagustohan ko agad lahat ng games that time. And during that time, puro basketball lang ang at yung mga laro ng Pinoy athletes ang pinapalabas. 2008 they started showing other eventspero minimal parin. And finally noong 2012 meron nang PPV coverage of Olympics (4 channels for only P2500, HD, 24/7, from opening ceremonies until after 1 week after the closing ceremonies) which I subscribed. :grin:

Nagpakagat lang yata nung una ang sama kasi ng warm-up pero nung turn na niya ang gaganda ng jump and walan pause direcho yung transition sa routine.. :agree:

Magaling din yung 25th participant na young prodigy.. Yung pinay-norwegian I hope makapasok sa free skate bukas..
