Viva La Liga El Tomasino!

Its that time of the year again... UAAP Season! Yay! On July 12, this year's host, the University of the East will be officially opening the 77th season. I am thrilled to have something worthwhile to watch on TV again. I would watch anything, actually, even re-runs of crime shows, soaps, or sit coms. No political news for me because it is so depressing.

Anyway.. I have to get my vocal chords ready for all the screaming I will be doing. Of course, I will be rooting for my Alma Mater, the University of Santo Tomas! I hope we bring home the trophy this year. (Fingers crossed!) My eldest son will be at all the games, beating the drums, getting the crowd all revved up, leading the cheer "Ganaremos Tigres El Campeon!" (Go Tigers, the Champions!)

My UST Yellow Jackets Drummer boy, Aton

Me and the center for the UST Tigers, Karim Abdul

I am writing this post to share with you my excitement. I am calling on all Thomasians worldwide to show your support to our Alma Mater this season. Go USTe, Go USTe, Go, go, go, go, GO USTe!!!


  1. Wow! I'm looking forward for a great, action-filled season.

  2. Another great UAAP season coming. I'll share na lang this post sa daughter kong si KM. UST graduate yun.

  3. Good luck to UST and your son as he is part of the Cheering Team (is that how you call it now?). I'm from UP and I don't know if the Maroons ever made it to the finals. Not since Benjie Paras and Ronnie Magsanoc! LOL napaghahalataan ang age ko!

  4. what an exciting event...good luck to UST! how awesome to know that your son is part of the team!

  5. I'm a Thomasian, too, so yes, I'll echo your cheer: Viva La Liga El Tomasino! Good luck, UST!


Feel free to share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you too.
