"makalagot. ateneo won the game.:( let's mourn for that.."
this was the exact text message i received from march, a good friend since hs, the other night. she felt bad when she found out that ateneo won the uaap 2008 basketball championship over la salle.. i just replied with, "okay lang na.:)" for i really didn't know what to text her.. her sympathy is really on la salle for she finished her gs and hs studies on a la salle district school. she was my schoolmate since gs which means i also graduated on the same institution - de la salle john bosco college (dlsjbc).
however, i have my symphaty on both ateneo and la salle.. i don't have to choose, right? so are you..
one of my friends in my present university, ateneo de davao university (addu), told me that his former teacher cried when she found out that ateneo won the game. according to him, this teacher named ** exclaimed, "ateneo won the game! again!" same as my hs friend, miss **'s sympathy is on la salle for she finished her college studies and mastered in de la salle university (dlsu).. miss ** loves la salle so much but she is practicing her profession in ateneo which happens to be the rival of the first. ironic, isn't it?
i really can't understand why many people continue to ignite the flame between ATENEO and LA SALLE. it's time to forget all those fights and make things right..
let ateneans and lasallians coexist peacefully. :]
