The Philippine basketball team, even when playing at their best may never, at least for some years to come, be in par with the rest of our Asian basketball counterpart. No hurling of criticism this time. It's just a fact. There's always next time, as they said. As we've stated before, Filipinos love basketball but basketball does not loves us in return. We lost to the Jordanian team, fair and square 81-70 hours ago in the quarterfinal of FIBA Asia Championship. It's over. No basketball in the Olympic games for us. So sad. We are a basketball nation. So sad.
Now let's get back to chess.
