Doble: Neat Work By-A A +A
Saturday, September 29, 2012
THE easy way not to get things done is to be absent from your work or play. Oh boy!...its not boycott. Pass maybe is a safe word. Excuse me, is overused.
After all everybody is entitled not to appear for work if one feels lazy. Nobody can tell me to play if my foot hurts. More so if other VIPs are on vacation.
Look what early politicking could do. Make the present officials look bad and shoot up their BP? Piece of cake. Be invisible. Disappear. Be a magician and poof.
Quorum used to be a popular disco house. Now both big house, the SP and SB, are
enamored with the word__ preceded by a NO.
Without enough number to declare the session in order, nothing good follows. Just like a team which showed up short of starting a game, they're declared in default.
People can only sympathize with officials who lost an Ayala offer. Feel sad for not passing a new loan package to finish a Paglaum project. Feel sorry for the inconvenience provided by potholes waiting for a new cemented road we know not when to be finished.
Be happy for the bridge going nowhere, too.
But whoever made a darker but smooth Lacson Street can be congratulated for doing what others cannot appreciate. Seven parked trucks in the northside of the Capitol Lagoon can be seen every morning (last week) by meek joggers and walkers.
That was the team that did the midnight asphalting of the road. Except for the last day when they finished it late (due perhaps to deadline) that stretch was done as planned.
As one kibitzer would say:" I would rather pass by a road that is dark but smooth than one with a sign apologizing for the inconvenience it offers the riding public. I even come to appreciate the red brick sidewalk which I first thought to be just showboating," he added.
Well, just come to think about it.
If these were two competing schools, one prefers to disband the whole team and replaced it with new faces. The other one chose to reinforce his remaining squad with players having similar skills or better athletes.
It's a matter of choice.
In street lingo: sampao or sao-sao.
Don't get me wrong. There is no sexual connotation whatsoever with the words.
At least something good is done__ quickie or prolonging the agony.
Post Game Thoughts on Azkals vs Macau
The Philippine Azkals rode on the heroics of striker Dennis Wolf’s three goals to power the Azkals to a 5-0 victory over listless Macau lat night in the second match day of the Philippine Football Peace Cup. The win put the Azkals on the championship mode against Chinese Taipei on the last day of this four nation tournament tomorrow at the historic Rizal Memorial Stadium. The Azkals are playing on another level despite missing the services of most of their stars but despite such shortcoming, our Azkals continue to surprise the naysayers. What have we learned on this tournament so far?
1. Wolf’s Emergence. The Azkals entered this tournament without number one striker Phil Younghusband but coach hans Michael Weiss managed to bring out the best in his reserve striker in Dennis Wolf, a Fil-German, who accounted three (3) of the five Azkals goals against Macau. This goes to show that our players given enough exposure in the pitch can wreck havoc to opposition. Credit also goes to the team officials for finding such talent. Wolf is still young and have so many years left in his jersey can serve as a catalyst for future international tournaments for the Azkals.
2. Cohesive and coherent. Coach Weiss made some adjustments in the game
against Macau inserting midfield Matthew Uy who made his presence felt by
controlling the tempo for the Azkals. Uy, another beautiful find, gave us a glimpse of his composure and intelligence in the field. His wise decisions and precise passing in the early going of the game set the tone for the Azkals and gave the opposition something to worry that they never regained their poise.
Jason de Jong has come of age and his steely demeanor on the field is sign the attacking the Philippine territory will never come easy. He has proven his true worth and gained our trust in his tenacious defense.
3. Bring in the Youth. In this Peace Cup, Weiss inserted several prize finds in the line up. Local twin brother Marvin and Marwin Angeles, Demit Omphroy, Patrick Reichelt, OJ Porteria, Misagh Bahadoran and Carli de Murga are tough young players which we will see in the Azkals line up for a long time and it’s wonderful to see these guys display their energy in the field. Running for the ball, sliding, sprinting back for recovery and sacrificing their body just to gain possession is a breathtaking sight. The Peace Cup is their time and for them to shine. Thanks coach Weiss for believing in his wards. (Jun-Jun Carballo)
