SPORTS NEWS: BOBOY HAS FOUND HIS NICHE
Apr 19, 2007
This morning, Boboy texted me and asked me to buy, SAKSI, a tabloid and to read the sports section, because there was an article about his good performance as head coach of the Bicol's Best in the ongoing Asian Universities Basketball Championship Tournament. I don't know much about the details, because I no longer found a copy of the tabloid in the newstand when I went home this pm. Lolokohin ko sana si Boboy, kung sa Abante Tonite sa column ni Xerex sya na-feature. (This is the column which writes about sexual fantasies. But, I can feel his sense of pride in his achievement). As Mendy would say, “He has found his niche.” - hindi po iyan nitso ha!)
I advised him to keep the article and to ask Mendy to scan it and post it in the egroup so everyone will get to read it. Boboy is now with the Department of Education, teaching Good Manners and Right Conduct. Joke lang! He's handling sports. Before this, he worked with the Department of Agriculture. So, he's been a civil servant for quite a long time.
What's the Asian University Basketball Championship?

The Asian University Basketball Championship (AUBC) Unity Cup which is the 5th this year was held in Camarines Norte. The AUBC unity cup aims to promote the sport and foster unity and cooperation between Asian countries.
