And just like that, we're off to the weekend!
The week saw the San Miguel Beermen and their fans celebrating after a dominating sweep of the Alaska Aces in the PBA's milestone 40th season, after missing the playoffs in the Commissioners' Cup (ironically after a championship run). All eyes were also on the relocation of the league's winningest coach, Tim Cone, to a Barangay Ginebra squad that is essentially going nowhere before this development.
On the sexy side of things, we introduced you to this month's #fitspo, Jennifer Gonzales, a twerking Ella Cruz, and this one-of-a-kind street sweeper—all while our Wingwoman, Divine Maitland-Smith, showed you how to hit "a home run."
But really, who cares about all of that now, especially as we approach our favorite part of the week?
Speaking of which, in case you still don't have plans yet, read on for this week's edition of the FHM Gimik Guide!
