My friend invited me to a UAAP Championship. It was already late in the when I said yes. Living in Batangas, we got on the bus at noon and arrived at Araneta around 5 PM. We were crazy late. Luckily Upper Box B tickets were still available. Going to the stadium, the guard asked, "Ateneo o FEU?" We stared at each other and both answered "Ateneo po!" Although I'm a Lasallian, I'm really an Ateneo fan. The problem was. my Lycean friend was rooting for FEU. So she punched me in the arm as we're led to the Ateneo wing. To pacify her I said "Advance birthday gift mo na sa akin 'to!"
As we sat down, she put her jacket on to cover her yellow-green shirt. She blamed me for more than a hundred times for ti. During the heated game she was left without a choice but to silently root for the other team. I heard her whispering "Shoot! Shoot! Yes, yahoo!" It was the most awkward experience ever.
