Few will argue that it's every man's dream to make a living as a PBA reporter, but we're telling you: It's not as easy as it looks. And we know that because we followed Erika Padilla on the job during last night's game between the Barako Bull Energy Cola and the Talk N' Text Tropang Texters!
We now have a newfound respect for Erika's skills, and you will too once you see what our June 2014 cover girl does behind and in front of the camera! The stalking begins in 4, 3, 2, 1...
It's show time! Erika, all glammed up and prepared for a long night, comes out of the dugout and proceeds to the court. Like a true FHM cover girl, she draws stares from literally everyone during her short stroll.
Erika has a few minutes to spare before the game begins, so she mingles with some guests, including newly-naturalized Pinoy Andray Blatche and other future PBA hopefuls. She makes it a point to establish a relationship with the kids and their parents even before they enter the league.
You have to understand: Erika is always camera-ready. Moments before tip-off, she goes on-air to talk about the opposing teams' sentiments heading into the game. She also went on to talk about Andray, whom she interviewed backstage earlier that night.
The ball game finally tips off! Erika hangs back at the bench every once in a while to listen to what the coaches have to say. None of the players have the heart to tell this gorgeous courtside reporter to piss off. We mean, would you?
