Dear UP Pep Squad
Nagmamahal at nagpapasalamat,
(Walang masabi. ‘Sensya na.)
“For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.”
2011 UAAP Cheerdance Contest Tidbits
The UP Pep Squad won again! Thank you UP men’s basketball team!
UP also won in the group stunts category while UP Pep member Nesza Salvador was chosen as this year’s Samsung Stunner. A grandslam of sorts for the State University. Take that Talk ‘N Txt!
The UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe spelled “UST” with the lower case T resembling a crucifix. It also incorporated a Gary Valenciano gospel song in the routine. As I correctly predicted on Twitter, it finished 3rd runner-up. Alam mo na!
Lea Salonga immediately denied reports that she wrote the results read by host Boom Gonzales. The organizers in fact did.
Oprah Winfrey has likewise disowned a statement in which she purportedly said that fourth place UST should have won the title.
A CNN columnist called Ateneo’s routine the “dumbest performance in the universe.”
Contrary to rumors, UP’s costume was designed by a Filipino and not by Colombia’s Alfredo Barraza.
La Salle‘s Animo Squad was the 1st runner-up. Take that Ateneo!
Had La Salle failed to finish in the Top 4, the DLSU Animo Squad head coach and staff would have resigned.
Rumors say after UP’s win, somebody was spotted “stalking” the members of the squad. The person was later identified as Dyan Castillejo.
Finally, members of the UP Pep Squad are advised to behave, especially in public, from hereon. If for any reason, the champions fail to live up to moral expectations, the first runner-up may be considered to take their position.
AWESOME. Check out this amazing video of the UP Pep Squad’s performance uploaded by a spectator on YouTube. Way way better than what you saw on television. Kudos!
