THE UP Fighting Maroons put an end to a 27-game losing streak in the UAAP on Saturday and the UP community erupted in cheers like it captured a title. Woohoo!
Won a game and there was a bonfire. Paano pa kaya kung championship na ang mapanalunan? Here are the…
Top 10 Things That Would Probably Happen Should UP Win the UAAP Championship
10: May semester-long celebration na siguradong magpapataob sa month-long birthday celebration ni Kuya Germs sa ‘Walang Tulugan.’ May libreng reunion concert ang Eraserheads at may “group selfie” ang bawat dadalo with Ely, Raymund, Buddy and Marcus.
9: Taun-taon, special non-working day sa UP System ang araw kung kailan nakamit ang kampeonato. Kung tumapat sa araw ng Linggo, walang pasok ang kasunod na Friday para long weekend.
7: Ang alumni ng UP na kaanib ng Iglesia ni Cristo… magdo-donate ng bagong gym at training equipment. Pwede nang 1/4 of Philippine Arena ang size ng gym.
5: Wala nang fraternity hazing. Promise. This time, mawawala na talaga, manalo lang.
4: Suspendido ang tuition sa susunod na semester gayundin ang miscellaneous fees, laboratory fees, student fees, at kung anu-ano pang bayarin. Bilang bonus, libre ang sakay sa UP Ikot at sa mga jeep sa loob ng UP Los Baños for one sem.
3: Magkakaroon ng raffle kung saan sampung estudyante o alumni ang mapalad na magwawagi. Ang mananalo ay bibigyan ng pagkakataong sampalin nang sampung beses ang corrupt politician of his choice. May live coverage ang pagsampal.
1: Kung hindi aamin, lahat ng corrupt na pulitikong alumni, susunugin sa bonfire sa Sunken Garden. Ang order ng pagsunog ay batay sa Student Number. Mauuna ang pinakamatanda.
Congratulations again UP Fighting Maroons! Naka-UNO na kayo!
