Slammed the Grandslam

“Who will seize the crown?” — is a common question every PBA fanatics has in mind after Talk ‘N Text managed to defeat Petron in Game 6 of the 36th PBA Governors Cup, allowing both teams to extend the titular showdown until Game 7 that was scheduled at Smart Araneta Coliseum, 7:00PM.
During the first quarter, TNT was totally left behind but slowly and surely they were able to recover. However Petron Blaze Boosters keep on gaining shots.
Not in Talk N Text thus matched the versatility of Petron though they did everything they could. Petron lead the game until fourth quarter. The scores from first to fourth quarter were28-17, 40-34, 64-53 respectively.
During the last 2 minutes of the game, pressure was gently risen up between the players in each team. Momentum was totally high.

Everyone’s standing, screaming and praying for their bets. Obviously, tension was there. Even I, who am only watching on TV, also felt nervous because I really don’t want TNT to be defeated. But I guess fate has been bitter to them.

It was sweet redemption for the Petron Blaze Boosters as they defeated the Talk N Text Tropang Texters garnering the score of 85-73, taking home the title by winning the series, 4 games to 3.
The loss was devastating to the Tropang Texters’ players, Chiqui Reyes (coach), and to their fans, particularly me. I felt bad because Petron’s victory derailed Talk N Text's hopes of achieving a historic grand slam. Despite the frustrating outcome of the game, still I congratulate them for showing such determination and aggressiveness. They could also be considered lucky because they have reached that far, which other teams aspire to. 
 I acknowledge these players for giving their full effort in for Talk N Text Tropang Texters: Jimmy Alapag, Fonacier, Ranidel, Castro, Williams and to their import, Baker who had once played for LA CLippers in NBA.
To the champions, Arwind Santos(MVP), Miranda, Cabagnut, and Grundy(import), keep the good job!

Though they weren’t able to bring home the bacon, in my heart, they always are winners, never losers.
