Recent NBA Playoffs (Suns vs. Spurs) and Philippine Election Winners

I am happy for the Phoenix Suns especially Steve Nash who finally won over the San Antonio Spurs yesterday in their match-up after many years of futility. Nash was again bloodied like a boxer reminiscent of his bloodied nose in one of their playoff match-ups in the past with the Spurs when the latter won.

Not this time. Nash with one eye shut after getting 6 stitches willed the Suns to sweet victory teaming up with Stoudemire to finish off the Spurs.

Things were really different this time as they switch places. The Spurs who were very tough and "dirty" with Bowen, Horry and Oberto before were relatively "softer" this time around with Richard Jefferson not performing well as expected. The Suns on the other hand who were thought of as soft during D' Antoni's time were now tough and gritty. They were a hustling team with a never-say-die attitude thanks to their bench of Dudley, Frye, Amundson and Dragic plus the good defense of the "reinvented" Grant Hill.

Who would have thought the Suns would reach this position? Well, they have a big task at hand in their match-up. The Mighty Lakers. Win or lose though, the Suns have already overachieve. I am just happy for them.

On the other hand, I am not so happy with the results of yesterday's elections. Below are some interesting results:

  1. In the Senatorial race, as of this time, Lito Lapid is in at number 11 beating out Risa Hontiveros and Ruffy Biazon so far.
  2. Bong Revilla and Jinggoy Estrada are top 1 and 2 senators respectively, ahead of veteran lawmakers Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Frank Drilon and JP Enrile.
  3. Lilia Pineda leads over Ed Panlilio
  4. Dy leads over Grace Padaca
  5. Manny Pacquiao appears to win as Congressman. Will that have an effect in his boxing career?
  6. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will most likely become a Congresswoman
