PBA invades Tacloban

PBA on its road tour under the current KFC-PBA Philippine Cup came to Tacloban City Saturday,  November 29 providing local basketball fans with a first hand view of an exciting match between Purefoods TJ Giants and Air 21 Express at the Tacloban Convention Center, Tacloban City.

Purefoods handed Air 21 its 7th loss with a final score of 96-88.

It was a physical game. Not only for the players but for the thousands of fans who came in droves. We came in just as the match was about to start and as the Astrodome was fully packed to the brim, it was doubly hard for me to get vantage shots of the game.

  1. Again nice photos in action. Dako ngay-an iton Astrodome dida ha Tacloban. First time I saw PBA games in Tacloban, was during my school days in DWU. An venue, an hadton DWU Gym..after that game nasunog kinagabihan. Now, its great, we have a decent and big astrodome to cater big event like professional basketball games.

    Gerry, I would like to inform you that there will be a Nat’l Skimboarding Competition in Tanauan which will be held on Dec 27 – 30, 2008 in Bantay-Dagat Area of Tanauan. May I request if you could visit that event and posts some pictures here? Thanks a lot. I learned that skimboarding in Tanauan is great and the town produces a lot of champions not only locally but internationally as well. I believe that you can capture those flying boards, beautiful waves and great exhibitions by the skimboarders. Again, Thank you.
