Ateneo Blue Eagles is special to me - Manny V. Pangilinan
The Ateneo Blue Eagles is once again the UAAP Champion but the Lasalle Green Archers put up a great fight and the proof is in the final score. 88-86 Ateneo is the Season 80 champion.
The hard-earned championship did not come unnoticed as one of the biggest supporters and patron of the school, Manny Pangilinan, is giving these young kids an I phone X and a trip to Hong Kong.
“This is a team that’s quite special to me. I’ve been exposed to a lot of basketball in my life, and this team has been special to me since my first game,” said Pangilinan, according to a tweet by The Guidon.
Manny Pangilinan is also the main sponsor of the national team and the owner of Talk n Text, Meralco and NLEX basketball teams in the PBA has been an avid supporter of sports specifically basketball.
