The last time the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings played at the Philippine Arena, they ended the night as back-to-back Governors' Cup champions. That game was attended by 54,086 PBA fans. And since it included the crowd darlings, the Gin Kings, a big percentage of the crowd was seen wearing red shirts. Red is the color of Christmas. Red is the color of Ginebra's dark jersey. And, red is the color of love. Come Christmas Day, we can expect the Philippine Arena to be filled with red-shirted fans anew as the PBA announced that the Gin Kings and Magnolia, formerly the Purefood Star Hotshots, will face off for the Christmas Edition of the Manila Clasico.

The announcement was made along with the partial release of the initial schedule of the PBA Philippine Cup which is originally set to open on December 17, 2017 which will feature the San Miguel Bermen opening their title defense against the Phoenix Fuel Masters right after the opening ceremony which will happen at the Big Dome.

The venues for the initially scheduled games will include the Big Dome, Cuneta Astrodome, San Juan Arena and of course, the Philippine Arena which will also be the venue for the first Christmas Day game which will feature the NLEX Road Warriors versus the GlobalPort Batang Pier right before Manila Clasico.

Speaking of the Manila Clasico, who will win on Christmas Day?

The Gin Kings are coming off a championship run so we can expect them to come out firing on all cylinders come to the Philippine Cup and against Magnolia, expect the Twin Towers of Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar to dominate the battle as they have always been doing in the past. With a healthy GregZilla, nothing is impossible for the Gin Kings.

Conclusion

Assuming that the season will open on schedule, Manila Clasico on Christmas Day at the Philippine Arena will be a big boost not just for Ginebra but for the entire PBA community because it will allow the fans to have a PBA Christmas at the biggest dome in the world. Just imagine the happiness of the fans if Ginebra will win the game. Priceless!

Just what you can do or buy with the bonuses given to the players?
Last week, Ginebra captured their first back to back Governors Cup Championship. A few days ago,  they celebrated with the fans and today, Ginebra players are either buying a new car, a vacation house or enjoying their hard earned bonus money. 
But just how much money did the players actually get?

According to a good friend and a Ginebra insider, each players were given different amounts of bonuses depending on their salaries and performances during the finals. So, you can safely say that Justin Brownlee and LA Tenorio are the most fortunate. The rest of the players, however, seems very happy as well with what they got. The big boss of SMC is looking to make an impression to the players to keep them motivated or in Ginebra term "Ganado".

We were told that the equivalent amount could be 10x more their…
