Allan Caidic's 79 points (Presto Tivoli vs. Ginebra San Miguel)

Twenty years ago (November 21, 1991), Filipino Triggerman Allan Caidic set the PBA all time record for the most points scored by a Filipino in a single game, the most points scored in a single half and a single quarter, and the most three-point field goals made in a single game just to name a few. He reclaimed the most points by a local record from Paul Alvarez, who broke Caidic's previous record of 68 points. Allan Caidic broke his own three-point field goals made in a game record for the second time.

It was one of the greatest individual performances in the PBA history at the time when players fight for the ball whether if its in the air or in the floor, when players were not scared of getting injured or when basketball was not about the money but about the love of the game.

The game took place at the same time as Allan Caidic's wife gave birth to their firstborn child

Philippine Basketball Association all-time records set by Allan Caidic on November 21, 1991:
  • Most points scored in a single game by a Filipino (79)
  • Most points scored in a single half (53)
  • Most points scored in a single quarter (37)
  • Most number of three-point field goals made in a single game (17)
  • Most number of three-point field goals attempts in a single game (27)
  • Most number of three-point field goals made in a single quarter (9)

Here is the video(s) of that game courtesy of basketbola80:

"Coming Home" by Skylar Grey (No P. Diddy or Dirty Money)



"Coming Home"
by Skylar Grey 

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
tell the world I'm coming...

Remembrance Day (11:11 11/11/11)

Well back in November 11, 1918, the Great War of Empires (also known as the First World War or if you still didn't get it: World War I) ended at the 11th hour (11:00 AM) of that day. Today (93 years since that day), of course, at the time of the posting of this entry is the 11:11 11/11/11. We should remember and honor those men who fought and died for their respective Flags and Countries in the First and Second World Wars.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields.
 
~ John McCrae, 3 May 1915



Let us also remember and pray those who are (right now) away from their love ones.



This video is overwhelmingly touching and it will surely make you burst into tears..

When you forget your blessings - Psalm 103

Psalm 103 (The Bible, King James Version)

The benefits of the LORD
A Psalm of David.

[1] Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
[2] Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
[3] Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
[4] Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
[5] Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
[6] The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
[7] He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
[8] The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
[9] He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
[10] He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
[11] For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
[12] As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
[13] Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
[14] For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
[15] As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
[16] For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
[17] But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
[18] To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
[19] The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
[20] Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
[21] Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
[22] Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
