Well, I finally won my first ever basketball title after years of hurt and trying. . . all those times, standing in the sidelines. . . watching my friends winning basketball titles and all but not this time around. My team, Christchurch Eagles finished the round robin at the top of the table before beating the Foilers 81-67 in the finals of the 2013 Christchurch Social Basketball League (Monday Night Men's Division). Its not as prestigious as any club leagues or tournaments out there but still a title won nonetheless. Although, last night I was actually thinking and hoping that I don't really mind if my team loss this tourney if it means Gilas Pilipinas won the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship. That did not happen but at least the Philippines still qualified for the FIBA World Cup.
Anyway, congrats to my teammates and thanks for the great effort. Well done lads!
