Extreme Excellent Experience or Triple E – My 18 TDL

Wow ! I can’t believe that were down to the last one-third of our eighteen to-do-list of the year and to be honest there are a lot else available as options ahead as we head to the close out of the first quarter of the year .. that is despite the tensions in politics, finance, sports and those people that is still plaguing the environment conservation covering our air, land and sea precious habitat. Tons and tons of plastics were being fished from our oceans and a thousand hectare of forest were burned intentionally or due to extreme heat. The earth cycle is gearing to a new heights and getting prepared for it is a must for the next generation to come. Going back to the topic, extreme must meet with or faced with extreme enthusiastic front for you to enjoy the thrilling moment it offers. Here are my suggestions that you can consider for another adventure of your life for the year!

Keep safe while indulging into extreme activity and make sure you consult an expert or professionals who are experienced in doing these activities. Happy weekend everyone!

More and more people are buying the idea of facing their fears, the phobias they have in life and more sports and leisure facilities are incorporating such facilities to the existing place they have to cater to this not so ordinary experience touted as extreme sports or extreme excellent experience that some find it adventurous yet satisfying engagement they’ve even never done in their entire life.

Nature park, high rise buildings, skydiving, underwater dive, kayaking, canyoning, long trails, mountaineering, hiking, cliff diving, bridge diving, para-gliding and a lot more. Once you’ve done you’ll keep on doing it as many claims, the adrenaline and newfound strength will lift your motivation to seek more and find your new self with higher spirit and confidence.

It was even considered as one of the highlights of every corporate team building and outdoor annual activity in fostering camaraderie and bondage. Don’t wait for your company to have it, look for it and have fun while you’re about to face your greatest phobia at once.

Go out and book that para-sailing extra this summer and be ready to see and conquer your fear by overturning it for fun.

Excel in anything you do and go beyond your limitations to experience the thrill encapsulate with it. – Paquito

Le Bron James, The Greatest Of All Time once He Retire.. Agree?

The debate halls are once again very much alive with the current basketball generation of greats and iconic player to ever play the game. There was an article where a Basketball Hall of Fame awardee said “a debate is constantly raise as to who is a better player, pitting greats of different era and of different class.. for me, It is how a player reacts to the social pressures attached to the game and not the way he play and accomplished things out there… ” And if we are to gauge the way team owners, managers and players opinion with the same question disregarding the era, generation or time of existence, it seems most of us will agree that the kid from Akron, Ohio stand tall among the rest with the way teams are going after his services with one mission at hand which is to regain the popularity of their team.

For the first time the All Star Game were reformat to instill a little “competition” and excitement for the fans around the world, stimulated our thoughts who the real and top of his class is…. and that is Le Bron James.

And the excitement continues as a billboard boldly entices the King to join the “Trust Process” team in order for them to “Complete the Process”.

My question is this, there is no doubt that the super power forward Le Bron James is the fastest, talented, high game IQ and the most to create mismatch in the position to ever play the game. He can trust his agility if wants to and many have proven it by winning several championships. With the free agency looming from the horizon, whichever team Le Bron James choose to be with is bound to win a championship, agree? And not until another bigger, faster and brighter player arrives the door of any NBA team… Le Bron James will hold for a time the acronym the GOAT regardless of generation, era or time.

Hey basketball fans, do you like the what you’ve read… then send me your thoughts and opinion even if you are a fan or not of Le Bron James but a die hard fan of the game! See you..

Let me share to you one of the most strongest quote from one of the best in basketball.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Sports and Hobbies – My 18 TDL

The Pacific Ring of Fire is reminding us that it is there to form part of the future shape of earth to come at the expense of natural phenomena such as volcanic eruption, earthquake of great magnitude that triggered a tsunami and even vast landslides claiming lives and properties. As a man, we can never be superior when it come to such nature’s willful way of maybe readying the planet to a kind of weather patterns that it is destined to. Are we off to a new beginning or we are doomed for good? But before we go to that wild imagination lest us go back and regain our senses as we gotta continue life no matter what. So here we go! Sharing to you another part of my to do list which am sure you’ll loved to do also…

img_8159

The blood of a true champion flows right into your veins, runs with the family and will always be a part of your DNA, but you don’t wanna call it quits or go away for good. Why not get yourself or your sight to a new hobby or sports discipline that you’d never tried before? Meeting new people of great status of that particular hobby like photography opened up a new avenue of excitement or something to look forward to. Don’t dwell yourself to a sports or hobby that you’ve been doing for decades. Let that sportsman’s heart shout and go after a new one or set of discipline that will measure your skills and wits to its peak… again or for the nth time.

Participate again to compete and enjoy, that’s the real importance of doing this list. To get better and strive for greatness all throughout the process.

FIBA WC 2023 – PHI-JAP-IND

“The Power of Three” and “Play It Louder Than Ever.”

The end of the year just painted the widest smile in every hoops fans in these three countries as  FIBA Central Board officially announced and formally endorsed it to the world. Excitement envelope our heart as we try to imagine things come 2023 ! that’s six full years and we collectively look at the line up of potential candidate to don the national colors from the ranks of junior to senior high varsity teams and the remaining strength of those young guns in the current team.

The announcement just fuel up the programs for basketball leagues, to find great talent, to train harder with a great length of time for preparation and gone is the reason of short training, jiving up, cohesion and whatever you may want to call it.

Were hoping that there’ll be no game of politics along the way but pure solid support for the team, the lack of long term program thinking must shelve and create a committee of professionals to attend to the rigors of preparation, programs, training’s, player selection, and others.

So who are your team for the coming 2023 FIBA World Cup ? Bear in mind that they should be able to withstand a long term commitment, sacrifices and dedication with one full goal and that is to win the coveted gold and eventually see our flag in the Olympics.

Name your team and lets start a very good conversation till the national team evolves into one of the most best formed team in the history of Philippines Basketball Team.

My first take is to have KAI SOTTO start training exclusively in the US under the trainer of Giannis Antetokounmpo ! – Paquito 

Rejected or Ejected

Any referee must see the whole thing with impartiality, without any vested interest and must maintain that unbiased judgement all throughout the prescribed time in the determination of results. A lot must be in different fence or ideologies when it comes to the recent debacles the referees were in for the NBA current season games but this time it involves the superstars in their own will… from Carmelo Anthony to Kevin Durant. Some labeled it as nasty while for the others they’ve opined it as just and deserving. Whilst we forgot that the 11th, 12th and 13th man on the floor presence were duly recognized by both teams and the fans were all but there to witness the game.

Some have expressed their disappointment through their social media accounts, given their status in the league as role models and risking the multi million dollar endorsement contract they have. Then this meant real issue they got to face if they want the fans to stay in those pricey bleachers aight…

The fans are there to witness high intense and close game as possible as they can and when the assigned arbiter take things into their hands the outcome not only displeases the fans but the main act themselves.. the players.

For the meantime, congratulations to the new UAAP Season 80 Basketball champion the Ateneo De Manila University Blue Eagles who dethroned the De La Salle University Green Archers in the final score of 88 – 86, where both teams have high respect to the officiating all throughout the game. Nice game.

Go by the rules no more no less. – Paquito

Cheap-Prized Moves

Packing up your team with a load of stars is an act of fear in disguise of rebuilding. The trend in sports have become a culture of will to win the championship at the expense of bringing together superstars and wreck havoc to those whose values are still patterned for ages. To receive a salary way too low the market value is tantamount to acknowledging the mission not to compete fair and square but with overload of power and deceit.

But who’s to blame? The team owner or the players? They’re claiming to they wanted to be the marquee player, the floor director, the leader of the band or the alpha of the team but they chose to go with teams who’ve gone through the playoffs instead of signing with those bottom finishers.

Gone are the character of a total warrior, competitor or up to the challenge players who’ll stick it through pain and pride all year long. The game has become a circus instead of a competition. An event instead of a ball game.

It’s the same old story, beaten by a team assembled through faithful drafts and resorted to labeling it as a super team in order not to lose the “best team tag” from the other division. What else shall we hear next time?

People are tired of seeing orchestrated stories, fans wants to witness competition where skill and strategies are played on the court not in the paper. – Paquito

Rebuilding means Strengthening , What You can learn from the CP3 Trade and Its Corporate Significance

Hello to all, fellow bloggers who never ceases to inspire our dear readers who we all valued and love for taking time to read our articles anytime of the day and what is more rewarding was they all come from all corners of the world, from Israel to China and South Africa. Thank you and May the Es-pirit de Corps always emerge and respected.

I’ve just hit the gym and when I went out CP3 is now a Rockets!.. this was one of the million of reactions from an avid fan of the league. From his own point of view, he was caught by surprised but not with the people and team owners and executives involved with the huge change as they’ve been aiming to aggressively rebuild their core team and they want it fast… thus acquisition of CP3 for the Houston Rockets with a lot of players getting the boot to make a wider space for their prize find from the trade market … making them , hmmm according to some league expert as the third best team in the NBA.

We’ve seen this happening many times, players taking their guns through social media and other memes way of letting their opinion be heard and it was clearly logical for the team executives to exercise the legal way of doing the re-alignment process of their turf favorably conducive for their commercial and league athleticism  standards. Corporate worlds has the same scenarios, middle level manager up to the high level management positions are clouted with consistent movement both initiated by the company and it employees by severing ties and bringing their talent to a place or organization they hope will give them the best of both worlds every heart desires.

Company owners have their own fears covering the whole belt of the organization they’ve had put up with their bare hands and dreams…  that employees are the most important resources they have and always assure to it the everybody gets the fair share and no one be left out once a performance bonus are handed out. Lest we must not forget that change is the only permanent thing in this world. Personal rebuilding is therefore a must if we wanted to stay in the league of our own where politics, competition and growth are all but realistic tangibles we need to surpass in order to be marketable as everybody wanted to call it.

You must knew your strengths and where to put or bring it for you to become an extra ordinary effective employee without exception to the rule. Today you might be very effective to the procedural matters of your organization but sooner or later with the never ending robotics and scientific approaches, these becomes immaterial that we found ourselves on the obsolete end of the process making the presence inappropriate.

While the acquisition of new talent versus the seasoned ones are the most common comparison and hard to swallow reality for both fences involve , a close weigh in analysis plays vital when it come to the long term direction of any organizations have in the future. This means that whenever your talent is turned down or not given any consideration it doesn’t mean that you’re not qualified but its just that your talent might be over-valued or undervalue for their needs given their long term plans.

As most of the veteran singers or performers always say, You’re only as good as your last song or performance . Never Stop Rebuilding and Continue Strengthening Yourself – Paquito

Paquito Answer for the Day 34

Still gaga over the finest and competitive sports happening in the world, from Basketball NBA 2017 Finals to French Open the Roland-Garros Tennis Championship and the US Major Baseball League that  keeps the people busy spending summer hours witnessing the best of the best compete and learn a thing or two from it. These sports momentous events should not escape your attention as it is well promoted, talked-about and discussed all over the open cafe’s, restaurants and pubs and even right inside your very own living room or theater room as you wanted to call it.

This lead us to asked, if sports is about camaraderie why does everyone has to compete ? Why just don’t play and hand over the prestigious accolades to the one or team that are willingly subscribing to give it to the one who played it below par performances? To remind him to spent more hours practicing the sport ? Wouldn’t it be fair to do such gentleman act of sportsmanship to which the sports-competition is greatly tied.

Maybe the reasons are quite obvious, the one who spent most of their hours perfecting their crafts and skills always end up the winner as evident with the grace and poised they  showed during the competition.  As we enter the middle week of the midyear month, let’s ask ourselves how do we compete with the world ? Are we still competitive or we need to take back our feet to the grind and revisit the errors we made and the blunders we take and go out and a lot better, competitive, this time stronger than the last 6 months. You will not regret it, am sure.

Stay competitive and stay on the game and beat the odds of life. – Paquito

NBA FINALS 2017- Best Opinion from a Fan, What’s Your’s Buddy?

Here is one of the best opinion from a legit NBA fan from the Philippines who shares his observation in technical and historical way on how the story of the NBA 2017 Finals will about to unfold. Live Score while writing this article is 29-18 in favor of Cleveland Cavaliers after a trey from KD with 4:44 to go in the First Quarter.  Your Comments and suggestions please.

The Golden State Warriors will be the new NBA champs a few minutes from now, IF they’d be able to close out game 4 in the Cleveland Cavalier’s home-court. Yes, they have literally toyed with the Cavs for the past 3 games, even when the 2 best players of Cavs in Lebron & Kyrie,  gave the best they could in game 3  (I gave everything I had. LBJ) , Cavs almost win,… almost.

GSW should be able to close out the series today, IF the ghosts of the past won’t hunt them, what ghosts were talking here? KD with OKC last year up 3-1 against GSW, lost to Curry and the Warriors. GSW (73-9), up 3-1 vs Cavs, failed to close out, and…

I’m sure everyone still remembers what happened next. Lebron , Kyrie ,Love & the Cavs will be part of history IF GSW is bent on closing out the finals today (GSW 16-0) , its just that they’d be on the negative side of that story. But if , Cavs would be able to win this one at home after giving it all that they could, its win or go home for them, we might be in for another great comeback from LBJ, who’s visited the Philippines, where basketball is treated like the national sport, and where everyone knows that never say die spirit from the Big J, who knows?

LBJ might actually be a fan of the Big J too.

NBA Finals ; Cavs Must Win All Games! Do You Still Believe They Can ? Read it Here

All I was looking at is the bottom of the net and I’ve been working on that shot my whole life…. For that one to go was liberating.” Kevin Durant said during a post game interview that saw his new team the Golden State Warriors one win away to the Championship podium.

Will you give up when the going get’s tough and the chance to do it become tougher than it should’ve use to be? This is the very nature of challenging situation that multi-awarded basketball MVP LeBron James and his teammates are now facing.  No more room left for excuses, no more space for error and no fraction of a seconds is worth left unused for every time they play the opponent who are determined to dethroned them in four chances resume the best of seven series at the Cavaliers home court, the Quicken Loans Arena in Ohio USA.

Will Lebron and the Cavaliers be Able to Equalize? Here are my Suggestions!

The ball is round as expected from those die hard fans (DefendTheLand) who still believes that the team has also four chances to still win it and that it’s just made the series more excited but realistically complicated if not frustratingly difficult, if only they could’ve been able to turn back the hands of time and put on the correct plays and defensive stops.

Let me put it this way, the defending champs have all four chances to win it game after game till the last seventh of the series while the Golden State Warriors have the same number of chance to close it game after every game and the same amount of literal energy, intensity and intelligent way to win it and close the best of seven series of the National Basketball Association 2017 Finals and return back the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy to the Bay Area.  Your comments are highly valuable to the NBA fans.
