Paquito Quote for the Day 43

Taking up something without any intention to let anyone knew it, is a big NO, especially if you are someone being looked upon as a role model of a law abiding citizen not only of your mother country but as to the whole world as well being recognized and affiliated with one of the favorite sports of the world.  The question lies between why and why  alone. Was it the urge of nature ? Was it flowing unto their genes ? Was it because their dumb reasoning can never be really considered as acceptable that they forgot to  process the cons of their act.

Respect the norms and the norms will respect you . – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 41

You can never change people’s thought in anyway you wanted and what they believe in when it comes to your own predicament. An analyst branded Kevin Durant as the P.O.A.T, or what he said was the Pettiest Of All Time, though another analyst or pod-caster defended the acts and the reason behind those petty things at least for the critique as to many why’s that KD had resorted to such Twitter blast directed toward the former organization where he grew up and molded to what he is right now.

Can anybody blame him for what he’d done? I myself can’t but to learn from those actions committed by one of the best player to come to the NBA.

Look, listen and learn … that’s the best part of it when a star is glowing beyond capacity. – Paquito

The average age of the current population are either into super-active or semi-active workout ranging from weekly, bi-weekly or daily routines with single aim in sight… to stay physically fit and healthy in whatever way they can to stay sharp and fierce as they want. While most of them are doing it or into it to shave excess fats and lower their cholesterol level others do it to maintain agility even past the age of 70’s.

After a thorough and heart pounding activities most of us turn to what we call the post-workout-meal to support the loss energy and inner strength of our muscles which differentiate everyone from each in terms of food types, intake and volume.

Re-hydration is another key factor if you are into training or workout s the amount of sweat you’ve produced defines the amount of energy loss or used during the deal. How do you re-hydrate, what kind of liquid you need? Does a low-calorie packed drinks can serve your needed liquid, perhaps some smoothies will seal enough your needs immediately after. See, it doesn’t define at all to drink this drink that low-cal bottles but it depends on your genetic framework. While some consume a 500 ml bottle of hydrated salt before start training or workout, some do it afterwards but with the same aim in view which is to stay or keep hydrated.

Will several fruits crushed into smoothies can served the post-workout need as a meal? How about couple of wheat breads with a glass of milk or apple juice? Others eat their pre-freeze avocado smoothies combined with aqua mineral to stay full but oil-free after workout. So what are the best combination for a post-workout-meal? Yogurt, boiled eggs waiting inside your fridge?

best-post-workout-foods

Here is my two-cent word for this, better consult the expert advice of a registered Nutritionist and Dietitian  to determine your proper choice of foods to take after every intense workout. The right amount and timing are some of the greatest factors every active individual should learn. Consult those who are strict with their food intake and be aware of signals or key points they’ll share as those might not be fittingly the same for your own needs due to genetics difference and body types. And this might be the best time to see your personal physician in order for you to determine your current health alert status prior to indulging to any active cross training suitable for your age.

How about you, what is your preferred post-workout-meal? Share it and let’ the world known the positive effects it have for the next generation to come.

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.

Warriors Sweep the Spurs heading to the NBA Finals for the Third Time!

The NBA fever is heating up as the bold predictions of basketball gurus and fans are slowly taking shape ! We can never be excited with the recent win of the Boston Celtics versus the defending NBA champs, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now that the Golden State Warriors have flexed its muscle via multiple sweep that started with the Portland Trailblazers where Damian Lillard predicted a bold 4-2 victory in favor to them then followed by four to nothing western semifinals game with the Utah Jazz that seen its future in Gordon Hayward who was the only Jazz player to put up good numbers versus the Warriors defenders. And finally in the recently concluded western conference finals games against the San Antonio Spurs, Kevin Durant who’ve missed several games into the playoffs have made his presence felt by helping the Warriors trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green sweep the best of Texas area where most of the observers have expressed their opinions that..

“it would have been a different series should the Spurs leading scorer have not encountered that ungrateful ankle injury off a three point shot”

with Zaza Pachulia who in turn also got injured in the succeeding game and unable to play till the clincher.

The question now is , will the Warriors challenge the defending champion if ever the Cleveland Cavaliers close the series in their next two games , at home and at the TD Garden for Game 5. It is a different Warriors roster as compared to last year, gone were Andre Bogut, Harrison Barnes and Speights who are somehow part of the wrecking crews of Coach Steve Kerr.

Aside from KD as the major addition to the team, center Javale McGee provides not only the height and muscle inside the paint but his agility is nowhere near for a challenge versus any of the Eastern finalist team. Tristan Thompson is a little slower and Al Horford lacks the power to slow down McGee.


It’ll be a battle of torching the rims with consistent treys and free throws. Man for man the Warriors has a little edge in 1-2 position against the Cavs, but at the 3-4 it’s the other way around. We are about to see a battle of tenacity and sacrifices from both teams as these two have a score to settle way back two seasons. Though am not writing off the Celtics to score an upset with their depleted lineup, the way Boston guys have responded to the challenge of getting drown in the hole is remarkable. The big question is if Le Bron James will continue his poor performance in Game 3 or he’ll come with guns blazing to finish off the Celtics in Game 5 ? That needs to be seen as we can never tell what adjustments are the Celtics and Coach Brad Stevens are cooking up in Cleveland in order to duplicate the path they’ve done with the Wizards.

Think about this, the supporting crews of the Cavaliers are mere audience to Kevin Love’s shooting clinic that they’ve forgot to manned the wing in its entirety that the Celtics were able to break lose and penetrate the paint with Kelly Olynyk scoring in silence off an outstanding performance versus the Wizards.

Boston played smarter than the Cavs with the way Coach Brad Steven handled the game in short Ty Lue was out-coached, period. What is clear right now is this … the Golden State Warriors are on their third trip to the NBA Finals waiting as if to defend the lost title not to regain it with the way the series have transpired in the west.

We let the Spurs go as the Celtics are showing it’s not luck in winning games in the east with the Cavaliers defending its land while the Dub nation are watching. – Paquito

2017 NBA Playoffs Fearless Forecast 

Behind the powerful performances of marquee players led by Russell Westbrook of OKC Thunder barging into the all time single season record for most triple-doubles surpassing the old record done by the Big O’ Oscar Robertson.

The sweet 16 pairings as shown paints a picture of potential upsets and lopsided pairing based on the stats and power rankings. Here are my fearless forecast as to who’ll show up and bow out of contention for the Division Titles. Here’ we go.

Utah – LAC = 4-2 UTAH img_9374

ATL – WAS = 4-3 WAS

OKC – HOU = 4-2 OKC

MIL – TOR = 4-1 TOR

MEM – SAS = 4-2 SAS

IND – CLE = 4-1 CLE

POR – GSW = 4-1 GSW

CHI – BOS = 4-1 CHI

At the rate the games are played, it is very evident that not all the coaches are solved with the way the referees are handling delicate calls during end games, while some superstars are not being challenge well with their opponents, expect them to breeze through the division title games. Your team not in the favorites, relax this is just a forecast based on the rankings and stats, actual results may vary depends on the health and teamwork any of the sixteen teams involved in the playoffs. Enjoy the game.

Forecasting is a great exercise to determine your depth of understanding of any particular situation. -Paquito

To Stop Fake news , Start it with You

People are now fed with an overflowing substance of mix of various stories “real time” with the aid of technology. We are now readily aware of what’s cooking in every palate of consequential events and important happenings in and out of our own country.

Four decades ago news bits of all topics will reach your doorsteps a week delayed or worst months if the assigned writer failed to beat the deadline set prior to its printing. Imagine the highlights of its storied substance and the next couple of weeks you’ll be saddened by it’s not so current status that the same person have committed acts in defiance to what was decided and or suffered missteps along the way.

We filtered our baskets with those which that is only interesting for us, needless to say it somehow limit the chance to learn a bit of everything we can easily access and browse then fill our thoughts of information and ideas with the logical ones.

While the old school broadsheets are mostly occupied with politics and sensational news headlines, it is still the sports topic that provides balance at least in a non biased way of climaxiculated  stories and put or give credit to the person concerned unless it was provided by the firm or teams PR man.

While your trash might be a treasure for others, garbage news are considered as goldmine for those talented manipulators who are also known as the Picasso, Van Gogh and even Da Vinci of the modern times. They’re so talented enough to paint a picture of victory and acceptance vis-a-vis the opposite truth of the same, using the intricacies of technology that we are all rejoicing and treated as the holy grail of all inventions when it comes to the way people communicate and express the ideas or reaction anytime, anyplace and any topic we want. Providing a thousands of “liker’s” and “share’rs” to get the immediate attention they want and capitalize onto it without mercy and concern with the general public reactions and ideals. New sells is what they used to think about even if its fabricated or not. With the tremendous options and possibilities the technology could offer, everybody have turned into an instant story tellers through their social media handles with the load of photographs, blogs, quotes and pod-casting. Who could have imagine that the current generation can witness the every game stats of professional players and create a better look ahead analogy of the next team’s game.

We are witnessing the highs seas of the technology and its enormous potential in its highest forms that we should take advantage at through proper and responsible use. The think before you lick slogan is a great reminder for everyone of us that we must start the responsible use from our very own turf.

You must think faster than you click in order to ensure you’re on top of every social media situation and put control before it controls you haphazardly. – Paquito

Endurance in Willingness is the Key

Good morning my dear readers and fellow bloggers, it’s summertime once again here in the Philippines and everyone’s mind is preoccupied with white sands, blue salty waters and great sunrise and sunset. But for some who have no luxury of lengthy time to get away from work are satisfied with summer games. Yes you hear it right, summer games are the best time to hit open tennis courts, football field, oval tracks and caged courts. Sports buff from all ages are a pretty sight to see especially those past their prime of 60’s hitting the fields in their comfy bikes and joggers suit.

Though its not enough for others to do it with their motto of “the mind is willing but the body is not”  isn’t it our willingness that truly matters when it comes onto an activity requiring physicality and constant endurance? Chinese sexagenarians are a staple in every open halls doing their old rituals and forms of meditations, yoga and martial arts movement which is to stay fit not only mental but emotional and physical as well.

And for everybody to enjoy the summer, they must put in the same amount of enthusiasm in willingness to do things within their limited and acceptable level of satisfaction and prolong their participation and keep improving the mental and physical toughness we all wanted.

The itch to do it remains intact till the last sweat of willingness drops. – Paquito

Paquito Answer for the Day 28

Recognition is the full closure process of the over-all accomplishment of each individual in an organization, academe, sports, politics, government sanctioned examinations and for others due to exemplary contribution to a vital cause that creates improvement and potential changes in an industry or community.

Some are asking, is it healthy asking or soliciting opinions while the process  of details are still on the data collection and be subjected to comparative analysis.. I bet no. For as long as the competition is on the process, anything is bound to happen and that predictive opinions are just mere statement of facts based on the data collected or just a series of hopes and falsum nuntium.

Better enjoy the run rather than be worries of the runners. – Paquito
