I knew it. I should have not hoped for a game 3 and should have woke up and watch the game live at The Arena. I haven’t watched any V-League games live for a long time now. Congratulations again to the Lady Eagles.

By any chance, did anybody record the games? Please share 🙂

Will post more Shakey’s V-League action photos in a while… By the way, today is Lady Eagle Ayel Potnongon’s birthday! She must have been Ateneo’s lucky charm today. Happy bday Ayel!
