PVF National Open 2008

Getting to know Allen Mendoza of Team Klownz

Posted in Notable Players, Philippine Volleyball Federation, PVF National Open 2008

I was very open on how I enjoyed the recently concluded PVF National Open 2008. Seeing my favorite players was really a pleasurable distraction from the corporate world. UAAP and NCAA standouts, veterans, street volley players and RP Team members graced the event to play the game we all love, volleyball.

Wearing their pink and green uniform, Team Klownz got the attention of volleyball enthusiasts. Backed-up by the popular comedy bar, the team’s popularity rose not because only by it’s name, but as well as its key players who gave their best performances. Among them was former UP-MVT alumnus Allen Mendoza. He is one of the reasons that the team’s debut performance ended on a high note, finishing second, beating the 8 other contenders. With the combination of his technical experience gained from the UAAP and the vast skills he acquired from actively participating in street leagues, Allen was really a force to reckon. Let’s get to know him by this no holds-barred and very free flowing interview.

I checked out most of online newspapers today just to see what’s under the Sports sections. It’s pretty obvious that everyone is still savoring Pacquiao’s ninth round TKO victory over David Diaz. The match was entitled “Lethal Combination” and it took place last June 28, 2008 at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel and Casino. I was able to watch the delayed telecast last Sunday (already knowing that the Pacman won over the radio coverage). It was a great fight every Filipino boxing fanatic is bound to remember. I also noticed Pacman’s English skills are getting better every time!

Going to back to Sports news, I was actually hoping to get some news about the PVF National Volleyball Open 2008. Sadly (and unfortunately expected), there weren’t too many newspapers covering the event. The only article I came across was this:
