8 teams have tried. 2 remained dominant at first. 2 came from the south to challenge the other 4. But among the 6, only 2 prevailed as well.

Gearhead’s ‘A series of unfortunate events at the Shakey’s V-League’ part 2

Posted in Shakey's V-League, V-League Season 5, Volleyball News

Before reading Gearhead’s “A series of unfortunate events at the Shakey’s V-League” part 2, you should read part 1 first. And oh, you should also know what “to accost” means as Joey Villaluz (better known as Gearhead) has become very fond of using this term:

  • accost
    : to approach and speak to often in a challenging or aggressive way

This “series of unfortunate events” could have happened to me or any other typical Shakey’s V-League fan out there. This is really sad and unfair. This particular incident happened last May 11 (Sunday) during game two between University of San Jose and Far Eastern University. The USJ Lady Jaguars won in 5 sets: 20-25, 25-15, 24-26, 25-17, 15-10.

Okay, you can now start reading part 2…

Shakey’s V-League, NOT amateur-photographer-friendly anymore?

Posted in Shakey's V-League, V-League Season 5, Volleyball News

USJ guest player Mechell Matuguina spikes it hard

This photo may be (I hope not) one of the last photos I would be taking for the Shakey’s V-League Season 5. This photo as well as a few more selected ones were taken last May 4 at The Arena during the V-League debut game of Visayan team University of San Jose. They defeated the still winless College of Saint Benilde in 3 sets: 25-22, 25-20, 25-23. You can check out all the volleyball action photos at the Photo Gallery section.

So why “last photos”? Because Shakey’s V-League seems to be NOT too friendly anymore to amateur photographers (and “feeling” shutterbugs like me). I was informed by friends whom I got to know by watching the V-League games, that since it’s the Quarter Finals already, the management have decided to prioritize professional photographers coming from the Media. So ringside spots like the one behind the banners are now strictly for the pros only.
