SAN Miguel Beer made history by being just the second team to win a Perpetual Trophy after taking its third straight Philippine Cup championship in the Philippine Basketball Association.
Still, the Beermen are far from satisfied.
WINNING their third straight PBA Philippine Cup title, the San Miguel Beermen have further solidified their standing as the best locally composed team in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) right now.

THREE straight times they competed in the finals of the most prestigious conference of the Philippine Basketball Association and every time they emerged victorious -- and now the San Miguel Beermen have a share of PBA history.
Beating the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings, 91-85, in Game Five of their best-of-seven Philippine Cup finals last night, the Beermen closed out the series, 4-1, to win their third consecutive All-Filipino title, joining the Talk ’N Text franchise (2010-12) as the only teams in league history to accomplish such feat.
BLACKWATER has joined the list of teams with an import for the upcoming 2017 Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup, choosing to tap NBA veteran Greg Smith for the mid-season tournament.

History has been made again.

A PHRASE very often heard from anti-mining advocates is “Common Good”. You need more than your fingers on one hand to count how many times someone like the DENR secretary-designate mentions this term while making a one-hour PowerPoint presentation, and more than your fingers on your two hands if the presentation is even longer.Read more ...
Today was supposed to be the day of the first hearing by the Commission on Appointments on the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. An interesting nominee who, on one hand, says what she does is what is right and she doesn’t care about being confirmed, and on the other has been doing media rounds and social media rounds and visiting legislators for purposes of... confirmation!Read more ...
