Vuvuzelas in the UAAP? – Laughing Out Loud!


The University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) just announced that they will release a memo on August 20, 2010 for banning vuvuzelas in all UAAP events. Vuvuzela is a plastic brass instrument (horn) which make a buzzing sound like a swarm of bees. Very popular in the world of Association Football (also known as football or soccer) in the African continent and got a worldwide fame from last year’s Confederations Cup and the recently concluded Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup both held in South Africa. Aside from the UAAP, the Fédération Internationale de Basketball (FIBA) has already made an order for banning vuvuzelas in all FIBA regulated tournaments.

This coming sunday, in the much anticipated ADMU vs DLSU game, many fans from both schools especially coming from the blue-side are planning on using this famous horn. Just imagine, a close venue like Araneta Coliseum and everyone are blowing horns?

Being a fan and who loves to play football. I personally hate the previously concluded FIFA World Cup. First, because England was miserable on the field; second, the German psychic octopus has chosen Germany to win over England; and lastly, because of those annoying vuvuzelas. This year’s World Cup, I hardly heard the fanchants from different countries because the South African crowd keep on blowing those vuvuzelas. And now, the Filipinos will try to immitate the World Cup fever in a basketball game by using vuvuzelas. What a piece of flithy move, for me, the UAAP is already unique on its own with a rich tradition when cheering is concern, aside with the comic presence of Hector and Rolly Manlapaz in the venue as an added bonuses.

So why will you adopt or copy a way of cheering totally not appropriate on our setting. When the LA Lakers fans were chanting. . .

“na na na na, na na na na, hey goodbye”

over a losing Orlando Magic team. Then, they immediately adopted their own version when season 71 has started, and now you want to adopt another one that’s completely foreign in the basketball world.

Thank you to the UAAP Board and to the Araneta Management on banning those vuvuzelas, now when will you release a memo on banning the bias Rolly Manlapaz in the UAAP? L0L :p

Keep in mind the difference between a winner's and a loser's mentality. Winners focus on winning big—not just how to win, but how to win big. Losers, however, don't focus on losing; they just focus on getting by!


Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, raising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
