Hail San Beda, hail the NCAA

29 08 2007

Sanity finally prevailed.

I’m very satisfied to hear last August 28, that San Beda initiated a public apology to its fellow NCAA member schools for camaraderie and brotherhood of the oldest collegiate basketball league.

Congratulations to the Policy Board Chairman and JRU President Vincent Fabella and other school members for accepting San Beda’s apology, initiated by none other than its President Fr. Mateo De Jesus.

San Beda was among the founding members of the NCAA which started way back in 1924. It was an unselfish act and a true professional Catholic institution. Here’s some wine glass for you father.

If all our political leaders will be like Father De Jesus, I’m sure there would be peace and progress in the country.

Whoever cast the first stone, whether San Beda or the NCAA Man Com or the NCAA Policy Board, the San Beda rector threw back bread. He let somebody slap his face then offer the other cheek.

Though no official recommendation from his fellow Policy Board members, De Jesus had ordered the Red Lions not to allow Aljamal play in San Beda’s remaining elimination round games as peace offering.

Everybody was satisfied during the ABS CBN’s press conference at the ELJ building last August 28, when San Beda and the NCAA shook hands for bringing the game back to where it really belongs – basketball court – and not in the court room.

I’m sure this is a great challenge for Frankie Lim, the Red Lions mentor, and San Beda when they meet Perpetual and Letran without starting forward Aljamal.

But I know San Beda will stay competitive, with Bam Gamalinda, Rogemar Menor, Raymond Maggay and Dave Marcelo expecting to fill the shoes of Aljamal.

Well, everybody has learned its lesson well. I hope we did learn something from this experience. The action initiated by all parties is a good example.

there’s nothing sane in apologizing for something that wasn’t wrong in the first place. just because things were settled amicably between the ncaa mancomm and san beda doesn’t mean all is well.

both sides surrendered, more so on the san beda side. no lesson learned here. san beda ran away like a dog with its tail between its legs. i don’t think that is something we should emulate.

Yeah, not much lesson learned but, i guess, Humility and other good Benedictine values…

Anyway, we’ve just proven the NCAA that red lions can do it without aljamal! SBC 96 – UPHR 78.

nice article, but it would be better if it’s
Animo San Beda! (we don’t yell HAIL!)

Wait.
“Animo San Beda” somehow sounds wrong.
“Animo” and “San Beda” don’t fit as well as “ANIMO” and “LA SALLE” do.
and “Animo Ateneo”? duh!?

Who was the first school to ever sing its Alma Mater after a basketball game?

Animo!

The Green Mind. I am a La Salista and you know that within our quarter, there is a disagreement on the meaning of animo.

Drop it.

De La Salle is the first school to sing the Alma Mater hymn after a game.

But Bedans know what “animo” means unlike La Sallians.

propoganda,

Animo San Beda sounds wrong? How come? for your info Animo San Beda translates to Courage! Sanbeda! For me Animo San Beda sounds better and we are true to the meaning of the word. Animo Lasalle is okay and so is Animo Ateneo. I guess it just depends on how you use it and from what school you are from… However in this article Hail SAN BEDA is appropriate given the situation.

30 08 2007
Animo!

propaganda, you are not a La Sallite.

If you are, then you are an embarrassment to us La Sallites.

Looking back at NCAA history, we have not much to be proud of. It was our football squad that gave us pride.

Our 1939 win against Ateneo was a big embarrassment. WE fielded an ineligible player thus the crown was taken away. Imagine, this was the ground zero of the the Ateneo-La Salle rivalry. Yet we forgot to mention to younger studenst that we did something wrong. The Chicken throwing was kid stuff. The scandal was for real.

Much of our so called glory days were in the 70’s . Prior to that, only a handful really cheer nor sing.

The prblem with fellow La Sallites, like this Green Mind, is their inability to look back at history.

This is what the new La Sallians lack. A sense of history.

But you do not listen to level-headed La Sallites. You listen only to the pep squad and the Gang Green for your history lessons.

Lastly, the Pumarens must be taken out of the system.

We may be in the minority but we must take take La Salle back!

30 08 2007
Animo!

To our Bedan friends, remember the time when the Ateneo was our common enemy?

I hope all schools will become common friends and the battle will be confined to the baskteball courts.

There is too much politics in sports. We too were maligned and paid our price.

Going back the article, it’s nice to hear that there are still schools that play fair. Nice article, josef.

Green Mind, fellow La Sallite, your proposal in your article is commendable. I agree.

well, whoever propaganda is, we really don’t care. i bet he’s not a lasallista nor a bedista. he does not know history. poor guy!

nag-post na ako before on the subject of animo but here again is what i think of it.

nobody can claim ownership to “animo”. any school can use it. but these days, the word is more associated with la salle.

if you see or hear someone whose battlecry is animo, most likely you’d think of that person as a lasallista.

fine, other schools can keep on using it. unless they want to be branded as a lasallista as well or be mistaken for cheering for la salle.

i bet a lot of you here will disagree to what i just posted. hehe. tuloy ang debate!

30 08 2007
GenoM

yeah ur right, a lot will disagree and I’n one of them. I acknowledge that the word is more associated with Lasalle but not to the extent that when used people will think you’re from LaSalle. I think people know that different schools use the word. But ur right, nobody can claim the ownership of the word “animo”

Animo,

You suddenly come onto to the scene and declare “we must take La Salle back”. Take it back from whom?

You talk about not knowing about history? For your information, I belong to a group called “Our Own Little Team La Salle Productions”. We were the firsta and only group who have produced video documentaries on the history of the institution. I wonder if you have even hear of the annual ANIMO NIGHT, which we have produced for the last 4 years. Go to You Tube and type OOLTLS in the search box and check out what we have done.

So before you accuse anyone of not knowing the history of La Salle, please check on who you are accusing.

Do you even know the history of the Alma Mater?

if we are to play a game called word play, then one of us will say “animo”! what would be the response of the other participants? it would be “La Salle”! not “San Beda”. not “Ateneo”.

this is what i meant by “mostly associated with” and people tend to assume if your battlecry is just the word “Animo”, “La Salle” would be the next thing on their minds.

tradition has something to do with this. traditionally, animo is La Salle’s battlecry.

are filipinos less catholic than the spaniards? of course not. it doesn’t matter where it originated. it’s a matter of how you adopt it as your own. and la salle beat all other schools to “animo”.

other schools can claim “animo” back as their own if they want to.

Dont mind me

but some other school in some other country prolly thought of “ANIMO” than any other school here in our country. 🙂

so that makes all of you copycats, so to say. 🙂

hahaha. joke lang.

Para walang away, ung mga nag-aangkin ng ANIMO sa inyo na paki-uwi na din sa bahay nyo para wala ng mag-aankin.

Kudos to the person who created that word.

By the way, this is a better article than the last time. Fairly done!

It can also be a case of chance. It was only during the late 90’s that LS has had a winning traidition in basketball, probably because of that when they used the word ANIMO it became popular together with their title teams (or even their bridesmaid finishes) Who knows what happened during the early years of the NCAA, Animo would have been more associated with either Ateneo or San Beda during those days. Pana-Panahon lang siguro. Malay mo, sa ibang school naman sya ma-associate…

Atom,

I was not there and dont know the details. But I have already written 2 articles about the lack of proper decorum by both leagues. In fact I suggested that the Samahan Baskeball ng Pilipinas take over the basketball management of both leagues.

topmil nuj,

Its a good thing your parents allow you to use the internet. Children like you should not be given that privelege.

Its easy to find me cos I have a picture here and I will definitely be in green on the La Salle side.

Why dont you just bend over and lick ur ass so you know how your face tastes.

Atenistang Lasallistang PLMayer

I made a personal research on the word “ANIMO” and its association to schools here in the Philippines. The dates are a bit confusing. Both Ateneo and San Beda can claim that battlecry as early as the 1940s, but the much-hyped game coverage of the UAAP today made viewers and basketball enthusiast or an ordinary audience associate ANIMO to La Salle.

Last Sunday’s match showcased the battle of owning the ANIMO yell. Both sides have their banners saying ANIMO. In an Ateneo site, a writer made a comment on a DLSU banner saying “THE REAL ANIMO!”

The phrase manifests that other schools can claim the ANIMO battlecry.

However, La Salle marketed the ANIMO battlecry very well, thanks to the emergence of the new media (e.g. friendster where Lasallians use ANIMO LA SALLE in their profile headlines, below-the-line materials like t-shirts and jackets using the word ANIMO) and the press coverage that pushed the audiences to believe that ANINO is for DLSU. They regularly use the D.L.S.U. ANIMO LA SALLE!!! cheer. You can see ANIMO on their website, on their notebooks, course/batch shirts, caps, and other small marketing collaterals. The bookstore inside the Bro. Connon hall bleeds ANIMO. They just released a new set of designs for the ANIMO jackets and shirts. Olympic Village stores have shirts with the ANIMO LA SALLE battlecry and that’s with a well written press release in a major newspaper. SM Department Store at once released an ANIMO La Salle shirt, and worst, even in Divisoria. The La Salle brand is somewhat tainted because of that, overused and often abused. Even in a DLSU sex video #5, the guy mentioned the phrase “ANIMO LA SALLE”.

Some alumni use ANIMO as a password to their career growth. The successful products of DLSU reminds his or her staff that ANIMO is for La Salle at the start of the school year for their sons and daughters, the opening of the UAAP, the basketball matches, the finals, the graduation season and even during that boring and long-stretched Friday evening meetings.

No other school dared, as of this time, to match up that strategy and produce massive numbers of marketing collaterals screaming the word ANIMO than La Salle. I never saw a bulk of ADMU or SBC printed shirt with SCREAMING ANIMO ON IT. Maybe I saw some from SBC and ADMU wearing their school’s ANIMO shirt strolling around the Gateway Mall, but nothing can match the competition and the production DLSU made to nail the ANIMO battlecry as their own.

Sports marketing are really an effective tool to strengthen the brand. The success of Samsung/Siemens (their presence in every sporting event) and Nike/Adidas as a global brand was because of the success of their sports marketing campaign. Similar to that of DLSU, the ANIMO battlecry became famous because of La Salle’s effective marketing of the word during the games and outside the hard court. The constant and unending ANIMO cheer made De La Salle University synonymous to that.

I saw someone posted the originally issues of the school’s cheer. I think, nothing can beat the somewhat jologs but very unique and very Filipino cheer. Just ask me for the lyrics.

ANIMO is a SPANISH term which means “Have Courage”

San Beda is a SPANISH name(St. Bede)
and La Salle is an IRISH name

so, which school should use the ANIMO? the SPANISH or the IRISH?
