Ateneans might be interested in this book.


After 20 years the Ateneo De Manila Blue Eagles have once again completed a back-to-back championship in the UAAP Men's Basketball Tournament. A once-moribund program has come full circle through a lot of blood, sweat and tears, and the tireless effort of so many men and women, from the players to the coaches to the team management and the team patrons.

Through it all the fans - the legendary Blue Eagles Sixth Man - have remained constant, steadfast and firm believers in their beloved Blue Eagles. From the most heartbreaking losses to the the most glorious victories, it is the Ateneo fans who lustily cheered the Blue Eagles to this incredible back-to-back crown. Gameface - the country's first and only online hardcore basketball authority thru it's popular Blue Eagles' Nest (BEN) Forum - is the preeminent sounding board of the Blue and White legions. Now in the works, it will soon present this chronicle of Ateneo's Sesquicentennial Back-to-Back UAAP championship of 2008 and 2009 as told by the Ateneo hardcore fans themselves.

Hardbound. Full gloss. Full color. 8.5" x 11" size. More than 200 pages of content which includes game per game narratives, analyses, highlights, and sideshows as written and arranged by Collegiate Basketball authorities and Ateneo Fans themselves (BENistas in particular). 200 photos. Topics cover from recruitment and a possible peek in Season 73 and those players waiting in the wings. You will be surprised to know that most of you are in this book thru your BEN Forum posts and photos in the games.
