Greetings! Welcome to the latest edition of The Victory Formation.
I am sure everyone was surprised with what transpired on this end of the Pacific. If you were living under a rock, Japan just experienced their worst earthquake in centuries. I did not really feel it, but it surely affected my work as apparently, we rely on undersea cables that are routed to the US via Japan, thus rending my Friday as unproductive due to the quake. You have probably seen the different images and videos of the carnage brought about by the earthquake and the tsunami that followed. A very jarring thought, indeed.
How can you help? Here is a simple way of doing so.
Meanwhile, Philippine Football will be facing off against Mongolia for their 2nd leg of the AFC Challenge Cup on March 15, 12nn local time. To prepare for the frozen tundra, (Because after all, we are a tropical paradise) they trained in Japan. So, they were in the area where the quake happened. Fortunately, they are all fine and are already in Mongolia to train for the big game. I'm already plotting whether to go watch the game in a bar with fellow football fans.
