What the hooph is going on?
We’re editing the site, and the 6 year old “about page” too. I am saving this cheezy about page right about now. Posting here for remembrance. (Teary eyed)
HOOPS.blink.ph is a Philippine blog about basketball and other sports close to our (Filipinos) hearts. We strive hard to be one of most definitive and vibrant Philippine Basketball sites on the internet.
A FUN Basketball Blog/Magazine where you can get the latest basketball news and views, special features, “top-ten” lists, rumors, news, links, valued (and sometimes freaky) visitor comments, etc.
Join the fun and the conversation. We’ve got it all covered, NBA, PBA, UAAP, NCAA, International Hoops, US NCAA, other leagues and other Pinoy Sports as well. We’ll cover even inter-barangay leagues (try us, contact us).
We are NO mainstream media writers. We try to write entries from fans’ perspective. We try to think and write outside the box. We try to entertain and we try to challenge you to give out your opinions. We are open to comments, suggestions and intellectual criticisms. Thus, while bringing our contributors views, we also give avenue to site visitors too have their say on issues and posted articles.
A project we do out love of basketball, it just gets better, feels better, knowing we are reaching some thousands readers per week, yes, people like you. If you want to be a part of it as a user, join the conversation. If you want to be a creative author, contact us directly.

In basketball games, teamwork and great leadership most of the time will prevail over a very tough opponent. No matter how good the opponent may be or how tough the challenges they’ll present you, your team will always come out on top if you learn to trust one another. In most parts in this tragic event that hit us, I guess it’s also safe to say that what we have when all’s all is gone, much like basketball, is one another.
I am very happy to see people in the news, whom despite having some rough times on their own, managed to help their neighbors, especially the old ones who’s struggling for survival. I’m happy to see people interacting, people who’ve sent their own donations whether it may be in the form of cash, food, clothes, medicine or other necessities. My hat is off to everyone who even in the tiniest things have shown sincerity in helping out our fellow Filipinos in this tragic event that just occurred.
With that being said, my heart goes out to all the people who’ve lost their love ones, who lost their houses, who lost everything. I have a friend here who just had his house flooded up to the second floor and my God, I’ve never seen a place so devastated before. While I was helping them fix their house yesterday, I can’t help but think about how lucky we were who wasn’t affected by the storm one single bit. I then made a vow to myself to give out and help, even in the littlest things possible.
And you, if you’re reading this, that means you still have the means to help. I encourage you to help out. Think for one second of how lucky you are and then decide if you want to do help or not. Lots of people are still in need. Lots of organizations are still looking for volunteers and donation. That’s why here I am, encouraging you, that if you aren’t that affected by the Typhoon, to help out.
