Blue beats Green, and the rivalry in betwen.

The Blue Eagles won the series 2-0 in a jampacked crowd at the Araneta Coliseum. Ours is a country of basketball fanatics, and every time UAAP season starts, only basketball games is highlighted (although history tells that the overall UAAP championships are always awarded to either UP, or UST), especially if it is La Salle and Ateneo on championships.

The rivalry is not confined to the venue itself. It is more than that. It is more of who is the better school.

But going back to the UAAP Finals, there has been reports of overpriced tickets being auctioned online. Blame scalpers, so they say. The Inquirer’s editorial makes a good analysis.

  1. “On Monday, even before the box office opened, Araneta Center guards told people who had lined up as early as the night before that unless they had Ateneo or La Salle IDs, they won’t get any tickets for the second game of the championship series.”

    THIS IS NOT TRUE. We called Ticketnet the night before and they told us that we only need to present a valid I.D., not necessarily an Ateneo I.D. People who were in line Monday morning were told of the new policy only when they reached the guards which were stationed a few feet away from the ticket office.

    My assistant, who had a Miriam College I.D. at that time, was turned away. I was told that they even refused to sell to students with U.P. IDs. (UP is the UAAP host this year.)
