as my friend says through text last night: "Viva Sto. Tomas...finally!!!"
for me, it's always been VIVA STO. TOMAS!!! it's just that the institutional pride is heightened now by the fact that my alma mater bagged that basketball title - which UST last had in 1996
in his thank you speech, coach pido jarencio, paraphrasing him, was right to say that the Season 69 finals was won for the entire UST community - for the students, faculty, priesthood, administration, services, alumni - and that although the most-watched UAAP event ended already, he called to continue to support UST in other UAAP events, in other endeavors...
with this, VIVA STO. TOMAS!!!
