Hey, they say silver is the new gold

The UP Pep Squad finished second during last Sunday's UAAP Cheerdance Competition, losing yet again to the UST Salingawi Dance Troupe. I actually missed the telecast because of the Pisay 98 basketball game last Sunday, but I was able to watch a video file of their performance earlier today.

(As a basketball buddy of mine once put it, "Pare, kung manonood din lang ako ng sayawan sa Cubao, doon na 'ko sa consumable yung entrance at may floor show pa.")

You know you're talking about the Pep Squad (as opposed to the men's basketball team they're supposed to cheerleaders for) when you're actually disappointed about finishing second, and not ecstatic about finishing fifth. But it wasn't even close. UST finished about three full points ahead of UP in the scoring, and they left little doubt as to the winners of the competition.

It's hard to imagine just three years ago when the UP Pep were on top of the game, and every other squad was playing for second. Maybe we'll get it back next year, especially now that the UP Pep is years away from the pressure of living up to their cheerdance championship days, when they unveiled cutting edge routines year after year. Maybe they'll come up with something as good as that swimming routine, or that tae bo thing. That was way cool, it's always been my favorite.

Or maybe we won't. Win or lose, we're all winners anyway.
