I can’t deny I am a sports fan, a basketball fan to be exact. That’s why everytime I get the chance to go home I make it a point to watch a live game of my favorite team. They won the championship recently and I followed the series through live streaming or the replays.
My “love” for the players went as far as following them in their social media accounts like Twitter and Instagram which led me to following some of the basketball personalities like the commentators and analysts. I could still remember when I was still young and watching a game with my big bro. He used to listen to what the analysts would say during a match. Maybe that’s why my fondness of the sports went beyond the players and the game itself.
When I followed Mico Halili, one of the analysts, in his Twitter account I found out he has a weekly show called The Bro Show. He’s with another analyst and former professional basketball player, Jason Webb, and also a former professional basketball player and one of the assistant coaches of my favorite team Richard Del Rosario. The Bro Show topics generally evolves around sports (although there can be others outside sports and their crazy ideas) and targets sports aficionados and enthusiasts.
When I first watched the replay of their first episode, I immediately fell in love with it. I love the humor in the show. I love the hosts’ spontaneity. It’s like watching a bunch of men just hanging out and having fun. I like the company of men especially those who really have a great sense of humor. I used to be “one of the boys” and hang out with my male colleagues when I was still working and there was never a dull moment with them. Whenever I watch this show, there really are times that I had to laugh out loud. But don’t get me wrong, this show is also full of wit (what with that crazy idea on how Philippines could make it to the Olympics. Hahaha! After watching the first episode, I went on to the next, and to the next… I just couldn’t help but go on and watch them. I couldn’t get enough of their humor really.
Here’s their pilot episode…
There are only two shows I watch regulary from our local channels in the Philippines and I’m glad that there’s another one for me to look forward to. This is a great companion especially that I’m alone at home and just waiting for the time to pass by until my kids arrive from school.
