    ‘Big Boy’ gone

    By Beth Celis
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    12:26 am | Thursday, November 24th, 2011


    Sad news from Ruffy Ignacio, secretary general of the PBA Legends Foundation USA:

    “We received a call from Francis Arnaiz in Sacramento, California, informing us of the death of PBA legend Alberto ‘Big Boy’ Reynoso Nov. 22 Manila time at his residence in Sacramento.”

    According to Ruffy, Big Boy has been “in and out of various illnesses” for several months now.

    “He became critically ill three years ago, but he recovered. Then he got sick again. It was downhill all the way after that,” Ruffy said.

    In 2008, during the first Legends reunion in the US, former Toyota teammates Sonny Jaworski and Francis Arnaiz and other legends had the opportunity to visit Big Boy in a hospital.

    I last spoke to him some months after that when Arab friends from Bahrain (where he previously worked) called him up to find out if he was well. By that time, Big Boy had recovered from his ailment and was back on his feet.

    Big Boy’s younger brother Cristino had died of a stroke around the same time he was hospitalized in 2008, if I remember correctly.

    As for fellow legend Abet Guidaben, who was afflicted with myasthenia gravis, Ruffy reports that he has returned to good health after the surgical removal of his thymus gland.

    “Abet’s wife Maridol has also fully recovered. They continue to look after each other’s health though. Abet is back actively playing.”

    Is this the same inter government agency that has PNP, Pag-ibig, Philhealth playing where Ponce and Hatague are playing for Pag-ibig)?

    Julius Babao revisits complaint against PBA player on 'XXX' by ABS-CBN Corp. Comm. | November 28, 2011 8:47 AM | Share this article

    Saan na nga ba humantong ang reklamong dating natanggap ng “XXX” sa PBA player na si Dennis Espino?

    Babalikan at kukumustahin ni Julius Babao ang kaso ngayong Lunes (Nov 28). Una ng naiulat sa programa ang diumano’y pagditene ni Dennis sa dating sekretartya sa piggery farm nito hangga’t hindi niya nababayaran ang utang na P5,000 at naibabalik ang files sa kanyang negosyo.

    not sure if this was posted. Caloy Loyzaga had a stroke last june, and he is recovering and undergoing therapy. Please pray for him. My dad grew up and played with him in Santa Mesa

    Anyone who wants to replace a coach because his dwarf team keeps losing against bigger teams is wishing for a miracle and should get a magician. A more practical solution is to get reinforcements unless one is content to wait a few more years in the hope that the dwarf players will grow wings and fly over their defenders. PBA reinforcements will not guarantee a championship, but it will guarantee close losses which is enough to make me happy.

    All of these guys can revive their career in the ABL. Or in the D-League if they are not over the age limit.
    Many of the players in this list did not last long in the PBA. Some did not even make it. Those who are still in the big league are Jaime, Rodriguez and Alonzo.

    ^ It's good that Magpayo found a career outside of basketball. Perhaps he's one of the top players who never made it to the PBA. He was part of the 2000 NCAA championship team of St. Benilde along with Sunday Salvacion, Jondan Salvador, Ronald Capati and Mark Magsumbol who all made it to the big league.

    Default Woolpert

    Now for former PBA coaches. Remember Paul Woolpert? The American coach who replaced countryman Bill Bayno as Talk N Text mentor some years back? He is now coaching in the Australian National Basketball League. And he's currently in hot water.

    Woolpert_Paul.jpg
    The National Basketball League has announced that Townsville Crocodiles Head Coach Paul Woolpert (agency: SportsTalent ) has elected to have the charges against him heard by telephone by the NBL Tribunal.

    Woolpert was charged with Abusive Language and Unsportsmanlike Conduct following the Townsville Crocodiles versus Wollongong Hawks match on Saturday night at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong.

    The Townsville Crocodiles club advised the NBL head office this morning that Woolpert had elected to have the matter heard via a telephone hook-up, rather than opting for a formal Tribunal hearing.

    NBL Tribunal Chairman Scott Derwin will now conduct individual phone interviews with all parties to the charges on Tuesday afternoon. The outcome will be advised as soon as the Tribunals ruling has been handed down.

    As per standard NBL rules, all parties are forbidden from publicly discussing the charges now that the matter has been referred to the Tribunal.
