first_imgOn Christmas Day, two basketball dreams take on different paths for two Warriors—whose roads nearly converged far away from home.Paul Zamar had seen his dream get knocked down, just as he thought life could not get any better. In 2016, he was playing D-League MVP levels for Cafe France. He married longtime girlfriend Jane Arcangel. The only thing missing was a ringing phone that, on the other end, would be a PBA team needing a backup playmaker.ADVERTISEMENT The call never came.Worse, Cafe France opted to go on a different direction and Zamar eventually wound up in Thailand. Though not perceptible if measured in kilometers, the only thing farther from home was his PBA dreams.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkStill, suiting up for Mono Vampire for the Asean Basketball League gives Zamar a shot at chasing his PBA dream.“I’m thankful to the ABL because they give us players a chance,” he said. “The PBA is still crowded for us guards. As players, we want to improve, continue playing, and still be visible to the public. The chance is being given here for us and we’re just taking this opportunity.” Niño Canaleta, like Zamar a product of University of the East’s basketball program, nearly ended up a teammate of his schoolmate in Thailand.Having turned 35 and his contract with Blackwater already maxing out its shelf life, Canaleta wanted one more shot at leaving the game on his own terms.“He had a ready offer to play in Thailand,” said agent Danny Espiritu. “But he waited for a chance to still play in the PBA. He was confident he could still get one.”Meralco gave Canaleta that chance. And on Day One, he repaid that confidence.Canaleta went 5-of-8 from threes as Meralco held off Blackwater, 101-95, to win its season opener for the first time in three years. He finished with 25 points, eight rebounds and two assists in the win.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He is currently averaging 15.57 points, 3.43 rebounds, and 3.43 assists in seven games in the 2018 ABL season.But the hardest test is outside the court.“Home is where the heart is,” he said. “My family, my wife is in the Philippines. It’s hard here abroad where I’m always alone. Sometimes, you’ll wake up and you’re all by your lonesome. It’s really difficult. That’s why if there’s a chance for me to make it to the PBA, I will really grab it.”Two Christmases, two dreams. One Warrior pushing to extend his, the other pining for his to come true.If there’s a lesson somewhere in there, Zamar’s father Boycie, a former national coach and current assistant with San Miguel Beer in the PBA, knows what it is.“Life is unfair, and that’s always the case,” the older Zamar said. “You have a choice to do good things or bad things. Either way, people will say something at you, so it’s better that you just do good.”center_img PBA rookies make time for Christmas despite busy schedule Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina LATEST STORIES Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals MOST READ OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View commentslast_img read more

first_imgWorld Record to be Attempted at the 2009 Fort St. John International Air ShowThe Fort St. John International Air Show Society in partnership with the City of Fort St. John will be hosting the Fort St. John International Air Show this summer on Sunday, July 19, 2009.  – Advertisement -The Committee is excited to announce a set of new performers to this year’s already full line-up of performers, Jurassic Attack and Maniac.  These monster trucks are huge 4×4’s that destroy everything in their way. The machines weigh about 10,000 pounds, are 12 feet high, 12 feet wide and have motors that close in on 2,000 horse power.  Maniac is coming to the 2009 Fort St. John International Air Show to attempt a new World Record, for the world’s longest wheelie.  “This is an exciting new set of performers for the Air Show this year” Said Darlene Hamre, Show Producer, “Not only are two monster trucks coming to perform, but they will attempt a World Record which is very exciting, especially if they accomplish what they came here to do.”Jurassic Attack and Maniac are no strangers to Air Shows.  During their previous tours of Canada and the U.S., they have stopped at many air shows including the Lethbridge International Air Show where they say the pilots had just as much fun in the monster truck cockpits as they did in the planes. Tickets are on sale at Petron Communications, Quality Inn Northern Grand, Fort St. John’s Visitor Centre and online at www.fsjairshow.com.  You can also see the show for free if you volunteer to help with the show.  To apply as a volunteer, please visit www.fsjairshow.com to sign up online or call (250) 787-7100.  Free shuttle busses will help move people from the North Peace Arena to the Airport starting at 11am on Sunday July 19th.  Parking will cost $15 at the airport with proceeds going to North Peace Search and Rescue.Advertisement With 2009 marking the 100th Anniversary of Powered Flight in Canada, we are expecting the F-86 Sabre “Hawk One” which has been restored and painted to mark this great achievement plus great acts like the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, the Skyhawks and much more!  The last Air Show in Fort St. John was held in July of 2007 and over 8,000 people attended the evening show and thousands of dollars was donated to local charities and non-profit societies in the North Peace.  Keep track of the 2009 Fort St. John Air Show by visiting fsjairshow.comlast_img read more
