Batangas is definitely going through rough times right now following the eruption of Taal Volcano.
Barangay Ginebra star LA Tenorio, himself a Batangueño, is fully aware of the situation in his home province. Thankfully, his family in Nasugbu is doing fine.
“Lahat ng family ko at relatives ko, sa Nasugbu. They’re okay,” he said. “Some of my cousins are doing voluntary work also, and ‘yung school dun naging one of the evacuation centers sa Batangas.
“I keep in touch with the family. My parents are here since nangyari. They’re okay, but my ninety-seven-year-old grandfather is there, but he’s okay.”
Still, Tenorio feels for those who have been greatly affected by the calamity, which started last Sunday.
“Rest assured na ‘yung dasal namin dito sa Manila, laging nandyan para sa inyo,” said the 34-year-old.
So in his and Ginebra’s own little way, they made it a point to dedicate Game Four of their 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals clash versus Meralco on Wednesday to their ka-Barangays in Batangas.
And the result will surely bring joy to their fans. The Gin Kings walloped the Bolts by 22 points, 94-72, to take a commanding 3-1 advantage in their best-of-seven series.
They have more to offer for the Ginebra faithful in Batangas than the win, though. Tenorio said that they will also dedicate Game Five on Friday where they look to win the championship.
“I told the players na we dedicate this win and hopefully, the championship on Friday for our kababayans in Batangas. Walang ikakasaya ang mga fans natin sa Batangas kundi ‘yung championship,” he said.
“We’re really dedicating this championship for our kababayan, especially sa mga kababayan ko sa Batangas,” the product of Ateneo continued.
“Hopefully makuha namin sa Friday to make them smile.”
