Brilliant, brilliant story about a faraway fan & his beloved baseball team from @NYTSports mobile.nytimes.com/2014/08/13/spo… pic.twitter.com/H6QtRk0RNl
Because DLSU won over Ateneo, @charlestiu and I had to wear La Salle shirts on FTW. Felt okay to wear green naman. Para lang akong binunutan ng ngipin na walang anesthesia. 😩😩😩 Thanks for the shirt @renster414 @suzy899 💔
Will have to wear this for FTW taping 😢 Para akong bubunutan ng ngipin! Huhuhupic.twitter.com/eyYxhLLlWpp

Again, we have no control over @jaireyes5. Wala talaga:) FTW: Clutch UAAP Players. WATCH FTW youtube.com/watch?v=hFoizX… pic.twitter.com/vQMgV5naD0
And that's why we love Charles Barkley. He has expertise + genuine connection w/ audience. You will watch him even if you disagree w/ him.
I can tell you this w/ confidence. Making that genuine connection w/ viewers through honesty & humor is harder than explaining x's and o's.
S/O to @awfulannouncing @myoder84 for that insightful podcast with Tom Verducci. You learn so much by listening to how the great ones work.
Thus, if a former player/coach can inform, share insight, AND entertain, that's the magic combo for analysts today. It's about connection.
But Verducci, also an award-winning writer for Sports Illustrated, proves if you can connect w/ audience, no need to be ex-player/coach.
Been asked many times if a TV analyst must be a former player/coach. I say it's not a must but it's a very huge plus in today's context.
Verducci covers MLB even if he's not a former baseball player. He says ability to inform AND entertain more vital than playing experience.
Award-winning sports writer/broadcaster Tom Verducci says a commentator's ability to entertain sometimes more vital than credentials.

Main takeaway from all that confusion: tough-as-nails Freddie Abuda looks good in green pants.
