Fajardo gets inspiration from Fernandez sitting courtside

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netPlaying for San Miguel is already enough motivation for four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo to play his guts out.But in the presence of the league’s original dominant big man, Fajardo wanted to make sure he would leave an indelible impression on the legendary Ramon Fernandez.ADVERTISEMENT UAAP baseball: Adamson turns back La Salle to end 8-year title drought Fajardo scored 10 of his total 14 points in the Beermen’s 25-10 run to closeout the first period which blew the game wide open the defending champions.The Kraken added that Fernandez, who also has four MVPs in his name, wanted to see a hook shot but with Fajardo’s teammates catching fire he didn’t have the chance to show off his smooth post moves.It’s fitting only fitting since the hook is the same maneuver that earned Fernandez 18,996 points in his career, the most in PBA history.“He told me that I should take a hook shot but I wasn’t able to attempt it,” said Fajardo, who had ample help as five of his teammates scored at least 10. “He’s always telling me to use it because it’s very hard to stop.”Marcio Lassiter led San Miguel with 23 points while Alex Cabagnot and Arwind Santos had 19 and 16 points, respectively.ADVERTISEMENT Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K. Brown among SAG Awards presenters Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerism Matt Ganuelas-Rosser and Chris Ross also finished in double figures for the Beermen with 12 and 11 points, respectively.Fajardo, however, promised Fernandez that he would take the classic hook shot in the near future.“I want to take a hook shot, soon I’ll go for it,” said Fajardo.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery And Fajardo did just that when the Kraken spearheaded San Miguels’ early-game rally against Barangay Ginebra in Game 4 of their semifinals series in the PBA Philippine Cup.Fajardo said the mere presence of Fernandez, who sat courtside at Mall of Asia Arena, served as an inspiration for him to help lead the Beermen in their 102-81 rout of the Gin Kings.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkRamon Fernandez at courtside.

Oregon bill would let teens register to vote at 16

first_imgSALEM, Ore. — The Oregon House on Tuesday approved a measure backed by Democrats that would allow teenagers to register to vote when they turn 16 and get their driver’s license.The teens wouldn’t be able to cast a ballot until their 18th birthday, but proponents hope the measure would increase participation among younger voters. As registered voters, they’d automatically get a ballot in the mail before the first election in which they’re eligible to vote.“This bill would greatly enhance our ability to engage the young people who we so desperately need in our democracy,” said Rep. Ben Unger, of Hillsboro, a freshman Democrat and political consultant who was one the measure’s chief sponsors.Lawmakers rejected a Republican counter-proposal that would have prohibited minors from joining political parties. It also would have kept their contact information private from campaigns, political parties and others that collect data from voter rolls.Political parties would begin reaching out to 15-year-olds trying to persuade them to join on their 16th birthday when they get their driver’s license and register to vote, said Rep. Wally Hicks, R-Grants Pass.last_img read more
