UAAP Finals: Are You Team Basha (UST) or Team Bobbie (ADMU)?
It's been four days since Game One of the best-of-3 UAAP Finals series between the Ateneo Blue Eagles and The UST Growling Tigers. The Thirdy Ravena-led Blue Eagles and defending champions dominated the Tigers, who advanced to the finals after defeating the UP Fighting Maroons twice.
For some weird and hilarious reason, this year's UAAP Season 82 Finals matchup was compared to a grand face-off of Kapamilya actress Bea Alonzo's iconic movie characters.
Kaninong team ka: Team Bobbie Salazar from the movie Four Sisters and a Wedding, the Atenean who became a Corporate Communications Manager in New York, or Team Basha Eugenio of One More Chance, the architect who was also a proud member of the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe?
Anong team ka? 🔥— iWant (@iwant) November 15, 2019

This viral meme stated both of the characters' "Tale Of The Tape," highlighting each others' strengths and weaknesses! And if you've watched and become a fan of the mentioned movies, you'll just LOL at the references!
"Basha" Belinda Eugenio vs. Roberta "Bobbie" Salazar— Alt Bobong Marcos (@alt_BBM) November 13, 2019
Strength: matigas (parang bato)
Weaknesses: Chicken skin, taba ng talangka
Strength: kahit anong gawin, ang galing galing pa rin.
Weaknesses: Chewing gum, si mama#GoUSTe#OBF#UAAPFinals pic.twitter.com/qyAslf22s3
Much like Ateneo, Bobbie's strength reads, "Kahit ano'ng gawin, ang galing-galing pa rin," while Basha's depicts what UST has proven to be after winning three consecutive do-or-die matches against the FEU Tamaraws and UP Fighting Maroons to reach the Finals:"Matigas (parang bato)."
Honestly, we would love to hear the reaction of Bea Alonzo herself regarding this as soon as possible! Bakit parang kasalanan niya na sila ang nasa Finals this year?
In the meantime, watch Ms. Charo Santos-Concio reenact Bobbie's famous lines with Bea in this MYXclusive interview!
