Update Feb. 5, 2012: Congratulations to the Lasalle PBA Green Dream Team for winning 117 over Ateneo PBA Blue Team 104 🙂 Animo La Salle!
RIVALRY (Ateneo-La Salle The Musical) is a brilliant portrayal of the competitive spirit between archrivals La Salle and Ateneo in an all-original, all-Filipino musical.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the lyrics and the witty and romantic songs throughout the two-hour production. It’s like Ateneo-La Salle jokes rolled into one entertaining show.
It’s the story of the love triangle of a Maryknoller with a Lasallian and an Atenean set in 1968, during the NCAA days of the Ateneo-La Salle Basketball Rivalry.
La Salle leads in head-to-head basketball games against Ateneo, with 35 wins vs. 32 of Ateneo. (Ok, if you consider the seven forfeited games in the official UAAP Records from 2003 to 2005, Ateneo would lead with 39 vs 28.)
I must disclose that I’m a biased Green Archer fanatic. I’ve been blogging about the basketball rivalry until La Salle’s last championship in 2007 — (see: OAP | Never Shall We Fail)
