Blue Eagle 40 is an idea I had percolating in my head for a few years now. No, it is not an offshoot of the late Halikinu Radio. I pitched it last year to Ateneo but we didn't get anywhere. But like He always says, in His time. And this year, we finally got rolling.
Why Blue Eagle 40? Well, technically, there are 40 minutes in a basketball game and that's enough time to dissect a game or chat with some guests. If we extend, then it's like a hoops match -- there's overtime. It won't be simply basketball, we're going to tackle all the college sports or pro sports that involve Ateneans.
For the first episode, Bo Perasol has the distinction of being the first ever guest and we talk about his coming in to Ateneo, the Filoil pullout, the trips in the US and Japan, and if he likes his job at all. For the second ep, we have volleybelles Fille Cainglet and Alyssa Valdez. The third ep, the UAAP preview, you'll hear me talk about my pre-season rankings with guests Juami Tiongson and Frank Golla.
Blue Eagle 40 premiers on June 17. The second ep will air later in the week because the following Monday is the UAAP preview. After that, we go live the day after every weekend. For now it's on ateneo.edu. But we plan on putting it on YouTube, Vimeo, and iTunes. And when we can work the kinks out, there will be live streaming.
Here's the teaser! Thanks and we hope you enjoy it. OBF!!!!!!
