Philippine Sports

I'm really not a sporty guy around here but i love watching sports live on TV. Unfortunately, here in our country, we do not pay more attention to other interesting sports. Basketball is obviously the most famous sports here. I remember when i was in high school, i went to different "try outs" and "dry run", desperately hoping that they can include me in our school's official varsity but everything turned out as failures. LOL. Maybe, sports is not really meant for me so i just satisfied myself by watching them live or watching them on tv.
It is very nice to see that Filipinos are opening their doors now to some new field of sports including football and hockey.
The Philippine National Football Team or much better known as Team Azkals made Football more popular here in our country after winning several international matches. Since then, a lot of Football training school were opened, aiming to teach kids how to play Football properly and effectively. I have heard that the Team is currently undergoing series of practices in preparation for their upcoming match.
Even though we are on a tropical country, it is pretty amazing that we have fellow Filipinos who still excel on extreme sports like Ice Hockey, snow boarding and Ice Skating. Even though we do not have Snow here and we do not have wide space for their training, they are still being recognized in this kind of sports. As a matter of fact, our country was chosen to host the first ever Asia Pacific Hockey Summit. That's why here's our fellow Filipino Hockey players, seriously practicing in preparation for the upcoming event
Being into extreme sports is a great experience indeed but you also have to consider your safety. Safety should always come first. Remember what happened to Natasha Richardson last 2009? She died because of Head injury after she fell during a skiing lesson in Quebec. It was said that actress is not wearing any helmet which probably put her into danger.
Just like what i said, Safety should always comes first so if ever you will put yourself into an extreme sport like this, better wear safety gears to protect you from any harm. It doesn't mean that if you're wearing a knee pad, it is okay not wear a shoulder pad or a helmet while practicing. You should wear them all completely because you do not know where or when the accident will occur.
You also have to consider the brand of your sports gear. The quality is really important here and take note that your life might be at risk if you chose to use a cheap brand. Better use a well trusted sportswear like DaKine for example. DaKine is a well known brand specializing in sportswear. Their backpacks are quite popular too so as the very stylish Dakine Snow Gloves. Their Dakine Beanies are very fashionable too which comes up with different color, styles and design.
