Graeme Mackinnon, the Aussie-turned-Filipino-turned-Aussie, the Hall of Fame coach who helped kick Cebu football to what it is today (one of this city’s top sports for students), sent me this email. Scan through the photos and, I’m sure, your reaction will be, “Oh, my God……….”

I've been a sports columnist since 1994. First, in The Freeman newspaper under "Tennis Is My Game." Then, starting in 2003, with Sun.Star Cebu under the name "Match Point." Happy reading!


  1. OH, MY GOD!!!!!!!! Viewing the photos got me knotty right down to the pit of my stomach. YIKES!!!! I think some of the photos were super- imposed but I do believe some were real like the golfers’ scene with the approaching bear. That parachuter is definitely “dead on arrival”.

  2. HI Bebot! Hahahaha… “dead on arrival.” I like that. An avid golfer like yourself, I hope you wouldn’t have to go through that experience of having a bear join your threesome!

  3. That’s for sure although having to almost step on a rattle snake that was basking in the sun in a bunker was equally terrifying. I freaked out, screamed at the top of my lungs and almost fainted. Fortunately, the surprised critter frantically slithered away. I’m petrified with snakes. I can’t even touch a ‘harmless’ earthworm.

  4. A rattlesnake? wow, that’s scary! That’s poisonous, I believe. Yup, I guess if you play golf, given all the grass, trees and greens around, snakes (not bears) are most dangerous. Right?
