A day before the LA Galaxy-Phil. Azkals match at Rizal, I documented a one hour or so [10:30-11:30 am] on-line chat/forum w/ Landon Donovan [which of course had been promoted on-line a few days before]. The people behind this press exercise were from Group M, Shift, and Gatorade. The response was very, very good and even after the hour had elapsed questions were still streaming in. For me, it was a relatively comfortable shoot. We were all comfortably "working" in the privacy of a 5-star hotel function room [w tasty finger foods, brewed coffee, and of course, lots of Gatorade for everyone].
Before knew it, the hour had passed and Landon had to leave,
but not after obliging a brief interview and some autographs.
Did get Landon to autograph a football jersey I brought along
and asked him to to write
"4 Nace- Landon Donovan - Mabuhay !"
[Nace is my 17 year old nephew who plays for the Junior Kaya Team]
Me - I'm no soccer/football fan [never was] -
I just take great sports photos [soccer included].
- The guys from Group M, Shift, and Gatorade -
Oz, Tim, Ann, Landon, Steve, Rick, Ton, and Leica
and [in front in fuschia] - Rosh
Another on-line chat/forum, this time with Chieffy Caligdong,
is being considered - but nothing is definite at this point.
