Training grounds

The Moro Lorenzo Sports Center (MLSC) of the Ateneo de Manila University was constructed in 2001, and has multi-purpose courts which can be used for basketball, volleyball and badminton. It has an indoor track oval, a gym and a sports medicine clinic, aside from a chapel and a café. It is named after Luis F. "Moro" Lorenzo, Sr., an alumnus of the university, a former basketball player, and, before his death in 1997, a very successful businessman. The MLSC is where the Ateneo Blue Eagles, the university's men's basketball team, practices everyday. This afternoon is the third and final game of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) men's basketball championship between the Ateneo Blue Eagles and the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors. Last year, we won against the De La Salle Green Archers. I'm keeping all my fingers and toes crossed today! Go Blue Eagles! One big fight!!

Love the angle you have chosen to take this picture

I like the low angle. I did a lot of photos this summer by putting the camera or holding it between my ankles.

The bird's beak has a blue edge near where it joins the face. The beak itself is black. They have beautiful powder blue skin that covers their eyes when they blink.

What a nice facility! The indoor track caught my attention. We have one here too and it's great for walking on days when the heat is unbearable outside.

Oh how I miss the afternoons that I would go to the corridor between Moro and the High School Field. I MISS ATENEO. GO ATENEO. By the way, I'm loving your site.
