A cousin once came home breathless from school. He was telling us about this cheer leader who rallied everyone during an assembly. The cousin was telling us how they -first year students - were straining their neck to find out who this brave guy was. They could not him see, covered as he was by the bigger senior students. Then, like some scene from the Bible, the crowd parted and revealed this small guy, his legs spread as if straddling heaven and earth and yelling the old war chants against all other basketball teams who dared to challenge the tribe in Queborac.

His name: King Pasilaban.
