Is Phil becoming a young husband soon?
First, I would like to extend my apologies to Phil if you happen interpret this that I’m making a joke out of your name.
I meant no offense really.
No pun intended.
I popped the question the moment Sportsmaryosep got this rare chance to talk to Phil in person in avrecent press conference done by Dole Philippines where Phil was made as one of the ambassadors of its newest campaign titled “This Is My Dole” at the Mandarin Oriental.
You see, Phil was quoted in the newspapers saying that her actress/girlfriend Angel Locsin is “The One.” Not Jet Li. Nor the other one Metallica was singing in the 90s when most you guys were still in your mother’s womb. But the one, which means, the person that he’ll grow up someday. Perhaps get married to.
To cut the chase, our brief conversation went a little something like this.
Sportsmaryosep: Hi Phil. I’m a sportswriter. Can I interview you for a sec?
S: How many products are you endorsing aside from Dole?
P: Samsung, Close up, Clear, Hush Puppies, Gatorade, Adidas and so many others that I couldn’t remember.
S: Let’s talk about the Azkals. What are your plans?
P: We’re playing Hong Kong this June in a friendly and we’re going to attend some camps in the US this August. But the biggest one we’re preparing is the Asian Cup in Maldives.
S: How about the Loyola Meralco Sparks?
P: We’re doing good in the UFL right now and hopefully we’ll get better match after match.
S: Is it okay if ask a question about you and Angel?
S: Let’s cut to the chase, are you two getting married?
P: I’ve said that she’s the one and in my heart and soul I’m sure of it. But as to us getting married, it’s not in the near future. If it comes, we’ll get there.
S: Thank you Phil.
P: You’re welcome. Hey, are you sure you’re not an entertainment writer?
S: I may have soon. But you’re probably referring to James Ty.
So that’s just about it.
At least I’ve given hope to those still dreaming of becoming Phil’s “The One.”
