Phil is not a Young Husband just yet
Oh it hurts.
Hearing my favorite football player, Phil Younghusband, and my second favorite showbiz personlity next to Juday, Angel Locsin, had just separated after a well-publicized fairy tale relationship that lasted about a couple of years honestly breaks my heart. I’m a sucker for love stories. And this one by Phil and Angel is one of them. For the uninitiated, the Phil-Angel love team is my second favorite tandem next to Vic Sotto and Dina Bonnivie. Remember “Bakit Ba Ganyan” and “Ipagpatawad mo?” Yes, that’s their theme songs. Of course, like their successors, Bossing and Dina separated too.
That hurts too.
Now we Phil broke his long silence on the break up after he posted on his Instagram account about it. Phil, like the gentleman that he is says the decision was mutual and there was really no regrets about it. And here’s what he said: “We enjoyed each other’s company and really made the most of it. There are no faults in this, it was not an issue of who did or didn’t do something, it was a mutual decision and although it was difficult we just both felt that this would be the best thing to do given our circumstances.”
It was good when it lasted. So many kilig moments. There was even a fan page of their love team on Facebook that drew about 30,000 followers. Well, Phil has about 600,000 followers on Twitter while Angel has about 4 million.
But all things must come to an end.
As they say, the love affair started on Twitter and ended on Instagram.
Did I say it hurts?
Sportsmaryosep’s prognosis: We’re no love expert like Dr. Love. If Phil and Angel want advice, I’ll probably refer them to Papa Jack, or maybe Dr. Margie Holmes. I’ll probably throw in Xerex for good measure. But we will try to draw something good about it. Like after Phl decided to sooth his aching heart by drowning himself in football. And boy, he drowned himself. In just a span of 28 minutes, Phil exploded with six goals against a poor, Angel-be-damned Phl Navy in the recent United Football League Cup action at the Emperador Stadium (How Ironic liquor comes into conversation as if its a remedy for broken heart when its not!). Yes, six. A double hat-trick. Not to be pushy, but I hope Phil could sustain this kind of form we our Azkals fly to Maldives next year. I’ll probably remind him myself of his love lost in case he forgots. Like this sports official we use to call “ampaw” for being one, “Para sa Bayan!”
