London launches
greatest sporting show

An expectant London prepared yesterday to launch the greatest sporting show on earth with excitement reaching fever pitch hours ahead of the Olympic Games opening ceremony (4 a.m. Phil. time).

After seven years of intensive planning, the Games will officially begin in a once rundown area of east London where 80,000 spectators will watch a spectacular show devised by "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle.

Queen Elizabeth II will declare the Games officially open in the Olympic Stadium after a ceremony which Boyle has promised will showcase Britain's history as well as the nation's quirky sense of humor.

Watchmen beats Akasya,
faces Toyota in semifinals

Steals, fastbreak attacks and outside shootings were the key factors when the Watchmen Daily Journal outplayed Akaysa Grill Thursday evening, 118-100, in the last scheduled quarterfinal match in the 1st PROBAC/LNA7 Basketball Invitational Tournament played at the West Negros University gym.

With the win, Watchmen earned the right to challenge No. 1 team Toyota-Bacolod in the semifinals on Monday.

Pril Gacho and Ceasar Tan started hot in the opening quarter, nailing 14 and 12 points apiece to lead Watchmen to an explosive 35-23 blast despite the ceiling from 6-footer Hans Schulze, who combined for 15 points with Justin Tugado to spearhead Akasya.
