Fil-Ams Representing Philippine Sports Teams

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Filipinos are fond of entering the world of sports. In fact, our country is beginning to predominate in every field in sports. I really salute all of those players representing our country in sports although not all of them are pure Filipino. Some of them are half Filipino and half American but we should be still thankful to them because they chose to represent our country after all.

According to Mr. Joaquin Henson of “The Philippine Star”, there are 11 Fil-Ams reinforcing the Philippine national baseball team now competing in the four-way World Baseball Classic qualifiers in New Taipei City and according to general manager Marty Eizmendi, they’re all committed to play their hearts out for flag and country.

The Team Azkals which represents the Philippines is one of the best and most popular teams in the field of Soccer. Most of the players belong to Team Azkals are actually Filipino-American like the popular Younghusband brothers.

We should be proud of them instead of saying inappropriate words about them. We should not practice being a racist. I really don’t understand why some people tend to think that these Filipino-Foreign people don’t deserve to be part of the Philippines team despite the fact that they are the ones who are making our country, Philippines, to be known all over the world.

I’m encouraging everyone to stop making arguments about this. Instead, let’s all support them in their games regardless if they are pure Filipinos or not as long as they representing our country and doing everything to make us proud.

Well, I know that some Fil-Ams still bring their “Americanisms” to the Philippines in terms of pride, aloofness and cultural thinking; thus they become role-models of the sacred games for all Filipino people especially to those aspiring children.

They may not be a pure Filipino in blood; I know that they are Filipinos in mind and heart.
