If the pep squads of UST, FEU, and UP have their own appreciation threads here, then we can have a thread dedicated to Ateneo de Manila University's own cheering squad: the Blue Babble Battalion!

    Mas maganda siguro if buong blue babble battalion meaning from grade school, high school and college blue babble ang magperform sa ateneo-la sale game on sunday! tapos all boys lang - kasi all boys naman talaga ang original blue babble battalion.

    Suggestion lang po! :-)

    The halftime performances are meh.

    But when the boys are dispersed across the aisles, their quips and taunts are hilarious.

    thats because The Ateneo BBB was created as a Cheer LEADING Squad and not a Cheer DANCING squad like the others schools "PEP" Squads. we dont care about dumb halftime performances and pathetic pyramid building stunts, we only care about making sure the entire crowd cheers throughout the game and help pull the team to victory. and those "quips" and "taunts" are all part of what it truly means to be a part of the BBB and the Ateneo 6th Man. the best cheering gallery in this country bar none.

    Blue, green give way to Cory yellow
    MANILA, Philippines – At least for once, it’s not going to be a choice between blue or green. Yellow, the famous Cory Yellow, will be the color of the day when Ateneo and La Salle clash in the UAAP seniors basketball tournament at the Araneta Coliseum on Sunday.

    Fans of varsity hoops’ bitter rivals will be wearing yellow instead as tribute to the late President Cory Aquino.

    “A suggestion was made, text messages were passed on and it just had a life of its own,” said Bro. Bernie Oca, La Salle’s representative to the league board, yesterday told The STAR.

    This marks the first time in the 72-year history of the league that UAAP fans would be wearing the same color of shirts regardless of what school they would root for.

    “Yes, we will have to buy a yellow shirt to wear on Sunday,” Ateneo athletic director Ricky Palou said.

    Text messages urging students of both schools to wear yellow on Sunday spread like wildfire yesterday as the very woman who turned the color into a symbol of protest and unity when she led a popular, peaceful revolt in 1986, was laid to rest after an eight-hour funeral procession at the Manila Memorial Park in Sucat last night.

    “Just to show how all of us, not just La Sallians and Ateneans, but all Filipinos are moved and inspired to show our love for President Cory Aquino,” said Oca.

    Chuck Buenaventura, La Salle’s other league board member, said he might also wear yellow.

    Even in death, the former President can still weave her Cory magic in spreading peace and unity. – Joey Villar

    I don't mind if BBB will just do a cheering or a mixed of dance as long as they it well and with gusto!

    Hope you will finally barge into the top three in the CDC this year!

    ONE BIG FIGHT!!!

    I agree with that—I love what they do to get the crowd cheering. It's just that, in the two games I attended this year so far, the halftime routines seemed identical.

    During that game against UP, as a matter of fact, in the dying seconds, the BBB were still valiantly trying to get our hopes up. Resulted in some playful banter with the fans. :D

    I was also there during the ADMU-UP game. I really like how BBB didnt lose hope during the last seconds and they continued cheering.

    I too prefer cheer LEADING than to cheer DANCING. Actually, I think most Ateneans prefer that (tradition and everything). But I wouldn't mind them breaking tradition once in a while if it means breaking into the freaking top 3.

    Got your point...just a reaction though...halftime performances are not dumb and pyramid building stunts are not pathetic because technically, the BBB also do halftime performances. Although theirs is more of the traditional one, pyramids and other related stuff are also done sometimes at the back while the cheers are being yelled...*peace*
  • dylanschueydylanschuey Member PExer
    It is ok for me if the Ateneo never wins the cheerdancing competition as long as Ateneo always wins the UAAP Men's basketball crown.;)

    Minor correction lang RuckuS. The BBB is the entire Ateneo cheering community.*okay*

    i am happy that, so far this season, i have not seen any "that's entertainment" numbers from the babble.

    keep it up folks.
  • sana kung gaano kalaki ang drive ng mga atenista na manood na basketball games, maging ganoon rin sila ka supportive ng BBB. this team is a big contender this year. when this team performs, i cheer! :)

    Go Ateneo!

    hehe

    well they do that now, but being a member of the LAST BATCH of ALL MALE BBB.. do understand that we didnt really prepare that much for halftime performances. usually we only had a short meeting (around 10-15mins) before the start of the game and discuss what formations we were gonna do during the halftime break. meaning we never did care about the halftime "show". we had a job and thats to make the entire crowd cheer all game long and with that we were the best. i remember during the 90's there was a time that the UST gallery would laugh at our halftime show routine(sometimes they even boo'ed) because it didnt have any flare as compared to the SDT. but we cheered with passion because in our minds we KNEW that only our school -- ATENEO had a cheering TRADITION, as supposed to their simple cheerdancing antics. which im my mind that time was just a notch higher than circus stunts.

    well, times have changed a LOT since then, Ateneo has GIRL Cheerleaders now .. and other schools, ex. UST has developed a somewhat cheerleading tradition of their own(YJ) ..

    hehe

    Sana nga. They really need supporters during the competition itself, because even that can make a huge difference. Pa-"elite" kasi ibang Ateneans, ayaw maging fan. Hindi tuloy naa-appreciate ginagawa nila. :bop: They improved a lot pa naman.

    I'm really rooting for them. Hope they will finally break the top 3. *okay*

    One big fight!

    I really admire the BBB in its halftime. Kita mo talaga na they were able to lead the crowd, also its a plus na its female cheerleaders are damn hot, sexy and graceful. They are known for their tradational way of cheerleading and I think they should stick to it--its effective and with class. I think never will this group stoop down to the level that it will merely use and dance to the tune of Jai Ho :lol: or the kind. Hindi bagay at nakakaasiwa iyon kapag ganun.

    During the UP-ADMU Battle of Katipunan game, nice to see how they lead the crowd until the end.

    hindi naman "pa-elite," talagang di lang trip ng ibang tao ang cheerdancing. to each his own.
