SAN Mig Coffee is coming up with a unique way to determine who is going to be the muse of the team for the opening ceremonies of the PBA’s 40th season on October 19 at the Philippine Arena.
Team governor Rene Pardo has asked Spin.ph to spread the news that the fans of the Mixers can weigh in and suggest who they think deserves to be the face of the franchise on opening day.
Pardo said fans can make their suggestions on his Facebook account.
“Pakisabi sa mga fans na pag may suggestions sila, ilagay lang nila `yung names ng mga gusto nilang maging muse namin tapos ipapasa ko yun sa marketing (department) namin,” said the amiable team official.
Previously, it’s the team’s big bosses who choose who the Mixers’ muse or set of muses are going to be during the opening ceremonies, according to Pardo.
But as a way of thanking fans for their unwavering support during a run that saw the Mixers win the league’s last four conferences - including a rare grand slam last season, Pardo said management deemed it best for their supporters to have a say on the team’s choice of muse.
“Naisip lang kasi namin na bakit hindi bigyan ng voice ang fans to choose. Kasi gusto namin i-involve ang fans,” he said.
Pardo however, reminded fans that the team always makes it a point to pick a muse with a wholesome image.
“Wala naman talaga kaming qualification. Pero normally, mga wholesome ang image nung mga nakukuha naming muse,” he said, mentioning the likes of megastar Sharon Cuneta, gymnast Bea Lucero, former Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Zorah Andam, Antoinette Taus, Rhian Ramos, among others, as those who had previously served as muses of the multi-titled franchise.
Meanwhile, sexy and sultry Ellen Adarna is set to stand as muse of league crowd darling Barangay Ginebra, while Rain or Shine is set to parade Cordillera pride Glennifer Perido, who emerged as Miss Rain or Shine in the last Mutya ng Pilipinas beauty pageant.
Newcomer Blackwater Elite on the other hand, is tapping teenybopper Julie Ann San Jose and sexy actress Sunshine Cruz, both of whom are known endorsers of the Ever Bilena Cosmetics products of team owner Dioceldo Sy.
