SEALED with a kiss.
San Mig superstar James Yap celebrated the latest championship conquest of his career with a kiss on the cheek of his Italian girlfriend in the din of the celebration on Friday night.
Mick Cazzola was part of the crowd of more than 21,000 fans at the Big Dome on Friday night that were mostly at the edge of their seats as Game Seven went down to a thrilling finish.
Yap's Italian lady love, however, told Spin.ph she had no doubt in her mind that the Mixers and her hero would beat out Petron in the deciding game of a series that was simply too close to call.
"I knew they were gonna make it. They really wanted it," she said, her voice drowned out by the cheers of San Mig fans inside the historic stadium.

Although Yap scored eight points, grabbed four rebouds and dished out one assist in 30 minutes of play, Cazzola said she never for one moment lost faith in her beau.
"Absolutely, I was so proud of James I never doubted that he can do it," she said. "I am praying when they were down and I cheer when they get back the lead."
At the final buzzer, Yap sprinted down to where Cazzola was at ringside as the couple celebrated with a buzz while enamored San Mig fans cheered around them.
Definitely a timeless moment for the couple.
