Mark Caguioa has said it time and time again when he's asked about his expiring contract with Ginebra, that he would rather retire as a Ginebra player than to be traded to other PBA teams. That made me happy because I'm an avid Ginebra fan. But then again I told to myself that if the Ginebra management will not renew his contract, his strong desire to retire as a Gin King would not happen. But I kept believing that they will renew it and so I patiently counted the days. I waited if Ginebra will renew Mark Caguioa's contract. I was doing that up to now, and suddenly, my Idol, Snow Badua Tweeted that:
GINEBRA practice SEPTEMBER 5 at the XAVIER GYM! All expired contracts of players, except for EROD, have been renewed! - snowbadua via twitter.
I knew it. Sooner or later they will renew his contract. I was so happy. He deserves to have a new contract with the most famous team in the PBA, Ginebra. He deserves it because he just finished the PBA Season 36 with flying colors (being part of the PBA's Mythical Team selection) and he's back to his usual basketball form (The Spark that the people have come to love). And also, I believe that Ginebra will never be the same without him on the floor. His name is synonymous to Ginebra. When you say Mark Caguioa, Ginebra will be the first thing that will come into a person's mind. The never say die attitude, the tear drop shots and the Mohawk are all in Mark Caguioa. Nice decision Ginebra.
