San Miguel's Chris Ross laughs off Meralco Bolt poster gaffe
MANILA, Philippines – The San Miguel Beermen and Meralco Bolts are in Legazpi City for their out-of-town game on Saturday, March 5. The Bolts are currently undefeated, while the Beermen have won 3 of the last 4 PBA titles, which means that this match is important.
It's also expected that the area where the game will take place would have promotional products for the upcoming contest. That was the case in Legazpi, although there was some confusion.
A poster promoting both teams featured June Mar Fajardo, Arwind Santos, and Ronald Tubid from San Miguel, and Gary David, Jimmy Alapag, and Chris Ross for Meralco.
The problem there is, Ross actually plays for San Miguel. In fact, he was the team's Finals MVP last conference.
Ross took a photo of the poster and found it funny enough to share online.
Ummmmmmmm. Did something happen and I haven't been informed?!?!? pic.twitter.com/bh25X1wLCi— Chris Ross (@cmross6) March 4, 2016
It's easy to understand why there would be a confusion. Ross did play for Meralco from 2010-2013. He's been with San Miguel since, and has blossomed as a top-flight point guard in the league. – Rappler.com
