How do you make June Mar Fajardo nervous? Make him do a live interview.
By starting the new season with a cool 23 points and 16 rebounds in yet another San Miguel victory, reigning four-time PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo was once again player of the game.
That means he got to do a live TV interview, which would have been perfect to greet a special someone a happy birthday.
But you see, as great as June Mar is on the court playing basketball, he's not that good on the sidelines giving live TV interviews.
So, he ended up forgetting to greet a certain special somone a happy birthday.
That special someone is is father, Bonifacio, who celebrates his birthday today, December 18.
But don't wory Kraken, we got you.
"Birthday nga ng papa ko bukas, nakalimutan ko pa i-greet sa TV. Paki-greet nalang Papa ko ng “Happy Birthday!” bukas," Fajardo said during his post-game interview with the press Sunday night.
"Kinakabahan talaga ako kapag in-interview ako, hindi pa ko nasanay so ayun, nakalimutan ko. Nire-relax ko nga sarili ko sa interview kaso kinakabahan pa rin ako. Tatawagan ko nalang mamaya," he added.
Aside from making sure his birthday greeting is included in various post-game stories such as this one, Fajardo also wrote a meaningful message for his father on social media.
Happiest birthday sa among Papa.He is the only one who has always believed in me since day 1 of my basketball career.Those times na hapit nako mawad-e sa paglaom sa basketball pero you’re always there beside me para e-cheer up ug e-motivate ko nimu.You gave up your work para lang kuyogan ko nimu sa tryouts nako sa college.Grabe kaayo atong gi-agian nga kalisod pero wala jud ta nisurrender.Siguradohon nako nga worth it imong tanang sacrifices.Thanks for being a great father.We love you! #SDIG
With him being in Manila almost all the time for work, June Mar hasn't spent that much time with his parents who are in the province.
But still, the Kraken makes sure that he makes the time for his loved ones, especially during the holidays.
So everybody, greet a June Mar's father a happy, happy birthday today. Seriously, go on.
