PBA: Beermen get Grand Slam orders from SMC bosses
Establishing an undeniable All-Filipino dynasty and once again making their case as the greatest team in PBA history, the marching orders for the Beermen are simple now: go after the franchise's second Grand Slam.

San Miguel's winning tradition endures.

Following a 4-1 Finals conquest of Magnolia last week, the Beermen celebrated an unprecedented fourth straight Philippine Cup title Tuesday at the San Miguel headquarters in Ortigas.

Establishing an undeniable All-Filipino dynasty and once again making their case as the greatest team in PBA history, the marching orders for the Beermen are simple now: go after the franchise's second Grand Slam.

And after last year's failed attempt at a triple crown, San Miguel seems more determined to get the job done this year.

However, even if the Beermen are chasing for more glory, the company's big boss would like to remind his flagship team to be grounded all the time.

"Yun naman po ay pinagdadasal," SMC President Ramon S. Ang said in his speech, referring to the Grand Slam.

"Sa awa ng Diyos, baka sakaling manalo tayo," he added.

Still, while RSA is taking the humble approach, it always pays to be confident in your abilities.

"What's next? Patikim pa lang ito. Sabi nga nila, one down, two to go." President of San Miguel Brewery, Inc., Bobby Huang said in his speech.

With yet another dominant showing in the All-Filipino, the Beermen are certainly in position to go all the way this season.

And their chances appear to be better now compared to last season as Fil-German forward Christian Standhardinger is set to join the team sometime in the Commissioner's Cup.
