For some of us who got hooked to the Ateneo-La Salle rivalry some seven to eight years ago, we watched then-collegiate star player Chris Tiu soar heights as he helped bring the Eagles their fourth UAAP championship after trouncing the Archers in the finals. (Such victory also commenced the historical five-peat that gathered the celebrating Ateneans around a bonfire!)
Chris was such a gem in the league—his adorned career (two-time Mythical Team Member, FYI!) served as a launch pad for a spot in Gilas and the PBA. He was such a star his most loyal fans formed a moniker for their fan club: Iglesia ni Chris Tiu—obviously drawing from the name of the church community of Iglesia ni Cristo, currently in hot waters with their massive “separation of church and state” protests against the Department of Justice recently.
Some smartass thought of injecting some laughs in the middle of this national affair with a #throwback photo of Chris when he ruled his own... kapilya!
