On Sunday, August 9, 2009, the arch rivals will once again battle it out at the Araneta Center; and as a tribute to our Mother of Philippine Democracy, ex-president Corazon Aquino; will have to wear yellow.
There are reports that the Green Archers will be wearing yellow armbands. On the other hand, yellow ribbons would be worn by the Blue Eagles.
Nine days before the scheduled game, Tita Cory was reported dead on her hospital bed at the Makati Medical Center. She was suffering from a cancer of the colon which took her life and gave the Filipino people a 10-day mourning schedule and a holiday for her burial. Both schools are very much fond of her leadership through humility stating how both love such inspiring leader.
Both schools have already requested their respective academic communities to follow suit; instead of wearing their usual colors, they are being requested to fashion yellow trends as well.
