Still in shock, man. Out of a whim while leafing through an old PBA hardbound book yesterday, saw an image of BSC Marketing ‘mate taken during his rookie season. Matched up against fellow Red Cub legend, Gerry Esplana. So easily at the drop of a hat, the Bedan narrative was a gimme. Was locked in as I typed on the keyboard and while words generously flowed freely, I remained clueless about his condition. Yet, found it as a consolation, I saw him ‘hearting’ my post. Prolly he read it too.
