(SPOT.ph) For the first time in 42 years, the national men's volleyball team has a chance at a Southeast Asian Games gold. The team overthrew defending champs Thailand in a heart-stopping game on December 8, and will be fighting for the ultimate podium finish on December 10 at the PhilSports Arena.
Twitter was sent into a collective emotional overdrive during the deciding match—and with five sets keeping us all on the edge of our seats, it's no wonder people were freaking out. Check out the most charged tweets we saw, from ecstatic to just plain delirious, below:
We think they deserve it, too.
Sportscasting should be a competition in the next regional meet.
We don't get it, either.
Congrats, too, Gilas team!
Can't wait to see what else they can achieve.
Excuse us while we write down these names.
Insert a dozen fire emojis here, please.
You've got the Philippines cheering for you!
