Kim Domingo drew the loudest cheers from the crowd among the muses who paraded with the PBA teams during the opening ceremony of the league’s 42nd season on Sunday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Wearing a lovely red body-hugging dress that matched the colors of the league’s most popular team, the new Ginebra calendar girl obliged to selfies from not just the Gin Kings but also from the players from the rest of the league. Still, the heart of the 21-year-old model/actress belonged to Ginebra.
It was a no-brainer in picking Domingo, who can be considered a lucky charm to the league’s crowd darlings as she was announced as the top gin brand’s calendar girl for 2017 on the same day as Ginebra ended an eight-year championship drought in the PBA last month. Domingo initially accompanied team governor Alfrancis Chua at the start of the ceremony before standing alongside franchise player Jayjay Helterbrand during the parade of teams.
