Manila Vanilla

What it's like to be a U.S. Fulbright scholar, basketball player, journalist, and the whitest man in Metro Manila.

The Dream is Dead

Reporters. They're always checking the facts. It's usually a good thing, but this time, with Salt Lake Tribune reporter Steve Luhm checking out the Karl Malone-to-Red Bull rumor, it's just a killjoy.

Luhm called Malone at home to see what was really good. The Mailman's response: "Steve, I don't know what you're talking about." Then a pause. "Steve, you know me, don't you? Do you think I miss it that bad? No. Hell, no."

Well, it was fun while it lasted. As for Luhm, nice job reporting, but you could have filed the story without all the cheap shots at the Philippines. But, you know, what else do you expect from somebody who lives in Utah?

Rumor has it that there's a 7'6" retired Mormon NBA guy who wants to do some missionary work & play a little ball in Manila. No hunting time needed.
