Manila Vanilla

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

New Yorker by birth, shipped across the globe to the world of malls, shanty-towns, patronage, corruption, basketball and a curious burnt-toast smell that wafts around at dusk

The Academy ... err, Society has Spoken

Move over Oscar! The Society of Professional Journalists, Western Washington Chapter has honored me with an award for writing the 2nd-best sports story in an Alternative Newsweekly in 2007. That's an awful lot of qualifiers, but it's still a great thrill to be recognized. You can still read the story, about import Rosell Ellis' season with the PBA's Alaska Aces, here.
