Manila Vanilla

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

Arenas follow-ups

Here's an image that sort of puts you in Gilbert Arenas' shoes during one of his adidas store appearances. There's just a wall of hands pointed out at you, trying to get a piece of you. Looks a little like a zombie film, or Sunday service at an evangelical church. Either way, it can be scary, and Arenas proved himself to be a cool customer by handling it well and making a lot of people happy.

Read below for a series of quick posts offering the deleted scenes from Arenas' Philippine tour. Well, they weren't deleted, but they never made it into my story.
