Manila Vanilla

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

A nice nod

Just want to quote and link a flattering link I received in the Wall Street Journal Daily Fix sports blog, which quoted and linked me.

It's too long and too rich in dazzling details to excerpt effectively, but Rafe Bartholomew's Seattle Weekly feature on Nate Robinson, the self-proclaimed "small guy from Seattle" who has enjoyed a breakout season with the Knicks this year, is basically the only piece you need to read on N8. If you were ever curious about how much Nate likes Will Ferrell (a lot) or how hostile crowds taunted him during his college days (by chanting "Ga-ry Cole-man"), or anything else about this fascinating and unlikely specimen of hoops excellence, this is the story to read.
