The office confines had a very very interesting visitor during the past week, as long-time NBA veteran A.C. Green actually visited the office and said hello. As part of the occasion, the peeps can opt to shelve the normal attire for the jersey of my fave team. I, of course, opted to go with my alma mater. I seized the opportunity and had a picture taken with him. Looking at the picture, I really have to figure out losing weight. I might turn into Big D’s mini-me. (if I haven’t already evolved into one)
A.C. was in the country as part of the Jr. NBA Training Program, which is a means to preserve the future of Philippine basketball by finding, then developing, young promising cagers from all across the Motherland. It’s a little disappointing that I failed you guys in getting a more investigative interview or something similar, but then again, it’ll pale in comparison to someone who pulled off the Matt Bowen interview.
Meanwhile, I also had the chance to visit the Manila International Auto Show. Here’s a little snapshot of my visit.
