I Saw Manute Bol in West Hartford, Connecticut.

August 15, 2006

It was at one of those restaurants for the patrician Connecticutese where the food is almost good, and the atmosphere is almost sophisticated. In came this nearly eight-foot-tall black man in Ecko gear who looked kind of like the two or three half-remembered photographs of Manute Bol I’ve glanced at in my life. He had to dip his head really really low to get in the door.
Wikpedia says he’s 7′ 7″. Everything I know about Manute Bol I learned just now from Wikipedia, because I did not know how to spell “Manute Bol.” I do not know about the basketball. I like typing “Manute Bol.”
