Basketball in the park

Basketball is huge here in the Philippines. Like, huge. And today I stumbled on one demonstration of that love -- a giant TV screen set up in the park where I get my daily coffee, sponsored, charmingly enough, by KFC.

The crowd was pretty big, thanks especially to the perfect weather this morning -- balmy but not suffocating, with a pleasantly gentle breeze. The barristas at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, who all know what I need before I walk in by now, seemed to be enjoying the game, and lolled a little before getting me another coffee to go on my way back to work. Not a bad way to spend a morning break.
