    There will be a separate game thread for the actual game, but I thought it would be nice to have a thread to keep track of the articles, interviews, tweets, pics, and news coming out of their trip in the Philippines.

    Let's try to keep to articles from after they landed, and not articles from before they reached the Phillipines. Also, let's keep the thread clean so we can stay up to date with what's happening over there. Instead of the usual trolling and baiting that sometimes goes on in threads.

    As someone who used to commute near that busy intersection, i attest that there are indeed goats in that grassy area.

    Oh yeah, there is also a shopping mall just in front of it.

    Those sketchy KTV bars are a terrible idea. If you're really looking for that kind of thing, you could find the same in almost any nice bar in Makati or Ft. Bonifacio, spend a little more money, and get much better quality (not to mention safer).
