The Ballad of Manute Bol

The Ballad of Manute Bol

"Who's the man right over there who's so incredibly tall?/Who's the man who blocks the shots as high as City Hall?" Why Manute Bol, of course, the 7 foot 7 Sudanese former Sixer who died at 47 yesterday in Charlottesville, Va. Keith Pompey's Inquirer obituary is here.  RIP to Bol, a folk hero so tall that he had the front seat of his Mercedes removed, and drove from the back. "The Ballad Of Manute Bol," by Kenn Kweder, the Bard of South Street, is below.
