Dennis Rodman's father, an air force pilot, abandoned his family when Dennis was just three years old. He moved to the Philippines and opened a bar. (He now runs Rodman's Rainbow Obamaburger restaurant.) After playing an exhibition game in Manila yesterday, Dennis finally met Philander Rodman Jr., sort of: they "only had time for greetings and handshakes." [AP]
