Spotting Colonials: Pops, Mike, somebody else at McFadden's

A Colonial Hoops operative was spending some quality time at McFadden's on Penn and 24th a few days ago, enjoying the $1 Natty Light cans, and none other than Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Mike Hall, and a "really tall white guy" walk in. The operative said it wasn't Dirk Nowitzki (who has been known to spend time at random bars, but unfortunately I can't find the original blogger). He also said it wasn't somebody on the Mavs roster, so let the speculation commence.

UPDATE: GWhoops.com poster BM speculates that it might have been recruit Filip Toncinic, who is 22 years old and thus allowed to go to bars, even crummy ones like McFadden's.

UPDATE 2: When asked if the photo of Toncinic resembled the guy at McFadden's, the source said "Very possibly. It's so close that I'm not able to definitely say no."

UPDATE 3:
other sources say it wasn't Filip. So who knows!

UPDATE 4:
another GWHoops poster who says he was there says the mystery tall guy was Rock Battistoni, a former player. Makes sense.
