The Majors

The New York Yankees have made it to the World Series. I root for them since Hideki "Godzilla" Matsui is in the squad. Even though his performance in the regular season was far from satisfactory, taking his potential ability into consideration, I think it great of him to play as a start member for the prestigious (wow, I spelled it right) team. And, man, it's exciting to root for a really strong team, you know, especially after seeing my favorite one in the Japan Leagues, the Yokohama BayStars, standing at the foot of the table all year.

Speaking of the Championship Series, I don't understand why the US media have disclosed the name and occupation of the guy who reached for a foul ball in Game 6 of the Cubs and the Marlins. Is this practice regarded as a usual one in the US? The guy may have done a stupid thing, which I frankly think he did, but does he have to be treated like a criminal or something by the news media? No, I don't get it.


even real criminals can't be identified in the press until they're proven guilty over here.
