We watch... so you don't have to.

Yakyu Has Been Very Good to Me

I turned on the news last night and found myself checking the remote and the program guide. I thought I was on NBC but it looked like I'd ended up on some double-digit UHF channel, since the guy on the screen was wearing a Yankees baseball cap but was speaking Japanese. They let this guy ramble on for over a minute without subtitles or translations, so I was sure I'd wandered onto Nippon TV.

Eventually the translator started talking and I realized I was watching a Yankee post-game press conference with Hideki Matsui and I thought, Holy crap! The Yankees have a player WHO DOESN'T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH!

This is some crazy modern world we live in. Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!
