|||||USA-Mexico, 2-1 Mex in the 6th||]|
Watching the game last night, I had the most horrid, terrifying realisation:
Despite being on at 3am, despite having a bunch of unfamiliar Korean and Japanese names to pronounce, despite having a bunch of random Asian league stats to recite, the ESPN announcers?
Still did a far better job than the Fox announcers did during the playoffs. *Cough*BrandonArroyo*Cough*
And oh look, no multicultural Scooter.
This one ad makes me want to vomit: I'm Roger Clemens, American. Well, hoo the frick ray for you, asshole.
Last night they were talking about those titanium necklace thingys; apparently they are all the rage in Japan. They mentioned that Randy Johnson is the spokesman for them in Japan. Funny thing is, I knew that: I have to look at his fugly face everytime I go into my local Japanese grocery.
I am sorry, but I find it surreal that, in the 6th inning, Mexico leads the US 2-1. I don't know if I can take a third Korea-Japan game.
Two articles about Choi Hoon: Korea Times (with a photo of Choi-she looking a lot like a Korean John Cusack) and The New York Times (with some translations and a Red Sox shout-out). I need to look for his mythical MLB Afternoon book in Korea.
