Tammi and I went to see the Tokyo’s Yamuiri (sp?) Giants play last night (Monday).
The baseball ritual in Japan is fascinating. The stadium is split between the two sides and each side has songs and chants and rituals for each player.
The entire experience was fun and culturally very interesting, but the best part has to have been the beer girls. Unlike stadiums in the US where pisswater beer is poured and then carried around until when you finally get it, it’s warm and flat, this beer is always fresh. That’s because they pour it in front of you… from a keg… on their back! Yeah, really.
I love this place.
