wbc semi-finals: japan 9, usa 4


now batting, ICHIRO!

japan took down the united states of america last night in the second game of the world baseball classic semi-final round. it was a fantastic game for baseball fans - but not a great game for those who are fans of team usa.

the final game between japan and korea is tonight....

AND....


my good friend aaron who has been in town for the games signed us up to be a part of the opening ceremonies to carry in the flags of the participating nations. so are part of a group that gets to unfurl the giant canadian flag. if you end up at the game, or watching on tv, watch for us! the game starts at 6:00pm (pacific standard time on espn), and the opening ceremony probably starts some time before then. the above picture is from our dress rehersal today.
