Being sick on the weekend is very annoying. It means I’ve watched a lot of the West Wing, listened to the latest Mark Kermode & Simon Mayo film review podcast twice, and am now very close to watching Korean TV even though I have absolutely NO idea what’s going on.

I did just check the mid-afternoon Yakyu scores tho- SoftBank are beating Chunichi 3-0; they are undefeated in the Kouryuusen so far! Why the hell do they do so well? This happened last year too, when they pipped us to the winner pennant and the huge cash cheque that came with it.

Yakult are losing to Lotte- good- and Seibu and Kyojin are drawing 1-1. Maybe I’ll watch that game. Maybe not. Hmm. Later today Hanshin take on the Nippon Ham Fighters in Sapporo, a lovely city. If you go there visit Brits Beat Club for the some great British indy covers from the inhouse cover band (a bunch of legends if ever there was one).

Anyway enough rambling.
