The only SMAP member with talent. I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

SMAP, whose name stands for "Sports Music Assemble People," disbanded in December 2016.

I never knew that; another random collection of English words.

Mori out”!?! Oh! yes.. No. Wait,..no. (We got excited when we saw the headline) Wrong “Mori”.

This “Mori” hasn’t been in ‘entertainment’ for years. (Why is this not in ‘sports news’ instead?)

Regardless, best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Let me be clear, when I wrote SMAP member with talent, I was referring to his bike skills NOT singing or dancing!

Haha... classic only in Japan.

SMAP - one of the most successful boy bands from the late and infamous Johnny's Jimusho.

We know this is not the 'sports section' but while we're on the topic in this section, why is it 'auto-racing' and not "moto-racing', as in "moto-bike'??

(In the rest of the world, 'auto' originates from 'automatic', 'automated' or automobile'.)

So he crashed a motorcycle in an "auto race'. Hmmm.

I bet he regrets quitting Smap. At 46 still racing to earn a crust.

While the others are loaded beyond need and still making good bread through royalties and TV.

The guy is loaded. He’s not doing it for the pay check silly.
