From J2 champions to J1 champions ... pretty good. And it was a good game, too. Nice to see the little guys win a big one (in any sport). Now if Kashiwa Reysol can pull off a series of upsets and win the upcoming Toyota Cup competition, then, like, Wow! What a way to end 2012 ...

Not to mention that a 39-year wait is over (Kashiwa did win the old JSL title at Hitachi in 1972, when they were still in Tokyo - they moved to Kashiwa in 1986). Aside from the Club World Cup they will also play in the Emperor's Cup (Japanese FA Cup) and I doubt they can pursue a Double if they are tired.

December 8: vs. Auckland City. Assuming they win (since Oceania leagues are notoriously weak): December 11: vs. Monterrey (Mexico). If they win: December 15: vs. Barcelona (Spain). If they lose: December 14: vs. whoever lost between Esperance (Tunisia) and Al-Sadd (Qatar) If they beat Barcelona: December 18 final That's one day after they have to travel to Nagoya Grampus for the FA Cup!!!

Congratulations Reysol! I was hoping they would win it, love to see teams win a championship for the first time.

I was watching all three games involving the championship challengers at once, streaming them all, it hurt my brain but it was great to see the scenes unfolding at each ground.

Reysol can look forward to the ACL now, it'll be a great experience for the players and fans.

Is Kashiwa one of B-class groumet foods?
