Posted in: Warriors-Wizards games in Japan to woo NBA fans, sponsors See in context

The big money the NBA receives comes from China with Japan being more of an afterthought. When it comes to foreign sports, Japanese are not usually fans of that sport or a particular team, just of the Japanese player or athlete that is participating. Only a rich person or a fool would pay those ridiculous prices to see an exhibition featuring a bad team like the Wizards.

Keep dreaming. Japan is looking out for the country's best interest and if that clashes with the constant line of ant-base governors looking out only for their own political interests, so be it.

the Senate Rules Committee voted 14-1 to approve the bill and send it to the Senate floor, where a vote is expected after the November election. The only senator to vote against the legislation was Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, one of two senators to stand and object to Biden's certification last year

Ted Cruz is an effin clown and a total disgrace. I can't wait for his inevitable fall.

Had to set a few more people straight about Aaron Judge's historic season and the comparison of Ohtani and Babe Ruth today. Stop believing the bs you see on Japanese TV and try to become a real and knowledgeable fan. Never happen so I still have to burst bubbles. It's fun, though! Lunkheads everywhere!

Posted in: Harris condemns Chinese actions in speech at U.S. Navy base See in context

The U.S. subscribes to a "One China" policy that formally recognizes only Beijing, but binds the U.S. government to provide democratically ruled Taiwan with the means to defend itself.

This is just bull. It's all about diplomacy. You know damn well that the U.S. "formally recognizes" Beijing is only a formality.

Yokosuka, outside of Tokyo is like saying Philadelphia is outside of New York. There are 50 kilometers and TWO major cities between Tokyo and Yokosuka. Who edits this stuff?

One of the best things about owning a house is there are no upstairs or downstairs neighbors to deal with. Also, no shared spaces, no waiting for elevators, no kids in my way. Can't beat it.

Don't answer the phone. I'm pretty sure they're not going to fire you while you are delivering their precious cargo. "I did not answer because I could get a ticket for talking on the phone while driving, further delaying the shipment."

Posted in: Kishida pitches Japan's permanent investment tax break at New York bourse See in context

smithinjapanToday 06:17 pm JST

'Kishida said the potential of the proposed tax exemption system should be as powerful as that of the Los Angeles Angels' two-way baseball star Shohei Ohtani from Japan as it could help the Japanese economy to achieve "growth and sustainability."'

> They can't go one second in an international forum without bragging about Japanese success stories (that they have zero part of). I'm just surprised he didn't also pitch it as "the only nation to have suffered atomic bombings, North Korean abductions, and major earthquakes and has shown our reconstruction and investment power" or some other such nonsense when making no sense.

Yeah, and maybe he doesn't want to face the fact that most Japanese players in MLB are not success stories and just average at best. Just keep throwing Ohtani's name around and everything will work out fine!

Posted in: Judge still looking for 61st homer as Yankees beat Red Sox 5-4 See in context

Well, nothing about him hitting his sixtieth yesterday but there's a story today. One of my old Japanese co-workers actually found out who he was yesterday! Since the Angels won't be in the playoffs, their only hope is that Ohtani wins the MVP. She saw on TV that Judge looks to be the leading candidate and she was depressed. I told her that I brought in a magazine three or four years ago, that was very visibly sitting in the middle of the lobby for a year, which had Judge and Giancarlo Stanton on the cover. She passed by the thing several times a day for a whole year and never noticed him. Typical though.

Just what does 'Western' mean? Here we go again comparing Japan to the world. You know what? There are a lot of countries in that category and a lot of low fat options out there. Stop playing into that Japanese superiority thing. It's tiring and incorrect.

Posted in: Osaka wins first match after Saville retires with injury See in context

Naomi Osaka has achieved more than all the other Japanese tennis players, female AND male, combined. You can hate but you can't take that away. I was watching her when 99.999% of the population knew nothing about her and if she never wins again, I'll still keep watching. Unlike most, I'm not a fairweather fan nor a hater.

So much hate whenever a story about her is written. Fact is, she is a highly successful athlete and all your jealousy and hatred can't change that. If she never wins another major, she would still be more successful than ninety percent of the people who have played the game. You can't take away that nor the Slams she has already won.

Hmm. Let me take a stab...He didn't like the wheel size or your choice of saddle? Maybe he didn't like the width of the tire? Can't really think of any other reason (cough, cough).
