Sorry. Russia has 2 players in Europe.

Posted in: New, old fans cheer Japan rugby win over Russia See in context

A good win for sure.. But when you factor in that most of the Russian players

don't play professionally outside of Russia( only one player plays in Europe), this

was the likely outcome.

To get a ticket for mens 4 x 100 relay final, with Kiryu-chan anchoring Japan to hopefully win the Gold, will be priceless! Tokyo 2020 will be a lifetime of memories for generations.

The only way Japan wins a gold medal in relays is if the US or Jamaica are DQ'd.

Osaka hasn't been the same since she fired her coach...

I am not stating my opinion, those are just plain facts.

Look at her before firing him, and now.

Aquarius, Pocari Sweat or that OS-1 dehydration drink work just fine.

Posted in: Serena, Osaka set up Toronto quarterfinal clash See in context

Ever since splitting from her coach, she hasn't played nearly as well.

The guy helps her win 2 straight Grand Slams and that is the thanks he gets.

Plus she has lived in the US since she was 2 or 3 years old but plays for Japan??

I am assuming it is for the sponsors and marketing aspect of it?

Posted in: Member of pop group Tokio referred to prosecutors for forcibly kissing teen See in context

I heard that Yamaguchi was actually in rehab for his alleged"alcohol problem" and

this all happened the day he got out of the hospital. He was in the hospital for liver

problems, and the day he got out he went and got drunk. Not sure if that is true, but

if it is, this guy has serious issues. He needs an intervention by his bandmates and the

company. But all in all, I would expect this to all blow over in 6 months or so.

Posted in: Japan Series games to have fewer extra innings See in context

Because the Japan Series allows for ties and lasts until one team has four wins, the ostensibly best-of-seven series can go beyond seven games. Starting from Game 8, there is no limit to extra innings.

So what happens if they tie all 7 games?? I know its highly unlikely, but it could technically happen..

Imagine a 14 game series.. lol I know it probably won't happen, but that would be hilarious..

Who cares if it is "only a gesture"? It is a step in the right direction..

I am actually surprised NK agreed to do it.

Asashoryu never did time. Harumafuji won't either. They both retired, and will have had

to pay compensation and nothing more. Their reputations are shot, but no jail time.

Posted in: Nishikori's erratic loss to Murray reflects his French Open See in context

Nishikori is good, but he just does not have the size and stamina to keep up with the top guys

ala Nadal, Federer,Joker, and Murray. I think he has great athleticism for his size, but the others

just are bigger and stronger. He has to work so hard just to keep up with them. That is just my opinion

though. I am no tennis expert, just a fan of the sport.

Takahashi is not cut out to be a good manager.. He tried and it doesn't seem to be working.

Posted in: Japan national volleyball team member arrested for theft See in context

His name is Kongo Oh. Changed his name when he became a naturalized Japanese citizen. He became a member of the national team this year.. Pretty sure he has played his last game with the team as well..

Posted in: Portugal scores in last minute to draw 2-2 with U.S. See in context

This was a heartbreaking "loss". The US is not out, but they will have to beat Germany or tie them and hope Portugal defeats Ghana.

The US has a few chances or ways to get to the 2nd round.

Win/draw vs. Germany Loss and Portugal-Ghana draw Loss and win tiebreaker vs. Portugal-Ghana winner

Tiebreaker: If the United States loses, Ghana would qualify if either game is decided by a margin of two goals or more. If the U.S. loses by one goal, Ghana would need to win by two goals or be involved in a higher-scoring one-goal win. For instance, a 1-0 scoreline in both games would put the United States through on head-to-head. So, if the U.S. loses 1-0, then Ghana must win 2-1 to qualify on goals scored.

Portugal needs a total 5 goal aggregrate.

Good Luck to the team against Germany!

Thanks to ESPN for the info.. lolz!
