As a Japaneese fan and a neutral observer of " Qatar World Cup - 2022" should say the second goal scored by Japan was controversial.The ball had definitely gone out of the boundary touch line and wonder how " VAR" technology judges such close decisions or from which angle is the camera shot taken to reach a decision. Anyhow congratulations team Japan gor reaching round of 16.Ahoy !

As a fan of Japanese work ethics and discipline having visited A few Japanese Port city's was not surprised of the result against Germany.Both the players who scored the goals against Germany play in the " Bundesliga" in Germany .Didn't Japan overtake U.S.A as the largest Car maker in the World initially using " COPYCAT technology" of U.S.A car manufacturers?.Same holds true for soccer and wishing the Japanese team wins and qualifications into the second round in World Cup 2022

Nice to know that entertainment and social life normalcy post " Covid -19" has returned in Japan.On my recent travel across Zimbabwe, Zambia,Botswana and Namibia came across numerous Japanese tourists on a African.Safari.Have wonderful memories of my visits to Japanese ports in the late 20th century.

Having visited the Japanese ports of Nagoya, Yokohama and Tokyo besides another smaller Japanese port during my employment in the "Merchant Navy" should say have adopted a little bit of Japanese culture in my lifestyle.Shocked that a Country where discipline and courtesy is a part of living would be witness to such a dastardly assassination. Without knowing a single word of Japanese i travelled around Nagoya,Yokohama and Tokyo like a local thanks to guidiance and courtesy of the locals.R.I.P Prime Minister Abe.

Life is bizarre at times especially in show bizz.The " GODFATHER" set the trend for mobster films across the Globe with its stupendous success. Not surprised that this film was produced and directed due to a chance factor by the young 29 year old Francis Ford Coppola and not as a sure hit movie of its era.A lottery movie. Ahoy ! That's life and the movie business.

Thanks to my profession as a " Marine Engineer " on ship's that I got to visit Japanese ports in the 1980's and 1990's .The first thing about Japan that caught my attention was the " PACHINKO PARLOURS" not seen in any other country I visited during my infancy voyages at sea.Was amazed at seeing men in crowded parlors silently absorbed in a type of ball game ." Pachinko" is Japan's unique identity as a Nation .

It's not only " MONEY POWER" but also courage to undertake such death defying expeditions.Billionaires are numerous across the Globe but few have " EXTREME SPORTS" as their hobby.More people have been to outer space and the moon than the " MARINA TRENCH". Ahoy!

As a addictive sports fan and a lifelong fitness fanatic living in Mumbai sincerely hope that Neeraj.Chopra's gold medal at Tokyo 2020 is the beginning of renaissance in Indian track and field events.We Indians are otherwise totally devoted to the sport of " CRICKET" and most cricketers are dollar multimillionaires through the sport.Hope in future besides Neeraj.Chopra Indian track and field has a few athletic dollar millionaires, once considered a dream before Neeraj.Chopra got India its first Olympic gold medal in " Track & Field".

Sitting in front of my Telivision or Smartphone in distant Mumbai in India got totally addicted to watching the Olympic games from morning to evening non-stop.The games were a distraction from the global misery of the pandemic of the century " Covid 19".

The " TOKYO 2020 OLYMPICS" will be remembered for eternity as a sporting event that took place without a stadium spectator attendance but a superhot watched event across the Globe on Telivision and the Internet.As a Indian from Mumbai pleased that Indis eon its first track and field goal with Neeraj.Chopra winning the Discuss.Agreedthat for the local Japanese common population the Olympics was a visually non sporting event with everincreasining cases of " Covid 19".In life you win some and lose some and kudo's to Japan for successfully holding the " Tokyo 2020 Olympics" whom most thought would be a non event.

I am 61 years a former retired " Marine Engineer sailor" having visited Tokyo in 1995 and impressed by the city and Japaneses discipline.Happy to note that the 6o+ Japanese citizen is busy in helping the orderly functioning of the Olympic games in Tokyo .Yes, age is just a numerical number provided you have the enthusiasm .

Not the World record but the olympic record held by Florence Griffith .Was lucky to watch this race where the first 3 were Jamaicans.This women's 100 meters was the real showpiece of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics watched by a World television audience in a empty stadium.One event for the " Bucket list" of everyone watching it live on T.V.Ahoy !

Having personally visited Tokyo in 1995 understand Japanese discipline and planning and as a professional speculator my odds are the games will be a "T.V Spectator" success. Ahoy !
