It was Japan 2, Korea 1 last night when I stopped clearing out my DVR and started watched the World Baseball Classic. You know I have a soft spot for San Diego's PETCO Park. I do not feel the same about LA's Dodger Stadium, though I do appreciate the retaining of their name in the name. great sentence.
Here's a story: once, when I was in Tokyo, I had Asahi on tap. I loved it. Now I almost always order Asahi when the opportunity presents itself, and I have a big bottle in my fridge.
If Japan wins the WBC, which it really could, especially with David Wright's broken toenail and all (kidding), I will give some of the credit to Asahi (not kidding). Did you know they've been in business (someone was brewing their beer) since 1889?
I vote to swap out Miller Lite and swap in Asahi as baseball's ubiquitous beer.
p.s. Japan will face the U.S. on Sunday in the semifinals at Dodger Stadium. that's what I was talking about up there. It's not yet been determined if Dice-K will pitch, though it's his turn. We do know that Cy Young winner / Padre Jake Peavy will.
