Baseball fever...

How is this for cool: the San Diego Padres have won seven straight games against some of the best teams in the league. And they are in first place. I am happy about that. In fact, I am spending so much of my time at the Major League Baseball website, they are going to give me frequent flier miles.

Anyway, this weekend, the Padres will play the Seattle Mariners. In Japan, the Mariners are very popular thanks to star outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who last year broke the record for most hits in a major league season (262). Thanks to him, there is plenty of Amercian baseball on TV here. And there is no doubt the Padres-Mariners games will be on. Too bad I won't be here.
