Friday Foto: Bloggers Vs. Hara
I had the fortune of joining Michael Westbay and Patrick Newman for lunch today; Patrick is in Japan for a week or so visiting family-in-law, so we made him come down to the Tokyo Dome and hang out for a while. Mostly we just babbled about baseball for a few hours until we all had to go our separate ways.
I thought it'd be amusing to take a photo in front of the Giants' pale imitation of the Bobby Valentine shrine, that is, the Tatsunori Hara statue in front of the Adidas store. We got a random lady walking by to take the picture, and she asked us in Japanese, "Do you know who he is?"
I pointed to the Fighters mascot dangling from my bag like "I'm a Fighters fan. I hate this guy."
