#29: I'm Big In Japan

Well, not really. But NHK, a TV network in Japan, came into Professor Thom's pub in May of 2007 and did a story for the good folks in the Land of the Rising Sun about the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry in New York, and they came into the bar while the Sox were playing the Yankees in the Bronx.

And naturally, Yours Truly pops up in this report, first at about the 1:40 mark of the clip. (I have to admit it was cool seeing my words on the bottom of the screen translated into another language.) Some other friends of mine are featured, too, but my friend Rhonda is the centerpiece of the story, as she's interviewed about being a Red Sox fan from Massachusetts living here.

It's all in Japanese, so those of you who don't speak the language, you'll just have to do your best with this clip. It's number 29 in the countdown. Enjoy.
