TURNING JAPANESE

A CHRISTUS VINCIT SPORTS Special Presentation


LAND OF THE RISING SUN EDITION

Two prelates, one from either side of the country, have taken their baseball teams to the other side of the world. Today those teams opened up the regular season at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan. Those teams are the O'Malley Red Sox and the Vigneron Athletics.

The Sox have the pleasure of having two Japanese players (Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima), thus having the ability to turn Tokyo into an extension of Red Sox Nation. Not a bad thing!

At 6 AM Eastern time this morning, the Sox and A's faced off. The Sox came from behind twice to win in 10 innings, 6-5. Manny Ramirez hit two 2-run doubles, one of them the game winner. Rookie Brandon Moss hit an RBI single and a ninth inning game-tying homer.

SOX ROCK - even in Japan!
Peace,

Yeah, first day at 6amEST/3amPST, and it's a tight game all da way 'til Manny stands at home plate thinking he's pounded one over the Green Monster, oops.
SECOND DAY, Brian, Mr. Sawxxxx...
6-1, uh, My Oakland A's hammered your boys. No stars on da A's since Chavez is IR.
But, you guys should take the East again, easy. But watch for Detroit.
