Game #8: Things just keep getting better.  Got a ticket for the Yomiuri Giants game against the Hanshin Tigers yesterday (mad props to the folks at Sakura Hostel for helping me find a ticket reseller: the game has been sold out for 2 weeks).  The Tigers blew out the Giants 7-0.
The Tigers vs Giants rivalry is a bit like Yankees vs Red Sox, and my ticket was right in the middle of the Tigers cheering club sec…tion.  INTENSE! Got mad dogged for a little while until I busted out the noisemakers and chanted with all the other Tigers fans.
In Japan there is a definite feeling of “separate but not equal” for foreigners. The place that seems to disappear the most quickly is at the ballpark.  Yesterday’s game was the best example of that.
