Go Team Korea!
Wow, I can't believe I just watched Team Korea beat Team USA 7-3 in baseball. First they beat Japan, which was an amazing achievement, but beating the feared Team USA has just made my year (so far!).
I used to love the Major League in the US. I have grown a little cold towards it after all the strikes and money rubbish that went on. When living in Korea I loved watching the OB Bears (now Doosan) and to know that the Korean league can compete with the Japanese league and the MLB is just great.
Go Team Korea! Japan to come and then it's on to the semi-finals. By making the semi-finals, the Korean government has said they may exempt players from the compulsory military service all young men in Korea must undergo. Considering the suicide rate amongst soldiers and the fact that two years of your life must go into the army, that sounds better than prize money to me!
San Nakji for President!
