Japan Vs. Korea - Are You Pumped?

Duke-North Carolina? Bah! Japan-Korea is the rivalry game we should be excited about.

You know what they say: When Japan and Korea meet on the baseball diamond you can toss out the records.

I don't know about you, but this tilt in the Tokyo Dome actually looks enticing to me. Maybe it's just the beer. Both countries are 2-0 and have won their games by a combined score of 44-6. Something will have to give. The only drawback is that it won't start until 3 a.m. Chicago time, so set your alarm. Or better yet, go out, howl at the moon, close a two o'clock bar, hit a burrito joint on the way home, and watch some international baseball until the sun comes up. Why not?

And remember, Dick Vitale will be nowhere near this one. Can you imagine listening to him at four in the morn?

Incidentally, I noice there is no North or South attached to Korea's name. Is this a unified effort by the two countries who are so cold to one another? If so, this should be considered a big deal.
