Sporko caught this awesome bit of Carptacular athleticism, which reminds me that I haven’t been posting about my beloved Hiroshima Toyo Carp lately.

Seems like the Mighty Carp are humming along at their customary .380 winning percentage. Sure, that’s a lousy record, but a) it’s the Carp’s lousy record, and they own it with great affection, and; b) it’s still better than the Baystars’ ancestor-shaming .359.

Fucking Baystars.

    I see the BayStars just snapped a 5 game losing streak by beating the Tokyo Yakult Swallows 7-1.

    Every member of the entire Swallows organization should self-flagellate violently for this debacle.

    Must have been a mercy-throw by the Swallows; one of those magnanimous, gracious acts that allows the lesser party to save face and preserve a modicum of dignity.

    Swallows. Great name.

    You know what they say. If you can swallow your pride, you can swallow anything.
