Swallows vs Marines
Originally uploaded by angrydicemoose

Went to go see the Marines visit the hometown Swallows last week in a gripping game that went extra innings (with the Swallows pulling off a win). The game was already going long when we got there and we left the game after the seventh inning with the score tied. I've seen the Giants play in the Tokyo dome and now have seen my favorites the Swallows play at Jingu Stadium. Just like any other trip to the park my feelings remain strong, that the Swallows are the Tokyo team and that baseball was meant to be played outdoors.

先週今シーズン初の神宮球場でのスワローズ観戦。最後まで見られなかったけど、試合は延長で東京スワローズが勝利。今年はすでに東京ドームでジャイアンツの試合も見たけど、引き続き感じている事は:1.東京+プロ野球と言えばスワローズ。2.野球は晴れていようが曇っていようが屋外で見て初めて楽しいと。

As a side, the Swallows fans are known to cheer with their umbrellas. I had brought my umbrella, but I preferred to tape the action.
