Meanwhile Otani has homered in 4 straight games and leads the team in home runs. Oh, and he's also their ace pitcher.

Classes will include how to hit people with a toy hammer, how to act surprised for a "dokkiri" camera show, how to clap your hands and laugh your head off when another comedian says something that is not even remotely funny, and how to nod your head and say "soudattandesune~" while listening to older comedians talk about their glory days.

Why not talk about Ronaldo or something?
OK. Christiano Ronaldo has scored 3 goals in 13 matches in 3 World Cups. Honda has scored 3 goals in 7 matches in 2 World Cups.

Smithin japan, since Honda plays for Japan, a lot of his international games have been against Asian teams, due to the World Cup Qualifiers and Asia Cup. However, he has scored 16 of his 35 goals against "real" teams, including 3 goals in the World Cup. That's more than Wayne Rooney, who has only scored 1 goal in the World Cup. Honda has scored in every international game he has played in for the past 6 games. That's nothing to scoff at.
Stickman, it's true Asian teams do not stand a good chance of winning the World Cup, let alone reaching the quarter-finals or semi-finals. However, no African team has ever won the World Cup. Should they be banned from the World Cup? It's only recently that some African teams have been mildly successful (ie making it past the first round of the knock out stage). I'm hopeful that the Asian powerhouses will follow suit.

Bit harsh there, stickman. Tanaka is 25-12 over 2 seasons whereas both Irabu and Igawa have losing records and neither had a season with an ERA under 4.00

Too add to this, they discovered it when he had his annual "ningen dokku" which as an extensive physical check up. Thankfully, the cancer was in its initial stages and they were able to remove it with endoscopic surgery. He should recover soon.

Actually, sighclops, Edogawa has the youngest average age among the 23 wards of Tokyo at 41 years. Taito and Kita wards are the highest, at 46. Also, Edogawa has th most kids (under 15) among all 23 wards with around 100,000. I don't know when you lived there, but things have changed quite a bit in the last 5 years.
