Going. So I hope it is a good game. Predict another 1-1 score, as it seems that they usually cancel each other out. But a Socceroos win would be sweet!

My father-in-law grows rice 50km from the plant and no one in the family will eat it, except for him and the mother-in-law. The rest gets sold to JA.
You would have to be crazy to eat this rice.

Might have been the loss that Japan needed. So they can avoid being over confident in the upcoming games. But they will still qualify easily.
Australia on the other hand let a brilliant chance to put a lock on second place. They were very poor last night. But they should still take the 2nd automatic slot due to the two home games left in June. The game against Japan will probably be end us a draw as they can cancel each out out.

There goes Japan's gold medal count down the toilet at the 2020 games. But what if Tokyo is selected? Surely then wrestling needs to remain as it is a major sport for Japan. Can't see the logic in this at all. Modern Pentathlon deserved to be axed instead.

Cool product and am going to buy one as soon as they are released. Should be a winner for Sony. But my guess is that the anally retentive life guards at the public pools in Japan won't let you use them as you won't be able to hear their inane announcements and warnings. But it will also be good for running.

Hope they don't get asked how much Japan spends on it's para-athletes. Next to nothing according to a friend who is a JOC delegate.

So all they can do to beat up support is to fly a bunch of banners around Tokyo? Seen them all over the city in the last couple of weeks. Unless the locals embrace it they are pushing sh#ite up hill.
Istanbul makes a lot more sense as the IOC likes the idea of new frontiers and such. Even though I live in Tokyo, I would hate to see the games here. Way better to spend the money up north where it is really needed.

The other theory going around is that fat is good for you and carbs are bad. It is the white refined carbs that people now (over) eat that is causing the explosion in obesity in recent times. I am giving this diet a go to see if it works.

Actually disembarked off a Yamabiko-Tsubasa shinkansen on Sunday afternoon at Tokyo eki and watched one of the teams go to work as I had a few minutes to kill. This team was mainly younger guys with a couple of 50+ ladies. It was interesting to watch them work with military like precision. They do a great job on a thankless task.

Raced there last year and the water quality was surprising good. I have swum in dirtier water in other places in Japan and Asia. But I still have to agree with tmarie's comment. The aim was to get out fast.

Anyone go there besides me? So how can most of you knock the event? The pole dancing was a very small part of a good night. Even the ladies in the crowd enjoyed watching it.
And as a networking event it was also very good. Met some key people in my industry as well as making some new contacts.
No, I don't work for JT, eCentral, or a foreign Chamber.

The biggest mistake that they made on Sunday was only two Suntory Girls serving beer in the bleachers. Was served in my seat only once in the 5 hours that I was there, the girls simply couldn't cover it. More beer = more fun. At least it was not like the Bledisloe Cup debacle where they sold out of beer by half time. The lines for food and drink were long, but I have seen worse at Tokyo Dome.
And a lot of you are missing the point about Sevens. I am a rugby fan and Sevens is not rugby in its pure form, but all "razzle dazzle" cheap trills. One big party! If you want real rugby then go to a club game, Super 15s or a test match. The atmosphere at the ground was definitely flat for a Sevens tournament. Some tried to get things going, mainly the foreigners, but the locals didn't seem to want to react. Or know how to. Hopefully next year will be better as promised. And with fuddy duddy Mori running the show, that ain't likely.
