Hawwttt !!!

The Giants are hot!

Self watched the last out, just a minute ago.

Must confess, Giants relief pitcher Brian Wilson had self biting her nails.

Baseball is so much like Kabuki. There are these long stretches when nothing apparently happens. Then, suddenly, KA-BOOM! A flurry of explosive action.

Self knows whereof she speaks. She watched Kabuki when she was on a summer exchange stint with Sophia University in Tokyo. In fact, self almost chose to go into Japanese Studies rather than Chinese Studies. She finally decided on Chinese because China has a long and richer relationship with the Philippines. (Self, are you simply incapable of writing a post without digressing??!!)

But the drama of the pitcher standing alone on the mound, facing his demons (There were two Braves on base, self could hardly bear to watch!) is … EPIC.

Now, self is all wrung out.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
