Red Sox in Japan

The Red Sox opened the 2008 season in Tokyo giving those of us doing time in Asia a once in a life time chance to see our home town ball club in a real game.  Needless to say… with the help of Hawaii classmate (Steve-o).. I got tickets and got my ass to Tokyo.

Next stop (right off the plane) was a quick dinner with Steve.  We went to a little Japanese joint under the subway tracks.  They had cheap beer.

The ride home proved pretty interesting.  My lovely friends convinced me to buy the child ticket from the ticket machine.  A then drunk me had to pay the difference from the ticket man when we got off.  I love having friends.
