Red Sox in Japan

I just watched most of the MLB All Stars versus Japan League All Stars game. I bet you don't get to see that in the US! Anyways, it appears the MLB team won, as they did last night, thanks in part to a home run by Ortiz. Manny was also there but didn't play tonight. Anyways, I say "appears" because the Japanese tv stations have what seems to me a strange tradition. When the clock says it's time for the next scheduled program they end coverage of the baseball game, even if it's not over. So the last I saw it was 5 to 3, MLB, Japan coming to bat in the bottom of the 8th. It wasn't even a particularly slow game. Argh.

On another note, here are two photos I took in Omotesando, Tokyo Friday night. No, that mannequin is not wielding a light saber. I'll get more photos up here shortly. I'm happy to report I had zero problems connecting my camera to my Linux box. Actually it was so easy I didn't realize I was done. That's Linux for ya.
