This morning my Roomie was running around and freaking out because the washing machine in our building was "broken". It was actually just a minor snafu (I love that word) because she leaves for Osaka in the morning and didn't want to fly across the Pacific Ocean commando. Since she was already late for work, I fixed the machine and did her laundry for her.
This is the weird part; while waiting for her underwear to dry I turned on the TV, and guess what came on? The episode of No Reservations where Anthony Bourdain visits Osaka! In said episode he takes in a Osaka (or is it Hanshin?) Tigers baseball game. Oh my, I just gained yet another goal in life, which is to attend a proper Japanese baseball game.
So in return for doing the most menial of chores, I asked for at least a t-shirt to rock for my new found favorite Japanese baseball team. But what I really want is pictured below, which is a fitted New Era 59Fifty Tigers cap from sporting the 1959 logo. That shit is motherfucking TIGHT...but according the currency converter I used, it costs $70. Darn!
I am so, So, SO jealous of my Roomie...Osaka seems like such an awesome fucking city to run around and get lit up in. If anyone in that city reads this, consider this a shout out. You got it going on yo!
