Gambatte, Daisuke Matsuzaka san

This past Tuesday night, Brian, Kenny, Bun, Dan, Mira and I went to see the Toronto Blue Jays take on the Boston Red Sox - or, to put it another way, to see the Jays take on Daisuke Matsuzaka, renowned pitcher. I watched pretty closely but I only saw four different types of pitches - the newspaper said there was 8... I was a little disappointed. He threw many curve balls, fastballs and sliders, but one one or two of the last kind that I can't remember the name of right now. Anyhow, while it was touch and go for the first few innings, he lost his magic touch early on and walked a bunch of the batters - and then gave up a hit when we had the bases loaded. Fortunately for Daisuke he's backed up by some good outfielders who caught the pop seemingly without any effort. We won in the end, 2-1. Low scoring, but a good time. These are for you, Eric. :)

'Twas a fun time indeed. How did you get those frames? From a movie?

Nope, I have a rapid-fire option on my camera. No flash with the rapid-fire, so some are a bit blurry...
