Japan's playoffs are underway

Game 1 of the first round of the Pacific League Climax Series (cut out that laughing!) got underway Monday in Japan. The third place Softbank Hawks lost to the second place Chiba Lotte Marines 8-4 at Chiba. It is a best of three series and the next game will be at Chiba. A third game, if necessary, will be in Fukuoka. The winner plays the first place Nippon Ham Fighters in a best of five series.

The Central League will not start its Climax Series (I told you to stop laughing!) until October 13, the same day the Pacific League will start its second round. The Central League is still finishing up its regular season, even though all of its playoff spots are set. The Yomiuri Giants won the regular season with the Chunichi Dragons second and the Hanshin Tigers third.

NPB games are fun games to watch what, with the cheering and the noisemaking.

Someday, I hope to attend a game.

If I promise to say, "Yes, yes, I know that's not really their name," then am I allowed to say, "Go, Ham Fighters?"

If not, I retract this comment.

You can what you want. Just know that if you do the latter, you will receive tacit scorn from me.
