Random Sports Nuggets

How's this for a random little piece of sports related news? Today, apparently, former Yankee pitcher Hideki Irabu was arrested for assault in an Osaka restaurant. Sad.

In real sporting news, the annual Koshien Baseball Tournament has concluded and the winner is a local team, Osaka Toin. The final was perhaps a bit anti-climactic, with Toin cruising to a 17-0 victory.

Here is an interesting little post about watching the Koshien Tourney.
Oh, and in Olympics action, the U.S.A. Olympic baseball team (all amateurs - no pros) beat Japan (all pros) yesterday. Woo hoo!
