I know you came from Boston
coz you are wearing a Boston Red Sox baseball cap.
Romulo and Jessica are from Sweden, but currently live in Boston.
Boston Red Sox …
Hideo Nomo, a baseball player I respect, played for the Boston Red Sox in 2001 and
he threw his second no-hitter on April 4, 2001 against the Baltimore Orioles.
Nomo is only the fourth pitcher to throw a no-hitter in both the American and National Leagues (with Los Angeles Dodgers in 1996).
Nomo and I have something in common.
1. same birthday : August 31st
2. same roots : The Gotō Islands, Nagasaki
3. same Kanji character in name : 英 (Hide)
4. same year : moving to the U.S. in 1995
Anyway, this season, 3 Japanese pitchers are playing for Boston Red Sox … Daisuke Matsuzaka, Hideki Okajima and Junichi Tazawa.
Boston and Japanese … I think of Seiji Ozawa who is one of the world's most esteemed conductors and served for 30 years as the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
The Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) is an orchestra based in Boston, Massachusetts. It is one of the five American orchestras commonly referred to as the "Big Five" and it was founded in 1881.
The BSO plays most of its concerts at Boston Symphony Hall.
Speaking of the Boston Symphony Hall, I like the Live DVD ‘CHRIS BOTTI IN BOSTON’
Chris Botti, Jazz trumpeter, performed live with the Boston Pops at the Boston Symphony Hall on September 18 and 19, 2008 including the appearances from Josh Groban, Yo-Yo Ma, John Mayer, Katharine McPhee, Sting, Lucia Micarelli and Steven Tyler.
Especially, Cinema Paradiso featuring Yo-Yo Ma is incredible.
