Handkerchief Prince Saito Yuki is worth a stare

Of course I have no interest in watching sports. Athletes, on the other hand, are a perfect invitation for gazing and dreaming. Recently I learned about this famous Nippon Ham Fighters pitcher, a former Waseda high school and college star who has been nicknamed the handkerchief prince. Apparently he sweats a lot, and needs to frequently mop up.

These random photos attest to his professional achievements and gaze-worthy presence. I am not sure why these semi-naked photos are online, although I think wearing only lycra fluorescent underwear makes acupuncture more effective.

Who are your favorite athletes? Which university has the best men’s hair and fashion? Is any sports team better named than Nippon Ham Fighters?

 

Cat rescue in Nakano Sun Mall

Walking in Nakano’s Sun Mall plaza recently, I saw everyone staring up at the ceiling of this 1970s commercial corridor. And then I saw the uniformed rescue workers. Following their gaze, I saw a white cat perched on the “catwalk” two floors above the ground. The husband had to explain to me that this is dangerous for the cat. Doesn’t it have 9 lives? I am not much of a cat-lover, but I do enjoy the chance to see so many concerned men.
