There’s a decades long tradition of mostly male rockers dancing at the entrance to Yoyogi Park. They are sporting nearly identical 1950s greaser big hair and outfit. Maybe they were young when they started, but now they’re getting a bit older and drunker. I’ve heard warnings that they do not like it when non-members join the dance. On the plus side, are the tattoos and the sheer love of dance.
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?
