Sports: Two Round Balls, Here and There

Japanese soccer teams (and their fans) keep cleaning up on Fair Play Awards. Now if only they could trade up…

But wait, the women’s team won both. Granted, it’s an East Asia (de facto) four-nation tournament. Still, it counts. And the Urawa Reds won both in the Asia Championship League (yes, there is such a thing). Let's hope that this is a trend.

The Celtics have hit a rough patch. Even on the road, they have shown that they can handle second, third-tier teams. But the Best of the West are on another level. I hope that this is only a temporary hitch, as everyone readjusts to life with Kevin Garnett.
