What’s happening right now in the Majors must be better than anything what the schedule planers or the commissioner have imagined before the start of the season. Although the Phillies clinched the NL East division title yesterday there are still two playoff spots up for grabs and it seems that this will be a very close affair right until the end. This really reminds me of what’s happening in the German Bundesliga at the end of each season  with the European cup qualification or the relegation. But there we only have 34 days and games and in baseball it’s 162. To think that it all boils down to the last game of the season is really exciting. How frustrated does it have to be for the players of the losing teams?

I believe the last time I wrote something about Japanese baseball during August Hanshin Tigers (阪神タイガース) were firmly in first place of the Central League with a double digit lead. Now, it turns out the wasted it completely and only hang on to their division clinching top of the table by a mere 1.0 game in front of their archrivals, the Yomiuri Giants (読売ジャイアンツ). I don’t really know what happened as I didn’t have the chance to watch the games or follow the action in the numerous blogs covering the team’s actions in English but it seems that they were at their peak to early. I really hope they make it and win the division because I believe that this might increase their chances on winning the second stage of the climax series. (more…)

One great thing about going to punk and hardcore shows is that you’ll never know in which venue you are going to end up. I have seen shows at the strangest places in and outside of buildings. So it wasn’t really a surprise to find out that this show was taking place at the German equivalent of a bowling alley. There’s a slight difference from what’s known to the world as bowling though as “Kegeln” has 10 9 pins and the ball has no holes to grip it. German “Kegelbahnen” (bowling alleys) are usually infamous for their visitors as this is one of the most conservative sports in Germany. The players are rather blue collar type of people with a very low class humour and a great thirst for beer which is why a lot of Kegel-games deal with how much someone has to drink when he loses the game. So this was the setting for yet another great show set up by the guys and girls of Hit & Run.

I found a new job last week so after three months of unemployment and tight budgets I was finally ready to splash out some money on records to congratulate myself. I hadn’t been to the record store in quite some time so I had a lot to catch up to, although I wasn’t really following who released what over the past half year. This is what I found today. (more…)
