*UPDATE* I've been painfully sick for the past three days. As soon as the seasons change in Daegu, I get sick. It's happened every year for 3 years. This year was the worst. I called in sick on Tuesday(I couldn't move), I went to work on Wednesday(I was sent home after proving that I was unable to speak at an audible volume) and I gutted out today. Scores with winners and losers. I've got some catching up to do.
That new intern at the Korea Times was a busy little bee this weekend. He posted not one, but two articles. In the first, the KBO has set an attendence record. Over 5 million fans have attended KBO games this season. In the second, Lee Seung-yeop has continued to hit the baseball well for Yomiuri. It's amazing what happens when ballplayers are given a chance to get healthy.
What we have here is Jerry Royster making good on a promise. When he first took the job, he said he would sing if they made the playoffs. Well. Lotte is in the playoffs and Mr. Royster led the team in a stirring rendition of "부산 갈매기"(Busan sea gull).
