Game 1: Red Sox vs. A's in Japan

The Red Sox opened the season in Japan against the A's. Here in Hawaii the game started at 1am so I did not get to watch it or listen to it and had to use my cell phone in the morning to connect to the web to find out....THEY WON...Heroically on Brandon Webb's 9th inning homer and Manny's run scoring double (would've been a triple if Manny had run from the get go instead of thinking he had a homer. Dice-K got a no decision but Okajima picked up the win!!

Manny got a check for $1 million Yen as the game MVP!
This season will be different for me as we won't be in Red Sox Nation broadcast territory until late May so the web and newspapers and if i am lucky the occassional sports bar will be where I keep abreast of my Sox.

I am glad the Sox kept Jacoby Ellsbury and Coco Crisp!
