erika-ruggin-up.jpgCold, cold, cold day here. Ok, I know some of you are ‘colder’, but for me – this is cold.

Anyway, today’s top sports stories here are:

  • Paul Tergat pulls out of Fukuoka Marathon… [Daily Yomiuri] Apparently he has a conflict with his required military service…
  • Japan’s spikers lose to Spain (volleyball)… [Daily Yomiuri] That’s it for Beijing fellas…
  • JFA & Okada begin negotiations (football/soccer)… [Daily Yomiuri] If there’s a team worse off than Australia at the moment for coaching, it’s Japan. Is Okada – who had the position a decade ago – really the guy they need?
  • Fukuoka Basho considered a flop (sumo)… [Daily Yomiuri] Crowd numbers waaaaaaay down on expectations…
  • Redskins’ Taylor dies after shooting… [Japan Times] Horrific. Commiserations to his family.
  • Ueda might excel on the LPGA… [Japan Times] Can Momoko get it done where Ai’s struggling?
  • Hanshin withdraws from Fukudome stakes (NPB/MLB)… [Japan Times] Only the Yomiuri Giants pursue him in Japan now… me? Hoping for a Cubbies uniform for Kosuke!
