Megaquake: Hour that Shook Japan

Instead of watching the Raiders second string getting pummeled by New Orleans, I tuned to the Discovery Channel to see something more enlightening. A show called Megaquake. It describes the beating Japan took from the March earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown. It’s awesome. It lets us know the Pacific is a giant bathtub.

They interviewed a firefighter from Tokyo, Yukio Takayama, who was assigned to MANUALLY cool the collapsed #3 reactor with fire fighting equipment. The guy says how frightened he was but his sense of duty counteracted the fear.

I’m thinking while watching this, what a total bad ass Yukio is; on the bad ass scale of 1 (Bernie Madoff) to 10 (dude who shot Bin Ladin), he rated 54.

I just wanted to share that with you.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
