Japan kicked Cuba’s butt, ending a great couple weeks of baseball.  Most surprised at the result.  If you would have told me before this whole thing started that the final would be Cuba and Japan I wouldn’t have necessarily blanched, but after the 1st two rounds, Japan looked lackluster.  But the Rising Sun rose to the occasion.  Ichiro’s seems particularly thrilled.  He certainly resembles Michael Jordan in the way press describes him, while Hideki seems to have more of a Magic aura.  I wonder how close that is to the case or it is the easier way to frame the story.
