Heh. I knew it would come eventually. Our favorite team made it onto a Japanese Quiz Show thanks to Matsui-san.
No, not one of the fabled "Japanese Game Shows" but... a quiz show, "Nep League".
This particular game is fairly simple. It's called "5 league". There's a question that has a '5 letter' answer. 5 people have to answer each letter in order, correctly. If you can get 5 questions in a row right, they pocket a nice 500k yen!
Here's the first question of the series:
Starting this season, the major league team that Hideki Matsui plays for is...
Los Angeles [ ][ ][ ][ ][ ]
Result: [red is good by the way]
Oh... so close...
Consider it the equivalent of saying "Angelz" instead of "Angels". Look at the blurry faces of shock on the first 4 guys' faces... hah.
Though, it's kind of ridiculous that he missed it, seeing that 4 / 5 letters are in the "Los Angeles" part of the question... oh well.
Keep this in mind for the future eh. Fun fun randomness.
