2012 Major League Baseball opened this wee early AM in Tokyo, with Oakland falling to Seattle 3-1 in extra innings.

For the A's, pretty much the same story as 2011. Nice pitching through nine, no offensive execution with RISP. For example, no outs, runner that would have been winning run, at second... our first baseman (who had previously struck out twice) pops up a sacrifice bunt.

Could be a long year if Oakland doesn't progress in the power spots, especially with the super-Angels and Rangers in the four team division.

No crying in baseball... tomorrow is Game 2.

Only problem I have with that guide is that I was holding a Bud Light while reading it. (Sigh!)

Can you provide a link. I want to send it to my Navy Son.

Bud Light?! What were you doing, gargling and thought you grabbed a bottle of mouthwash? Percy brought you one of your dog's beers? (I'd have a stern talk with Percy)... <ggg>

Seriously, the same guy who "owns" The Field for a week every year must know the difference between beer and Bud Light... (OK, you know I had to bust your chops over that one, but I'll stop now -- even I drink water from time to time)...

This one's pretty funny, too:

I actually drink several beers, it depends on the occasion. If I'm going to drink more than a few, I drink Bud Light because it's inexpensive.

I also drink Peroni (Italian), Sapporro (Japanese), both of which are in the fridge at this time. I drink Harp (Irish), Stella (Belgium) and Amstel (Netherlands).

I also found out that Guinness and Heineken taste much better in their home countries than they do here.

Stella is my soccer beer. When I was in Ireland and attended the Gaelic Football Championships, I drank Carlsberg.

In Japan I drank Kirin. It's much better and a different style of beer than you can get here in the States. I went to make a beer run while in Japan and I couldn't read the cans. Everything was in Japanese. I didn't know which brand to purchase, so I purchased one of everything (about 20 brands) and I went back to the hotel for a beer judging contest. I took notes and gave each beer a ranking as I drank them.

I stopped at a nice outdoor cafe in the botantical gardens, located in the center of Tokyo. They didn't have anyone there who spoke English. I didn't know how to order anything in Japanese, so for lunch, I ordered the only thing I understood and told the young lady ... Sapporro. That was my lunch. Ha!

Yeah, I know, I'm pretty pitiful.

At least I'm not a Clemson fan. I'm doing one thing right anyway.
