I went to a dinner last night with great trepidation. That afternoon, whilst I had been sailing, Japan played Ireland in the Rugby World Cup. I was terrified that someone would blurt out the result before I got to see the game. No one did and late at night I watched one of the best games ever. Ireland are one of the top teams in the world, Japan are not. Japan won. This is a huge upset based on courage, skill, endurance, teamwork, you know, the right stuff.
Sometimes a sporting event is a wonderful definition of national character. Japan be proud. Gambatte!
During the day, I went sailing but there was little wind. Great to be on the water.
