Midnight Train to Seoul

Midnight Train to Seoul (and a ferry ride to Japan) I’m writing this post re-telling events from a few days back. I needed that much time to decompress.

Korean Baseball (Part Three)

It has been nearly two months since my last post about Korean baseball. I think that is too long, since Korean baseball is exactly the reason I’m here.

“Sunday Funday” (in Korea)

“Sunday Funday”   “Sunday Funday” is an American colloquialism that I like. Basically, it is a label that makes getting drunk on Sundays acceptable and fun. I dig it. I had a Sunday Funday in Korea.

The Importance of Body Language (When Travelling)

I now have a default move that has led me to abandon the Korean language. Explanation: I approach the stadium. I don’t have a ticket. I have a Samsung Lions lanyard. The lanyard means nothing; it is available for purchase at any team store. At the main entrance I meet the first stadium attendant. She

The Samsung Lions played at their home stadium against a team from a city I can’t pronounce. On a brisk day, the stands were sparsely filled. It was cold, and things moved a little slower.
