14. lol

The supporters of Japan put that energy to good use. That is a big stadium and lots and lots of trash. Setting a good example for any children watching.

5. A fine example of the goodness that sports bring to our collective table

Win or lose it is the experience of playing together that matters

15. Sports is not exempt.

England and the football hooligans. Philly and drunk Santa. Brian Stow. Philly fans booing seriously injured players. Pacers vs Pistons vs arena attendees. Philly fans throwing up on innocent bystanders during a game. Assorted CA rivalries gone berserk (49ers v Raiders; Giants v Bums). Philly fans assaulting another teams mascot enough to break his leg. Rival players attacked, even stabbed and shot, while playing their games. Philly fans throwing a beer bottle at one of their own side's players.

And that's the short list of the times sports was a means to divide and hate.

8. Reminds me of Congressman Andy Kim, who famously helped clean up the Rotunda after the MAGAT riot

Thoughtfulness and dedication. The world could use more of that.

9. I thought of Andy, too

I was just about to post that, but now I will take the opportunity to tell or remind everyone that Andy Kim won re-election on Nov. 8. We in the teacher's unions were told it was an iffy race (republican area--partly Ocean County) and if we could, to please donate some time to working on his behalf.

Then we were on pins and needles when the third district experienced difficulties with the voting machines on election day.

Andy came to our teacher's conventions to speak and get to know us. We learned about his background and family.

However, it all worked out in the end! Andy won 54.6 and the republican got 44.4.



Tip of the hat to the Japanese supporters who showed the world a lesson about consideration, responsibility, and thoughtfulness.

10. Thanks for sharing that! It's great to hear he was re-elected by a comfy margin.

Goes to show the wisdom of voters in NJ's 3rd district.

To think Dems lost several seats by fractions of a % (plus the NY fiasco).

If they shoe were on the other foot, a Repug would be screaming fraud to the four winds - and that the NY Supreme Court had been "bribed by Soros!"

13. A sobering context for this.

My eldest majored in Japanese and spent time there. I assume he's right about this, but open to correction.

After the sarin gas attacks, they removed public trash bins. Japanese are used to taking their trash with them for this reason. Yes, a collectivist society that lends itself to such behavior more so than our individualist one. But I see this and am reminded of senseless terrorism.

I know. Killjoy here. Sorry!
