One of my students was planning to go early morning and wait in line outside!
I watched it in the warmth of my living room.
It was a strange event: half press conference and half meet-the-fans event. And very short. By the time the team owner had made a speech, and Darvish had said a few words....the journalists didn't have much time to ask anything interesting.
And Darvish is VERY good at wasting time by making one journalist ask his long question again.....Japanese journalists questions seem so LOOOOONG!
If you had had a chance to ask Darvish a question, what would it have been?
I would have asked: "Should Texas ladies be worried or excited that you are coming their way?"
* P.S. When Darvish left the event and walked through the door - was that his wife Saeko and one of the children just inside the door? A short woman with long hair was standing there holding a child in a Darvish sweat shirt. Was it Saeko ready to get the money?
