Responsibility as a daughter

My father suddenly announced that he strongly wants to go Hiroshima stadium and watch the game, Hiroshima Carp vs. Chunichi Dragons. But, his wife and son refused to go with him.

Then, it became MY responsibility staying with him at the stadium.








Fortunately, Hiroshima defeated Chunichi, it might be because of the Olympic games, Hiroshima have no player for it but 4 good Chunichi players have been playing as a member of the national team. But, the result was the result. I don’t mind if it was a little unfair for Chunichi!

The most interesting thing was, there were my aunt, uncle and their son in the stadium without planning and separately! I sent an e-mail to my grandmother (she is not the one I mentioned in a past post) from my mobile phone, and she told each of us the fact by her reply. We tried to see, but we couldn’t at all. It was a little disappointing for us, but no problem, because Hiroshima defeated Chunichi!

Do your best, Carp!

I really, really want to see the opening game in the new Hiroshima stadium on the next season!

NPB All-Star ’08 Players Election

This year, 4 of Hiroshima Carp players were selected by fans and players. I was so happy when I got the news.

But the next day, I found that some people thought the sponsor of the games, the MAZDA, is also the owner company of the Carp, and the company forced their employees to vote the Carp and that was the reason so many players were selected by the Carp.

I was surprised there were so many people who misunderstood that MAZDA is the sponsor company of the Carp!

I know MAZDA is the largest shareholder and advertiser and always support Carp as a big company from Hiroshima, but MAZDA is just a stockholder and an advertiser of Carp. Carp runs in a self-supporting accounting system (I’m not sure if it is exact word in English, but my translating system told me so.) and their profits and capital aren’t connected. It means that Carp must get money and pay for players by themselves without MAZDA’s help.

I don’t know if MAZDA forced their employees to vote Carp (I believe MAZDA just asked their customers and employees to vote the election.), but I know MAZDA is not the owner company of the Carp.

I hope more people become known about it.
