It's officially now called the Great Sendai Earthquake. I don't know how many casualties there are now.
It's just horrific. I was able to get into contact with my pals who live near Tōkyo. They are fine but my one pal thought
she was gonna die.

Sendai's Tōhoku Rakuten Golden Eagles are the popular team of NE Japan (Tōhoku means "northeast.")
Our friend Aki Iwamura will play for them this season.. also Kaz Matsui. The Eagles are down in Okinawa for spring
training so they are not in Sendai, though surely family members are in the area.

Their manager is an American guy.. former Nashville Sounds (Pirates affiliate) manager back in the day.. I forgot his name.
Let's pray that the number of casualties doesn't rise by much.

It was pretty surreal to watch yesterday. Don't mess with mother nature.

I pray and send good vibes that way...especially to keeping those nuclear power plants from melting down...
