Olympics: baseball

This is the last year that the Olympics will include baseball, so what better excuse to go see a game? Our tickets were for South Korea vs. Taiwan, and the action was more exciting than I would have expected.

Here's a panorama of the temporary stadium they've got set up in Beijing. I would say that in general, the set up, and the play, reminds me of college baseball. There were tons of foul balls that made it into the stands.

Kung-fu demo for the spectators after the sixth inning.

Inventive ways of staying cool under the sun: the always-reliable umbrella, or the piece of newspaper tucked under the hat.
