I have decided to record my experiences watching Japan’s World Cup 06 campaign in haiku. Most if not all the games will be watched along with my friend Hiromasa Shirai. It is to him that I dedicate this literary endeavor.

Haiku 09 – 02:34
Hope remains alive
The odds are stacked against us
Who am I kidding?

Haiku 10 – 03:34
GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! GOAL! GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!!!
What? Is it? Can it really…
Is it possible?

Haiku 11 – 03:46
Ronaldo Bigteeth…
Fat, not fat enough to miss
Where’s my goddamn beer?

Haiku 12 – 04:29
In drawing first blood
We only angered the beast
Gokorosama….
