Japanese Sports Radio

Listening to sports radio in Japanese doesn't make it any more incomprehensible than it is in English.  There is something strangely comforting about this.  The sound of a ball hitting a bat, the cheering crowd, the excitement in the announcer's voice.  These are all things I can understand in any language.  From a distance, all things are equal.  We win, we lose.  The feeling of an experience.

But I would still like to get closer here.  I would like to be a shade closer to understanding, to belonging, if ever that could be possible.  I wonder what path leads to that place.
